    The statement stands, if you subscribe to a left/right worldview then you are ignorant. If not, then it doesn't apply to you.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Wasn't of voting age yet; however, if I could have voted, it would surely have been for a 3rd party, whether on the ballot or not.

    Re: Your voting record: 2008 and 2012

    2008: Barack Obama
    2012: Gary Johnson

    My hypothetical voting record since 1896 (the first year I consider to be a 'modern' Presidential election) would have looked something like this. The colors signifying the parties are used as they are on Dave Leip's Atlas forum; red represents the Democrats, blue the Republicans and green an independent:

    1896: William McKinley
    1900: William McKinley
    1904: Theodore Roosevelt
    1908: William Howard Taft
    1912: Theodore Roosevelt
    1916: Charles Evans Hughes
    1920: Warren Harding
    1924: Robert LaFollette
    1928: Al Smith
    1932: Franklin Delano Roosevelt
    1936: Alf Landon
    1940: Wendell Willkie
    1944: Franklin Delano Roosevelt
    1948: Thomas Dewey
    1952: Adlai Stevenson (Republican Primaries: Robert Taft)
    1956: Adlai Stevenson
    1960: John Fitzgerald Kennedy
    1964: Barry Goldwater
    1968: ABSTAIN
    1972: George McGovern
    1976: Gerald Ford
    1980: Jimmy Carter
    1984: ABSTAIN
    1988: Ron Paul
    1992: George Herbert Walker Bush (Democratic Primaries: Jerry Brown)
    1996: Bill Clinton
    2000: Harry Browne
    2004: John Kerry
    2008: Barack Obama
    2012: Gary Johnson

    I'd have been a partisan Republican from the end of the Civil War until the northern, urban wing of the Democratic Party became ascendant around the mid-1920s. Then I'd alternate between the mainstream parties and pro-liberty third-party movements, with the GOP becoming increasingly less appealing to me as time went on.

    I would never vote for a ticket with Nixon or Reagan on it, both because I find both men detestable and because I quite happen to like most of their opponents (Stevenson, Kennedy, McGovern, and Gerald Ford).

    Re: Your voting record: 2008 and 2012

    Individual candidates I would vote FOR since 1896, in the sense I genuinely favored them to become President:

    William McKinley
    Theodore Roosevelt
    William Howard Taft
    Warren Harding
    Gerald Ford

    Theodore Roosevelt
    Robert LaFollette
    Gary Johnson

    Al Smith
    Adlai Stevenson
    John Fitzgerald Kennedy
    George McGovern
    Barack Obama


    Individual candidates I would have voted AGAINST since 1896, in the sense I would have opposed their Presidencies under any imaginable circumstances:

    Herbert Hoover
    Richard Nixon
    Ronald Reagan
    George Walker Bush
    John McCain
    Mitt Romney

    William Jennings Bryan
    Thomas Woodrow Wilson
    Lyndon Baines Johnson

    Obama to my everlasting shame in 08 and Gary Johnson in 12.

    First time for both Democratic and Libertarian that I voted those parties in a National election

    Though my vote for Obama was more a vote against McCain.

    GJ was for GJ

    I have NEVER voted for a stinking republican or a stinking democrat in any presidential election since I started voting in the early 80's.

    They are all TRASH - and none have been worthy of my vote.
