Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Even with everything stacked against them, the Libertarian Party has been growing quite steadily for some time now. Eventually, the major political parties and the mainstream media will not be able to cover up the corruption and lack of progress to stifle the 3rd party vote. The youth are moving to the libertarian party, and that is the best possible scenario for the party.
Alright...going to rain on the parade a bit in terms of a third party and why it's historically unlikely that any will ever truly get "mainstream", at least in terms of actually having a chance to attain higher office. This is a slightly updated post of mine prior to the 2012 election when some fanboys were going on about the Libertarian party becoming viable in a Presidential election.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
