    Because if there is, then your argument for how/why you vote is illogical if you're saying you're voting for Gary Johnson. The only reason to vote for him, as opposed to writing in the specific person you think could do the best job, is you acknowledge to SOME degree that someone actually running at least has a better chance of garnering at least SOME votes, i.e. electability. If ALL you cared about was whose the right man for the job, whether or not they're actually running should be 100% irrelevant to your vote.
    Fair enough, perhaps I chose a poor use of words. Let me clarify: I don't take electability into account as much as I take into account how well of a job they will do.

    I can understand and respect that. I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with that approach. When it comes to voting, as long as a person has an explainable reason for their vote that is at least a bit more thought beyond "he's got better hair", then I have no issue. Our vote is one of the most important things we have as citizens, and it's up to each citizen to decide what's most important to them.

    What candidate out of those is more "left"? I vote based on realism. I wouldnt vote for "Green" or "Socialist Party" unless they had a realistic chance.

    I will do what I did the previous two elections. I will leave that part of the ballot blank and vote in all the other elections and ballot issues on the ballot.I refuse to vote for another piece of **** globalist pro-illegal scumbag and RINO.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Gary Johnson, if it was just those three. Not with a whole lot of enthusiasm though.

    I won't consider Hillary, ever. And while I like Jeb, I think this country needs to move on from the Bush family (and the Clintons).

    Are you kidding? Hillary is far right. She's a warmonger, corporatist, fascist, and her husband passed DOMA into law. She seriously couldn't be further from socialist ideals, or liberal ideals for that matter.

    Nicely summed up, TeleKat. And so very very accurate.
