    I would seriously consider him.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Unfortunately those in congress don't give 2 ****s what their national approval rating is. All they need is their district's (house) or state's (senate) approval and they can keep riding their lobbyist's gravy train until the cows come home. However, I do think their low approval numbers can effect a presidential race. Maybe not this year, but one day.

    Re: Gary Johnson

    Gary Johnson, former Republican governor of New Mexico, would not be my first choice for the LP's candidate, but he isn't the absolute worst possibility. He has given support to the notions of federalism in the past, but there are contradictory statements he has made on several key issues that make me hesitant to lend him any support. Voting for him is not beyond possibility, especially if the GOP nominates someone I cannot give my support to.

    Currently the libertarian I am most excited about is Rand Paul, but he would be running in the party in which he currently holds a federal position, of course.

    Ultimately, politics *IS* a horse race. The only one who matters is the one who comes in first. Libertarians have been voting libertarian for more than 40 years and they're not performing any better today, and in some ways they are performing worse, than they did 40 years ago. Yet a lot of them keep saying that voting third party will make a difference. When? In another 40 years? Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Exactly, I vote for the best candidate. Not the candidate who has a good chance of winning that I hate the least.

    Too many Americans will only vote for candidates they think can win...which speaks volumes about them as voters and why one medicore/lousy POTUS after another gets elected.

    Remember America, if you vote for a candidate that wins and he/she ends up sucking and hurting America...you are partly to blame.

    Re: Gary Johnson

    I wouldn't rule out voting for him, but it's the presidential election, after all. If I'm going to vote third party, there's plenty of candidates who don't want to abolish the social safety net as we know it.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    I actually like most of the other choices, much more than Johnson. The dark horse last time around was Obama and he came from out of left field and over took Clinton...A Clinton!!! But he didn't run as a Green Party, he didn't run as a "socialist" or a Black liberation theologist. He ran as a Democrat and did all the right things to get respect from his party and now they love him and defend him to death. No Libertarian I know of has done that to date in regards to the GOP. Since we are somehow the only people who would actually listen to some of your crazy ideas. We welcome you in and you stab us in the back, every time. The mess in 2012 on a county level was horrendous. Ask Alaska, Iowa, and Maine. They have just recently finished cleaning up your messes and the damages you did to the state. In fact, Libertarians are dead set against party leadership and quickly throws them under the bus every chance they get. Follow Obama's model and you win elections. Follow the one you've been doing for years, and you lose.

    Yet, you guys think someone MORE radical than Barack Obama will be the change that changes things??? Lolz.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Dark horse? Obama was the clear number 2 even as early as this point 8 years ago (Jan 2007). He didn't come out of nowhere.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.
