    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.
    Exactly. As it is at the moment, Corpgov's two ruling factions have decided that Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton will be the two final candidates. Already many, many sheeple are trying to justify their support for one or the other. In their minds those candidates are the only two who have a chance at winning. Not the two best, not the people who actually might upset status quo and move the nation forward, but rather the two who have "the best chance of winning". That is not democracy. Those voters have already given up on democracy.

    I vote for the person who best represents what I'd like to see in America.

    I voted for Johnson in 2012 and would vote for him again. In 2012 with the two major parties I lost faith in one candidate and didn't trust the other. In fact I do not trust either of the two major parties to do what is right for America. They are only interested in doing what is good for their party and to heck with everything else.
    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.

    A lot on the right were unprepared for him to overtake Clinton. The Clintons are pissed it happened as well.

    Edit: Obama was far behind in 2007. Not sure where you got your data.

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Good for him.

    No Libertarian I know of has done that to date in regards to the GOP.
    Why should they? They are part of an entirely seperate political party. The GOP thinks they own libertarianism...it's actually quite amusing. Too bad that's not the case.

    Since we are somehow the only people who would actually listen to some of your crazy ideas.
    Bull****. There's plenty of libertarians that try to work through the Democratic Party. I would know, cause I'm one of them.

    We welcome you in
    Lulz.

    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.
    Yeah, follow Obama's model: Promise a bunch of crap, flake out and go through with next to none of it, run things no differently than your predecessor.

    Great idea!

Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
    And the overwhelming vast majority of the voting populace always picks one of the "Big 2". Boy, that sure works out, doesn't it?

    i agree, i didnt say no one should vote for him i was just pointing out him winning is virtually impossible in 2016.
    Unfortunately, while its sad, i dont think the people will make that change on voting on a president alone.

    Yeah, because 80% of Americans is too chicken and too stupid to know what is really good for us.

    This post is interesting because you're praising Obama's tactics but the GOP has done everything to prevent what Obama had done.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.
