    Re: Gary Johnson

    I don't know about anywhere else, but in Arizona the number Independent voters (called other here) are growing to a point where it's the 2nd largest block of voters. It's gotta mean something.

    That's great, but if they're still voting D or R it doesn't mean much.

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

    The system is rigged and as long as Americans buy into it it will continue to be rigged until we use the system to beat the system.

    No matter, once again Corpgov will expect most voting Americans to hold out their hands. Corpgov, as always, will place a warm turd in each voter's left hand and and another one in each voter's right hand. Next they'll ask each voter which turd they like. Sadly most Americans will dutifully decide between the turds they are given. As for me the two party Corpgov can keep their turds. I'll vote for the candidate who best represents my views.
    The RNC Chief, Reince Priebus, is from Wisconsin and is Walker's ace-in-the-whole.
    Priebus has an ironclad grip on the RNC, as seen with the GOP nominating Senate candidates NOT from the TEA party--such as Akin and Mourdock.

    Walker just spent the weekend with the Koch brothers in Palm Springs after being invited to the Adelson summit in Vegas last March.
    Both anti-Union billionaires love Walker.

    Walker has appeal to all sectors of the GOP--a new face for POTUS--two things the other candidates don't have--IMHO of course .

Instead, I cast my protest vote, showing my dissatisfaction with the two major parties. Does it change the outcome? No. But if I voted Republican or Democrat, that wouldn't have changed the outcome either. At least voting third party my vote actually says something.


    I vote 3rd parties, but it's never a protest vote... I always vote for those whom align with me the closest.... not who will win, not who is the lesser evil... just those whom I agree with.

    the 2 parties, and their supporters, seem to believe that our votes belong to them by default and it's somehow "bad" if we don't give it to them.... **** em', my vote is mine, it goes exactly where i want it to.... it never belonged to the GOP or the Dems... or even the LP
    sure, in the grand scheme, my vote didn't win the day.. or even come remotely close.
    but that's not the point of voting though.. the point is casting for those whom you want to represent you, nothing more, nothing less.

    me voting for Dems or the GOP is nonsensical.. I don't want them representing me .so why on god's green earth would I vote for either of them?

    By protest vote I don't mean I am not aligned with who I am voting for. It is a "protest" vote because I am fully aware the person I am voting for will not win. Other than that semantic difference, we are in agreement.

    Glad to see you're one of the Americans who votes for who he thinks will win instead of the candidate who best represents him. Then you come into this thread to mock us for voting for our beliefs when you don't?

    How's that status quo working out for you?

    Gary Johnson does not represent ME and I don't think he would win so why should I vote for him anyway? your argument makes no sense.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    So then you're saying the GOP candidates have accurately represented your beliefs? When's the last time a "moderate GOP" candidate has ever even gotten the nomination?

    You're ridiculing us for voting for what we believe in while you sit there and re-elect the same establishment republicans over and over again. Yes, how much more noble you are.

    1. I can't speak for others, but I've voted for Romney my entire voting life 2008 onwards. I agree 95% with his platform.
    2. I never said I was more noble, I said it just makes sense, for candidates to use Obama methods instead of what your ignorant candidates have done in the past.
