Trump is, in my mind, a clear and present danger to this country; that overrides my "ideals" and replaces it with desperation to save my country from a corrupt and incompetent narcissist, who is using the office of president to enrich himself and his family, abuse immigrants who are the wrong color, destroy environmental protections and curry personal favor with despots and America's enemies for his own benefit.

    I will literally vote for anyone who can drive Trump out of office. Anyone.
    Well let's hope that the Dems put someone up who can capture those third party voters.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Theres nothing wrong with tbe libertarian ideology. Gary Johnson was just a poor candidate and does not represent libertarism well.

    Nobody really listens to mainstream libertarians because they are potheads who play both of the big parties against each other.

    I think that except for making a statement, voting third party is almost like staying home and not voting at all, considering it won't really affect the Presidential win.

    The poll question is simple...is voting third party throwing away your vote?
    Not for Leftists. It’s an odd form of patriotism.

    Destroyers of Liberty.
