Throughout P&R and other political websites I have heard the name Gary Johnson kicked around as a possible presidential canidate. I did some research on him and found that he is the libertian canidate and I also saw some of the things that libertarians stand for which closely align with my way of thinking. While I admit I don't know as much about him as I do President Obama or Mitt Romney I do think that Johnson and the Libertarians have some great ideas. However I cannot in good conscience vote for him because he has no realistic chance of winning and by me not voting for President Obama that would be akin to me voting for Romney to to be perfectly honest I am starting to think that Romney is a clown. What are your thoughts? Would you consider voting for a third party canidate? Or Johnson ran under one of the big two would you vote for him? Any thoughts ideas or feedback is appreciated.

I despise the argument that not voting for one candidate is the same as voting for another candidate.

I'd seriously consider voting for Johnson except just like Obama he has stated that he does not believe that the banksters broke any laws. It's not a question if they broke laws, it's how many did they break.

Unfortunately, it ends up being true. It really sucks because it undermines democracy completely. You don't end up with the best or even who the people wanted. You can only hope to elect the lesser of X evils.
