Vote for Gary Johnson then. Get your tea-party buddies to vote for him. Get 99%ers and OWS-activists to vote for him.
You probably consider me a liberal, I consider myself a liberal and think you've got the definition of "liberal" ass-backwards. I consider myself further to the left than Obama is by any measure. And yet I find myself agreeing with the libertarian Gary Johnson's positions far more than with most of Obama's.
Give the outside of the box a try and bring some buddies with you. Two compartments isn't enough anyway.
I would consider Johnson, but I don't think he's tried hard enough. Why did he drop out of the Republican primary debates after only the first one?
I have done a lot of work for Ron Paul, I would rather write his name in than vote for GJ, except they do not even count the write in votes, so I would not bother wasting the time with a write in.
Plus, Obama is bad for America. Bad for our debt, bad for our culture, bad for bringing people together, so bad he could not even pass a budget, with Democrat majorities in Congress.
I want a budget. Voting for Obama or Johnson will not get that achieved. Voting for Romney I think there is a very good chance he can get it done, plus, I really like Paul Ryan. He isn't true blue Tea Party, but he did help pave the way.
