Don't Forget to Vote for Gary Johnson
Everyone I tell I'm voting for GJ tells me I'm an idiot. They say I'm wasting my vote. So I ask them why they are voting for Obama or Romney? And I keep asking why to any answer they give. And every time, it comes down to they feel they're choosing the lesser of 2 evils.
If you pick the lesser of 2 evils, you still end up with evil.
So while I may be wasting my vote, I can say I'll be voting for a guy that represents my thinking on most issues. I can't say that for any of the other candidates. And I haven't found anyone that's planning to vote for a candidate that they agree with on most issues.
I honestly have a hard time understanding how Obama or Romney can get anyone's vote. It's like answering the question do I want my eyeballs or my other balls removed? Seems like everyone should be answering neither.
Listening to people answer the question why are you voting for candidate X is like free comedy. But it's comedy in the Shakespearian sense where it's really a tragedy.
Stick to your guns Flip. Vote for the person you agree most with. Those who pull the 'wasting your vote' line are just wasting their lives by continuing to support the fraud that is the 2 party system.
Save your vote, it won't matter. Redskins lost their last home game before the election*. It's over.
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

I filled in the little dot next to GJ this morning.
I just heard on the radio that I live in a state where my vote counts. Hopefully I can get GJ over the hump today.
The way I see it GJ or MR will likely send Rooney back to Pittsburgh. Just in time for Lombardi #7 fellars!!!!! Let's go. Rooney the Vote.
I know if GJ gets enough of the vote he can actually participate in the next debates. That isn't a wasted vote.
Any idea how much vote he needs?

I believe 5% of the total vote for Johnson allows the Libertarian candidate in 2016 equal access to be on all ballots and receive campaign funding. That's the first step.

GJ would have veto'd the collapse if given the chance

Today, people just don't take politics seriously enough. Most people are content to vote 'as they always have', or 'as my parents did' without ever thinking through what it is you are actually voting for.
This situation isn't specific to the USA. Here in Oz, I hear so many people say " I'm voting for Labour/Liberal because my dad was a staunch Labour/Liberal supporter, blah freakin blah." That scares me. That indicates that no thought is put towards what direction our countries should move in. None. It just becomes a chore we'd rather do without.
Thing is- voting for who rules our societies laws is one of the most important things we can do. Every decision these guys/girls make will impact us. Every. Single. One.
The same people that choose to not vote (not a problem here in Oz- compulsory), or simply vote for whatever party because that's what they've always done, are the same people that whinge & moan when governments stuff up.
Fact is- it's our own fault our governments stuff up, because we've stopped caring, as a whole, what these politicians do.
So if you have a guy that you believe in.. and not because your dad believed in him, but because YOU believe in him, then damn well vote for him. Because that is the way we can get governments that do the right thing for it's people.
