Gary Johnson: Mitt is “without one molecule of brain” - Salon.com
Gary needs to spend more of his limited funds on getting the word out about what he is for, not pounding on the other two. Most people don't know what it means to be a libertarian.
I think it helps some by pounding on the other 2. I think it shows people he isn't afraid of conflict..
Have you ever been to that web site that has been around for many years now, that asks questions about your politics and then assigns you a ranking? Most peopl;e who take it come to find out that they are Libertarian. I think that most people would choose the libertarian platform, or at least a majority of it over what the big two offer, if they're given the info.
Yeah I have...even if people found out they were libertarian ya think they would actually vote that way seeing how libertarian candidates usually don't get more than 10% of the vote if we are lucky.
Trust me, I've been promoting the LP since the 1980s, people have no clue what the LP is about. Look how many people here have no clue. Even after the efforts of Ron Paul and his supporters many people still have no clue. The number of people on this board alone who think we're anarchists is staggering.
I'm interested in the Libertarian Party but I don't know a lot about it and until it becomes a viable visible party I can't imagine it will have any significant effect on American politics.
Well look it up. Its people like us that have to help make it visible...vote for its candidates,sign wave,hand out literature...this is why its such a big deal if Johnson gets 5% of the vote because in 2016 the party gets 90 million in funds and that will make a HUGE difference...the weird thing is the 1 party system knows damn well that the majority of Americans are libertarians...the libertarian party takes has a more liberal social policy than the dems and is actual conservative fiscally. We are what the people want...that is why they try to kick the candidates off the ballots and mute them...
I think that if you find out about it, you might just realize that you like it and will help work toward it's future.
I've always thought there was something wrong with Mittens and this is one of the things!
