    That of the three known candidates for the Presidency, only one is telling the truth about his positions.

    Johnson gets my vote.

    Don't like some of his positions that could be considered globalist, but at least he comes by them on his own good faith and is honest about them. :thup:

    Libertarian Gary Johnson? Nice try. The dirty little secret is that the left knows well that a libertarian vote could only split the republican party because there is no liberty in the democrat party. It would be a wasted vote though.

    I have and always will maintain that, if everyone who desired a third party win actually voted that way, this would be a better country.

    That being said, my vote is not wasted as long as I vote my conscience.

    Besides, I'm in New Mexico, it'll go Obama regardless of how I vote.

    The conscience argument is bogus. If you were concerned about your conscience you would have joined the Tea Party and worked within the system to try to get a conservative elected instead of sitting back and pretending the Libertarian party is your choice.

    No pretending, White. I fall to the conservative Libertarian side of the scale.

    Yep and I am in KY so my state will go Romney.
    Better than Palin last time though ;)

    I cannot in good concience vote for any of the 3 candidates so I plan on writing in Jon Stewart to show I did vote and liked none of the choices.
