    Thought I'd run a poll on the decisions of voters who consider themselves libertarians.

    I was just looking for relative measure of how many might have voted Libertarian if they hadn't fell for the lesser-of-two-evils thinking.

    Lesser-of-two-evils thinking is valid, as it gets you less evil. And less evil is better than more evil.

    I've seen a few Jill Stein supporters ranting at us from the left about the insufficient moral purity of the Democrats. You can spot them easily, given how every seventh word they use is "drones". Lord knows why they think anyone gives a crap, as most people are pleased that Al Qaeda is getting drone strikes up the yinyang.

    American Citizens are being killed by them as well. Lesser of 3 evils is no better hence me not voting for Johsnson despite him being 100x better than Romney or Obama.
