    Johnson is not inexperienced, he is a two term gov of N Mexico.

    did you vote for anyone in the House or Senate ?, trying to claim that somehow you are above it all and not responsible is somewhat typical of you Franco, I predicted this correctly awhile back that you would claim that since your candidate of choice for POTUS wasnt going to win that you would claim your own personal mea culpa..

    Typical indy play to claim no fault, the fact of the matter is that WE as a country are all at fault for the direction our country is in, by the choices we have made and by voting and not voting, we all share culpability regardless of party affiliation

    I honestly have never understood this logic. I cannot see how the problems the country has can be the fault of someone who has been against the political practices of ou times. Few of the candidates I have voted for in the last 24 years have won. I would think it is the fault of the people who keep voting these people in. Short of joining a militia and inciting a revolution how can this mess be my fault.
    I'm curious of the logic
    thanks

    Hey Franco, maybe you should write the ad copy for Johnson. The libertarian ads are amateurish and are not up to the quality of a modern campaign. I would think from your writings here, that you could do a far better job.

    For Senate, I voted for Melacon (D) over Vitter (R). Vitter won.
    For the House, I voted for Dr Boustany(R). For 2012 he is running against a little Tea Party Nazi named Landry(R). I'll vote for Boustany again!

    I voted for Bush43, so I'll take that blame. I thought he was the lesser of two Evils, though I doubt Gore or Kerry would have gotten us involved in two needless wars.

    This country needs a Reformer! We ain't getting one on November 6th. If we are still around at the end of 2015, I am willing to wager that our National Debt will be around 20TRILLION. And, that if Romney wins, he will get the full support of the Repubs is raising the Debt Ceiling.

    Oh, and thanks Sarge. Going against the status quo voters is always a huge challenge.

    It's not your fault personally , it's our fault as a society, it's our pop culture where we glorify sports heroes and movie stars, and yes even supermodels, but maybe we should be glorifying someone else

    That's an old trick the Repubs and Dems like to use. Pander and give free stuff away for votes.

    Libertarians like Gary Johnson believe in a much smaller government that doesn't give anything away for free because they know if cost tax payers! Libertarians work for the people unlike what we have today where the people work for the Dems and Repubs and their wild frivilous spending.
