I was first eligible to vote in 2008. I didn't like my choices, so I refused to vote. The same thing happened in 2012. This year, I thought that
maybe America might be ready for a Libertarian President...but no. I give up again. I would gladly vote for Austin Petersen or John McAfee, but the
Libertarian nominees are Johnson-Weld. At first I thought they might be ok...not perfect, but ok. But the more I hear them talk, the more I realize
that they have something to hide.
Peal back the shiny 'legalize marijuana' and 'flat tax' layers, and JohnsonWeld look a lot like BushCheney. Johnson is always very vague in
interviews and debates, and he relies on Weld to take the lead. Weld likes to flip-flop, and he has no respect for the 2nd Amendment. Weld wants to
ban "assault weapons" (which is code for semi-automatics), and he wants to take gun rights away from people on Terrorist Watch Lists. Who determines
who is put on a Terrorist Watch List? How do you get on such a list? How do you clear your name? Probable Cause is grounds for search, but it is not
grounds for taking away Constitutional Rights.
This is just one of the problems that I have with JohnsonWeld. Trump, Hillary, and Stein are already an automatic NO for me, but now I realize yet
again that we have no real choice. Different faces, but same old tyranny.
I should have known better than to get my hopes up.
