Having Johnson support the TPP and open borders is a no go for me. Stein is in support of an AR ban also no good.
All I can say is ...REALLY, this is what us Americans get!
During an interview with The Texas Tribune on April 12, 2016, Johnson discussed immigration and other topics. Johnson said, “I think we should make it as easy as possible for somebody who wants to come into this country and work to get a work visa. I’m not talking about a green card. The solution is to create a moving line. Don’t put the government in charge of quotas. There will either be jobs or there won’t be jobs. And a work visa should include a background check and a Social Security card so that taxes get paid.” Johnson also said that “there should be a pathway to citizenship, and there should be an embrace of immigration as something really good. They’re not taking jobs that U.S. citizens want.”
During Part 2 of a Libertarian candidate forum that aired on the Fox Business Network on April 8, 2016, host John Stossel asked Gary Johnson what he would do about illegal immigration. Johnson replied, “I would make it as easy as possible for those illegal immigrants to get a work visa as long as they haven’t committed any crimes.”
It is my understanding that the TPP does advance free trade,” says Johnson, “Is it a perfect document? Probably not. But based on my understanding of the document, I would be supporting it [though] in a perfect world there wouldn’t be a document like that, there would just be free trade.

I doubt many have read all of it (myself included), however the gist of what I gather is more cheap goods brought in from overseas.
Here is a good start: inthesetimes.com...
The TPP supports big business in a global way.

No, I was pointing out the absurdity of the anti Trump rhetoric and hatred.
That's what I said.
The problem for you is that either way, anyone defending Trump's words had the rug pulled from under them when Trump accepted that he was wrong. No matter how absurd you might think anti-Trump rhetoric and hatred is, you were still defending Trump's mistakes.

Imagine a scenario... Hillary and Trump where the captains of sinking ships, which one would you put your money on to help others and go down with the ship and which would be the first into a life boat??....
I also think Trump would have a f#cking amazing handshake, not that limp crap that the millenials use, a good firm look you in the eye handshake. The short of handshake that would seal the marriage to a daughter, the type of handshake that you get after a really good hard fought sports event where both of you ended up blooded and exhausted but the respect flows.. The type of handshake you get after stopping at the side of the road in the middle of no where to help a guy that hasn't got the right breaker bar for his truck to mend a flat but you do....
Every example you gave sounds like it came from a Bush era Budweiser or Ford commercial.
How can sane people argue against people who think like this?!
