Right, right... I get it... but they're ALL idiots. Hell, we are all each our own level of idiot, so let's not put anybody up on that pedestal
please. So, what is the point of repeating idiots, as compared to at least attempting to dig one self out of quick sand?
I agree, I did not like Johnson's views... but I still voted for him. Why you ask? Because, the limitations of the 2 party system are so hindering,
that when the band aid gets ripped off, its going to really really hurt because the scab under it is so well formed. The longer we wait, the longer
it takes to heal and the more its going to hurt.
My goal with voting for Johnson this past election was not for him to seat the presidency... it was to establish 5% popular vote so 3rd party funding
for future elections was distributed more evenly... without the 5%, the red and blue stranglehold all the campaign funds as they are so good at doing.
Now, the next time we vote, because a 3rd party failed to get 5% popular vote this election, the hills of other parties entering the races are all
the more steeper and harder to climb. You mean to tell me that 5% of the population did not want to see either Trump or Clinton win does not exist?
It did exist, but Americans are so blind to the realities that the red/blue as a whole (with no counter measures) is the biggest flaw in our
When the 3rd party gets a platform equal to the red/blue one... red/blue campaigns are then forced to turn their policies to fit all Americans, and
not stay limited to their affiliations. Keep voting red/blue... they want that more than they even care if red/blue wins... its just easier for the
red/blue to know that Americans are brain washed by politicians. Why is it the red/blue politicians equate to living in 5 of the top 10 American
counties? They make no goods or provide services... they are policy makers.
But, red/blue idiot voters... which is almost all voters, have no legs to stand on when they say that Johnson sucked more than what we see now. I did
not vote the current schmucks into office, therefore I bare no blame. The fear of what's on the other side of abolishing the current party system
drive red/blue votes... I get it. But, deciding red/blue is a vote for our own wants/choices... at some point in time our votes should be steered by
what we want for future generations. I don't care what I want... I want better for future generations, and I don't care if I have to add hardships to
my life to achieve it.
Left, right, extreme, conservative, genius, smart... I could really care less. Why is one person the focus so much in an economy that is 300 million
members strong. I don't want a candidate that has an answer for everything... its called being human. I want more options... plain and
