It wouldn't get him nowhere if RP supporters now formed some sort of cohesion towards backing another candidate. But none of you had that in mind, it
seems, so now you're scattered and have no clue, and thus are throwing away your vote.
No matter how you want to cut it, you are saying your vote doesn't matter. So if it doesn't matter, then atleast vote legitimately, instead of
pissing it away. If the RP supporters came together for another candidate, and RP backed him (instead of Romney, which he likely will), then it
really could make a difference. But like I said, you are now scattered and pissing into the wind.
I have a hard time taking someone seriously who holds your stance, furthered by the fact that you asked me who you should vote for in lieu of RP, and
THEN tell me that "thats my problem, telling you who to vote for".
Realistically, you are just beating your chest, letting the chips fall where they may and denouncing any responsibility, only so you can say that when
MR or OB are in office, "I told you so".
And no.. a vote for Johnson is not the same as a vote for RP. Simply because of the fact that GJ votes will be legitimate, reflected in the polls,
AND have the possibility to make a VALID statement. Not a non-vote RP which noone will ever know about except you.
