I'm not sure if I could actually vote for either candidate..
They both equally suck.
Can I write in Ron Paul? Will that mean anything?

I consider my self a Liberal person, but I believe in small government and maximum freedom.

I believe in Capitalism not Socialism.
I'm sure I made mistakes in my past votes.

But I really think my choices are more grounded now than they were in the past.

Who should I vote for, or should I even bother?

My state is going for Obama almost 100%

I think if you honestly and truly cannot bring yourself to choose one of the two....then Gary Johnson is a name that should appear and Ron Paul is always a good standby to write in if your state allows it. Missouri doesn't legally permit write-in's for Paul because he ran in and lost a primary in the state in the same election cycle.

I'd note you're not simply talking about staying home which I'm glad to hear. So many other things aside from the President to vote on with a 4 year general ballot.

Try Johnson......They used to make a good outboard
The snowmachines were a little to heavy though.

I'm glad to hear you have exercised your right to vote [Even though I didn't support those candidates] and are willing to consider voting again. You have every right either to write in [If your State allows it] or vote third party or simply exercise your right to abstain. Which I'm leaning heavily towards myself this time around.

Which is a vote of no confidence in either.

I think you're right.
I just took the test at "World's Smallest Political Quiz" and I scored 100% Libertarian.

Weird

I agree and thats probably what I will do, just stay home.
Not only would I be expressing distaste for all "choices" offered, I would also not be participating in what I believe would be the charade of voting.
Even if the voting process where to be actually un-corrupt, the choices have been hand picked by the same handler.

All choices with the exception Of Gary Johnson are fails in my opinion. Romney I can't stand and Obama I do not like as well. I may just write in Clik Clika.

Voting for a 3rd or write-in to show no-confidence is still a vote and statement. I hope you do go..if only for that much. If you stay home and simply choose not to express anything....then your opinion is invisible and literally doesn't exist to anyone looking at results now or years from now.

When it comes to voting, I have my choice and I'll talk folks into seeing it my way if I think I can....but...even folks voting for the other guy are people registering their feelings which becomes part of the record for all time and all to see. It's worth going...I hope you do. Whoever you do vote or don't vote for in the final result, it's about the last 'power' we have as citizens today. I'll certainly use mine until/unless it's literally taken from us.

If I was an american, I'd vote for myself to be president.

I think its time an average joe was in office to change the things that really need changing. When you have someone like goldman sachs funding your campaign, then you must ask the question if they even know you exist to begin with. It seems like all it takes is money to win. So that means only the rich will ever be president.

We should all just vote for ourselves. We know what needs to be done and we understand the needs of the poor.

Vote for the libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson. If they achieve 5% of the popular vote they will be considered a major pafrty and receive federal funds and benefits, like being in the debates!

Good reason.
I will vote for Johnson.

This better work...

You voted for those people, but you are a small Gov and capitalism proponent.

This makes no sense.

But it is good that you are seeking guidance.

Try listening to some conservative radio shows. What you need is a principled core that can not be changed by a simple argument. Really think about your values and what is important to you. Write it all down. The Franklin planner used to have a section where you could lay it all out. Study Covey. And then once you understand yourself, vote for the people that THINK LIKE YOU DO. And then trust them to do what is right.

And also, it is critically important to pay attention to what is going on off season. Right before the election they will say anything, You must know them from before, their deeds and their words from a year ago or longer.

Oh... Thanks!! I'd totally forgotten there actually *IS* a tangible benefit that comes from voting for Johnson..despite his odds of being elected at about zero. It'd slipped my mind entirely that his outcome in the placing % can have a big effect for 2016 and the next attempt.

Do you even know what Johnson's about? Have you heard any of his stance? Not that I disagree with some of what he has to say but simply voting for somebody because you disagree with the other two is missing the point of voting for somebody to represent you and your interests.

IMHO

Gary Johnson - Libertarian Party
Jill Stein - Green Party
Rocky Anderson - Justice Party
Virgil Goode - Constitution Party
Stewart Alexander - Socialist Party USA


There's a good start for research. You have a couple days to decide. Good luck.

I voted for Gary Johnson and announced it on ATS. I was surprised at the number of ATS members that said I wasted my vote. I don't feel that way; I actually voted FOR some one rather than AGAINST the moron or the warmonger or the corporate shill. It's a first for me.
