I've not made up my mind yet but Gary Johnson seems to match my philosophy more than either mainstream party.
Here's the thing about voting third party---it has to start at the local level. Only by voting in honest people who don't hitch themselves to the corrupt major parties will we be able to advance those honest folks on to the state and federal levels. In local and state politics, just one independent can often make a huge difference. If they are truly independent and don't always side with one of the major parties.
What I find amazing is that the msm was able to accommodate that whole slate of major party candidates and yet when the primaries are done we won't see presidential "debates" with 10-15 candidates up there---only two, the major parties will be presented. This gives us the impression that we must pick the "lesser of evils" because it is the major parties who have the money to hand over to msm for advertising. Furthermore, they are trained to ridicule third party candidates when they're not ignoring them completely. Believe me, I know, been there, done that.

It sounds reasonable because it is hind sight. I am not trying to come down hard I just think people have rose colored glasses on when it comes to Bernie. He has openly supported corrupt regimes and everyone gives him a pass. I don't want someone so blinded by 60 years of ideology that they cant recognize that its their ideology that leads to these corrupt regimes.
