I Like Gary Johnson

I'm in general agreement with Stossel and Johnson, but in today's circumstances no third party candidate is going to win any national office and very few will gain local office. Unless one of the major parties self-destructs and creates an opening, any change will have to be within the existing structure. Through more involvement in local Republican and Tea Party organizations and election of good candidates, the statist Republican leadership can be replaced and the Republican party taken over, as the radical Marxists took over the Democrat party. Either Obama, or Romney will be president next year and a bad president is preferable to a disasterous one.

Anthony,

People have been trying to make the GOP conservative for the last 50 years. The current nominee is the most liberal candidate yet. So you see that changing the GOP from within is not going to work.

And why would ANYONE vote for someone they believe will be a bad president?

Can I ask you this question when Obama gets reelected?

I'd vote for Beelzebub before I'd give Obama another four years.

Don't tell the libs on this board....they're apoplectic this morning.....

Common sense does NOT prevail with them. Emotion does...kind of like the left unfortunately. You can see this in their posts below.

Too bad too because I side with them on Domestic policy and would love to see Ron Paul as treasury secretary.

But it's a losing battle with the 4 or 5 on this board that are so invested in commitment/consistency psychology they cannot see the damage that will be done to this country (and their cause) that re-electing Obama would do.

But like the old saying goes....you can lead a horse to water....

king -

Your fear is what motivates you king. Fear of what the democrats will do.

You rail against the few individuals here because of their consistency?

I suggest you at least try to persuade voters to start looking at the merits of honest politicians.

Bizarre.

Maybe in 100 years we can begin to fix the Nation? Perhaps we should just stay home.
All political candidates call themselves freedom-lovers, but they are not. Neither major party really opposes government control of the economy or of our personal lives. I'm a libertarian because I see the false choice offered by political left and right: Democrats talk about personal liberty; Republicans talk about economic freedom. But what they do once in power belies their words.

I say we're best off if government just leaves us alone to our peaceful cooperation with whomever we please. Let politicians advocate moral behavior. Let them give to charities. But leave government -- which is physical force -- out of it....
