I'm sorry, what was the point of this article? "Sending a message?" If you want to do that, work through your local Party apparatus. I do not plan to do anything that remotely risks Obama winning, even if Mitt Romney was not my first choice as an alternative either. He is still worlds better then Obama, and you're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

dsmith956 - Amen buddy.

I prefer to admit to failing at converting people at rallies - to explaining how we lost the country to Bambam TWICE!

Mr. Johnson and his crowd need to show up - Pot Free - dressed nice - and speak in a manner that won't scare away the soccer moms.

Mr J-I'm not too proud of the fact that I did precisely what you advocate once upon a time (think Ross Perot). I, too doubt your sincerity?motivation. But thanks for taking yourself off my "usually read" list! BYE!

Roy -- Did you trade your vote back in 1992?

Also, I'd like to hear why you think I'm not sincere. I don't like Obama. I do like Gary Johnson, and far better than Mitt Romney. I'd like to use my vote to create a limited gov't, so I'd like to both add a vote to Johnson, but do so without swinging my state from Romney to Obama. I'm not alone. If this election is close, a small number of votes in swing states could make the difference.

If Republicans are so beside themselves that libertarians might cost us four more years of Obama, why are you just bitching and moaning and insulting the folks you want to vote Romney, instead of addressing the problem, either in my offered scenario or one of your own design?

I was not a supporter of Perot, but I think his insurgent campaign in 1992 did NOT cost Bush re-election (Bush broke his no new taxes pledge/case closed), and DID create a political force for reform without which Republicans would not have taken the House in 1994..

I second your comment dsmith956!!!!!

In 42 days, there’s an election to determine who will wield executive power in the world’s most powerful nation. Ours.

Lots of power is on the line. And with power comes fear. And with fear being such a powerful motivator, the polls will no doubt be crowded. Unfortunately, fear-based voting has its problems. For everybody.

I’ll spare you the chapter and verse on why you ought be scared out of your wits by the thought of four more years with Barack Obama as president. His sorry record is common...
