You may like Gary Johnson, but he'll never get elected. Your real choice is either Mitt Romney or BHO. Do you want 4 more years like the last 4 (and likely even worse)? Then vote for Gary Johnson and you'll get BHO again.

So...if you live in a state locked-in for Obama, you should vote for Obama, because Romney doesn't have a realistic chance to carry your state. That's what your logic says: don't vote for someone who can't win must because your values align with them and you think they would make a better president.

George, why would anyone who objects to socialism vote for a socialist like Romney?

Romney is not a socialist. He is not a constitutionalist, but still a far cry from being a socialist.

It's going to be Romney or Obama this year. Which will do the most damage to the country? Do you really think that if Obama gets reelected, it will somehow strengthen the Libertarian movement?

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....
