    Got my early-voting done on Saturday - one more for Gary Johnson - in a swing state, no less :tongueout:

    Want to criticize us or our votes? Go hangout in this thread:

    http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1448161

    This thread is a celebration of those voters that found the two established parties' candidates seriously wanting, and went elsewhere to fulfill their democratic duty of voting.

    At least you voted. It still better than the people who complain but never actually vote.

    Just did a little extrapolation between Youtube views of the main party presidential debates and the third party presidential debates, along with the online voting associated with the 3rd party presidential debate. I'll be surprised if Gary doesn't break a million votes considering the amount of dissatisfaction with the two main parties evident in the online viewing audience for the third party debate.

    Yes, it is unfortunate. Not just that the man is a blip on the radar, but in addition that the conversation between the two main contenders ignores some of the facets of governance that he pays attention to (particularly civil rights and foreign policy).

    Great news. If Romney doesn't win the Libertarians can become the scapegoat. They can feel all special while everyone hates them for four years.

    People will just be lining up to join in 2016.

    Sweet!

    I voted today and was going to vote Gary Johnson, but for some reason it said "(i.e. Barack Obama)" next to his name so I opted for Mitt Romney instead.

    Good for you though. You show that mean ol' GOP.

    Don't look at me - I was supporting him through the Republican primaries, just refused to fall in line behind Romney. No idea how that guy got to hold the mantle of Republican candidate for the Presidency.

    Regardless, you're thankful to me for giving you Obama, I may be thankful to you for giving me Romney. You keep assuming he's a sucking noise from Romney, when the inverse is true for a swing state like Colorado (where Gary's speaking today, actually).

    Good for you. Nevada is a swing state too and I wouldn't support either gun grabbing, big government ******.

    No, the people that voted for Romney in the primaries can be the scapegoat. If they wanted to beat Obama (and who knows, maybe Romney will win), they had to have chosen a candidate that was unequivocally better than Obama, so that voters could actually vote FOR a candidate, instead of against Obama.

    I bet everyone here feels real good about helping Obama.

    What fools.

    I'm so proud of doing a dumb thing! Wasted my vote instead of helping fire a marxist thug, I'm so patriotic!

    See, same problem, different spin as previous comment. "...so that voters could actually vote FOR a candidate, instead of against Obama."

    You mean the LARGE percentage of Republicans who gave the Libertarians the butthurt?

    Mybe you should look at yourselves and ask why YOU didn't have an electable candidate. After all you are a "real Party (in your dreams) aren't you? whats your excuse?

    You aren't too good with this whole "democracy" thing are you?

    If Romney wins it proves the Libertarians irrelevant, if Obama wins Libertarians take the blame for not helping him out the door. Either way it's a win for the Republicans and a loss for the Libertarians.

    I agree with this 100%. How Romney appeared to be the beat Republican candidate in the primaries is beyond me. I said the same thing about McCain in '08. Romney's actually doing better against Obama than I thought he would, but I'll be surprised if he wins.

    No.

    If Romney had 10 votes and Obama had 10 votes, and the thread starter votes for G Johnson, Obama still has 10 votes, not 11.

    Well you just enjoy that meaningless little tidbit. Especially if Obama wins by a hair and we all end up butt raped by our new healthcare plan. I'm sure youll be real proud of that and your new higher taxes.
