Consider: Gary Johnson
You know that I take the position that voting is a requirement of Citizenship, an obligation to the ideal of peaceful transfer of power and a respect we owe to every man, woman and child who has ever fought and/or died for the ideal of Liberty in America.
Given the choice of pulling a lever for President Obama or Mitt Romney, most would prefer to open a vein.
Write-in candidates are a diffuse protest, at best.
But you do have a genuine venue to cast a protest vote this cycle: The Libertarian is on the ballot in every state.
Is he perfect? Nope. Will he win? Nope. If he wins will our ills fade and will Unicorns start pooping Skittles? Nope. Am I a Gary Johnson fan? Nope.
But if you take the time to explore his platform, I think you'll find that you agree with more of his positions than oppose.
Does he offer a platform that won't make you hurl? Maybe...
Think about it.
Here's the link to his site.
