Google results is shows Gary Johnson on the state by state breakdown.
Very avant-garde of Google.
I wonder how Roseanne's doing? Do you have her results?
I hope people in the US realize by next election they have a real choice besides Obama and Romney and actually vote for Gary and change the future of the US and the world. Lead by example.
I voted for Gary Johnson.
lol @ this just now.
Another vote for Gary Johnson here
We're just a bunch of tards now on food stamps. I predict Johnson will be just as irrelevant in 2016 as he was in 2012. It doesn't really mater though, as our country has gone too far to ever go back now. You're never going to convince the uneducated and unproductive majority to give up their free stuff.
1.139 million votes !
LOLOLOL. I agree he's not gonna be a good pres, like most presidents, but those tweets are just ludicrous.
This tweet reminded me of that movie with Kurt Russel as Snake Plisken in Escape from LA.
Snake Plissken is once again called in by the United States government to recover a potential doomsday device from Los Angeles, now an autonomous island where undesirables are deported.
lol. I love how they are hating on 3rd party voters and how the LP shouldn't be allowed on the ballot, but then they talk about Romney being less fascist than Obama...lol. They need to get over themselves, they are getting the same from Obama as they would have with Romney. Johnson 2016.
They reek of sore loser syndrome. It's unmanly. Even Romney had more dignity.
Yeah, not to mention their top reasons include no logic whatsoever...
1) Religion. He's not Christian!(lol? Even if he wasn't Christian, it is stupid to assume that he is bad or that being non-Christian instantly makes you anti-American. What are these people smoking? Many of the founding fathers were deist because they didn't believe that religion should be involved in matters of the state.)
2) He's a Communist/Fascist. Alright, there are obvious differences between the two. Socialism fails everywhere, so both systems are flawed, but Communism(in its non-perverted state) is stateless, Fascism is absolute state control of all. Obama is very Fascist, but so is Romney. The Republicans and Democrats are both Conservative parties in the classical sense. Classically, conservatism was defined as a desire to return to Mercantilism(or Corporatism if you wish to call it so), whereas Liberalism is the desire to move away from Mercantilism to a Libertarian, free-market society.
3) I don't feel like continuing this list, the rest of the reasons are just as stupid, but I'll end it here. Read people, read! Read about Austrian economics, read about Libertarianism, read stuff that wasn't written by stupid people who don't know what they're talking about and use pure rhetoric with absolutely no empirical information.
Unless they provide him time on the media in debates and discuss his policies versus other candidates about him/other candidates, the majority will be oblivious that there are even any choices past republicans/democrats. Disappointed that we have come to a point where it's basically 2 candidates. Would like to see more realistic options as I really think we need at least 3.
Why set a limit?
I say let as many people run for president as there are willing and let the voters decide for themselves. If we set any fixed number, we'll only end up facing the same problem as we do now with 2. The American People should be fully allowed to decide for themselves who they want to be president and they should not be restricted on their choices or the information they receive to allow them to make such a choice.
It almost looks like Republican and Democrat education agenda is to keep America stupid so they can remain in power.
It will end up like other Western countries where in order to get a majority, you will need a coalition. 3-4 voters should be enough to represent the poeple and still have a chance of representing a majority.
Technically we already have coalitions now and that is kind of the problem. Individually members of the republican party and democratic party are in it for themselves, but group together as needed to achieve their own personal goals when it is in their best interest.
And respectfully, your view-point is also part of the problem. You're still seeing this as X allowed. The key word and incorrect word and view-point is "allowed".
The Constitution says provided you're an American Citizen who was born here and is at least 35 years old, you qualify to run for President.
Beyond that, no one should have the authority to limit who runs for president and how many people can run for President or who is allowed to run for President.
The American People should be fully allowed to decide for themselves who they want to be president and they should not be restricted on their choices or the information they receive to allow them to make such a choice.
