As I said, there are only 13 libertarians in the whole country.  I vote for a party, not a candidate really... You can vote for the guy who tries to lower taxes, regulation and makes doing business easier or you can vote for the guy who does the opposite.


That's why I voted for Nader.  The only thing he said I liked was when the Democrats attacked him for helping W, he replied it makes no difference which party wins.  But he was the biggest third party vote getter, and I want to send the statement I want a choice.

Libertarian is often the third party that makes the biggest splash.  But I agree with you that I won't just vote for the party.  I'm disgusted they haven't nominated an actual libertarian since 2004.  That's why I only voted for them once since then.  Trump versus Hillary and there just wasn't another third party that made a statement "none of the above."

Not voting sends no statement other than you're indifferent and they should ignore you

Did you think Ross Perot or Bob Dole were somewhat libertarian?

I voted for Perot in 92.  I voted for Harry Browne in 96 though, the election that Bob Dole was in.   Bob Dole was a tax and spend Republican, nothing libertarian about him at all.  Perot was an anti-free trader.  Not libertarian either

Compared to Elizabeth Warren, they were almost anarchists. Grin Grin Grin
