Gary Johnson: 'Vote for Me, Waste Your Vote'

Gary Johnson: 'Vote for Me, Waste Your Vote' | Biegert_GOPO | Scoop.it

Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate for POTUS, is a little known candidate for this election. He isn't even slated for any of the upcoming debates at the moment. However, he is comfortable with a lack of publicity because "he thinks it’s better to be on the “radar screen” than not at all."

 

Meanwhile, the Republicans are worried because Johnson is 'stealing' their votes, which in turn helps Obama.

 

Johnson replies that it is the fault of the losing candidate, not himself.

 

It's interesting that Johnson and the Libertarian party aren't getting as much media coverage since the swing states are such a big battleground. WIth so much room for "the middle," which Libertarians actually cover with a balance between conservative economics and liberal social ideals, the party should receive much more credit than they're given. Although the party may not be 'big' right now, I predict a larger following for such middle parties future elections.

Romney really has very little support from women - especially Latino women.Republicans generally use "anchor babies," they don't support abortion, jobs and healthcare are supported by women, they support the DREAM act, and Hispanic men and women are on the same side. I see this as the Republicans taking another dive for this election, losing a large demographic very easily to the Democrats. If the republicans don't rally all of their supporters, they can easily lose the election.
