  • I like him VERY MUCH! However, a vote for Gary Johnson is a wasted vote as he has NO chance of winning in this election.

  • Because it's a wasted vote. If I'm going to take the time to vote, I'm going to make sure it counts for SOMETHING.

  • Any vote that isn't for Obama or Romney is a vote wasted. I don't like it any more than you do, but it's the way the world works.

  • While he's pretty innovative in some ways, and I do agree with him on education. I do not share his views on the bigger issues like health care. And he's murky on environmental protections.

  • Thanks Dulls! ^^^

    I'm voting for Gary Johnson. I was going to waste my vote by not voting in the election but, that was not the example I wanted to set for my girls. Even though the choices suck this time, this learning event only comes around every 4 yrs. I want them to go with me & see mommy vote. I want them to understand that voting is a duty and a right.

    Don't agree. What the 3rd party movement needs is the momentum that comes from a strong turnout of dissatisfied voters. Change never comes easy in the political realm
