    Well done. Now if we could just hear Priebus, Ryan and McConnell say that on Fox News. I guess expecting them to say it to Breitbart is too optimistic. But there's still time.

    Always here for you, bro. Please spare us the undecided voter crap. We all knew you'd vote for Trump.

    Go back and read my posts. Don't confuse challenging democratic seedy tactics with support of Trump.

    Thanks jkcerda,

    I was disappointed because I was considering Johnson this election. Good to know this was another democratic rumor being spread. My biggest concern with going with Johnson is that it is almost like a vote for Hillary Clinton :(

    Because wether they admit it or not all the establishment republicans want Hilary to win.

    Just like all the establishment Tories wanted remain to win.

    This election has convinced me that the U.S. needs to switch to a party-based parliamentary system. While the current system of electing the U.S. President has one big advantage -- the intense scrutiny and long campaign really tests the stamina of the candidates -- with TV being so important, there is no way to prevent 2016 from happening all over again.

    you are still promoting the lie he urged voters to support Hillary.

    pointing out Trump sucks is NOT endorsing hillary anymore than pointing out Hillary sucks is an endorsement of trump, your desperation shows.

    did you not start the thread? and the other thread where it was debunked as well? if "promoting" feel's too harsh then try "mistakenly posting the flawed misconceptions of a biased site" :D

    Libertarians are just upset that Trump has stolen a chunk of their anti-establishment voting base. If Trump chooses to stay in politics post-election, the Libertarians have the most to lose as they are already small fry.

    And here I though Trump was a slimy democrat who infiltrated the GOP. :rolleyes:

    Honestly, what's stopping you from doing a write in? Sure that candidate isn't going to win, but neither are the Libertarians.

    If that were combined with campaign finance reform, the country would be in much better shape.

    I firmly believe a lot more people are probably more in line with libertarian views and just not aware of it.

    Old news. He has been saying this for awhile and claimed he was talking for both himself and Gary Johnson.

    Seriously, don't waste your time / vote on third party candidates unless your vote doesn't matter. If you dislike Trump more than Hillary, vote for Hillary. Likewise, if you dislike Hillary more than Trump, vote for Trump.
