    Meh. A large portion of democrats aren't crazy about Clinton, and a large portion of republicans don't like the Donald. 2016 was an election of ****** choices. Right libertarians are stuck because other right-wingers hate drugs and lefties oppose libertarian economic policies. Then there's the fact that right-libertarian economic policies are based on well debunked economic theory.

    I don't recall - and I might be absolutely wrong - any president who bombed a country to help such bombed country from another foe, even after the leadership of such country (recognized by both national and international institutions) asked for help to a DIFFERENT country than the US in order to defeat such foe.

    deflection noted, democrats pretend to be against war until a democrat is doing the war crimes, then it's ok.

    Who has time to think about the slaughtering of desert peoples when a gay couple can’t get a cake at a bakery of their choosing? Get your head in the right game, friend.

    I think libertarians tend to be smarter than this image makes them out to be.

    I'm pretty sure not a single libertarian actually expected Johnson to win. If anything, Weld would be a better president (in addition to many other folks libertarians would support). Johnson was just the only libertarian stupid enough to be convinced to run in an unwinnable race. He was a throwaway candidate designed to keep the party relevant during the national conversations, and he succeeded at that.

    Call 'em as you want, the difference is substantial. Bombing a country we're not at war with, without asking for permission, after such country explicitly said that it doesn't want us, is borderline criminal.

    He was the poster child for an anti-legalization of marijuana campaign. He was not going to be courted to become a "Friend of Mary Jane" or give an opening address for them.

    Weld was one reason why many libertarians did NOT vote for the party :eek:

    Check your sources on that. Sure some fringe extreme libertarians didn't like him, but those folks would rather pan rivers for gold than use currency.

    I did, Weld is NOT a libertarian by any means. neither is Gary for sure and you are right, Gary was the only one high enough to run under the party banner.

    Between Khomeini, Israel, Russian actions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc.... I wonder if there been any since WWII.
    Still, you comment while truthful is a bit out of context me thinks. ;)

    I assumed US Presidents
