I put this here because politics always end up being debated. But I have had a change of heart and after much thinking and researching, I will not be voting for Obama. Instead my vote will go to Johnson.



I figure my vote will be likely wasted here in Indiana if i vote for Obama, but if it helps the 3rd party in the long run...



Anyone else feeling the same? I talked to my hubby about it and he had no clue who Johnson was which is pretty sad.

I think our generation will definitely move towards libertarianism.



Our generation is socially liberal but we are not excited about dealing with the fiscal garbage dump that our parents and grandparents left for us.

I agree. I've seriously been doing a lot of thinking and finding myself being less liberal. Social issues are still big for me and always will be but why can't economic ones be equally important? It seems he is on the same boat as me. And I think that more states' rights make sense. It's too hard for one big government to keep track of everything. I think that some thing (like equal rights) there has to be federal regulations but for others? Not so much.

Good for you! When you vote for what you believe in it's never a wasted vote.



Ive been hearing lots of Johnson talk lately i'm hoping he gets quite a few votes.

We live in WA so our votes don't count either. We however voted for Romney. But good for you educating yourself! I love when people vote based on research! Johnson is a great pick also.

I think when more people understand libertarianism they find themselves more and more libertarian. nice job of not just following the herd.

Yea I've been trying to convince the hubby to look into h. We shall see. I wish more people would do research.



It's funny because some ex family I have are all voting for Romney which I'm really surprised about. They're the biggest mooches ever and so don't stand for anything he does except they're Christian, or so they think they are...lol...unfortunately I know a lot of people like that but on both sides.
