Ron Paul or Gary Johnson and the Abortion IssueSubmitted by NobleFree on Wed, 10/03/2012 - 09:34
So I'm going back and forth on whom to vote for next month. I know the many arguments for voting for Gary Johnson and for writing in Ron Paul.
Though, I would like to add to the percentage of folks who voted for Johnson in order to make a statement, I lean more towards voting for the candidate that I align with the most.
One of the biggest problems I have with Gary Johnson is that I am a libertarian that believes that a child in the womb is a life deserving of protection. Now, please let's not get into the abortion argument here, but I have two specific questions that will help me:
1. For you pro-choice Libertarians, why would you vote for Ron Paul who is so staunchly pro-life?
2. To you pro-life Libertarians, why would you compromise on this issue to vote for Gary Johnson?
