What I am trying to do is NOT get thrown off this site. I guess I must respond at least a bit more forcefully, though.
I know little about Johnson's views, but Johnson's stance on abortion is a deal-breaker for me. Just because I said I could support someone with whom I only agree about 50%, does not mean that there are not deal-breakers!
It appears that you believe Johnson is similar to Paul and I don't--just as I did not consider Barr to be a libertarian candidate in the 2008 election cycle. In addition, if you think Johnson could possibly win, then you need to follow your own advise and enter reality. HE WILL NOT WIN!
My response about "You vote as you like, I vote as I like" is in no way, shape or form an "I give up" statement--I said it in my original comment!! It's a statement of respecting the rights of others, respecting their right to think differently, to vote differently, to believe differently--something you obviously need to learn about! At the same time, it does NOT mean that I won't state my opinion, or speak my mind.
John Quincy Adams: "...Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost..."
Voting for Johnson would be voting against my principles...due to his abortion stance PLUS as already stated, it would be against my principles to reward treachery (by voting for Johnson)...
