Dilemma time

Argh, who to vote for?

Ron Paul - He has actively decided to not pursue a political career anymore, and so voting for him may be voting against his wishes, but he really is the ideal candidate. I want more just like him.

Gary Johnson - He's a very good candidate, too, and I believe an honest man, which we need more of. I want to support all honest men in politics, and a vote for him may give the Libertarian party more of a chance to get decent funding next go-round. But I don't know him so well, and I don't agree with some things he says. I'm just not a real Gary Johnson supporter, since my support for him is more symbolic than genuine.

Virgil Goode (since he's another legit write-in candidate) - On some issues, I agree with him more than I do Gary Johnson, and I liked that he seems determined to not abuse federal power. A vote for him may help the Constitution party get more funding. However, him getting the 5% is a long shot, especially with Ron Paul available.

... Goode is the least likely option.
