I was an advocate for voting for Gary Johnson. I also was (am)

in favor of the Libertarian Party getting 5% of the vote so that they can be taken seriously at the next election, have ballot access and qualify for matching funds, to try to change that monolpoly that the two major parties enjoy.

BUT I am a registered Republican, that has not changed, and of course I advocate changing the party from the inside. I always have.

When the Republicans allow the NeoCons to ambush the primaries and the convention and give us a NeoCon candidate who is virtually identical to the Democrat - I would advocate voting for the Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson, in this case, in a heartbeat.

Only a FOOL votes for whatever the Republicans give us - even if it stinks to high heaven. And only a fool writes in the name of a NONcandidate, who never asked you to, when it will not be counted or reported.

And if the big money NeoCons continue to put a stranglehold on the Republican Party, and resist change, no one should continue to bash his head against a wall, instead of looking to the Libertarian option.
