He has my vote -- again.
You didn't vote for Romney? =(
He has my vote -- again.
Gary Johnson is a globalist sellout. No.
Hillary is a globalist sellout. Wants to change the constitution to the citizens detriment. NO.
Trump is a Nationalist who believes in the US constitution. Easy choice YES.
Trump should be officially endorsed.
I thought that Gary Johnson and William Weld would be an ideal third-party alternative to Clinton and Trump. And I don't consider a third-party vote to be wasted, because it sends a message, although one that is not entirely free from ambiguity. I have voted for a weaker Libertarian ticket before, and do not regret it.
But there's a problem. Hillary Clinton is, in my view, an inauthentic, untrustworthy individual who lacks the courage of her convictions, many of which I'm not fond of anyway. But Donald Trump is far, far worse, and his candicacy is a sick and dangerous joke. He has no business being anywhere near a position of power in any nation of consequence.
A vote for Garry Johnson rightly expresses my view that the two major party candidates are not worthy of the office. But it fails to communicate what is perhaps a much more important message -- that Donald Trump is singularly unfit for this office, orders of magnitude worse than Hillary Clinton, and no one like Trump should ever be seriously considered as the nominee of a major party, which in turn should be held accountable for its irresponsibility in supporting his candidscy. So, although I promised myself in 2008 that I would never vote for Hillary Clinton, I may end up breaking that promise, because some things -- though not many -- are even more important than keeping a promise.
His times aren't fast! A 33 10k and such is running medium pace for a long time. In all likelihood if he ran ultras he was slow. A turtle could outsprint him!
Trump is an idiot.
Clinton... Shouldn't be always from the same family.
I really liked a lot of what Sanders had to say. No way I could vote for Clinton or Trump. I don't want either of them in charge of the military.
I don't agree with Johnson on everything, but Congress has most of the power on my main issues.
My whole family and I are voting for Johnson.
As Johnson remarked in 2012, his real marathon times were better than Paul Ryan's fake times, and they still got less coverage.
(I'd still like to know why Ryan lied, and did so in such a flagrant manner. In light of his position and apparent aspirations, it's very unnerving to me. The people I 've known to do things like that seem pretty messed up.)
There is NO doubt that 4:37 man Bernie Sanders would THRASH 33.xx guy Johnson.
"Make America Sane Again" - Gary Johnson
In all seriousness, all my friends and I will be voting for Johnson.
I find several basic problems with American politics.
America is a de-facto two-party system. This lends itself to negative campaigning, rather than campaigning on merit, as much of a politician's campaign becomes "why you shouldn't trust the other guy".
Tactics like gerrymandering also serve to prolong a party's rule that doesn't accurately reflect the the will of the voters.
There is something wrong with how the parties chose and downselect their candidates. I'm concerned that, in a country as great as America is supposed to be, that a primary process has determined that Trump is the "best" Republican candidate, and Hillary is the "best" that the Democrats can propose.
If we held a popular vote, without any party politics, would these two trickle to the top?
best marathon time, 2:48
Best 10K, 33:45
Why does your first sentence end in a question mark, and why - after all these years - haven't you put any effort into improving your writing?
That comment about Trump believing in the Constitution is hilarious. It's only 7:40 a.m. but I doubt I'll read anything funnier today. I doubt he ever even read the Constitution.
I will be voting for Gary Johnson, and I have never voted 3rd party before.
Both major party candidates are terrible.
I don't agree with Gary Johnson on everything, but he is 100x's better than the alternatives.
I hope that others will recognize that voting 3rd party is not throwing your vote away. Very few people actually support Hillary or Trump. With the right campaign strategy, Johnson could actually have a shot.
Also, beyond his running accomplishments, he has also conquered every notable mountain around the world, among his other outdoors exploits.
Ironman? Leadville?? These are reasons NOT to vote for him. For the most, ultra-endurance people are mentally unbalanced, desperate people seeking attention and spending untold hours punishing themselves all in the name of "look at what I did!!!!"
Generally there is something wrong with them. And since I believe he accomplished many of these "feats" while governor, then we definitely shouldn't be voting for him. Training for ironman, 100 mile races, and climbing mountains on other continents.....WHILE governor?? If you are governor, you should have about 30 mins a day to workout. The rest of your time: DOING YOUR JOB and then being with your family.
Seriously. we don't need another "endurance hobbyist in chief", like Dubya, who spent hours and hours riding his mountain bike while he could have been figuring out ways to do his job better.
We know a lot of people don't like Hillary or Donald?
Maybe we should vote based on PRs.
What do you think?
RW says the LIbertarian candidate for President - Gary Johnson - is quite speedy.
â€œFor startersâ€”best marathon time, 2:48, Fiesta Bowl, 1984. Best 10K, 33:45. Best Olympic triathlon, 1991, 2 hours. Best Ironman Hawaii, 10:38, 2001. 16 marathons (Boston 2002 3:13ish). Leadville 100 mile run.â€
He's also got more executive experience as a politician than Trump or Hillary as he was the governor or New Mexico.

Gary Johnson believes that climate policy should be unregulated and should, instead, be dictated by a free market. This guy is actually dumber than Drumpf.
Libertarian is just another type of fantasy land living republican.
No thank you. Ever.
remember that lefty supporters of third party candidate Ralph Nader gave us the worst president since WW2. A completely incompetent fool, george bush 2.
Those who voted for Nader are guilty of electing GW2.
If any moderate or lefty types vote for Stein or the libertarian, you are voting for Trump and have as much culpability as those lefties who voted for Nader but really voted for Bush.
Be brave. Be adult. Don't vote for Trump via a third party, moderates.
