You basically threw your vote away. At least if Johnson had 5% the Libertarian party could have had a much better chance in 2016

How would that have changed the outcome of the election? We do need a stronger libertarian party, but the DNC is further from what we believe than the RNC. Because America has tipped to being a welfare state, I expect it'll become a single party oligarchy. People now vote for how much the government can do for them, making the tipping point majority shallow and greedy. The Democrats are the party of entitlement spending, class/race/gender warfare, and picking and choosing winners, and proved they can win under the worst of performance history.

Welcome to the new America and the slippery slope of shared misery that Reagan warned us about.

A conservative voting for a moderate who flip flops from liberal to conservative just because they think he will win is a wasted vote. Should have voted your conscious.

Yeah, I was hoping the Libertarian party could garner 5% as that would have given them better opportunities to be recognized.

But that didn't happen.

Obviously several posters don't understand what 5% of the vote would have allowed. He wasn't expected to win.

I voted for him. When it came down to it, I counldn't hold my nose and vote for Romney, even though he would have been much less destructive than BO.

Libertarians need to make a stand, and take back the Republican party from the Big Government Left-wing RINOs that took away any choice Americans had.

And you CAN'T throw your vote away. There are 2 parasitic morons for every single productive intelligent American, and it will only get worse.
