Yeah, because the Libertarian party is the magical cure-all for ****ty, corrupt politics. Get real.

Nobody's stopping you from voting for him. Just don't whine when he loses and you realize your vote in this election was for nothing. FL isn't ready to think outside the box. Twenty, maybe thirty years, sure. For now, it's firmly entrenched in the antiquated notion that this country's party lines are a two-sided affair.

I would vote for him but it would be pointless to do so, considering that 95% of all voters will vote for either Scott or Christ. I'm voting for Scott however, Crist is too liberal.

Some of you people are hypocrites to the fullest all of sudden Charlie Crist is too liberal after some of you guys voted for him back when he was a republican. Ha that's too funny and anyways Rick Scott has been a failure to this state so no I'm not voting for him neither is my family. Adrian was totally tossed aside and was given no mind so I suspect him to get a decent amount of votes but not enough to win. However the more people vote for him the more less likely Scott will win.

Depends. Are you certain that Libertarian voters wouldn't have voted for the 2-faced democrat up against the incumbent? The way I see it, any vote for the Lib. is a vote potentially taken away from either legitimate candidate, but likely more taken away from Crist.

Crist sucks, but he sucks less than Scott.

This is the sort of childish drivel that takes credibility away from a third-party candidate like Adrian Wyllie, and I, for one, am tired of it.

In any case, I have visited his website and seen videos and interviews, and sorry, he just does not seem "presidential", to borrow a term.


Nevertheless I would not discourage people who are inclined to do so from voting for him. There is value in it, despite the fact that obviously some people do not understand that the point of such a vote is not winning an election, but something else.

To wit, according to studies that I have read, on average third-party candidates tend to "take away" an equal number of votes from the two mainstream party candidates, and I tend to believe it.

So it can be an effective strategy. Some people can figure that out, some people can't, but in the end we see the results in terms of actual policy, and it is acceptable.

So far I have not seen a proposal on how to govern an entire continent of some 300,000,000 people that is more effective than the Constitution, which, by the way, makes no mention at all of political parties, and I doubt that we ever will, at least in the foreseeable future (like another century or two, hopefully three or four).

Anyway, Good Luck today!

Sigh.

I voted for Adrian. Guess what my second choice was? A blank ballot. (I never stay at home.) Don't assume all Libertarian votes are "stolen" from the pro-NSA-left or pro-NSA-right candidates.

A vote which is cast is never thrown away. It's the person who stays home who throws it away.

Congrats. He won't win.
