    Why does it have to be a “protest vote”? How about I actually agree with some of the Libertarians over the other two candidates? Are they going to win? Probably not yet, but why should I vote for someone I don’t agree with? If people truly vote on issues, why vote for a candidate that doesn’t hold my values important?

    Most Republicans and Democrats are taking us to the same horrible destination, one is just trying to get us there first.

    BigGreen,

    ImVho, the GOP will NEVER be the DANGER to the USA that the FAR LEFT RADICALS of the DIMocRATS Party are in 2018.
    (Imo, the Libertarian Party nor any of the other 3rd parties will, in my lifetime, have any real chance of winning a TX election BUT the DIMs can.)

    yours, tex

    Unfortunately, often voting for the Libertarian ends up having the same effect as voting for the Democrat.

    While that may be the case, it is the voter’s right to do so.

    toddnjoyce,

    NOBODY is arguing anyone's RIGHT to vote for anyone they choose but rather if it's WISE.

    In a nutshell I think the two main parties can be summed as Dems are BIG GOVERNMENT and Rs are BIG GOVERNMENT-lite. Fewer calories, still as bad for liberty.

    The GOP has no idea how to sell conservatives principles. And since about ‘14 I don’t even know how you would do it. As the left went mental we are left with an impossible starting position from which we can get them to listen.

    I wrote him in, and felt great about doing so. What Romney and the GOP did that year was despicable.

    Never said it wasn't.

    But just because someone CAN do something does not always mean it is WISE to do it.
