Teh Squeaky Wheel
I like to think I’m not getting older; I’m getting ornerier.
“My lawn…get off it!”
Hi Fatwa and good morning and happy Wednesday, GN!
Another day begins during which Donald Trump will say something stupid.
Trump will say something stupid, Hillary won’t answer any questions from the media, our FedGov will continue their rampant lawlessness and contempt for the Constitution; it’s like an evil, repressive version of “Groundhog Day”.
You can imagine how much I’m looking forward to another 95 of them.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
I heard some talking head the other day listing off the reasons why Gary Johnson wasn’t the right choice for President and I thought, hey, aren’t you the guys who keep telling us that no candidate is perfect and we have to vote for the best person?
While I certainly find some serious policy flaws re Johnson, I also I also think he’s a significantly more experienced candidate with a better track record insofar as fiscal responsibility and liberty are concerned.
While the SCOTUS is an important consideration -- as we can be pretty sure Clinton’s choices would be horrible -- we have absolutely no idea who Trump would actually nominate. Or what he’d really do in office.
While I highly doubt Johnson can be elected, as of now I’m planning to use my vote as a market signal. (And hope doing so might help nudge the Overton window in what I consider a salutary direction.)
I’d like to see Johnson participate in the debates, but given that we already have proof that some polls have been manipulated, I doubt that he’ll get the required 15%.
IMHO, the standard ought to be that if you’re on the ballot in all 50 states, you get to debate.
I preferred when the League of Women Voters sponsored presidential debates instead of the debates now being owned and operated by the DNC and RNC.
