Libertatem Regional Message Board
What do you guys think about Gary Johnson? The main criticisms I see of him is that he's much too beltway, but keep in mind he does have actual political experience. Do you think Austin Petersen would have been better just because he may have been closer to libertarianism (besides the him rejecting the NAP) and possibly be a better speaker?
Yes, I do think Austin would have been better. If at least just a better spokesperson
Johnson isn't the purest Libertarian but the LP needs to have a respectable candidate that a disgruntled R or D wouldn't write off as a nut.
Will vote for Johnson (I did in the primary) and hoping he can get on the stage with Trump and Hillary in a couple debates.
Petersen would of been a much better speaker, but wouldn't been seen as serious by the establishment, and probably wouldn't be in any polls. He's also too young, I'd rather have him run for senate or governor as a Republican in the next few years and then talk about say, being the nominee for 2024 or 2028.
Yeah, I think if there was any election where the Libertarian Party needs a respectable candidate, it's this one. With Clinton and Trump both being historically disliked, people are looking toward the Libertarians for solutions, and when that happens, the people need to see a Libertarian candidate that can effectively present the party as a sane and reasonable third option. It's basically impossible for the Libertarians to win the presidency, but if they poll high enough (I think the number is 15%), they'll get invited to debates and receive federal funding in future elections.
I consider it restitution for all the pain and suffering the RNC and DNC have put the LP through in trying to stay on the ballot. ;)
I started my day with a DOA, doo-dah, doo-dah..
Right. No one can bat a thousand, but all things considered, Johnson's the better Libertarian Party pick in my eyes.
Until the Reps and Dems move the goalposts again, of course. Regardless, there's only so much they can do to subvert public interest in libertarianism.
