No one left to vote for

I’ve tried to keep away from Election 2016, generally. Yeah, I’ll take on certain issues important in this election, and will take candidates to task on said issues, but generally, this election is such a clown show, that I cannot stomach even writing about this insanely bad lot of candidates who can’t wait to wield their AUTHORITAH! over Americans!

When given the choice between a woman who was either too stupid to realize that she was sending classified information over an unsecure server, or outright lied about it, and a man who is completely ignorant about nearly everything and has no idea what he believes other than his dick is apparently satisfactory, as is the size of his orange little hands, I thought the Libertarian Party was a viable choice.

At least I wouldn’t need a shower in boiling Listerine after casting my vote, right?

Nope.

The LP in all its retardery decided to pander to so-called “moderates” this year by nominating a gun-grabbing, Constitution-shredding, shriveled up nutsack as its Vice Presidential nominee.

Bill *spit* Weld.

Historically a gun grabbing asshole, who has as little respect for property rights as he does for the Second Amendment, has wormed his way onto the ballot, promising not to betray Libertarian ideals and swearing his views have evolved. Well, he betrayed that promise about five minutes after securing the nomination.

Here’s what this infected testicle had to say about gun rights.

Wants to deprive people of their right to keep and bear arms without due process? No problem.

Evil “assault” rifles? Check.

I was willing to put up with a lot from the LP this year, given the assclownery that has been the hallmark of the two major parties this year. Gary Johnson is far from perfect. Very inexperienced when it comes to national security and foreign policy, which is particularly important to me this year. But that said, I’ve met Gary, and I’ve spoken to him. He’s willing to listen and learn and even change his views if a good case is presented! I was willing to accept that.

But Weld? No way. If anything happens to Gary, this fetid yambag becomes POTUS?

smod-001Nope.

If I want a statist in the White House, I’ll vote for one of the major party candidates.

So screw the LP, and screw Weld. I was willing to put up with a lot, but not this.

Looks like I’m writing in SMOD 2016.

  1. I have a friend from high school, who has been pushing Gary Johnson. I have been easy on her until now, only mentioning that he seemed a little interested in raising money like the big boys. I am afraid that now the truth has to come out. I had ruled out the Libertarians, just for the fact that even though they had a lot of things right, they went too far, for me, on some things. Principles are fine, but we also must be realistic in todays world, as well, and when I see many Libertarians looking to abolish licenses for doctors and some of the like, I start to get my guard hairs up. So I didn’t really look into Billy Boy, and his Bill of Rights Blasphemy. Sorry, I am on norco for kidney stones, too, and I am a little loopy. At that is my story and I am sticking to it.
    Thanks for this story, and I am passing it on. And thanks for the posts over the last few days. Even though I, as always, am late to the party, they make me think, and that is what it is all about.

  2. Still voting Lib’tarian, as it’s the only way to get momentum into breaking the two-party lock on the political system.

  3. I’ve been supporting Johnson for a while now, but the Weld pick is extremely disappointing. We’ve held our ground against gun control after almost eight years of Obama and I don’t buy Trump’s conveniently recent conversion as a 2nd Amendment supporter. we could weather a Weld Vice presidency.

    I can’t vote for Clinton or Trump, so with Johnson in good health, I’ll still vote LP. After all, he’s not going to win…that’s not the goal here. Breaking the duopoly is.

    1. I was an enthusiastic Johnson supporter last time, and I supported him this time as well. But to have this Weld creature a breath away from the presidency? FUCK NO!

  4. Also, Johnson is NO LIBERTARIAN. I watched him, on Stossell’s show last Friday, proclaim that those bakers SHOULD be forced to bake a “gay wedding cake” because, “I don’t like any discrimination.” Choosing what to eat for breakfast must make him catatonic.

    1. He’s not a purist libertarian, but most certainly head and shoulders above both major party candidates. I have my problems with him, but compared to them, he’s stellar. Too bad Weld is an infected hair on the ass of politics.

  7. The realistic goal is that no one gets a majority of electoral votes. Then the House picks from the top three candidates (presumably Clinton, Johnson, and Trump) and the Senate picks from the top two candidates (presumably Kaine and Pence) leaving out Weld.

  8. Nicki: I know very little about guns (although I keep a loaded 38 in my nightstand). I didn’t know “removing a pin” could turn a semi-automatic into a fully automatic rifle. How ridiculously easy. This man is incredible. I remember with great satisfaction when he decided to publicly go after Jessie Helms over his nomination for an ambassadorship. He horribly underestimated Jessie and wore his ass over his shoulders for quite a while. I had hoped that humiliation had driven him from public life forever. However, Johnson resurrected him. If he was Johnson’s #1 choice, how bad are Johnson’s also-rans?

    I lived in New Mexico when he was governor and he did a fine job, I think he would do well as president. Weld not so much.The thing that disturbs me is the BLM is being endorsed by and supported from the Johnson campaign, that I cannot support, So I am voting for my penis, I know what it stands for!

  10. “get momentum into breaking the two-party lock on the political system.”

    The two party system is baked into the constitution. It’s a direct outcome of the President being elected by getting the majority of Electoral votes. With that, there is no stable outcome other than exactly TWO parties. There is only one winner, and that is whoever gets the majority.

    1. The real cause is not the Electoral college which can only influence the presidency, but rather the fact that we do not have proprtional representation in the legislature, where any party will get some seats if only it gets more than a certain thteshold of votes. instead , states require only that you get a plurality. That’s not mandated by the constitution, but it means legislative races will be either mono or bi partisan as well. A third party can’t do anything but be a spoiler except under extraordinary circumstances, and as likely as not it can become the new second party. Normally, people hate one party so much they’ll vote for whatever goofball piece of shit the other oarty outs forward due to such arguments as “a vote for a third party is a vote for rhat awful candidate.” Possible fixes are allowibg oeople the vote for all acceptabe candidates or instant runoff voting. The scare tactic is blunted by those approaches.
