The Candidate Nobody Knows About
Gary Johnson
A lot of people will bitch and moan all day about how Obama and Romney such. But do they do shit about it
no? There are other candidates that nobody pays any attention to becuase they don' t drop a couple millions on
advertisements.
This Guy:
Things "government doesn' t belong in the bedroom." Equality for all sexualities.
opposes "rules regulating content, Internet speeds, and pricing for services,".
opposes gun control initiatives.
Believes that the War on Drugs has not been successful, and should be ended.
ls in favor of lowering the drinking age to IE.
opposes the death penalty completely.
Believes that laws regarding abortion should "be decided by the individual states."
Blames a great amount of crime in the United States on the failure of drug prohibition.
Believes that the No Child Left Behind Act is shit, and should be repealed.
opposes special sin taxes on cigarettes.
Believes the "government should protect the value of individuals and their civil liberties"
and "should not intervene in the private lives of individual citizens unnecessarily.
I may not agrre with everything he stands for, but I do know that he is a hell of a lot more capable than either
of the shit heads people seem to think they HAVE to choose from. So consider this guy if you plan on voting this
year. That is all.

Except none of that stuff actually matters, since the president himself can't do ****. The congress has all the power, and from what i know (which is kinda limited since I'm not from the US) It kinda changes whether the republicans or the democrats have the most seats, and since they refuse to work together, they always block the plans of the other guys so nothing gets done and everyone blames the other one. So basically they get paid to bitchslap each other and do nothing, and the whole country tends to blame the president, aka the scapegoat for it.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Politics just suck wherever you go.

MFW politics anywhere...

Yeah, you're pretty much right. The President DOES have limited power. But the thing is however small that power is, he still has it. He has some say in what happens to Americans, and I would rather pick an intelligent being to hold that power. (awesome gif btw).

I find this whole elections thing in the US extremely... strange. Almost as if someone was tampering with the whole thing. It seemed like Ron Paul had a real chance of winning the GOP pre-election (I'm not exactly sure how those are called) and then someone decided some states votes don't count (Saw that on youtube, the busses with the officials of two states were held for some reason and were too late so they couldn't vote or something like that), and suddenly everyone just focused on how supremely Mitt Romney won, as if it was never any contest. It just felt rigged, somehow.

And now there are 2 candidates with 2 completely different view points. There is never some candidate up for the final election that is... i don't know, just some normal dude with normal world views, it's always an extreme, be it democrat or republican.

I'm really eager to see how this election turns out and, more importantly, what happens afterwards. America is a pretty big player on this planet, so whoever is in charge there can make major decisions that could potentially affect the whole world.

It is being tampered with.... lets face it we have no say in the elections any more votes don't matter, and the winner has already been decided and it will be Obama....

Even in the Presidential election, some states votes don't really matter at all. The voting system hasn't changed since the Revolution, which is pretty damned stupid if you ask me. I'm pretty sure that it goes by population, size, spots in congress, or something like that. Due to this, some states don't get much of a part in who gets put in office. I don't really understand why every politician has to punch whoever opposes them. The presidential debates are so much of a disgrace, i didn't even bother to watch them. They aren't debates, they're two idiots trying to make the other look worse. Politics will always be controlled by those with money and influence, not by those who want to help and have the know-how to do so. Heck, in my own state, the two people running for Senator are running ads constantly...about what the other WON'T do, not what they themselves will do.

tl;dr Politics you crazy.

so basically he could know nothing about the economy or how to actually run a country, but as long as he is on the majorities side about trivial edicts it's all good right?

He wants to end the war on drugs, but at the same time blames the crime rate on the failure of drug prohibition?
And he wants no gun control, but opposes the death penalty?

Right....

I'll clear that up for you if you like.   
Opposes the war on drugs: Because regulating a plant is all but impossible.   
Believes that the crime rate is high because of the war on drugs: Drugs would be worth almost nothing if they were legal. Why fight over them and who gets to sell them if they grow like ditch weeds?   
Wants no gun control: Because an armed society is a polite society.   
Opposes the death penalty: Only one state still uses firing squad as an execution method. I don't think that there's really a lot linking gun control to the death penalty.

"Wants no gun control: Because an armed society is a polite society."
Right... Because the USA, where guns are legal, totally has a lower crime rate than EU countries where guns are illegal...

Countries like Switzerland and Finland have very lax gun control laws and very low crime rates. Hell, in Switzerland, after you join the army you can buy your rifle and keep it.

OK, lets take a example from the UK a back in the day they were aloud guns just like we are now but since they took all guns away the crime rate is rising and more shootings are happening. the reason is that when you take the guns away from people who use them the proper way the only people that have them are the people that have them illegally and are using them for illegal things. if everyone had a gun no one would be ****** with,because no one wants to be shot.

There's alot more to do with it than that, like the rise in hip hop culture spread from the USA through music and film, aswell as a change in the mindset of the youth...

allowing everyone to have guns means that almost any crime can be instantly punished by death is the victim is pissed off enough, or if the criminal is stupid enough. so I guess this is kinda contradictory. And by the way, just because this guy has a couple of very popular viewpoints does not mean he is as capable as obama or romney, point in case is that nobody has every heard of this guy

God you're stupid, the reason nobody has heard of this guy is because the media always focus on Obama and Romney and NO ONE ELSE. Because America has a two party system in which you are always voting for the shiniest of two turds you will always be doomed to having **** presidents.

But does he have adequate political experience and knowledge about how to run a country, not to mention how to get all this stuff through?

Having views I'm compatible with isn't enough to get me to vote for you.

Obama had experience. Not necessarily as much as his competitor, but still he had experience.
OP is expecting us to think "yeah, I really should vote for this guy" without telling us anything about the guy except for his views.
He might as well just be one of my friends for all I know.
Point is: If you want to advertise a person as being a suitable presidential candidate, maybe mention something about what would make him a good leader, rather than just listing his views and expecting us to suddenly decide that he's awesome. There are millions of people with those exact views, and very few of them are suited to be presidents.

He was governor of New Mexico. I'd say that's a good qualification.

Well sure, but the content that's trying to sell us on the guy isn't mentioning that at all.
What I'm saying is that that's the kind of stuff you oughta mention if you want to advertise the candidate.

You say it like one man's opinions are enough to qualify him to be president. I could say all those things and agree with those opinions but that doesn't mean you should vote for me as president...

While I agree on the fact that they don't recieve the attention that they deserve, the presidential race as far as the media is concerned is way overdone. What the media SHOULD focus on are the Congressional elections, which are far more pertinent than the president's.

Well, in fact, the American election is of the same importance as the EU comitee. Seriously, it will have terrible consequences on the whole world if Mr. Romney wins. Oh, and allow the ********* to commence.
