Romney vs Obama. I know, i know. Doesn't really get you excited, huh?
Could it be because Obama has punted on closing down Guantanamo Bay?
Continued the Drug war, especially on Medical Marijuana distributors in states where they are certified and legal?
Started yet another war without congressional approval and by overstepping the constitutional limitations of the presidency?
Ramped up non-violent illegal immigrant deportations?
Signed the NDAA giving himself and future presidents the ability to arrest anyone at anytime in any country (even the US) by simply declaring them a terrorist or enemy combatant?
Supported an extension of the Patriot Act?
Declared the President has the ability to assassinate American Citizens without trial?
And Romney...well, I don't think I need to say much about that.
But Fear not!
There is an alternative to the two party system. How about a candidate who Supports gay marriage? And I'm not talking about having an "evolving" opinion of it depending which way the polls blow, but fully in support of marriage equality.
He is also advocating decriminalization of marijuana due to the failure of the drug war and the cost in money and lives (especially for the African American community)
He is pro-choice.
He served at governor in a state that was 2-1 Democrat and left as the most popular governor in memory.
He strongly opposes building a border fence but instead wants to reform immigration to allow those who came here for a better life to stay and become legal while also vastly increasing the number of immigrants we allow from Mexico and South/Central America each year.
He was a vocal opponent of the Iraq War and military action in Iran. He is a vocal opponent of all nation-building because we are in no position to instill our values on other countries and cultures.
This person is not imaginary and (certainly) not a Republican. It is none other than Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson. Remember, you always have a choice in who you vote for. It is just that in 2012, you have a REAL choice.
Take a gander at the man here
"I have not been afraid to speak out on controversial issues even when they may have hurt my chances at higher office. I have openly supported marriage equality, been a vocal opponent both of our failed war on drugs and our failed attempts at nation-building."
