With the presidential election coming upon us soon, I thought this would be a good time to ask you to convince me to vote for your candidate.
Here’s the rules:
No talking about abortion. Abortion is not a talking point, and is highly divisive.
No talking about marriage being between and woman and a man.
Instead, tell me why your candidate is the person for the job and why. It can not bash any other candidate. This has to be purely about your candidate and why I should vote for him/her.
Follow the contribution trail:
There are certain candidates that have accepted donations from the Koch Brothers. If your candidate has accepted money from the Koch Brothers, I will not vote for that candidate. You can still tell me why I should vote for your candidate however.
Which leads me to the next question:
I’m leaning towards voting for Gary Johnson, and my second favorite candidate is Jill Stein. Anyone got the juice on whether they are supported by the Koch Brothers?
If they are, please supply links to your research.
If you’re thinking about voting for a third party candidate, who are you voting for, and why?
I’ll be closing comments on this post on November 7th, so be sure to leave a comment before then.
Lets keep this as respectful as possible, since I really don’t talk about politics much. Insulting, trolling, picking a fight, or baiting another commenter will not be tolerated, and anything I feel is offensive, will be deleted and NOT published.
I am voting for Gary Johnson. Neither Johnson nor Stein are supported by the Koch Brothers. I am voting for Gary because I believe the income tax is unconstitutional and that taxing income discourages people from working(the same way cigarette tax discourages people from smoking). I am also voting for him because I think the wars in the Middle East and the war on drugs are ridiculous wastes of money and the wars in the Middle East are putting us at a greater risk of being attacked.
I think Stein is a great candidate but I do not support her “green” views and I do not agree that higher education should be funded by taxpayers.
Thank you Jared! Its good to know that they aren’t supported by the Koch Brothers.
I’m voting http://www.garyjohnson2012.com. The whole process is made simple & easy with quizzes like: http://www.isidewith.com. I’m voting to end the wars; bring our troops home now; to end the American Liberty limiting NDAA, and Patriot Acts; to reduce military spending to the level in 2003; to abolish the irs & federal reserve; to implement a http://www.fairtax.org; Johnson will submit a balanced budget in 2013; he will cut federal spending by forty-three percent; … There are too many to list here; in short, i’m voting Johnson & Gray because they are fiscally conservative and socially accepting.
Thanks for commenting, and thank you for posting the different links. When I did isidewith.com I came back with 97% (something like that!) for Gary Johnson. I thought the poll was awesome and a few of my friends that tried it out were surprised with who they really sided with. 😉
I think fairtax.org is also another great site, so that others can understand what fair tax (consumption tax) is all about.
