Vote None Of The Above
Liberty Unbound finishes up their 2016 election recommendations with Andrew Ferguson making a case for not voting. I generally get a bit hot under the collar when libertarians suggest other libertarians don't vote, especially when there are libertarian candidates or issues to vote for, but his argument makes a fun read with some of the more polite put- downs of candidates I've read this time around. On Trump, for example:
"As for that buffoon: Donald Trump is a lifelong conman with a history of false dealing and shoddy investments. When individuals have stood in the way of his gaudy real estate projects, he has always turned to the power of the state to get his way. He is the callow oaf-king of a shabby empire, a man who blusters constantly about others’ perceived weaknesses but then bitches to anyone in earshot whenever someone gets the best of him — something which happens alarmingly often for someone with designs on becoming Commander-in-Chief. Though it was fun to watch him rip into the puffy nobodies on the Republican primary stage, he embarrassed himself rising to Clinton’s bait every time out: one can only imagine how an actually capable world leader — Angela Merkel, for sure, but also Xi Jinping, or Putin himself, for that matter — would twist President Trump around their fingers."
More on your choices at Liberty Unbound. I already voted for Gary Johnson and urge everyone to do the same. And don't forget to vote Ken Anton for state assembly. As his campaign signs say: Protect Freedom/ Spend Wisely- something we should probably all agree on.
