See what I did there?
If I voted for Johnson, yes.

John Huntsman, though, would actually be considered the sanest candidate in the Republican primary. He doesn't reject science and thinks you shouldn't either. Of course, that means he'll never get the nomination. Being an intellectual in tune with reality doesn't curry favor with the GOP sheep.
Based on your previous postings on this topic, I think you actually understand my meaning. Gary Johnson may be a great candidate. In fact, I agree with him on most issues. But he's got no shot (as in less than Ron Paul) at beating Obama. Jazz runs around acting like this is a free-for-all, as if we line up a ton of people on the stage (with Obama) and just pick the one that represents us best. But that is not the case, and I'm sure you know it. Someone has to not only be a good candidate, but be someone that can beat Obama.
Do I think Romney is perfect? Of course not. Would I like someone more conservative on fiscal issues and more liberal on social issues? Yes. But do I think he'd do a far superior job compared to Obama and do I think he can actually win? Absolutely. That's really all it's about for me...I truly do believe Obama has been an absolute nightmare as a President. Almost
anyone who is not insane or utterly radical would be better. I put on that list many people with whom I disagree and even can't stand. For example, you all know my feelings on the Clintons. I'd take either one of them over Obama every day of the week and twice on Sunday. This President has got to go for the sake of saving this nation.
