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 **** 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Believes that the No Child Left Behind Act is **** , and should be repealed.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 **** 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.

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...
#123 - orangepikmin (10/25/2012) [-]
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.

Spread this. Spread this to everywhere, far and wide! Travellers, take this image and paste the walls with it. I think this guy should be in.

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?

that's pretty much how American elections work now.

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....
#70 to #68 - thelastamerican ONLINE (10/25/2012) [-]
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...
#81 to #79 - munchman (10/25/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #83 to #79 - jlpeters (10/25/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #182 to #83 - goblingang (10/25/2012) [-]
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...

Crime rates are dropping in the UK...

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
User avatar #95 to #74 - Faz (10/25/2012) [-]
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.

i think that voting for Obama/Romney is a wasted vote. lets just vote for the same status quo we have had for 30 years....

it doesn't matter because he's not going to win.
User avatar #97 - Faz (10/25/2012) [-]
Gary Johnson was on Phillip Defranco's coverage of the Last presidential debate and i saw a lot of the people in the comments saying "If you guys want to waste your vote voting for a 3rd party candidate then go ahead idiots" This made me extremely fearful of the stupidity of the America voters, you are voting for the man who is supposed to run the one of the most powerful nations in the world and you're all too stupid to actually see that you have other options. Stop voting for the lesser evil and how about actually vote for a good ******* candidate.

Believes War on Drugs should be ended but blames crimes on failure of drug prohibition. Am I missing something?
User avatar #178 to #175 - dischdog (10/25/2012) [-]
I'm no expert, but i think he feels that the war on drugs itself is responsible for such a high crime rate. So if pot wasn't illegal for instance, not only would people not get in trouble for buying/selling pot, but the illegal actions that happen as a result wouldn't happen either.
User avatar #169 - swampert (10/25/2012) [-]
yep when the election happens I'm gonna throw away my vote. That will really show the two party system whats up

Apparently I side 90% with Jill Stein. She looks very... dry.

And I am the sworn enemy of Virgil Goode, Mitt Romney and republicans in general. I don't live in 'murica, so it doesn't really matter, but it was a clever testy thingy. Now americans don't have to decide who to vote for by themselves, that's too exhausting. (Just kidding, ain't hating on the americans.)
User avatar #162 to #133 - yaboybtrue (10/25/2012) [-]
88% support Gary Johnson. Wow. 62% for Mitt and I support Rocky Anderson more than Obama. Ha.
#26 - anon (10/25/2012) [-]
In order to be included in official proceedings, a candidate needs to hold 10% voters in 15 states. Unfortunately, all the debates are over. Facebook and Funnyjunk are the only ways to find out about this guy... I know we'd all like to see him win, but he's too late... And even if he wasn't, Ron Paul would have overshadowed him in press coverage.

In reality, this guy is a plant to take away votes from the challenger. There's always a strong one (IE: Nadar in 2008)
#25 - kantancan (10/25/2012) [-]
True OP, other candidates do exist. However, even after some (or only one - I can't remember) of the founding fathers agreed the idea of a two party system, let alone any system with parties, would be the downfall of our country, most people breeze over that fact. We, the public in general, have been conditioned by the two power houses in politics that there are only Republicans and Democrats - there is nothing else; and if you think so, you're wasting your vote.

Which, if you stop to think about it, while this guy sounds great... Do you really think he'll have enough votes to win any electoral college points; or even the popular votes in a state; let alone a city?
#21 - anon (10/25/2012) [-]
Doesn't matter whose elected, nothing will change, if you want change elect a better congress if you want so desperately for laws to be passed. If Romney gets in his social views won't count toward **** and his economy acts will get through, where as obama will do absolutely nothing and be loved for being a democrat. So who the **** cares about this guy? Anybody can run if they are over 35 and born in America, and lots of people have the same views as this guy. But stupid people think that the president controls everything and that experience and intelligence don't count towards **** . You shouldn't base your vote on somebody's personal views because the laws won't automatically change to his views. So have fun wasting a vote on this guy, it won't change anything, make sure to vote for a good representative (THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO REPRESENT YOU NOT THE PRESIDENT) and have a good day.
