Can't vote for Hillary. Trump is still unpalatable. I've been looking at Gary Johnson. I like a lot of what I've seen.
Does anyone know much about him? Is he a viable alternative?
Anyone who hasn't survived the primaries should just go away . They are simply spoilers who'll never accumulated enough votes to do anything but spoil another's chance of winning .
I get what your are saying but you have to remember those were the primaries fort the two major parties. This guy is a libertarian. During any other election cycle I'd agree with you but the two running have incredibly negative ratings for trust and likeability. We are all (for the most part) simply taking the tiny bit of good with a truckload of baggage.
The guy describes himself as a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. He has realistic ideas on immigration, he doesn't appear to want to micro manage individual choice and he isn't hawkish on foreign policy. I'd like to hear more from him. I think he could appeal to both sides of the fence.
Yet Trump is not only an outsider , but he is suffering the lack of media support and castration by the actual people who made him sign an agreement to "play by the rules " THE GOP , whom with the DNC would and should be suffering greatly for their own manifest destiny - like control of our entire budget process , for their apathy of leadership and dictator like control of government , all the WHILE the American voter seems totally distracted by whatever source of evening entertainment there is going on at the moment !
What's wrong in the American Congress , Senate , Supreme Courts and in our modern day media , IS ACTUALLY our own fault ! WE BUY IT ALL, paper bag and all !
Those still holding out for Hillary are just as blind , naive and connected to the "system " as to render them useless towards changing ANYTHING ! The "Gary Johnsons "of the political world cannot break through a rigged media and primary system for one , and the apathetic voting public for another .
Johnson is the new Ralph Nader. However, he is not the only "alternative" candidate for president. Even with just 6% of the biased "opinion poll", Jill Stein is clearly gaining ground. Like it or not, for the first time ever (?) America is looking at a four way race. Personally, I feel Johnson and Stein have a greater chance than the media-supported "Trillary". Remember, 36% of registered voters are fully independent of both major parties and a large 16% pulls from both aisles toward the independent center. Combined, that's over half the voting population. Given the disgust and obvious dislike/distrust of team "Trillary" both Johnson and Stein have a shot.

Both Romney and Obama want more war. Looks like we're staying in Afghanistan for many more years to come. And Iraq? Heck, "combat" troops have been renamed "trainers." All for a good Corporate buck....
