Well, if you are discusted with the system, there is Ron Paul. I just think most Americans from either side of the ideological divide are not ready to embrace the tenets of libertarianism.
People that see the need for a strong tonic to shake the system to its foundations would see Paul as a candidate. Unfortunately, for them his poll numbers do not support anything other than that of a protest candidate.
He is the only presidential candidate that is anti-war, believes in bringing the troops home, thinks we shouldn't interfere in others domestic affairs, highlights the racist nature of the 'war on drugs'... he is consistent thus far in what he says, and doesn't sway from his principles...
and most of all he wants to detangle the Federal Reserve from the mess they have purposely created for the American people...
The American's are seriously some of the most innovative & out of the box entrepeneurs out there, but the state of the economy simply does not represent this - Ron Paul seems to have that covered as he pledges to reduce the spending (not just cut the proposed increases in future spending).
seems like his stance on most important things is America's best hope of moving forward as a nation with humane leadership as opposed to one leaning towards violence, war mongering-tactics & deceptive dictatorship.
I think the best part of what Ron Paul can offer is a "Do Over". He would take us back to the basics, and after his terms, we might actually be in a decent enough state to get back to progression in a steady manner that promotes freedom instead of killing it.
Another reason I would vote for him, is because he is the only candidate who has actually given a reasonable estimate for how much he can shave off the budget in the first year. All the other politicians have either neglected to put their money where their mouth is and actually say how much they intend to cut the budget, and how. Or they've given such unrealistic amounts that there is no way they'd ever be able to reach that goal.
Mabe if i hit my head real bad lost total-vision,,and filled in the wrong circle. maybe if-
fell asleep and the pencil filled in a circle as I fell asleep, maybe I was under the influence of mind altering mushrooms, or someone held a gun to my head,
people go to the poles drunk. IThey hand out ballots in the insane assylum. or simply put-Crack cocaine...
live in NY so it really does not matter who i vote for- because the idemocrat nsane assylum party rules the roost. total insanity since 1984.
Seems to me he would be the only one that wouldn't base a decision by his religious beliefs. Sanatorum - extreme Christian. Romney - extreme Mormon. Newt- not sure but have heard him base decisions from what appeared to be from his faith. Ron- haven't heard any ideas of his based from any religious agendas. Which is the way it should be in my opinion. Religion shouldn't be a part of politics but will be if any of the other three become elected.
