I have in the past, and unfortunately contributed to Bubba Clinton's first narrow victory.

It has to be a legitimate candidate, with a solid, workable platform who has a real chance - and not just a "spoiler" who puts a less-capable "name-brand party" candidate into office.

I'm seriously considering voting for Bob Barr.

I REALLY don't want Obama to be president though, and while I do not agree with McCain on much of anything, I agree with him 100x more than Obama.

If Barr speaks the truth, he is the candidate for me. But a vote for him will be a vote taken away from the Republican party....

a vote for Bob Barr is a vote for a republican candidate. He is a republican in libertarian clothes.

This is why I like him. But at this point it's just splitting republican votes.

then why not just vote for McCain? Why vote for Barr and encourage the libertarians to not have true libertarian candidates? sounds pretty dumb to me.

i don't have a problem with voting 3rd party, but the more i hear about Bob Barr the less i like him. Talk about flip-flopping. That dude's been all over the map on most issues.

I don't agree with most libertarian policies, but I typically agree with Barr.

I don't really give a rats ass what libertarians do honestly.

I honestly don't know who I am going to vote for. After hearing someone compare McCain to Mr. Magoo, I just cant take him seriously anymore.

That's how Clinton was able to win the Presidential election in his first term.
Anyone remember Ross Perot?

Since Ron Paul is out and writing him in won't even get counted I’m going with Chuck Baldwin http://www.baldwin08.com . Obama and MacCain are 2 sides of the same coin.

Holy shit, I agree with Steveo, Libertarians doing away with welfare and handouts would be kickass. Let us each spend our own money.

Good to see in the polls that "hate" isn't dominating everybodys thinking on this issue.
