Johnson is second only to Trump as a know nothing candidate. Seems as if his biggest ticket appeal item to some millennials, etc., is endorsing legalization of pot. Other than that he does come off looking like the "dummy" he swears he's not. Weld IS the only one on that ticket with substance and could have run a much better campaign with broader appeal.

All Gary Johnson is, is someone with a gimmick who thinks said gimmick can get him into the White House or at least give his party some leeway in future elections.

The problem I have with Libertarians (The ones not Christianized or Republicans) is that they claim they can bring together two polar opposites and come up with a compromise that both sides can agree on. However, I think the liberal/progressive will be doing more compromising in the end while the conservatives get the better bargain.

That does seem to be the case. They -- "Libertarians" -- are sort of in a dilemma right from the gitgo; constantly having to twist and adjust their raison d'etre and definition of "too much government."

Libertarianism is a silly idea (ImHO), not suitable for conversation after the sophomore year of college. After that it's just a veil for "everything is mine to abuse as I wish."

Another Third Partier to talk about, Evan McMullin.
