2016 Presidential Candidates

comments and discussions at metacomment.io

The Libertarian Party recognizes 2016 Presidential candidates who have campaign websites, are dues-paying members of the LP, have met all U.S. Constitutional requirements to serve in office as president, and are not running for the nomination of any other political party. They have also filed with the FEC, with the exception of Darryl Perry, who has chosen not to file, as a protest against the FEC, claiming that it lacks constitutional authority.

in that order I think

To all my #NeverTrump friends: I get it + respect you. I'm voting for him over HRC. Trump needs to win you over, if he can. It's on him.

Don't bet the cost of a cup of Starbucks on it.

2016-05-04 01:12:44

Glad you respect my decision to never cast a ballot for . I will not enable this anti-conservative con man.

2016-05-04 01:14:36

. The fact that I'd vote for despite him being an anti-conservative con man is a testament to HRC's evil.

Here is a good video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpiTKmowohI&list=PLaAhtupyDNh-UsClb2JOlu-twp9x-vP5D&index=5 …

Take a look at Johnson.

2016-05-04 12:35:07

- Will read up on him.

border policy is already in effect. If any border were to be a threat to sovereignty, surely that would be it. From the other side...

2016-05-06 17:11:39

Allowing any person in the world deicide if they get to be a US citizen means "sovereignty" is entirely meaningless.

2016-05-06 17:12:13

No one suggested that. Literally no one, not even the most open-border free-movement anarchists.

2016-05-06 17:13:13

When I visit other countries I don't gain citizenship.

2016-05-06 17:14:18

The concept of "open borders" is not about visiting. Nor is it about worker visas.

2016-05-06 17:18:10

It is about visiting and conducting business to people in the LP. No candidate recommends more. Most aren't open-border by any def..

2016-05-06 17:31:12

The LP has many factions.

2016-05-06 17:32:25

On this we agree.

2016-05-06 17:33:35

That said, there are a mere 17 pres. candidates. There were only 2 senate candidates in my state. Not too many factions I care about.

2016-05-06 17:36:23

25 candidates, if you include the folks the press gave no chance to. It was a zoo.

2016-05-06 17:39:57

Sorry. Thought you meant the (R) side.

2016-05-23 20:25:03

I must admit I love all the fascinating personalities running for this one.

2016-05-23 20:35:52

Agreed, like nothing before, and PC talk is crumbling.

2016-05-24 10:56:59

None of the above. #WriteInCruz

2016-05-24 11:42:11

Truthfully... still support Cruz above all else. #NeverTrump #WriteInCruz

2016-05-24 12:52:56

Glad to have you all weighing in. I guess if your desire is to vote your conscience, that will do it.

2016-05-24 12:53:26

I didn't realize there were still Cruz fans out there. Thanks for the comment.

2016-05-24 12:54:39

So no to voting? I can't vote, since I am not a US citizen, but I respect the decision to abstain.

2016-05-24 12:57:17

not there yet. Stronger 3rd party my preference if nothing changes possible write in MR most likely. Libtarian views arent mine

2016-05-24 12:59:21

LP should put up a mainstream Reformocon & have AP as VP.

2016-05-24 13:19:12

What is a reformocon?

2016-05-24 13:49:41

Ryan/Rubio/Sasse wing of GOP who want to create an inclusive free market pro constitution/Liberty message

2016-05-24 13:56:12

I guess I just don't see it, since the feds have strayed so far from anything that resembles constitutionalism.

2016-05-24 14:17:36

you've taken the international criticism of US intelligence too much to heart. NSA is =|= PRC

2016-05-25 20:11:52

Yes, there are still Cruz fans....many of them

2016-05-25 23:50:10

Gotcha. I met him years ago, and had a very bad experience, but he is staunchly conservative.

2016-05-26 10:40:17

Sorry to hear that. I've never met him, but he's the 1st real conservative we've had in a very long time

2016-05-26 14:47:14

I think Ron and Rand Paul are both true conservatives, even if less hawkish.
