It's sure not hard to tell who the republicans are in this thread.
Nah. The choices were too limited. I'm a Gary Johnson supporter, I personally hate Trump.
Classical Liberal then?
I can see the lack of choices though
On the left Clinton is a dangerous criminal, Sanders is cartoon mental case, on the right there is Trump who is, er..... very Trump. The GOP hasn't had anyone who could be described as either a proper republican or a conservative for years as they conserve nothing but their own interests. Personally I'd see Trump in as he cuts through the bollocks that comes out of the msm and the whingy sjw crowd
What did you think of Austin Petersen?
You pretty much summed it up. Trump is probably the greatest troll of our generation, and I've read his historical positions in his own words over the years. Respecting the fact that Ronald Reagan was a Democrat most of his political career, we have a chain of events by which scholars have charted his 180 on many political views to becoming the uber Republican he's lauded as. Trump, we have no such thing so cutting through the BS of telling crowds what they want to hear from speech to speech, therefore I fall back on what he's written in the past which tells me that he's virtually a Hillary clone with a better wardrobe, more interesting hair, and a human personality. Or...would that be Mitt Romney? I get confused. Anyway.
I confess to knowing very little about Austin Petersen. I like Gary because, like Trump he has real world business experience. I get pissed when I hear repubican (no, that's not a misspelling on my part) trolls talk about there not being anyone else on the ticket with private sector experience. Aside from that, I've met him personally and I voted for him last time when Ron Paul was scuttled. My only misgiving is him buying into the gay marriage fiasco, I think universal civil unions would be a much better solution. I still enjoy trolling repubicans by pretending to be a gay wiccan pissed off that I have to get married instead of handfasted (an upside to the controversy, easy trollbait)
