But to the OP - he’s a die-hard Libertarian. He’s a strong supporter of gay rights, pro-life (after the first trimester), wants to end the war on drugs, the war in Afghanistan, don’t bother with crazy-ass nations, get out of NATO and the UN (both pretty good ideas) and pretty much cut off all foreign aid.
That all makes too much sense for the general population to elect him, he needs a few flaws so the average american can relate to him better.[/quote]
On this line of reason (though, it appears it was said for the satirical effect)
So then what do you guys vote for? What YOU feel is best for the country (makes sense to you) or trust a particular PERSON to know what is best?[/quote]
It would be a little biased if I trusted my own opinion over a particular person. If I am capable of choosing whats best for the country then so is Mr Johnson, and if hes not then why would I be any better at it? This is why I like some of the libertarian ideas especially anything that pushes decisions down to the state level. If 1 person or many people are going to make a decision, the fewer amount of people it affects the better.
