Endorses a Carbon tax?

"I do think that climate change is occurring, that it is man-caused. One of the proposals that I think is a very libertarian proposal, and I’m just open to this, is taxing carbon emission that may have the result of being self-regulating."

The anti-2nd amendment comments among other things this nut says disqualifies him IMO.

I am genuinely interested. Could you elaborate on this a little? From what I have read he is the most gun friendly candidate, stating several times he does not think gun laws work, and he prefers more guns and chl to make criminals think twice before attacking someone...

I still think we are hosed this November regardless. Just how bad will be the question.

Hillary - Money hungry power hungry narcissistic lying prostitute (selling anything not nailed down for her own gain, not the call girl type) RAcist Senator Bird was her mentor yet she calls Trump Racist. Anyone but her.

Trump - Money hungry power hungry narcissistic unstable bully (by his own admission he is not bound by any ideals, he lives in the moment regardless of previous statements or promises by him) I don't think he is racist, I think he thinks every living thing is beneath him regardless of race or nationality. A real crapshoot, no idea what he will actually do if he wins.

Gary - personality of a stump. not fighting for the office. No real chance to win.

If Trump wins expect riots like we have never seen. Some people are bad losers.

Nailed it!

I truly feel like choosing a "presidential" candidate this November is like choosing which STD you want to live with.

I would nvr vote for Hillary. I'm not excited about Trump but, I will nvr be extorted by threats of any kind no riot threat or actual riot will deter me from exercising my rights. In fact it strengthens my resolve to defy this attempted extortion tactic.

In fact after discussing the probable riots if Trump wins my circle of friends are now all 100 percent going to vote and vote for Trump. So I guess this tactic has backfired in a small way already because most of them weren't even gonna vote .now they will just for spite to prove they will not be extorted.

Both Johnson's comments on 2nd Amendment issues and carbon tax have me concerned, at this point I am only voting down ticket. But I do keep reading and praying.

Voting for everybody but the ones at the "top of the ticket", i.e. the Presidential candidate. AKA "skipping the box." Vpting for Congressman, Senator, State, City, and County offices only.

I did that last time around and they didn't get the message.

This time around, I'm voting for the third name on ballot, unless its an actual Nazi or Communist (or Lyndon LaRouche).

I see no functional, moral, or political difference between the two crap sandwiches the major parties have offered us, and I don't think there will be much difference in the Supreme Court Justices.

The only way for us to win this game is not to play it by their rules.

I'm OK with Hillary although she is more hawkish than I prefer. A lot of the criticisms leveled at her don't make much sense to me.

Especially the ones made by FBI Director Comey about being reckless, incompetent, and a liar.

Those made sense. She is certainly far from perfect.
