Some have already cast our votes through early voting, but most Americans are getting ready to go to the polls.

Your vote is the most important, critical and precious gift you can give anyone running for office. Your vote is your voice, your conscience speaking, and always should reflect your personal principles.

It saddens me greatly every time the old wasted-vote myth is used against candidates with actual solutions outside the major two parties.

Your vote doesn’t belong to anyone else but you, it cannot be taken by any politician unless you cast it for them, and it cannot be wasted unless you choose to vote for a candidate to appease the herd. The theory behind this is that we must vote for the lesser of two evils to ensure a monster opponent doesn’t get it.

I am of the opinion that to vote for the lesser of two evils is still a ballot cast for evil itself, and I am sure my fellow Americans across the nation can smell the sulfur as our economy and our personal liberties go up in flames.

I will proudly cast my vote for former two-term governor of New Mexico and Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson. In my firm opinion, Johnson gets it. His steadfast principles reflect what most Americans believe on what needs to be done going forward to face the troubling times, and how to bring about national renewal.

    I have opened my eyes since 2000, this is also when I became a Libertarian because the views of the Republican party started to look twisted and became closer to what the Democrats think or lack of. So please don't come to me and say stupid things if you can not come up with a good reason why Obama or Romney should be voted for, and to just get someone else other than Obama isn't a good enough reason. I have be up to date with all the facts on both these candidates alot longer than most, if you want to vote mindlessly without question then just do it and stop trying change other people's minds if they decide for someone different. If you want to change their minds, come up with real facts and real topics that mean something other than the flawed health care bill that most people don't want or need. I welcome all to bring something to the table that gives me a reason why to vote for any of these corrupt candidates, as of right now I am standing my ground and voting for who I believe in that will and can make a real change (Gary Johnson).
