    Default Bob Barr or Ron Paul?

    These are the only two candidates I'd consider voting for, unless there's another option I'm not aware of. Any libertarian-leaning people here want to make a case for one or the other?

    And yes, I know he won't win/isn't even running/this thread doesn't matter/my vote doesn't count/life is utterly without meaning. Now, sway me like you mean it.
    No offense.

    I don't think it really matters.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I would have preferred a Paul-Barr or Barr-Paul libertarian-unity ticket, but I will go with Barr for now. I appreciate that Ron Paul is a pretty good libertarian member of Congress, but I don't want to write him in. His endorsement of Chuck Baldwin and the Constitution Party was disappointing. There is also Thomas Knapp of the Boston Tea Party (clever), but they seem even kookier than the LP.

    I just voted a little while ago. Ron Paul wasn't on the ballot. Barr was, but I've never been able to stand that guy. McCain was the lessest of three evils.
