I am voting for Johnson not because he is not the lesser of two evils. I am voting for Johnson because he stands for freedom, while Romney and Obama stand for totalitarianism. Romney favors tariffs, a significant increase in government. If your aim is to reduce government, Romney is the greater, not the lesser, of two evils.
The same was true of Reagan in 1980. He claimed to be for small government, but he did not reduce government, and he opened the door for massive increases in local taxes through his new federalism, whereby he downloaded programs to the states. Carter had stopped inflation by appointing Paul Volcker as Fed chairman (who implemented monetarist policies starting in 1979); he had deregulated the airlines and trucking. Reagan reignited inflation and a 25-year stock bubble through supply-side economics, instituted new regulation in areas like human resource management, and did NOT reduce the federal government. Can you claim that Reagan was the lesser of two evils? With the Republican-conceived $29 trillion bailout of banks, the Republicans' bunkum has grown old. There has been no bigger expansion of the state than the Republican-conceived $29 trillion bailout of 2009. To support Romney is to support socialism.
Choosing between Romney and Obama is choosing between two candidates who support the Federal Reserve Bank’s swap of $29 trillion in real assets for banks’ failed investments. The Fed’s printed money comes out of my pocket--it is stolen.
I oppose both thieving gangsters: Romney and Obama. Neither Romney nor Obama are the lesser of two evils. They both represent significant, direct harm to me and to this country; their supporters participate in their national socialism, just as the good Germans did under Hitler.
