Here we go again.  Millions of Americans will soon vote for either the Republican or Democratic presidential candidate not because they deeply believe that he is absolutely the best possible president the country needs and can have.  No, they will know that they are compromising and choosing the lesser of two evils, mainly because most people know that both major parties and their candidates stink.  The lesser evil is still a loser.

“Because we don’t have true democracy in this country. We lose lives going overseas, spreading our goodness and great democracy and we orchestrate elections. We don’t like them, we void them. We ignore them — I’m saying — if we don’t get the people we support and the people the CIA supports.

Responding to questions from Voters Evolt, Texas Congressman Paul said he would not “discourage” any votes cast for him. However, fearing it would “glorify the majority,” Paul did not favor a National Policy Referendum.
