The states where a single vote is
most likely to matter are New Mexico, Virginia, New Hampshire, and Colorado, where your vote has an approximate 1 in 10 million chance of determining the national election outcome. On average, a voter in America has a 1 in 60 million chance of being decisive in the presidential election.
My thoughts echo Kristen – I live in New York, so it’s always been easy to vote for the Libertarian candidate. The fact that they chose a terrible candidate this year is just bad luck, but I still plan to vote for Barr. Bad as he is from a libertarian perspective, he’s still better than the main 2 choices we face.
And I, too, want the LP to have a decent showing.
I don’t believe for a nanosecond that Bob Barr is a libertarian.
I voted early, primarily to vote against Sheila Jackson Lee (Congresswoman, 18th District of Texas). For President I wrote in John Galt. Can’t bring myself to vote for Bob Barr after he supported and helped pass the Lautenberg Amendment. Anyone who thinks it’s ok to permanently revoke a citizen’s Constitutionally-protected fundamental human rights over the accusation of a misdemeanor is not qualified for the job.

It is heartening to see “Not Voting” edging out at least one of the primary vultures.
Up until today I was planning on not voting for any of the presidential candidates. I don’t like or trust Barr at all (and not a big fan of the wacky LP), but I’m wondering if I can help the libertarian cause at all by adding a tiny bit to his percentage total.
