Who do you think should be should be the next president?


I'd like Gary Johnson to win.


Who do you think will win the next presidential election?


It's too early to say.  Possibly Ron Paul, which wouldn't be ideal, but would be better than any of the other guys except for Gary Johnson.


But how do atheists and anyone else here feel?


Obama is taking the nation in a bad direction.  But then so would Santorum, Romney, or Gingrich.


Ron Paul isn't perfect, but I think he is mostly headed in the right direction.  Gary Johnson is at least 90% headed in the right direction.


 


eudaimonia,


Mark

Ron Paul's foreign policy is alright. His naive economic policies would make the predictions in the movie "Metropolis" come true. The same for Johnson.

The only Frank Lovell I've heard of is a Trotskyist who died in 1998.

Wrong one. Frank is the epitome of a reasonable atheist conservative, and a scientist by occupation.

Most libertarians I run into don't seem to care much about the environment. They all seem to think global warming is a hoax, along with their republican cousins. That's the main reason I would never vote for them. Although, the democrats haven't done much about climate change either.

They needn't bother. It's already too late.

It's probably already too late to stop certain horrible consequences, but we could still do something to quell really horrible consequences.

I am thinking of moving to Svalbard. Longyearbyen looks rather pretty in summer.

Not really. He's a Libertarian and would bring about the ruin if this country a bit sooner than the Republicans would.
