    The Libertarian Party has given up all hopes on their Libertarian spokesman, Gary “Aleppo†Johnson. Libertarian vice-presidential nominee Bill Weld endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton without even mentioning her name.

    In a statement published on the Libertarian campaign website, Weld expressed his gratitude to “Aleppo†Johnson saying, “It is a privilege and an honor to participate in this year’s national election campaign. I am grateful to Governor Gary Johnson for the opportunity to do so.†He also stated that they would both continue to work towards breaking the dominance of the two-party system that rules America’s political scene; however, he noted that the Libertarian Party still had a ways to go and it is time to prevent Trump from winning.

    if true just as bad as kiliary

    This is a tissue of lies.

    Congratulations. You just fell victim to the liberal media reporting. This is from Gary Johnson's FB Page:

    "Responding to numerous web stories and media reports regarding Libertarian Vice-Presidential nominee Bill Weld’s strong denunciation of Donald Trump Tuesday, the Johnson-Weld campaign released the following statement from Communications Director Joe Hunter:
    “Several web sites and media outlets have seized upon Governor Bill Weld’s statement from a news conference Tuesday in Boston to jump to conclusions that are wishful thinking, rather than reality.
    Led by Occupy Democrats, a well-known mouthpiece for the left, the sensationalists and wishful thinkers are re-writing Gov. Weld’s forceful condemnation of Donald Trump into a suggestion that voters should support Hillary Clinton. That is absurd.
    Governor Weld and Governor Johnson are campaigning nonstop, with rallies and appearances scheduled over the next few days across the country from Alaska to Cincinnati, and are fully committed to giving voters the third choice they deserve in this election.
    Any suggestion to the contrary is the product of active imaginations and partisans in both the Republican and Democrat camps who see how many independents, millennials and other disenfranchised voters are looking to the Johnson-Weld ticket as a vote they can cast in good conscience.
    Governor Weld has made clear from day one his fear of a potential Trump presidency, just as he has made clear his policy differences with Hillary Clinton. The only candidate he is urging voters to support for President is Gov. Gary Johnson. Period.
    The wishful thinkers need to take a break and start wishing for something else, because the Johnson-Weld ticket is not giving an inch to Donald Trump OR Hillary Clinton.â€

    Much to the chagrin of both Trump and Hillary supporters, Johnson is still in the race. Sorry. :neener:

    Yep, completely false. Even the author had this to say about it:

    "I don't control headlines. Even if I don't like a headline, I don't get a say. I'm OK with that.
    ...
    I've never said I was a journalist nor would I call myself a journalist. You guys are the ones who keep calling me a journalist. Even if you're calling me a bad journalist, you're still calling me a journalist."

    Classic. I really think that the ability for people to think FOR THEMSELVES just doesn't happen anymore.

    Why would you be surprised by that? We sent our children & grandchildren to schools taught by liberals. When I went to school we were taught how to think. These liberals are teaching the kids how to think like liberals. I was pushed to question everything, then come to my own conclusions. Today, students are taught to accept the liberal mantra and only question conservative values. If a student doesn't accept liberal ideas then he/she is labeled a bigot, racist or homophobic. Conservative values are a casualty of our society falling in line and no longer thinking for themselves. They cut & paste, copy then forward what they believe & think these days. Another symptom of our declining society.

    I believe this is the article from which the spin on both sides began. As you can see, Bill Weld did not say the campaign was coming to an end so that much is false. Spinners and justifiers cannot get around that his preference is Hillary Clinton as the person most suited and most trusted to pick our Supreme Court Justices. He also clearly indicated his expectation that some establishment RINO like Mitt Romney holds the key to progress via the Republican Party. Again, this is THE MAN that Gary Johnson believes is the most suited to run this once great, rapidly dying country.

    Ok, but you want me to vote for Donald "Mexicans are rapists, Megyn Kelly has blood coming out of her wherever, McCain isn't a hero, Look at that face, two Corinthians, look at my african-american, etc, etc, etc," Trump.

    I don't think so.

    A vote for anyone other than Trump is a vote for Hillary. That is where we are right now. Voting for Johnson might make you feel better about yourself, but living in a nation where Hillary is president will undo any good feeling you might derive from your Johnson vote. I just threw out voting on principle for the first time in my 42 years of voting. I will not like Trump becoming president, but that pales in comparison to the hate I will feel when Hillary is sworn in to follow 8 years of Obama's blatant disregard for our constitution. In this case, the unknown we have with Trump is better than all the corruption Hillary will bring to the office. I hate them both, I just hate Hillary so much more.

    For those that struggle with math

    I wish you guys knew how ridiculous you sound when you parrot this propaganda, collectivist, "I have to pick a winner" nonsense.

    If you drink Coke, you're really drinking a Pepsi.

    If I voted on principle I would have to write in a candidate because:
    a) Hillary is a criminal who should be in prison.
    b) Trump is a lying narcissistic liberal.
    c) Johnson is a baffoon.

    This is the first time I despise every candidate in the race. Either my eyes have finally been opened or this is the worst collection of candidates ever. Johnson couldn't name a foreign leader and had never heard of Aleppo, Syria. He really scares me. Hillary will make millions more as president through the Clinton foundation, while she finishes Obama's agenda of changing us into a European socialist country. Trump says the right things, but I don't think he really will do what he's saying if he gets elected, but at least there is a 5% chance he might. I'm voting for the liberal...Trump. I hate myself right now.

    You should. No amount of crying in the shower will wash the feeling you will have off afterwards either.

    You only have 2 things to hold against Johnson. I have a list longer than Santa's naughty list for Trump.

    Difference in kind however. Gary Johnson wants to continue giving free stuff to illegals and even wants to control how someone identifies illegals. He is an open borders control freak. Talk about trying to wash something off. Hahahahahaha

    I concur 100% Going a little further in stating the obvious one can honestly say that the continued Trump bashing is actively campaigning for Hillary Clinton. It goes a long way illuminating to what lengths folks will go to heal their prideful wounds by showing others. I just hate our children and grandchildren will suffer with the consequences for years because of what some are calling a decision based on principles. God Bless this rapidly dying nation!
