If you dare to vote for Romney, you might as well go kill yourself.
All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work. â€” Calvin Coolidge

There are a few rules about matching funds for primary and general elections, but the big prize is the $91 million grant to â€śeach major party nomineeâ€ť as well as another $18 million for their party conventions. Itâ€™s all funded by taxpayers who voluntarily check a checkbox to specifically divert $3 of their tax bill (note: not paying $3 more) into this election funding pot.
Let me put it plainly, in case you missed it: If Gary Johnson gets 5% of the vote in 2012, the Libertarian Party has access to millions of government dollars in 2016.
This means that a vote for Gary Johnson is not a wasted vote as many claim. In fact, depending on your state, your single vote may do more to close the gap between Johnson and 5% than it will to close the gap between the â€śtwo evils.â€ť This would actually make a vote for Johnson the least wasted vote possible.
You can add your little vote to a major candidate without really changing the tens of thousands of votes he will probably lose or win by in a state that may not even have enough electoral votes to make a difference in the final outcome. Or you can add yourself to the growing percentage of voters who want something real, something honest, something different,
Btw, that $3 checkbox on your taxes is basically how earmarks are done. The money is already ready to be spent, but if you personally "earmark" that $3, it gets spent on that checkbox item, and Congress and the Prez can't spend it on something else. Thus the argument from some people that everything in budgets should be earmarked.
