happy note:  I've got a job, prn, only 2 days a week, but it's foot in the door with a good comapny and should a full time or part time job come open, I've got a better chance of getting it,.

 
Congrats.

I think Gary has a chance if he can get into the debates, if he can get that 15%. If people vote based on what they believe in and not by party, he surely will win. We shall see right? ;)

 
I feel as though I've shirked my duties by not seeing this till now.  Do I think he can do it?  Technically, yes.  It's a miniscule chance, but it's there.  Do I think it probable? No.

I suspect that a lot of the statistical evidence for a mostly Republican draw stems from Democrats not having looked elsewhere.  The Republicans, it seemed, were actively looking for an alternate to Romney.  This made them more likely to find Johnson.  Democrats knew who their person would be, so they didn't go looking.  If they let him into the debates I suspect the imbalance will even out.
There is no inherent meaning to life.  Stop looking and give your life meaning.

As a recovering Republican I'm always looking for an alternative to their boy.  They haven't put up a decent candidate since... well... since...
I'd LOVE to see Johnson get in there and best Romney in a debate.
Oh, is it time again to say "Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets?"?

Okay. Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets.
