    First Guy: I voted for Gary Johnson. We should never have to settle for the lesser of two evils.

    Second Guy: You’re married, right?

      The first guy voted for Obama and doesn’t even realize it. I have friends like that. I heard a woman on the radio last week. Sge called Rush Limbaugh to say she had voted for Obama and was voting for Romney this time. He asked her why she voted for Obama and she said McCain wasn’t CONSERVATIVE enough.

      Limbaugh was intrigued with this reasoning and she told him she figured the left wanted Obama and they should see what it was really like. She figured they had had enough by now and she could vote for Romney.

      I think the guy in my conversation voted in NY, so it didn’t cost Romney anything, but I take your point. There’s quite a bit of “that’ll teach ‘em” thinking among libertarians. The problem is that the kinds of people who are capable of learning from experience are probably not voting for Democrats in any case.

      I used to vote third party as an expression of “a plague on both your houses” to the Pubs and Demos. After a number of years, I decided that the Demos did more harm to our country than the Pubs did. I then viewed voting third party as being complicit in electing Demos.

      …she figured the left wanted Obama and they should see what it was really like.

      Quite obviously, there are some people for whom too much is never enough.

      The problem is that the kinds of people who are capable of learning from experience are probably not voting for Democrats in any case.

      As a general rule of life, I believe that in most situations it is pointless to “teach them a lesson”, because anyone capable of absorbing the lesson has already learned it.
