Has anyone looked at this guy?

What do you think of him? Why or why not should he be president?
What does he and doesnt he support, and where is a valid source supporting your claim?

Just looking for a decent discussion. :thumbsup:

Official Libertarian Party website.

Bob Barr's website

I personally will probably be voting for Bob Barr. I live in New York, where better than 65% of the population that vote are completely ill-informed. Case in point, the re-election of Alan Havesi as State Comptroller after he used state resources and money for his own personal use to the tune of $206,000. This was on the news, and in the papers, and the idiot majority in this state still voted in someone who basically stole from the state. The state comptroller job is basically that of a head accountant, an in NY he was for both the state, and city of NY. New York will vote in Obama, no doubt in my mind. I am not a fan of some of McCains policies, but if he had a snowball's chance in hell of winning the state, I might've voted for him. Since he does not, I will probably vote for Barr, because every vote for the Libertarian ticket is another vote that legitimizes that party. I have gotten to the point where I don't vote Republican, or Democrat, but rather vote against Socialism and an increase in Gov't, and the Libertarian ticket seems to be the only one that I can agree on in that regard.

A year or so ago, I was at my fathers house, and he had the radio on. I am not a big Rush Limbaugh fan, though he can be entertaining at times. Anyway, he said something that I thought very unlike him to say, and it stuck with me. He said something along the lines of "Both parties (republican and democrat) are taking this country to hell. It's just a matter if you want to take a jet airplane (democrats), or if you want to take the train (republicans)."

I personally don't agree with every issue the Libertarian party stands for. But I believe that people who agree with every issue any particular party stands for do not have the ability to think for themselves. Right now, I look at the Libertarian party as "an ounce of prevention", and am fearful of what the two main parties "pound of cure" will be.

Bob Barr is precisely why the Republican Party is in trouble today. He was one of the GOP congresmen that helped double the size of government and abandoned every core principle the party had. And now he washes his hands of his mess and wants us to forgive him for his past sins and forget about the past? No thanks. :thumbsdown:
