Liberals and progs should cut the crap: The case for Hillary

You would think that enabling the 2000 election of George W. Bush would be a cautionary tale for third party advocates. Not so. Watching last night's 60 Minutes interview with Gary Johnson and Bill Weld showed that they are contemptible, reckless egomaniacs. 

Paul Krugman on what's at stake this year:

Does it make sense to vote for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president? Sure, as long as you believe two things. First, you have to believe that it makes no difference at all whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump moves into the White House — because one of them will. Second, you have to believe that America will be better off in the long run if we eliminate environmental regulation, abolish the income tax, do away with public schools, and dismantle Social Security and Medicare — which is what the Libertarian platform calls for.

All hardcore political narcissists will be voting for the Libertarian candidate due to their disdain for Hillary Clinton's lack of purity. Liberty! Gee, what an original insight! Why hasn't anyone thought of that before?

Kevin Drum at Mother Jones lists 84 reasons why liberals and progressives should cut the crap and support Hillary Clinton (The progressive case for Hillary Clinton is pretty overwhelming).

Libertarianism? What the country needs is more government, not less. See The Case for More Government and Higher Taxes and Once Skeptical of Executive Power, Obama Has Come to Embrace It.
