As I explained in my submission to Reason's Show Us Your Vote posting, I am voting for Gary Johnson on Election Day.
1. Which presidential candidate are you voting for and why? Gary Johnson because my vote for president in Massachusetts is irrelevant.
Making Election Day predictions is a tough business but I think it's safe to say that Mitt Romney has no chance of winning the Commonwealth's 11 electoral votes. All polls point to a huge victory for President Obama here.
So if you're not that thrilled about holding your nose and voting for Team Red or Team Blue you should "waste your vote" on somebody you actually like. Here in Massachusetts we have four options for president: Obama, Romney, Johnson, and the Green Party's Jill Stein. If you're to the left of the president you should consider voting for Stein as she is probably more in line with what you actually believe. If you're like me, a libertarian, and you're resigned to the government adoration that is so prevalent in both major parties you should consider voting for Johnson.
