“The five-shot rifle, that’s a standard military rifle; the problem is if you attach a clip to it so it can fire more shells and if you remove the pin so that it becomes an automatic weapon, and those are independent criminal offenses,” Weld said. “That is when they become, essentially, a weapon of mass destruction. The problem with handguns probably is even worse than the problem of the AR-15.” - Bill Weld, Libertarian candidate for Vice President.
Now I admit, I had been warned about Mr. Weld, I have a few friends from Massachusetts who suffered through his administration of the Commonwealth. He was a Republican back then, allegedly, from what I hear, he was really a RINO (Republican In Name Only). With that rambling statement above (which you can watch here), I experienced an immediate reaction. Like this...
Yup, Bill Weld's rambling nonsense was like one wing coming off, left me spinning out of control it did. Now that was a couple of weeks ago, I went in for surgery, and had a lot of time to think. So think I did, remembering back to how I felt in May, and how I felt in July. There has been a lot of water under the bridge since then.
So I started digging into my inclination to vote Libertarian come November, I did not like what I found. This article and this one as well, plus a few others here and there have brought me up short on what my stance has been up until now.
There is only one thing that I am absolutely sure of, and that is that Shrillary, of the Clinton Crime Family, has to be stopped. If The Donald is the only way to do that, then so be it. While I like to stand on principle, I'm not suicidal. Anything which would let that shrieking, evil harpy get her hands on the controls of government is something I will be no part of.
One other thing about these third party candidacies. Why wait until a Presidential Election to start making noise? Why? Because they're all dumb ass politicians, that's why. If you want to break the stranglehold on politics in the U.S. held by the Democrats and the Republicans, start making your noise just after the election, when we're all feeling sick at heart over the outcome. Build your damn party from the ground up, running a couple of recycled RINOs ain't the way to do it.
Yup, I might be holding my nose when I step into the box in November, but nobody will be able to blame me if the wicked witch of Arkansas gets into the White House. For if that happens, say goodbye to your freedom, say goodbye to your liberty, and say goodbye to your rights under the Constitution for the next fifty years. If not longer.

You're up Mr. Trump.
And I hate waffling!
