I'm not too big on bumper stickers. With one exception --- the anti-SAF on my old Outback, of course.
However, I do find this one amusing.
As a student of propaganda, misdirection and disinformation, maybe I just enjoy taking a curve ball approach to humanity... and the future.
That's why I like my tongue-in-cheek "lesser of 3 evils" slogan. Not only does it have that classic tinge of self-deprecation, it also has this underlying sarcasm which I think would appeal to wiser voters who feel disenfranchised. But most important, it's a great marketing teaser. Because it raises the most obvious question --- who the hell is this guy? And why would he refer to himself as "minimally evil?" Then, you do a little research. Then, the word of mouth gets going. It's merely a ploy. That's how it begins.
Gary Johnson??? He's a routine competitor in those triathlon, iron man competitions. He founded a prominent construction company. Has written several books about politics and government. The guy fucking climbed Mount Everest, K-2 and all these other mountains. Sounds a little more health conscious than Trump and a little more physically fit than Hillary. This could be a valuable inroad --- portraying Hillary as an old bitty with a fat ass and Donald as your agitated, pissed off ginger uncle.
With Hillary and Trump repeatedly super-punching each other in the breasts and balls, it gives Johnson a legitimate opportunity to make some waves. Although I seriously doubt his ability to contend, I honestly do believe he can have an impact. Kingmaker... not likely. But he could play a significant role in determining the outcome. Seriously, what's the difference? Just ego. History occasionally respects strategy as opposed to money and power. Not often, but sometimes.
It's doubtful he'll end up on the debate stage as his low polling numbers will give the networks a semi-credible out. I'd say use that your advantage. Rail against the media for not allowing a third, alternative perspective. And then you can push your slogan --- The Lesser of Three Evils.
Johnson's other positions --- generally is opposed to military intervention, wants to abolish the nonsensical war on drugs and stop the mindless incarceration, wants to simplify the tax code and slash govt. spending across the board. His religious views can be summed up in one sentence --- do unto others...
More registered voters likely value her opinion over John Kasich's. That's the current sad state of affairs in the U.S. of A. And just wait. I assure you it's going to get much worse. If you don't think an anti-government false flag is coming, you're outta your mind. Hint: dominipede.
Could very well be how Trump pulls it off in 2016.
Politics is all about timing and momentum. Just ask that guy with the peculiar name... you know, the one who has occupied the White House for the last 7 years.
