I would choose Mike Gravel out of the two but I think Ron Paul wins due to name regulation and Mike Gravel being portrayed as radical hippie with Dennis Kucinich  as his VP.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Gravel/Paul. Good luck getting me to vote for a ticket with Jim DeMint on it.

No matter who wins, America loses. However, I would vote for Gravel on party loyalty alone.

What wrong with this election? Is it because you and the establishment  hate that Gravel and Paul won't be boring sell outs? Or are you someone that hates drugs and wants the war continue that should  have been abolished and all drugs should be legalize?

Didn't you just vote for "RP/RP"? It jumped from two votes to three just now.

Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich are the opposite of nutjobs. They just are forgotten by corporate owned media and would get better results if people found out about both of them.

Gravel ran in the primaries as someone more left-wing than even Kucinich. He only became a libertarian afterwards to seek their nomination.

Probably support Gravel, though Paul would win. I just have never been that enameled to Ron Paul and his revolution, though I certainly don't like Jim DeMint.

It's more than the religious right that believe abortion should end. Some libertarians do as well. I totally agree with the war and terrorism. We need further discussions on the drug debate with an understanding that medical weed should be usable without threat of arrest.

Most libertarians would say that abortion is none of the governments business. I happen not to agree, being a pro-life democrat, but still, your point was wrong.

Non-aggression axiom would almost require libertarians to embrace the pro-life cause.
