I kind of want a t-shirt that say "come be libertarian with me."

It might be better if the O was a monocle.

OK, I liked that part.

The rest was bad, though. Especially repeatedly superimposing the image of the candidate they're trying to pimp over all the riot police and whatnot. And the whole thing, as my friend described it, "Gave me this very vivid impression of big speakers up on poles, and under them, a man leaning over a desk while standing up, ranting into a microphone."

It should have been at most half that long, and far less crazy. You can point to bad shit and say "we're against the bad shit" without getting froth on your shirt.

So far, I'm entirely safe from the threat of the Johnson campaign being good enough at communicating anything or getting enough good attention to make me feel obligated to throw them a vote.

why yes.

it should probably be of no surprise, however, given that the finest moment of libertarian visual design is the r"evol"ution ron paul stamp thing where love is spelled backwards. sad but true.

but that's what happens when you spray an organization with whatever they used to repel women and homos and minorities and anyone else who might have a creative bone in their body. same reason most of the jesus junk stuff is so ghastly.

or power metal album covers.

the lp does get credit for creating a website that actually pisses in your mouth when you look at it. plus their logo is great.

somewhere a tri state area women's college basketball team is really mad at having missed out on a great logo.

oh wait no they're not

That's good, but I wish Gary Johnson would hook up with the designer who did this ad, and used some of his millions for diction and speaking coaching so he could at least fade in reliably afterward, because I think this is actually the finest moment of libertarian visual design:



Imagine if that analogy led to "and that's what the DEA, ICE, and the TSA do to us every day, and only one man in this election is willing to stop them."

This kind of thing being deep within parts of institutional libertarianism is why we should not have been as surprised at the general rightward lurch of libertarianism that happened in the Obama years and especially wrt Trump supporting libertarians.

[Racist Tweet]
It was never asserted that the newsletters were "youthful indiscretions". The claim was that Paul didn't write them, and that he wasn't paying attention to what was being published in his name at the time.
It needs to be a rule, if it isn't already, that judgement should not be passed on a person's crazy ramblings once senility has set in.
