I’ve been sending votes to Libertarians for many years now, not because I actually want them elected (OMG, some of these people are like great uncle Charlie who can talk about global warming, the budget deficit, Area 51, and a flat earth, all with the same lucidity and seriousness) but because I hope the main parties will move slightly in the direction of fiscal responsibility to capture Libertarian voters. Having grown up in a severely Republican household (Dad worked in the SBA under Reagan) I like to say I’ve never voted for a Democrat, I’ve just voted against some Republicans. This year I was ready to vote for any down-ticket Republican who denounced Trump… okay, how about any who stayed neutral on Trump… okay, how abo — nah, screw it, it’s gonna be (D) and (L) this year. <sigh>

Already voted, btw. No formal early voting in PA, but an extremely loose absentee ballot system.
