I want to get there, man, but he just doesn't do it for me. He's not sufficiently libertarian for a libertarian. Either he's not philosophically there or he recognizes that too high a percentage of the voting public WANTS to control the actions of others, just in different ways.

Don't get me wrong: he's not Hillary or Donald. And that's no small achievement. The best practical definition of "dilemma" which I can give is being stuck in an elevator with those two tossers and a gun with only one bullet.

Easy.  Shoot him in the head, then use the gun to beat her to death.  Problem solved.  ;D

Lebowski would have my vote if I was American. The presidential candidates are something special to say the least

It's a given that there is no candidate that I actually support.
It's more an exercise in finding one that might potentially not be a huge mound of steaming shit.
I actually am unlikely to vote for a presidential candidate.
Or maybe I'll vote Johnson with the certainty that it's a wasted vote.

Where can I buy that shirt? Sums up my view of this election to a tee (I don't think The Dude used many puns). Anyway, it would really tie my hatred of Hillary and Trump together.
Religion is the opiate of the masses. White russians are the abiding force.

I don't really know.  Someone posted the image on Farcebook and I liked it, so I saved it.  I'd bet you'll find a bunch of them if you do a Google search for "Lebowski 16" or "Lebowski 2016".
