We have that choice now.  We can write in a name of a person on the ballot.

Ja.  I thought of a good excuse for not voting other than laziness: one does
not want to risk voting for the winner, then after the fact having that
winner turn into a corrupt and inept disaster of a leader, a complete
catastrophe.  I can imagine that feeling being very common after the events
of the last couple months.

Most of us realize the libertarians' day is coming.  When they get in power,
there is a risk they will forget their principles, fail to dismantle all the
government power structures that have grown outside constitutionally legal
bounds.  Always in my mind is the fear that they too will be as inept and
corruptible as the democrats and republicans have become.
