Former Rep. Ron Paul is not voting for either candidate for president in the two main parties, nor does he like what he sees and hears from Libertarian Gary Johnson — which leaves the Green Party's Jill Stein.
"I have not endorsed anybody," Paul said during an interview with MSNBC. "I have mentioned [Stein's] name because I have to look for bits and pieces in all the candidates to come up and try to put it together and have a Libertarian message."
Later in the interview, Paul was asked about Johnson and what he thinks of his candidacy.
"He does not come across of a Libertarian message," Paul said. "I am voting for the principles that create the Libertarian message, and that is nobody can commit aggression. Individuals cannot, nor [can] the government."
Paul added Johnson's recent "Aleppo moments" do not "build confidence," but they should not mean Johnson is "disqualified" from serving as president.
"If the independents who don't know what to do and who they should pick, I say if you tend to lead toward progressivism and liberalism and are interested in expressing yourself, you can vote for the Green party," Paul said.
"I like a lot of what [Stein] says about civil liberties, I like what she says on foreign policy. She's probably the best on foreign policy at the moment."
