I’ve always had the belief that you vote for someone you believe in. When you cast your vote, you want that person to be president. You don’t vote for one politician so that another doesn’t become president. And yet here you have an instance where people don’t want either the Democrat or Republican nominee as president! People are going to vote for Donald Trump because they don’t want Hillary Clinton — and people are going to vote for Clinton because they don’t want Trump. That’s a horrible way to pick the next commander-in-chief.
What astounds me is that the American public willingly accepts that these are the two choices the political gangs that run our country are offering us. And until this country wakes up and realizes that there are in fact more than two choices, despite what mainstream media shoves down our throats, then this is what we’re going to get.
Ron Paul mentioned that he’s probably going to vote Libertarian this year. He should. After all, he was their presidential nominee back in 1988. Come November, I will join him, voting for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson again, just like I did in 2012. He’s on the ballot in all 50 states, and this year I hope voters won’t be lemmings. This is the year for a third party to rise, if there ever was one. This is the time for the people to stand up and say, “We’ve had enough, and we’re still in charge.” Whether voters exercise that option, we’ll have to see.
