I spent the morning reading about Libertarian Presidential candidate, Gary Johnson.
How cool that there is a THIRD PARTY choice!!! I agree with A LOT of his stances on major issues, but there are a few things that I don't - but at least on those things I understand WHY he has the stance he does.
I suppose there will never be one single candidate that thinks EXACTLY like I do.
But, I am super stoked. Remember I told you in chat, I campaigned for Ralph Nader with my big sister back when he was running for the Green Party. It was super fun, even I was just under voting age still. I'm thinking I will be on campus at my college a lot before the election this year, and I would LOVE to do some campaigning. I'm going to keep reading about this guy and see if I can get behind him 100%.
Are you familiar with thim? I'm thinking you must be since you asked last night if anyone even knew who was representing other parties besides rep and dem. =)
I also read that if he can get 15% of support in the polls, he will be on stage for the big presidential debate alongside Obama and Romney. THAT could be HUGE! I think A LOT of people don't even know there is a 3rd choice, and if people would do their own research and learn some things, I think they would be surprised and happy to have another choice.
Red, is Ron Paul still in the race? I think I read he is, but is not actively campaigning? If Ron Paul supporters got on board with Johnson, it would push him over the 15% needed to participate in the debate. From what I have read so far, his platform is very similar anyway. What do you think?
