Trump, Clinton…or a third choice?

June 18, 2016

Clinton & TrumpIf you’re not happy about having to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump —and who is genuinely happy about it? — there’s something you can do: ask for a third choice.

Libertarian Gary Johnson is the only other candidate who will be on the ballot in all 50 states.  But most Americans don’t know about Johnson because the media and some national pollsters are ignoring him.

Whether or not we eventually vote for him, shouldn’t Johnson at least be mentioned by the media, included in national polls, and allowed to participate in the Presidential debates this fall?

Here are five simple things you can do:

  1. Send the following complaint to the media whenever their stories about Clinton and Trump fail to at least mention Johnson: “There is a third candidate on the ballot in all 50 states, so shouldn’t he at least be mentioned in your stories?”
  2. Sign this petition urging the pollsters to include Johnson along with Clinton and Trump in the national polls.
  3. Sign this petition urging the Commission on Presidential Debates to invite all candidates who have qualified for the ballot in all 50 states.
  4. Education yourself. Take this quiz to see where you stand, learn more about Gary Johnson here, and learn about the Libertarian Party here.
  5. Urge your friends to also do these five simple things.  Together we can make a difference.
  1. What’s more, Gary Johnson has pledged to abstain from using marijuana while he runs for President. I wonder if the Donald and the other one, that woman, can promise as much.

    Seriously, a look at some of Johnson’s quotes ( might make doubters take him more seriously than they would otherwise.
