With the campaign for President in full swing, the country is on the verge of choosing its next leader. It would appear that many in this country are starting to look beyond the old age system we have had in place for centuries and turning to new ideas like Libertarianism.
Gary Johnson has received his second major newspaper endorsement, which puts him above Donald Trump who has yet to receive any major newspaper endorsements for this campaign.
The editorial board the Winston-Salem Journal in North Carolina declared their support for Johnson over the weekend.
For months, we here at the Journal editorial board wrestled with this endorsement. For most of that time, we looked at Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump. But as the weekly revelations ripped away any hopes we held for finding the “better angels of their nature,” confirming our belief that neither is fit to be president of our still-great land of Lincoln, we began to look harder at Johnson. We refused to let the powerful party behind either Clinton or Trump push us into a bad choice simply because the parties could do no better.
We join many Americans in being sick of the status quo in American politics, particularly presidential politics, that has far drifted from the bedrock ideals of our fabulous Founders. On this day, by endorsing Gary Johnson, we issue a challenge to change that status quo.
As questions are raised about the sanity of Trump, and the health of Clinton, Gary Johnson is starting to fill a void for voters in November. He is a sane alternative for this country and is in tip top shape health.
