The 2020 Presidential election is turning out to be one of the most dynamic in modern political history. With the Coronavirus pandemic sweeping the news cycle and the major party candidates having the highest unfavorable ratings in recent history, many in this country can’t stomach the idea of casting their votes for either of them. Our rights have been stripped from us in the name of “safety” and our leaders are outright ignoring the rule of law and the Constitution.
The American people have a choice to make. They can no longer buy into the age-old argument that you have to vote for the lesser of two evils. As voters, we get trapped into this argument every election season as if we have to hold our nose and vote for somebody we really don’t believe in. The future of this country can no longer depend on ignorance, and as citizens of this great Republic, we have to stand up and make our voices heard.
I am standing up and making my voice heard by saying I won’t be forced into voting for somebody that I don’t believe in. I am standing by my conscience and voting for the best candidate that will bring a sense of brightness to this country’s future. I am voting for Justin Amash and the Libertarian Party in November.
As a longtime Republican that supported George Bush in 2004, and joined the Ron Paul Revolution of 2008 and 2012, I saw the destruction of the Republican Party. Over the past four years with the rise of Donald Trump, and his anti-American rhetoric, our country is on a path of destruction at the hands of cronyism. Therefore, holding true to my Libertarian principles, I switched my party affiliation and became an active member of the Libertarian Party.
Amash is the sane choice for America and is the only one in this race that has any type of successful governing experience. Having served as as a Congressman from Michigan Amash has stood his ground as the most principled member of the Republican Party and now as the only independent in Congress. He stood his ground against a President out to gain power in anyway imaginable and fought day and night for the Constitution.
Amash is the only candidate in this election who makes sense on the issues important for this country. He advocates an agenda that stands on the principle of limited government in both economic and social life. Freedom is the center point of his thinking and guides his campaign for the Presidency. We need a candidate that stands up for the rights of all Americans and advocates the concept of letting me live the life that I want to live as long as my actions don’t affect other individuals.
Justin Amash stands for something new. For a government that secures our rights. For equality before the law. For an end to cronyism. For a government that fulfills its purpose and recognizes its limits. For practical approaches based in humility and trust of the people. For an honest, principled president who will defend the Constitution and put individuals first.
I stand behind every one of these positions as do many Americans. The Libertarian way of thinking is universal among many in the United States and holds a basic view on the way that society should function.
“As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others.”
“We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.” (See LP Platform)
My message for anyone that thinks they have to vote for the lesser of two evils is simple: listen to your conscience and realize that your vote as a citizen of the United States is precious. Don’t let anyone tell you by not voting for the Democrats, or Republicans, you are wasting your vote. No vote is wasted if it is cast in good judgment and based on what candidate you think is best for this country.
