Letters from Jo Jorgensen

Independents are the largest group of voters in America - nearly 40% of the electorate. More than 70% of independents want an alternative to the Democrats and Republicans. They want an option for President other than Donald Trump or Joe Biden.

Are you one of them? 

I’m running for the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party, America’s third-largest and fastest-growing political party. Once I receive my party’s nomination, I will appear on every state ballot, offering a real alternative to the Republican-Democrat stranglehold on government.

What will I do as President?

I will use my authority as commander in chief to bring our troops home. We will stop fighting undeclared foreign wars and leave wealthy Europe to fund their own defense. America will become "One Giant Switzerland" - armed and neutral.

I will use my pardon power to free people convicted of exposing government corruption, violating unconstitutional dictates, or committing “crimes” without a victim. The land of the free will no longer lead the world in incarceration.

I will make liberal use of my constitutional authority to veto:

  • every appropriations bill for which there is no constitutional authority. 
  • every spending bill or budget that authorizes increased spending or additional borrowing. 
  • every bill that lumps unrelated proposals together. 
  • every bill so lengthy or "urgent" that members of Congress didn’t have time to read it before voting.

We have no right to saddle our children and grandchildren with trillions of dollars of debt every year, just to help politicians remain in power. I will insist that Congress set priorities, balance the budget, and put an end to deficit spending.

I will propose legislation to make the FDA advisory instead of dictatorial, as a first step toward ending political control over your health care. The FDA has been a major bottleneck in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, blocking access to testing, personal protective gear, and ventilators.  I will also push to repeal laws blocking the import of medicines from other countries. Your health care choices should be entirely between you and your doctor.

There are much better ways to provide access to affordable health care than “Medicare for All” or corporate welfare for insurance companies. I will work with Congress to create a truly competitive market in health care, so you can get the care you need without going broke.

I will also work with Congress to permanently fix our unsustainable Social Security system. Democratic and Republican politicians keep kicking the can down the road, crossing their fingers in hopes that the system won’t collapse while they’re in office. This is unconscionable. 

You should have the right to “opt-out” of Social Security entirely and take complete control of your financial future. If you choose to remain in the system, your future contributions should be held in an individual account that you own and control, so that politicians can no longer hold your retirement for ransom. Sale of government assets, not taxes, should be used to pay benefits for current retirees. That’s real retirement security.

Are you noticing the theme of my commitments? Less power for politicians and more choice for you. 

Compare that with Biden or Trump. Will you really be better off if you vote for either of them? 

Your vote is a powerful message saying “this is what I want.” If you would be better off with the policies I’ve outlined rather than those of Biden or Trump, then demonstrate it by giving me your support and your vote.

Do you want to see Biden and Trump have to debate me? Then you need to start telling people right now that you intend to vote for me, so that I will have the standing in the polls to qualify for the debates. 

You don’t have to listen to the media telling you that you only have two options. You don’t have to settle for the “lesser of two evils.” You can vote for what you really want, and walk out of the voting booth proud of having stood up for your beliefs.

Your actions now will help determine the choices you have in November, and how loudly your voice is heard. Please invest in the future by:

*snip*

I can unite independent voters and provide America with a real Libertarian alternative. But I need your help to make it happen. Please join my team today. Thank you!

I am not so sure she is the best third party candidate but she is more normal as a person than most of the other Libertarian candidates.  The one I was hoping to vote for has dropped out.

I was hoping for something like this, but not quite this.  It seems like a mixed bag, some good ideas and some bad ones.

If we pulled our military presence home collectively, the dollar would crash within a cycle, irrevocably.

One of the only things stemming the dollar's demise, is the presence of our military hardware and personnel across the globe.

'Murica's economy has always been the economy of military intimidation.

So, who's gonna fill that power vacuum? Russia? China?
And when they do, how long before they start to threaten You?

The most efficient method to keep trouble at bay, is to take the fight abroad, far away from home. If You don't, it will come knocking on Your door.

Meh, the third party candidates just rob votes from one side or another. They never have a chance in Hell.

But they could if enough people voted their conscience instead of their "party".

Why do the mods allow political ads on this site? They're spam. And annoying. Some of us come here for knowledge and entertainment and to escape that sh+t.

So it is ok to post anything about Trump and Biden running for president, even poll asking who you think will win, but mentioning another candidate is posting a political ad?  If you find it annoying then stay away from the U.S. Politics threads.

It is a hope of mine, but I am not delusional I know most voters in this country are mind numbed zombies choosing a party and mindlessly supporting it no matter what.
