Katharine Host started this petition to Commission on Presidential Debates and

“[Political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” - George Washington

And as it always has, history continues to repeat itself today. The thoughts of many are contorted or silenced to the radical minority’s liking. Despite years of urging, the Commission on Presidential Debates continues to refuse to allow a third party to have a voice in the presidential debates. Could this be, perhaps, because like many others who identify with the two parties, they refuse to let votes slip from their candidate to a third party? 

The principles this country was founded on was for the individual. The free thinker. Not to be held in a duopoly of thought. Many don’t like either presidential candidate, but refuse to vote for a third party because they simply believe a third party won’t win. They believe this because they’ve been taught it. Individuals deserve to vote for the candidate that will voice their views best, not settle for a mediocre, lesser of two evils.

The Libertarian Party is the only third party in US history to be on the ballot in all 50 states in back-to-back presidential elections. The Libertarian party has the values America was built on and has the dedication of a legitimate party in a way no third party has before.

The current Libertarian Party presidential candidate is Jo Jorgensen. She’s a college lecturer who’s running with Spike Cohen for VP. Feel free to check them out if you’re not convinced that we should have more than two considerations for president. 

The Libertarian Party believes in ending the War on Drugs, a war that causes the majority of the gun violence in America and continuously restricts the rights of the American citizen to have control over their own body. A war that fills our prisons with marijuana users rather than real, violent criminals. A war that adds to the black market economy. A war that continues to keep Americans on drugs by punishing them for seeking help. A war that continues to prove that Prohibition doesn’t work. The Libertarian party believes in ending the War on Terror, a war that has kept Americans in other countries and has made countless casualties. Wars are supposed to be meaningful and rare. A constant war on never-ending terrorist organizations takes away both meaning and rarity. This party actually believes in bringing the troops home. The Libertarian Party believes in ending many foreign entanglements and in doing so ending wars, ending casualties, reducing threat of terrorism,  reducing hatred of America in other countries, and fostering peace. It also ends the government’s excuse for overspending, high taxes, and excessive government debt. The Libertarian Party believes in police reform and defunding. This would include taking away aspects from the police like militarization, immunity, and No-Knock warrants. But more than anything the Libertarian Party believes in life, liberty, and property, and that the government should protect, not restrict, these things.

The hope for the Libertarian Party is simple: a chance. End the two party duopoly that has held the American public hostage for decades. Give the voters what they want and let them have a third party debater, Jo Jorgensen, on the stage September 29th, October 15th, and October 22nd. If the other presidential candidates are better, then at least let them prove it on the debate stage. It’s time to give America its voice back.
