Governor Gary Johnson was elected by the Libertarian Party as their Presidential nominee this morning in Orlando, Florida. His chosen running mate, Governor Bill Weld, was elected by the Libertarian Party as their Vice-Presidential nominee this afternoon.
Game on! The power ticket of two former Governors is now ready to take on the political polarizing candidates of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The Libertarian Party has crafted a ticket that will appeal to a broad base of voters who can’t vote for either of the two major candidates.
This ticket stands on a simple platform of fiscal conservatism and social tolerance. They were both successful two-term governors in states dominated by Democrats. They both cut taxes and took the government out of your personal lives.
This country is ready for a change. It is ready to break apart the status quo of constantly voting for the lesser of two evils. The American people now have another option that won’t make them throw up as they cast their votes. They now have a chance to change the political landscape and break apart the two party system.
The nomination of both Governor Johnson and Governor Weld will give credibility to the Libertarian Party that has been building itself up for years as the party of principle. Many think the Libertarians are just a bunch of nut jobs and drug users that complain all the time, but with Johnson and Weld they have the political experience and muscle to bring the party onto the national stage and lend it credibility. Major party status is within reach and the Libertarian Party is on the cusp of being a household name and norm.
