When the 2020 Libertarian POTUS race began, I was thrilled to support my friend Kim Ruff. However, she departed the race on January 11, 2020.
Since then, I have been asked countless times who I’ll be supporting, and have taken a closer look at all of the announced Libertarian candidates for President. There are several candidates in this race that I respect, and that I could support should they get the nomination. The candidates I could support all know how to articulate Libertarian principles, though they have different styles in how they deliver their message and issues on which they focus.
One of my top pet issues is Criminal Justice Reform. As a Presidential candidate in 2016, and now as a gubernatorial candidate in NH, pardoning all people convicted of non-violent victimless crimes has been a major part of my platform, along with repealing those laws altogether.
Other top issues include ending the wars, bringing the troops home, free trade & open immigration, cutting the budget, and reducing taxes to as close to zero as possible.
These are all issues that libertarians and Libertarians should be able to agree with, however a few of the candidates in the race, sadly, do not. Of those who do, there is one candidate I believe will best articulate and promote these ideas, and has a resume to support this belief.
I’m endorsing a candidate who is a Life Member of the Libertarian Party, has been a member since the 1980’s, and was the 1996 Vice Presidential nominee. I am endorsing Jo Jorgensen for President of the United States, and urge you to likewise support Jo Jorgensen: the perfect Libertarian to represent the Libertarian Party in 2020!
