In today's society it's either republican or democrat, you choose one and live by it. When I started taking some interest in politics for the first time, this all confused me so much. How could the entire population of America be divided into only two categories? Why is there no in between, a best of both worlds?
That's when I came across the third parties, I researched what each of them stand for, and it turns out there is a sort of middle ground, the Libertarian party. They generally believe in individual rights, a small and transparent government, they are pro-second amendment, they're for free health care and so much more. The libertarian candidate in the 2016 presidential election is Governor Gary Johnson, he finds importance in, but not limited to, the environment, discrimination, immigration, and education.
So, this presidential election, I will vote for the underdog, Gray Johnson, who stands for those whose values and opinions are more well rounded and not so cut throat. I choose to not settle for who I think would do less harm between Hillary or Trump. I choose to think beyond the two party system - I choose to recognize that their are others who have a plan to fix our country's problems.
