Voting to punish "the two party system" or because you think a third-party candidate best fits your views will condemn many of your fellow citizens to Trump's wrath and the world to an uncertain and unstable future.

While it is easy to understand the reasons that some people might be inclined to choose a "protest" vote -- or decide to sit on their hands -- the fact is that either of these actions will have one and only one result: putting Donald Trump into the White House.

Privilege Isn't An Effective Argument For Clinton

If Clinton supporters genuinely want a united front against Donald Trump, they must recognize the fact that millions of voters no longer have the privilege of simply maintaining the status quo and living to fight another day--they are, on the contrary, already fighting to live another day.

Kate Peterson

I understand that in the end many people are just too frightened of Trump to worry about their hearts right now. Fair enough. So all I ask is that you think about how hard this is for you, how hard it is going to be to vote for someone who you don't believe, or believe in.

D. C. Rutledge

Although many Bernie Sanders supporters were understandably dismayed by his endorsement of political rival Hillary Clinton, it's important to remember what he has been saying all along: this political revolution is not about him, or any one candidate for that matter, it is about us.

It's unnerving to see diehard Sanders supporters saying they would never vote for Clinton. Doing so would not only threaten the nation (and the world) with a bigoted, misogynistic, and proudly ignorant conman, but it would completely destroy the revolution they claim to care so much about.

Will Political Winds Favor the Libertarians?

James Peron | Posted 05.24.2016 | Politics
James Peron

America is ready for a real third party. It may not be the Libertarian Party -- which also has to battle it's own ideologues within the party -- but if one does come into existence it will have to embrace the middle ground of social liberalism and fiscal conservatism.
