If there is one thing of which I am certain, it is that both the Democrat and Republican parties want you to believe that this election is a binary proposition. In other words if you do not vote for Donald Trump, you are voting for Hillary Clinton and vice versa. They don’t want you to believe you have any options other than voting for one of the main candidates.
Several times this week during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, I have heard speakers specifically say that if you do not vote for Donald Trump, you are voting for Hillary Clinton. I commented on this last night on Twitter.
No, a vote for @GovGaryJohnson is not a vote for @HillaryClinton. Don’t let anyone convince you that you don’t have options. #Election2016

During this election cycle, I have come to believe that the two party system is broken. If the options provided by the two major parties are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, we need more options. The good news is that we already have other options.
The options available to voters will vary from state. However, there is one option that will be available to voters in all 50 states and that is Governor Gary Johnson. Not only is he on the ballot in all 50 states. he is within a couple of percentage points of qualifying for the fall debates.. (You need to have 15% support in the polls. He has 13%.)
Governor Johnson is not the only third-party option receiving attention in the news. Jill Stein is the Green Party candidate for President during this election cycle. She does not have the popularity of Gary Johnson but she is making the news.
There may be other options available to you as well. I am not here to advocate for either option. Although I will admit that at this point, I do plan to vote for one of the third-party candidates. What I am advocating for is the notion that the two-party system in the United States is broken It needs to be fixed. However, nothing will change if we don’t accept the idea that our elections are not binary propositions.
Please, take the time to find out all of your options for President in 2016. Consider supporting one of those options. It’s time for a change and that change starts with us.
