What a great Presidential debate last night!
I want to extend a warm thank you to all of you who tuned in last night to watch Gary Johnson and Jill Stein debate their views on foreign policy, the economy, US intervention, national security, the environment, international trade, agriculture, and healthcare.
I am so touched by all the support we’ve received through our campaigns, all your Facebook posts, and your passion to make this world a better place. We couldn’t have done something this big without you!
I’ve made a lifelong commitment to electoral reform. My goals are to eliminate ballot access barriers and open the debates so independent and minor parties voices are heard. Instant run-off voting needs to be implemented to rid our country of the wasted vote argument, and the privately-controlled Commission on Presidential Debates must come to an end. Voters want real choices, but the CPD and rigged electoral laws keep viable solutions and candidates hidden from public view.
Remember: the only wasted vote is voting for parties and people controlled by private interest money. The ones who have been playing us as fools for centuries. We’re tired of the reverse-psychology campaigns designed to confuse us, and we are committed and here to stay. We see a powerful and peaceful movement evolving to regain control of our elections, and we hope you’ll join us.
Free & Equal has lots of exciting new projects coming up for 2013, so stay tuned! We’re not going anywhere.
