The Libertarian Choice — A Dated Governor Or An Internet Troll
What exactly Libertarians are is hotly debated; but the general gist as I understand it is Republican economic policies and Democratic foreign policies, with social issues favoring whichever side favors less regulations and restrictions on others’ lives. On paper it sounds like a solid platform that could win over voters and shake up the two-party system. In reality the Libertarian Party is filled with fringe types, retread politicians way past their due date, and almost Democrats & Republicans whose beef with their would-be party on one issue or another led them to identify as a Libertarian.
Nonetheless, desperate times call for desperate measures and plenty #NeverTrump folks are ready to back the Libertarian party nominee if need be. The Libertarian candidates however consist of…well how can I put this politely? Eccentric possibilities. Only one has experience actually governing in political office?—?you know, something the President is going to have to do. Of the 16 running, two have generated the most buzz: Gary Johnson and Austin Petersen, so we’re going to focus on them.
