Tuesday’s presidential debate was a total fiasco. Americans watched the debate to learn about each candidate’s platform and solutions to our nation’s issues. Instead we witnessed a national embarrassment and disgraceful moment in our country’s history, and nobody learned anything except that they have to choose between two terrible men. Is this really the best America has to offer for President?
Turns out, the answer is no. There is a third candidate, Libertarian Dr. Jo Jorgensen. Unlike Trump and Biden, who offer no real solutions and are relying on stirring up hatred and fear to win, Dr. Jorgensen has answers and real policy proposals. She has a different vision for America, one where the individual is empowered to make the changes he or she wants to see. Her vision is one of love, hope and brotherhood.
So many people visited Dr. Jorgensen’s website, jo20.com, in search of a better candidate that the high volume caused it to crash! Americans want to hear her message! They want to let her speak! However, the Commission on Presidential Debates excluded her from the first debate, because they don’t want Americans to know they have a choice outside the two-party system. They don’t want Americans to know there is a better candidate than what this system has to offer.
Dr. Jorgensen will appear on the ballot in all 50 states and D.C. right alongside Trump and Biden. Last night’s spike in Google searches for “libertarian candidate” and “Jo Jorgensen” demonstrate that there is no reason to silence the only woman in the race and exclude her from the other debates.
That’s why I urge everyone reading this to call the Commission at (202) 872-1020 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and demand Dr. Jo Jorgensen be included in the next two presidential debates. I also urge everyone to get involved in the Orange County New York Libertarian Party. Contact us at email@example.com or at https://www.facebook.com/ocnylp, and come meet 2018 gubernatorial candidate Larry Sharpe on October 13th at 7 PM at A Better Place Bar and Grill, 200 rt 32, Central Valley.
