For the first time in my life, I am voting for a major party presidential candidate. My reasoning, however, has not changed. Tomorrow I will vote for Donald Trump for the same reasons I voted for Ralph Nader in 2004, Chuck Baldwin in 2008, and Gary Johnson in 2012. I am voting against the corrupt, globalist establishment that has ruled this country for decades and left us in a state of economic stagnation, never-ending war, and social degradation.

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson tapped former Massachusetts Governor William Weld as his pick for the Libertarian Party’s 2016 vice presidential nomination.

Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter. However, that is not without its downsides, in particular, when it comes to women. You’ve called women you don’t like “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.” Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who was likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?
