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.

Mum on the entire situation, the White House seems content with allowing Tahmooressi to remain captive in Mexico, despite clear evidence of injustice and reports of severe mistreatment.
