Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Libertarians say party discord opens door for them

ImageFrom the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on July 22:

"Trump-wary Republicans are defecting from the GOP. Liberal Democrats are distrustful of their party’s presumptive nominee. And voters of both parties are tired of partisan clogging the works. 


"This could be the Libertarian Party’s moment.
 Presidential nominee Gary Johnson and running mate Bill Weld believe so.

Did Ted Cruz just endorse Gary Johnson?

Sub-Title: 

It sounded like it and the Libertarian Party proudly welcomes Cruz supporters.

Last night at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Cruz encouraged Americans to "vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution."

The Libertarian Party agrees.

Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee, says, "Come November, we encourage those who seek to follow their conscience, who love freedom and the Constitution, as Sen. Cruz describes, to vote Libertarian. We have candidates running for positions ranging from President to City Council."

How to talk with your Republican friend

Dear Libertarian,

Many of us have Republican friends who are pretty frustrated right now. I bet you know someone who is. Maybe a close friend, a family member, a Facebook friend...

They are not bad people, and they aren't blind either. They see that Trump is a bully, that he's unqualified. They agree he should not become President. Our country deserves better, and they expected better from their party. They feel betrayed and maybe just a little bit...politically homeless right now. Remember that feeling?

Gary Johnson: The GOP Is a Dying Party. That’s Why I’m Running Against Trump

ImageFrom Politico on July 19:

"'This is a decisive moment in the history of party politics in America. In the period leading up to the Civil War, American politics was dominated by a Democratic Party and the Whig Party. The controversy over slavery split the Whigs, and the party embraced nativism, opposing immigration and members of certain religious faiths.'
