Three Beats Two

People complain about divided government where a president from one party is in power and Congress is in power from the other side of the aisle. This is called checks and balances, and it hasn’t worked for a long time.

More people are disenfranchised today than ever, few have a real voice, and we have more laws and less freedom. I don’t have a quick answer for this, but I am sure Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are not the solution.

I hope Libertarian Gary Jonson will catch on with the public and he’ll get to debate with the other two. Then we can clearly have a choice. Three in this case is better than two.
