Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for a link to the following, which is an article by Zoltan Istvan, founder of the Transhumanist Party, titled “To Grow Third-Party Politics in America, Make John McAfee the Libertarian Party Nominee”:
In America and around the world, people are in disbelief over the 2016 US Presidential election so far. Bernie Sanders has risen to become a legend for the youth and hard left leaning. Trump is on his way to forever transforming the Republican Party and likely challenging Hillary Clinton for the most powerful position in the world. Cruz and Rubio, like tens of millions of Americans, are standing baffled at what has transpired in the last year.
The elections have become a flamboyant game show. And the people in the audience cheering the most are shareholders of media companies who are selling more ads than ever.
Unfortunately, much of the chaos and media antics haven’t translated too favorably yet for Third parties. Quietly, candidates like myself at the Transhumanist Party, attempt to spread our messages. Don’t get me wrong. We are succeeding, but not in the way that America deserves. America owes it to itself to hear the plight of the other leading 50 presidential candidates out there, who also bear important messages. Many of them are astute people that would likely govern well, like Harvard educated physician Jill Stein of the Green Party and Rod Silva of the Nutrition Party.
The good news for America is that the Libertarian Party will probably be on all 50 state ballots, meaning it’s possible that the Libertarian Party presidential candidate could significantly alter the outcome of the elections.
