To the Editor:
“You’re throwing away your vote.”… “You can’t vote for a third-party candidate unless there’s a lot of people voting for a third-party candidate.”.... “You can’t vote for him/her, they have no chance to win; you have to wait for a lot of people to vote for them.”
I get told this all the time. When I was not sure who I wanted to vote for, I was told voting for a third-party candidate was “throwing away my vote.” That is a lie. I have voted for Democrats and I have voted for Republicans, but I am neither a Democrat/liberal nor a Republican/conservative. Both are two authoritarian for me – telling everyone else how to live their lives and how they think you should live. Kash Jackson and other Libertarians helped me figure out where I am on the political spectrum and what I want out of my elected officials.
It’s time to end the “you’re wasting your vote” cycle this November! I’m voting for Kash Jackson for governor of Illinois.
