I’m so tired of hearing this nonsense from both sides: "A vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Hillary. A vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Trump."
For Heaven’s sake, ENOUGH of that broken record! Remember the Electoral College? That institution that guarantees one party will take all the state’s electoral votes in the presidential election?

Additionally, his vote in favor of the “More Cops” tax comes as a surprise; this is a measure the Libertarian Party of Nevada has tirelessly fought the Clark County Commission on for years.Read more
