Sam Colt wasn’t too pleased with the presidential election results and hopes for the future of a stronger third political party.

We’ve just elected a new president. And as usual, the election was mostly an ideological duel between the Democrat and Republican parties. I have strong opinions about both parties, but I did not support either of them. I think America’s political duality is over limiting and narcissistic. That’s part of why I support the Libertarian party. I’m a libertarian because it represents my views: stressing civil liberties and minimal government intrusion.
Of course, the Libertarian presidential nominee didn’t win the election. But that doesn’t make me feel obligated to label myself with a party that doesn’t represent me. I’m going to continue support for my party and voice my opinion as much as I can, because other voices should be heard.
Americans should be faithful in their ideologies rather than aligning themselves between the two popular parties. Having only two political parties is paramount to asking America’s citizens to choose whether they like Coke or Pepsi. But what if they like Perrier? I’ll stick with water.
