OK Libertarians, it’s time to get serious.

Most of us know that The Libertarian Party grew tremendously with Gary Johnson. Gary is not only a friend to many of us. Gary is a badass! Gary climbed the highest peaks of all seven continents. Gary was known as “Governor Veto”, standing in the way of government waste of all kinds. Gary rode his bike from Canada to Mexico atop the continental divide. And Gary was willing to do the work that brought in over 4 million votes for president in 2016. It took a strong person to achieve all this and it will take another strong person to not only protect the ballot access that you all work so hard to maintain, but also to keep that momentum going in 2020.

Well, guess what? The Libertarian Party was fortunate enough to bring in another Governor with his own achievements that show that he too is a badass! This governor of Rhode Island was elected as an Independent. This man was the only Republican United States Senator to vote against President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq. And this Presidential candidate stood up to Hillary Clinton face to face to challenge her about her e-mail scandal… and lived to tell the tale!

And who is that United States Senator that tried to stop the war before it started? Who is that Governor that won a statewide election without the help of the Republican or Democratic Parties? And who is that badass Presidential Candidate that challenged Hillary Clinton face to face?

I would like to offer my endorsement for and introduce the next President of the United States, and Libertarian badass. Governor Lincoln Chafee!

Governor Chafee has the experience to take over the oval office on day one. He has the gumption to stand up against the powers that be, no matter how powerful they are. He has won elections for city, state, and federal office.

When Governor Chafee talks, the media listens. We need that type of powerhouse if we are to keep the momentum going. The United States needs honest leadership that will do the right things, and work to knock down the blockades against your freedom that have been building higher and higher for decades. The nominating convention is coming up very quickly. It’s time to rally behind the one person running for this nomination that already knows how to do the job. I encourage you all to support Governor Lincoln Chafee as the Libertarian Party nominee for President of the United States.
