Can't vote for Trump or Clinton? You have 2 legitimate alternatives

In the best of all possible worlds, the U.S. presidential election would feature a pair of candidates who don't engage in juvenile insults or racially charged rhetoric, don't provoke the Federal Bureau of Investigation to offer proof of serial dishonesty and have no history of bankruptcy or complicity in White House scandals. Ideally, these two nominees would distinguish themselves with their integrity, coherent policy views and ability to address important issues in fresh, substantive and truthful ways.

Well, American voter, things are not as bad as you may think. You have not one respectable alternative to these candidates but two. They are Gary Johnson, nominated in June by the Libertarian Party, and Jill Stein, who is expected to be chosen at the Green Party national convention next month. Thanks partly to the major party nominees, these two (who won the same nominations four years ago) are gaining the kind of attention that minor party candidates rarely get. Though neither is likely to be on the ballot in all 50 states, they will be options for the vast majority of voters.

Might want to consider writing in Darrel Castle if he is not on the ballot in your state. Gary Johnson's answers to some of the questions in the Libertarian debates were far from satisfying.

(look up and watch the debates yourselves, and see if he applies the ZAP {Zero Aggression Principle} to all he would do as President) This is one of the few times I am thankful we have 13 candidates on the ballot instead of 3. Gary Johnson sides with the Liberal side of the Supreme Court on religious freedom, that is, it should be limited by popular opinion. I'm sorry he is the nominee of the Libertarian party, when either of the other two candidates would have had a more truly libertarian stand. The people experiencing the fastest decline in their liberties are people of strong faith convictions, and Gary Johnson has made clear this would continue under his administration.

As the Constitution Party candidate, Darrell appears to offer a good alternative worth considering.

I recommend checking out his campaign website if you haven't already:
