VIDEO: The Very Intriguing Libertarian Ticket

libertarian_PartyWith Bill Weld (former two-term MA governor) joining the bottom of the Libertarian Party ticket alongside Gary Johnson (former two-term NM governor), I have to say I’m intrigued.

They can count on:

  1. Elected office experience (far more than the presumptive GOP nominee)
  2. Track record (far more, etc)
  3. A decent runway on an issue that some portion of the electorate cares deeply about (pot legalization). They are “on the right side of history,” in terms of what will happen over the next 10 years.
  4. Totally pissed off wings of the major parties, that dislike their respective leaders, opening the way for outsized third-party success in 2016.

I’m not saying they’ll win or anything, or even necessarily gain any electoral college votes, but they could be a significant factor in the election, especially in a number of states. They are worthy of attention and coverage in any case.

I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
