There’s nothing to look forward to in the 2016 election season. Instead, let us look forward and ask the right questions? Why will Austin Petersen not be in the oval office come 2020? Here are a few:
1. He Hates Safety
Can you believe it? In an interview with Jason Stapleton, Austin Petersen had the gall to say that it is not the government’s job to protect its citizens, but rather to protect its citizens’ liberties. Austin loves the terrorists.
2. He Despises Loyalty
You stand for liberal principles, but the Democratic Party elected Clinton, who gets in bed with numerous big businesses. You stand for conservative principles, but the Republican Party elected Trump, who gets in numerous beds.
Petersen wants you to abandon your party and vote Libertarian, as a principled vote or as a protest vote. He wants you to sell out your loyal party to vote with your conscience. Austin loves the Brutuses of the world.
3. He Refuses To Be Kind
Austin is a jerk. One time in a live stream he said Gary Johnson was very antithetical to libertarianism in his stance on #bakethecakegate. First he tells you to abandon your party, then he tells you to call someone out on inconsistency? The only thing Mr. Petersen embraces more than treason is incivility.
4. He Loathes The Government Helping People
You have five mouths to feed; three children, your spouse, and yourself. You try to find a job, but man is this economy terrible. Does Austin care? No. Instead of you being dependent on the welfare system, he wants you to get up, reach out and ask for someone to help you in your time of need.
The government doesn’t ask you to swallow your pride. Austin loves to kill your self-esteem.
Could you vote for someone who hates safety, loyalty, kindness, and help? I sure hope not. Come 2020, I sure hope you make the right decision and choose the Clinton/Trump ticket.
