As a lifelong libertarian, I’ve found presidential elections to be a largely meaningless exercise, a choice between tweedledee and tweedledum. Libertarianism is about protecting individual liberty and keeping state power in check. Neither Republicans nor Democrats do either consistently. So if I dragged myself to the polls, it was mainly because, as a naturalized American, I wanted to witness the quadrennial exercise in democracy-making of my adopted country.
Not this time.
This time my civic duty as a libertarian requires me to help defeat President Trump by casting my ballot for the only candidate who can defeat him: Joe Biden.
