Voting gives Americans a sense of purpose. We are taught to believe that our ability to vote for a presidential candidate actually matters, as it is a decision that will affect us for the rest of our lives.

She has made a name for herself amongst both the Republican and Democratic parties by taking...

The best presidential candidate you knew existed

Stephen Philips, Staff Writer

October 9, 2012

If you want a president who will end all unnecessary foreign wars, bring all of our troops back home, and will end the domestic war on drugs, then Gary Johnson just might have your vote.
