icon May 26 - RFK Jr. eliminated in first round of Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination
 

 
Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was quickly eliminated from contention for the Libertarian Party’s nomination Sunday in the first ballot, ending speculation that he could receive the backing of a major third party before the November election.

Kennedy received support from just 19 delegates, about 2 percent of the vote, during the party’s nominating process at its Washington convention. He addressed the convention Friday, despite saying last month he didn’t intend to seek the party’s nomination.

The delegate who nominated Kennedy from the floor Sunday was met with loud boos from the crowd.

Kennedy used his Friday speech to spar with former President Trump, who also made an appearance at the convention a day later.

“I think he had the right instinct when he came into office,” Kennedy said of Trump. “He was initially very reluctant to impose lockdowns, but then he got rolled by his bureaucrats. He caved in, and many of our most fundamental rights disappeared practically overnight.”

“President Trump allowed his health regulators to mandate science-free social distancing, which undermined our First Amendment rights to freedom of assembly. We could no longer peacefully gather,” he later added.

Trump drew a worse result in the nomination process, garnering only two write-in votes despite a speech that repeatedly urged Libertarians to nominate him. He was forced into a write-in campaign after the party deemed him ineligible for not filing the correct paperwork.

In a shot against Trump, one delegate wrote in adult film star Stormy Daniels, who is at the center of the criminal hush money trial against the former president. That case is expected to be decided by a jury this week.

Kennedy has raised a strong profile among centrists, selling himself as an anti-establishment figure suspicious of the traditions of government. Though Kennedy is widely seen as a long-shot contender against Trump and President Biden, recent polling has suggested he could be a spoiler for Trump in November.

The ex-Democrat has about 8 percent support in The Hill/Decision Desk HQ average of polls, where Trump leads Biden by just more than 1 percent.

On a side note I think trump winning this year. He's the populist on the right and the left just doesn't have that yet. Biden is just anti trump but he doesn't embody the ideals of the majority left

Facts

Biden should not be running for office.

He's too old and there are much more viable candidates out there from the democratic party.


Yeah, he's the incumbent... but who really believes he's going to make it another 4 years

Trump can’t campaign as a populist this time around. That only worked in 2016 when he didn’t have a track record to run on.

You want some massive change right away which is unrealistic

The people who are actually doing the hard work of changing minds slowly over time are the third parties who are actually on ballots on all 50 states and you don't give them the time of day

You could care less that they are on all 50 state ballots. You think that was easy for them to do. You just want microwave democracy, you don't give a sh1t about reality

dude's name is Chase Oliver
emoji


Abortion
Oliver self-identifies as pro-choice, although he is opposed to taxpayer funding of abortions. He believes that abortion should be legal nationwide, and he has said he would support legislation to make it so.

Climate change
Oliver supports letting the free market find the solution to climate change. He contends that if businesses are left alone, they will be incentivized to develop technologies that will eventually replace current carbon-based fuels.

Electoral reform
Oliver is a strong supporter of ranked-choice voting in the United States, which he has said would have prevented the 2022 U.S. Senate election in Georgia from going to a run-off by allowing voters to rank their preferred candidates when they voted the first time. He has also stated that ranked-choice voting would save millions of taxpayer dollars by allowing run-offs to be instant, while ensuring that winning candidates always get above 50% of the vote.

Gun rights
During a 2022 debate with Warnock, Oliver expressed his support for gun rights, stating: "Armed gays are harder to oppress, and they're harder to bash."

War on drugs
Oliver advocates for ending the war on drugs, and supports the legalization of marijuana.

Police reform
Oliver supports ending qualified immunity for law enforcement at the federal level.

Immigration
Oliver supports an "Ellis Island-style immigration" system, stating: "If you're coming here to work and be peaceful, it's not my business."

Education
Oliver supports abolishing the United States Department of Education, and advocates "for more choice in the education marketplace on a state-by-state basis".

Homelessness
Oliver supports removing regulatory barriers that prevent people and organizations from feeding people experiencing homelessness.

Third-parties
Oliver was a contributing author in the September 23, 2023 article "Do Third Parties Help or Harm Democracy?", published by the nonprofit news organization Divided We Fall. In the article, Oliver discussed the strategic position the Libertarian Party holds for the 2024 election season, third-party ballot access, and how the Libertarian Party platform parallels important issues of other third-party platforms, namely the Green Party of the United States and Forward Party (United States), such as ranked choice voting, immigration, cannabis legalization, and LGBTQ+ rights.

Quick answer:’they want you stupid so they can pick your pockets


Prime example: Trump supporters are some of the poorest. Notice the red states education rankings
