With the US election dominated by the Democrat and Republican parties, in the political arena as well as in the media, it is easy to forget that other candidates are also running for President of the United-States. Here are four of them.
Virgil Goode – Constitution Party
Virigil Goode has been elected to the American Congress six times and was a member of the House of Representative from 1997 to 2009. He is running for president as candidate for the Constitution Party. This 66 year-old conservative says he is fighting for three different causes: defending marriage as a union between a man and a woman, declaring a moratorium on issuing immigration green cards, and limiting campaign donations to $200.
Jill Stein – Green Party
Jill Stein is a 62 year-old physician specialising in internal medicine and a fierce advocate for the environment. Running for president for the first time, she is the Green Party candidate. She campaigns for a “Green New Deal” and wants to bring solutions to the environment crisis. She spoke for marijuana legalisation during the last “small candidates” presidential debate in Chicago on October 23 against Rocky Anderson, Virgil Goode and Gary Johnson.
Rocky Anderson – Justice Party
Rocky Anderson used to be Democrat. He was Salt Lake City’s mayor from 2000 to 2008. At 61, he is running for the presidency as candidate and founder of the Justice Party. As a lawyer, he defends social, economic and environmental justice for all. He presents the Justice Party as a “political alternative” to the Democrat and Republican parties.
Gary Johnson – Libertarian Party
Gary Johnson, 59, is the official candidate for the Libertarian Party. He started his career young and quickly became a prosperous businessman in New Mexico. He was Governor of New Mexico from 1995 and 2003. In 2011 he announced himself as candidate in the Republican primaries but quit, encouraging his supporters to vote for Ron Paul. Gary Johnson is known as the “veto governor” because of the high number of times he used his gubernatorial veto. As a libertarian, he is in favour of limited government, free trade and strong individual freedom. He defends socially progressive views such as marijuana legalisation, contrary to Virgil Goode.
