Because neither candidate represented me during the last national election, I joined the American Solidarity Party and voted for its presidential candidate. The members of both major political parties laughed at me – the Democrats stated I would help their candidate gain the White House and the Republicans told me I would be responsible for the horror of another (far worse) Clinton administration.
After the election, the Dems told me I was responsible for putting Trump in the White House and Repubs said I was not a true fiscal conservative because I had not supported Trump’s candidacy. Their logic bolstered my decision – I made the right choice to walk away from these two parties.
The American Solidarity Party represents true social justice rather than that which has caught the media fancy for the moment. It believes in fiscal responsibility and in the dignity of all human beings. It truly represents people like me who have been discarded by the other two parties.
For this reason, I am going to support Desmond Silveira, American Solidarity Party candidate for governor of California. Interested? Tired of being one of the herd?
