CGA Candidate Kent Johnson's view on Libertarian Voter Registration
In future elections the ONLY vote that counts is the Libertarian vote. Let me explain
What does it mean when you register to vote under Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian, or unaffiliated?
Unaffiliated voters are the largest voting block in Connecticut. There are 861,000 people are not registered to any party in Connecticut compared to 771,000 Democrats, 453,000 Republicans and 29,000 minor parties including Libertarian.
Party registration is important as you can see. Republicans are only 30,000 voters away from loosing major party status. The Rebuplican party keeps shrinking and if they loose 30,000 more voters they will officially be a minor party in Connecticut. By contrast if the Libertarian party reaches 20 percent we would become a major party. There are nearly 900,000 who have specifically chosen NOT to be part of the two party system in Connecticut, nearly half of all voters. It cannot be true that a third party is a spoiler when more people have chosen to be unaffiliated with either major party than those who are affiliated.
More people are disaffected, disenfranchised, disappointed and chose not to join the two parties of Big Government. Our two parties are run by people who use their partisanship to make their own position better. Our political system is a partisan system of people who want bigger government. But about half of all voters chose not to join them.
Donald Trump won the election by attracting the protest vote. Now even Big Government partisans are seeing Trump for what he is, for the good he is doing and the bad he is doing. And there remains a large independent and unaffiliated voter block dissatisfied with government today.
When someone says a third part can't win remember the largest voting block doesn't belong to the two-party system. Note that 45% of all voters are unaffiliated or members of minor parties. There are more unaffiliated voters than in either of the Big Government parties. In some states anyone can vote in any primary, all primaries or only one primary.
In some states anyone can vote in any primary, all primaries or only one primary. In Connecticut the legislature has decided on this exclusionary plan. Big Government parties worked together to exclude 900,000 voters from the process. This is called “bi-partisan” or “cooperation” or something that does not instill in you the very real idea that these people are working together very hard to make government bigger, to increase their own paychecks and that of all the people working with them.

There are two boxes on your registration form, Democrat or Republican. Check one of these boxes to become able to vote in the Democrat or Republican primaries. Obviously these parties take care of their own. They have the power so they will allow each other privilege to exclude anyone who did not choose a Big Government party and instead chose to be unaffiliated or Libertarian.
You don't have to vote for either of the Big Government parties in the general election. Other parties like Libertarian or independent you have to write in. The reason the Third Party, the Libertarian Party is excluded is because the two Big Government parties, the two partisan groups that exclude anyone who doesn’t want to join them, have decided it should be this way. Presumably they have thought this out in a bi-partisan manner and have decided this is what is best for the country. It is also possible they decided it was best for them, not the country, but we can’t know that for sure.
What we do know is that the protest vote is the deciding factor in the next election. Republicans want the protest vote and will work for it by saying they want smaller government and freedom, and less regulation and praise all the good people in their districts and all the hard work we all do to make this country great. Democrats will do the exact same thing.
All candidates in an election sound like Libertarians. But as soon as they are re-elected they do exactly what they were doing before, and tell everyone they were re-elected based on their partisan Big Government positions they took in the past. But no. They were elected because they promised change. They promised NOT to continue with the same partisan Big Government positions they always had.
ONLY the Libertarians can bring the things all politicians promise. We are the ONLY ones who and bring smaller government and freedom, and less regulation and lower taxes for all the good people in our districts who work hard and make this country great. Even if the Libertarian doesn’t win against the Big Government candidate of whatever party, the vote for the Libertarian counted. It was a vote against Big Government and I guarantee you Big Government sees is the votes. Perhaps votes are the ONLY thing Big Government sees. But the only vote for change is the vote for a Libertarian. So if your registered as unafilliated consider changing to Libertarian or another minor party and send a message before election day,that you don't beleive in the lessor of two evils, and you truly want change.
The Third Political Party in Connecticut is growing, and Big Government Republicrats and Demoplicans are worried.
