Former Texas Congressman, Ron Paul on Monday said Jill Stein the Green Party candidate is preferable to Gary Johnson of the Libertarian party.
He said, “I said if the independents, who don’t know what to do and who should they pick, I say if you tend to lean towards progressivism and liberalism and you’re interested in expressing yourself, you can vote for the Green Party. I think she’s probably best on foreign policy at the moment. But on Gary Johnson, he does not come across with a crisp libertarian message,” he said on MSNBC.
Ron Paul was the Libertarian Party nominee for president in 1988 and he emphasized the fact that he has not endorsed anyone between Gary and Jill. “I have not told any supporters who are interested for whom they should vote,” he added.
He also went further to explain that he does not think third party candidates will make any impact on the elections as he said those who will not be voting for the Republicans or for the Democrats will be very small in number. He said, “I think that when push comes to shove and the election comes up, those people who won’t be voting Republican or Democrat are going to be very small.”
