Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen on Saturday preached her small government policy platform to the residents of Madison as a challenge to establishment candidates President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden
Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen visited Madison on Saturday as part of her ‘Real Change for Real People’ campaign tour to promote her platform as a third party candidate
In a one-on-one interview with the Daily Cardinal ahead of his visit, Jorgensen highlighted the importance of Wisconsin for the 2020 election, drawing on lessons learned from 2016
« [Wisconsin] played an important role in the last election, and in the last election Democrats didn’t think Wisconsin was worth a visit, » Jorgensen said
After traveling the country, Jorgensen believes her small government’s approach will appeal to Wisconsinians and the rest of America Jorgensen said a major lesson she learned during the election campaign was that Americans « are fed up with the government making every decision in their lives »
Jorgensen explained that if she were to become president during the COVID-19 pandemic, she would remove FDA restrictions to allow more testing and faster vaccine development, and leave the decision to wear masks to individuals and companies
On job creation, Jorgensen stayed on the topic and argued for less government involvement.She also said she would seek free markets and a level playing field in the healthcare sectors and Energy
« I realize that money in business hands creates twice as many jobs as money in government hands, » Jorgensen said
Jorgensen went on to criticize her opponents.She rebuked Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s support for the 1994 Crime Bill and his previous opposition to gay marriage, and she questioned the lack of testing for the Trump administration in the early stages of the pandemic
While she disagrees with her opponents, Jorgensen acknowledged why the Americans supported them For Trump in particular, Jorgensen said she understood her supporters wanted an outsider, but she proclaimed herself as « the only real foreigner in this campaign »
Although no third-party presidential candidate has received more than 10% of the national vote since 1992, Jorgensen remains convinced that the younger Generation Z – a cohort she calls « iGen » – is calling on her platform politics and will end voting for her Jorgensen said young Americans recognize the diversity and differences in the United States and, like her, see social problems as « a live and let live situation »
In addition, Jorgensen proposed an immediate withdrawal from Social Security on the grounds that « Social Security will not wait [Gen Z] in 40 years »
« I am the only one who realizes the government is too big, too bossy, » Jorgensen said « And the worst part is that they usually end up hurting the people they are trying to help »
