4 years ago I was disappointed with the Independent and stopped reading because of the obvious bias. I decided that it was the same as other news of the day.
Today, a friend encouraged me to read it because the "Best" lists came out. I came across this article before I read the Best Lists. Articles like this, where the Independent shows how far from independent they really are, are the reasons that I don't read it. "For the record, we're not weighing in on candidates from outside the two major parties ..."
If you are the voice of someone who is independent then how would you leave out the people that are fighting against the status quo? The Democrats & the Republicans have had their chance. Look at what they have done with it. They have made their citizens more dependent, rather than independent. They both have taken away more of our freedoms than I can ever remember in my lifetime. Neither party is getting out of the way so that citizens can truly be independent. Our country is a twisted version of what was intended.
This election I will be casting my vote for 3rd party candidates, Gary Johnson for president. I will be voting my conscience, rather than the people the Main Stream Media, you included, tell me has a chance to win. There are 2 races on my ballot that I am still undecided on & have yet to finish my research. In those races I will vote for a candidate I can agree with. I will not 'hold my nose & vote' against someone I agree with more than the person I don't like. I'd rather skip the question. If more people voted like this our country could be very different.
