Why I’m Dropping Everything to Manage John McAfee’s Presidential Campaign
Effective Monday, April 18, I am honored to accept a position as campaign manager for John McAfee’s 2016 libertarian presidential campaign. I’m placing my life on hiatus to work 20 hours per day and 7 days per week to ensure that John McAfee is nominated to be the Libertarian candidate.
Why is this so important to me? It’s because he is the only candidate seeking the nomination that can actually win the general election and secure the White House.
Nearly everyone in the tech industry and most people in the world at large know John McAfee. They already recognize his name as a world-famous computer scientist, activist, hacktivist, and the developer of the first commercial anti-virus program. They already know that he spent two decades as a programmer for NASA, Univac, and Xerox, and Lockheed Martin before starting his own company, and in the process spawning a multi-billion dollar industry. And they definitely know that since retirement, he’s traveled the world and spent time battling banana republics, building on-the-job up-close-and-personal experience fighting corrupt governments.
Easily the most interesting candidate for any office in the world, McAfee is truly an American original and a passionate defender of human freedom.
I also have great respect for Gary Johnson. I’ve voted for him, supported him, and encouraged others to do the same in the past. If I thought he could win I would probably be supporting him again. But he can’t. And more than that, we’ve found someone who can. Between McAfee and Johnson, there is no question that if anyone can dance circles around Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it is John McAfee.
Our campaign is entering a critical period, and will be adopting an aggressive strategy for securing the nomination. In executing on this strategy, we will at the same time be sharing and communicating our bold vision for the future of the Libertarian Party, our country’s largest third party. 2016 is not just an opportunity to win the White House. It is an opportunity to seize our seat at the table and bring meaningful representation to the philosophies and principles we hold dear.
