2020 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Vermin Supreme sent out the following press release this morning.
The Future is Love
Good morning! Today let’s address what’s happening in our world and our path towards the future.
Twenty-four hours ago, Senator Bernie Sanders endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States. For many of his supporters, this evokes mixed emotions; shock, dismay, and betrayal among them.
While we may not agree with all of Senator Sanders’ ideas, we certainly believe in the energy and legitimacy of his movement. These people are passionate about making positive change in their communities and in America, and this is something we as Libertarians absolutely believe in too. We share their disillusionment with business as usual, and are also disappointment by Sanders’ no-concessions-asked endorsement of an establishment candidate of the duopoly. We are left with two corporate party candidates who have – for years – manipulated people for personal gain, instituted harmful policy and practices against minorities, and exhibited inappropriate behavior towards women.
Right now people are suffering and, as always, the marginalized communities are bearing the brunt of a global pandemic. All of our daily lives have been rocked to their foundations. People are stuck in their homes, have lost their jobs, and are faced with a death toll that rises every day. Homeless populations, communities of color, and poor populations without health insurance have been hit the hardest in this pandemic. These are the three communities who are experiencing the highest death rates – many American communities are being devastated.
We are afraid and hurting, however; in times of the greatest difficulties we rise together in a triumph of the human spirit. An opportunity has arisen from this crisis. Now we have a chance to show the world that compassion, love, and mutual aid are the golden standard for humanity and survival.
Candidate Supreme has this message to our friends from the Democrat Party:
I can imagine this must be a great disappointment to many.
It is my hope that you remain hopeful and continue to work for change.
I hope that you continue to question why things are the way they are and how they can be different.
Let me invite you to take a look at the Libertarian Party.
Read the platform at lp.org/platform.
You may be surprised with how much of it you may have agreement.
As for items with which may be points of disagreement I recommend reaching out to a libertarian to hear a libertarian perspective and possible solutions to societies shortcomings.
In any case I welcome the discussion.
I hope you will join us as we challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual. Our goal is nothing more nor less than a world set free in our lifetime,
You are always welcome into my campaign.”– Vermin Love SupremeIf you would like to take a pony ride with #TeamSupreme, please reach out!!!

We don’t have to go back to the old world.
Disruption leads to innovation and change.
Innovate now. Change Now. Disrupt Now.
Let us no longer carry the things that don’t serve us,
while we have this unprecedented moment in time.
