I have always been vocal about wanting to see America elect it’s first-ever female President, and this time we may have a shot with the Libertarian candidate, Jo Jorgensen.
In a voting poll we started on our Facebook page, The North Carolina Beat, more than 10,000 people voted for who they would elect as president in November between Jo Jorgensen and Donald Trump.
Well, let’s just say Trump lost…because with over 10,000 votes, Jorgensen is leading with 86% and Trump with 14% of the votes.

FYI… Joe Biden lost to Trump in our poll. He doesn’t stand a chance with Jo Jorgensen, neither of them.
With just four months away from the general election in November, many of you voters may be unfamiliar with Jo Jorgensen who is in the ring with two monsters.
In May of this year, Jorgensen was chosen as the first woman to lead the Libertarian party presidential ticket along with her running mate, Jeremy “Spike” Cohen.
Jorgensen believes the government should be smaller, and the people should be able to have FREEDOM. She says both Democratic and Republican policies have created trillion-dollar deficits and unnecessary involvement in costly wars.
Jo Jorgensen’s presidential campaign is a way different choice from Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Both the Republican party and Democratic party have given the country high health costs, high improvement rates, a broken retirement system, and an endless immigration problem, according to Jorgensen.
Big government mandates and programs created these problems, Jorgensen said. To solve them, we need to make government smaller – much, much smaller.
HERE’S WHERE JORGENSEN STAND ON SOME RECENT ISSUES:
In an interview with NPR, Jorgensen said she was critical of the feds response to the coronavirus.
Jorgensen said the Libertarian administration wouldn’t have put everybody under house arrest.
We believe in individual freedom and that people should be able to go about their lives as they choose, she said.
Although governors and mayors didn’t consider their stay-at-home orders “house arrest.” Jorgensen told NPR host Scott Simon that it “felt like it” to the people staying at home.
It would be considered wise to stay home amid a pandemic, but the government shouldn’t mandate it. Rather, it should be an individual choice, Jorgensen said.
Jorgensen said during a survey a few months ago when they asked people should the economy reopen, 60 to 80% of the people said no, it’s too soon. She said that just shows that people have enough common sense to stay home without the government telling them to.
Jorgensen has also been very critical of the immigration system in America. She says the U.S. should not be building a wall along the southern border or separate children from parents who illegally enter the country. But she does support deporting illegal immigrants who commit serious crimes.
On her campaign website, Jorgensen said the freedom to trade and travel is fundamental to human liberty.
As President, I will use my Constitutional authority to eliminate trade barriers & tariffs, and work to repeal arbitrary quotas on the number of people who can legally enter the United States to work, visit, or reside, she said.
Jorgensen said there are underlying reasons as to why the United States healthcare is so expensive. She says it is because of the Republican and Democratic policy decisions over the last 50 years.
According to Jorgensen, both parties spend entirely too much time disagreeing on whether private insurance companies or government bureaucrats should manage healthcare decisions. But Jorgensen says those policies are the “exact opposite” of what should be done.
We can reduce the cost of health care 75% by allowing real price competition, and by substantially reducing government and insurance company paperwork, Jorgensen said. This will make health care affordable for most Americans, while also reducing the cost of legacy programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA.
Jorgensen’s campaign website talks about her opposition to additional restrictions for purchasing a gun. She also opposes allowing the victim of gun violence to sue firearm dealers and manufacturers.
The Libertarian candidate also believes that the people should be able to own any gun the government owns.
Among other issues that Jorgensen stands firm on, her party believes the government should just defend the people’s rights and let them pursue their own interests.
Jorgensen wants to:
- Pardon all non-violent offenders of victimless crimes
- Repeal all laws for victimless crimes
- End qualified immunity for law enforcement
- End the failed war on drugs
- End militarization of police
- End civil asset forfeiture
- End mandatory minimum sentencing
- End ATF
- Balance the budget
- Bring our troops home
- Allow doctors and their patients to decide medical decisions
- End fossil fuel subsidies
- Replace social security
- Allow free trade
- Return education to teachers, parents, and students
To sum it all up, with Jorgensen in office, you will take control of your own life.
Jorgensen is on ballots in 36 states but soon will be on all 50. Hopefully, in the next presidential debate, she will be included.
