Allan Bartlett's 2016 General Election Recommendations/Voting Guide

Feel free to share these recommendations with as many friends & family and on your social media. I make these decisions with the thinking of how supporting or rejecting any candidate/ballot measure will ensure the greatest amount of personal and economic liberty. I am a lifelong Republican, but political party is secondary to me. If you want more background/color on any recommendation, just email me or leave a comment and we can discuss it. I will start at the top and work my way down the list as they are listed on my sample ballot.

President...Gary Johnson(L)

I will cut right to the chase. Hillary Clinton will win CA by at least 20 points. Had our state been more competitive, I would hold my nose and recommend that you vote for Donald Trump, but there's no question Hillary will win our state's Electoral Votes. I'm not exactly enamored to throw a vote to Gary Johnson, but he is the least bad option here. I wish the President had so little power that it wouldn't matter who held the office.

United States Senator...leave blank

The choice between truly evil and truly stupid is easy. Leave this blank. There are those who say truly stupid(Loretta Sanchez) is more moderate, but you shouldn't believe that. This is Prop 14(Open Primary Law) at its absolute worst.
