Consider alternative to Trump or Clinton

Consider alternative to Trump or Clinton

 

 

I’ve always wanted to help people toward greater understanding and truth, and at present there is a deep lack of understanding regarding the presidential campaign.

Most people think we have to settle for the lesser of two evils by settling for one of the two major party nominees.

The truth is we don’t have to settle, and there is a way that we can preclude both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton from gaining the 270 electoral votes needed to secure the presidency.

With our votes for another worthy candidate, Evan McMullin, the people of the United States can achieve this, and McMullin could be selected by the House of Representatives to be the next president of the United States.

For this to happen would require “the perfect storm.” It would require a miracle.  However, it is possible, especially in this day of digital media and other electronic communication.

Just doing the math, if Evan tells 10 new people about his campaign, and each of them tell 10 new people, and this is repeated for just nine iterations, then 1 billion new people would know about his campaign.

In another scenario, if only three people told three new people and this was repeated 20 times, then about 3.5 billion people would learn about Evan McMullin.  That is about 10 times as many people as live in the United States.

The point is, and particularly for the naysayers, it is not too late, and it is never too late to do the right thing. The people of the United States could very easily be introduced to this new candidate and a new option within a matter of days.

Many of the naysayers think that a vote for a conservative independent candidate is a vote for Hillary Clinton. Yet, by voting for Trump, Utah’s heart and voice will not be heard.  Plus, if we do the math above, if we stop waffling, stop acting in fear, get off our butts, get the word out and give the American people the opportunity to know that there is another option, then a vote for Evan McMullin will be a vote for Evan McMullin and the worthy principles that he stands for.

It all starts with faith and trust.  And it starts here in Utah and in Sanpete.  It’s not about coercing a vote for Evan. It’s simply about getting the word out that he represents good principles and a viable option for the American people and their representatives.

We’ve got to trust the American people to vote their conscience, and we all have to get more active in the political process. It will take a perfect storm, but here in Sanpete we are used to praying for and qualifying for storms.

Check out Evan’s campaign website at evanmcmullin.com and his Facebook page at mcmullinforpresident. Then come to a rally September 23 at 7 p.m. in Founders Hall in the Noyes  Building on the Snow College campus. Please RSVP to David E. Allred at 435-813-2055
