Dear Editor,

The current presidential campaign has presented us with two "deplorable" candidates. Each is a septuagenarian with enough corrupt, dishonest and immoral behavior in their resumes to keep the tabloids in material for years. Its been said and I believe it's true, that voters are going to choose one based on a distaste for the other. There is a principled alternative. Evan McMullin is an independent candidate touting liberty, freedom and constitutional government at every opportunity and he has reasoned positions on the major issues. Evan has chosen as his running mate, Mindy Finn. You've probably never heard of them but their resumes are easy enough to find. Their goal is to usher in a new era of conservative leadership based on basic moral principles, something neither Clinton nor Trump can offer. This is a movement and these two dynamic, young people have the moral fiber to lead our country. They present an opportunity to vote FOR someone, not against. If they can win one state and prevent the Clinton/Trump malaise from getting 270 electoral votes, they could win, after a house vote. It has happened before. Wouldn't that be GREAT?
