The 2016 Presidential Election is not just between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. I filled out my mail-in "Official Ballot for General Election Larimer County, Colorado" last night and there were 22 choices for President on the ballot. I am in the media and I have never heard of 75% of these people. How do they even end up on the ballot? It's absolutely ridiculous.

Here are your choices for President of the United States in 2016:

  • Hillary Clinton/Tim Kaine - Democratic
  • Donald J. Trump/Michael R. Pence - Republican
  • Darrell L. Castle/Scott N. Bradley - American Constitution
  • Gary Johnson/Bill Weld - Libertarian
  • Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka - Green
  • Frank Atwood/Blake Huber - Approval Voting
  • "Rocky" Roque De La Fuente/Michael Steinberg - American Delta
  • James Hedges/Bill Bayes - Prohibition
  • Tom Hoefling/Steve Schulin - America's
  • Chris Keniston/Deacon Taylor - Veterans of America
  • Alyson Kennedy/Osborne Hart - Socialist Workers
  • Kyle Kenley Kopitke/Nathan R. Sorenson - Independent American
  • Lawrence Kotlikoff/Edward Leamer - Kotlikoff for President
  • Gloria Estela La Riva/Dennis J. Banks - Socialism and Liberation
  • Bradford Lyttle/Hanna Walsh - Nonviolent Resistance/Pacifist
  • Joseph Allen Maldonado/Douglas K. Terranova - Independent People
  • Michael A. Maturen/Juan Munoz - American Solidarity
  • Evan McMullin/Nathan Johnson - Unaffiliated
  • Ryan Alan Scott/Bruce Kendall Barnard - Unaffiliated
  • Rod Silva/Richard C. Silva - Nutrition
  • Mike Smith/ Daniel White - Unaffiliated
  • Emidio Soltysik/Angela Nicole Walker - Socialist USA

Are you kidding me? Honestly, what a joke. I guess absolutely anyone can run for President now. Is this really what we want? What a waste!
