Hold up, folks, the race for president isn’t settled quite yet. It might be a little late, but former Republican Rep. Justin Amash is eyeing the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party. It’s actually something we’d expected to happen quite a few months ago, but now … it’s happening.
Today, I launched an exploratory committee to seek the @LPNational’s nomination for president of the United States. Americans are ready for practical approaches based in humility and trust of the people.

We’re ready for a presidency that will restore respect for our Constitution and bring people together. I’m excited and honored to be taking these first steps toward serving Americans of every background as president.
— Justin Amash (@justinamash) April 29, 2020
At least one person is excited.
No. Just no. Come back in 2024

Dude, just support Biden vs. Trump. The last thing we need is more people muddying the waters. You can't win, you're going to take funding? YOU? after all the nonsense you say?

China going to have to split their funding between you and Biden now?

I want my donation money back… This doesn't serve anyone in this election cycle, except your ego.

Snap out of it, Justin. In our binary system any vote not cast for Biden is effectively a vote for Trump. You enabled his reign of terror long enough as a participant in the GOP conspiracy against America. You've done enough and this isn't about you. Please sit down and be quiet.

Dear Justin: you would not even win Michigan.

There is no way you are going to pull Trump votes. And in that dynamic, you don’t want to be this year’s Jill Stein.
I donated to your Congressional campaign. Please don’t do this.

I want my money back that I donated to you. This is horrible. This isn’t the year for this. Jesus Christ….?

This is a terrible idea.

We could understand the fear Biden supporters have that Amash would siphon crucial votes away from Biden, but how many votes are we talking about here? It’s Justin Amash.
Everyone commenting here not understanding he is more likely to take votes AWAY from Trump
— No1 Phil Myers Fan (@swimfisher13) April 29, 2020
True … the Never Trump crowd really admires Amash for walking away from the Trump-led Republican Party; he’s closer to Evan McMullin than Gary Johnson.
You dislike Trump so much you are about to guarantee his second term. Well done.

Not a chance. You took a stand and then dropped every other ball tossed to you. I thought you were sincere, but your just another political player. Hard pass.

That’s a really dumb idea. Sorry.

Don't do this.

I thought you were smarter than that! I guess you can’t be trusted. You know full well that the third party is always a spoiler. I guess Trump must have paid you off! I thought of voting for you as representative, but now you’re dead to me.

The only reason I can think of as to why you’re doing this is to re-elect Trump.

Exploration over, it was a resounding no.

Let’s see where this goes, if anywhere.
