Libertarian Party Nominates Pro-Trans Activist for President

The Libertarian Party has officially rejected former Republican President Donald Trump and Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., selecting activist Chase Oliver, a former democrat, as their presidential nominee. The decision was announced following the party’s national convention, where both Trump and Kennedy had addressed attendees, seeking Libertarian support.

Oliver secured the nomination in the seventh round of voting, receiving nearly 60 percent of the vote, as reported by Fox News Digital. “I will continue to bring a hopeful and positive message of liberty to both those who consider themselves libertarian and those who don’t know they are libertarian yet,” Oliver stated in his victory speech.

Oliver has faced criticism for his stance on transgender issues, which he addressed in an interview with the Daily Caller. “As with any medical issue, I support autonomy from the government in making personal decisions. I prefer individuals decide the healthcare that is right for them in consultation with a doctor if they so choose, and not leave those decisions to boards of bureaucrats or the politicians who enable them,” he explained.

Oliver’s platform includes ending U.S. involvement in foreign wars, adopting an Ellis Island approach to immigration, repealing gun control laws, abolishing the Patriot Act and the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, and reducing government intervention in the economy to foster a robust free market, according to his campaign website.
