I thought the ACLU was politically neutral? Why no attempt to ask for commitments from the other two national parties’ candidates, the Libertarians, and Greens? Their eventual Presidential candidates will be on the ballot in most or even all states in the general election, as they were in 2016. And you would certainly get commitments from them because both strongly support civil liberties and rights. Loren Drzal: They have their own primary processes for President, and are entitled to the state-held primary elections in some states. The Libertarians already have ballot access in nearly 40 states, and the Greens in over 20, and this number will go up as they both complete ballot access petitioning processes. So yes, they will have candidates on the ballot for President, and the ACLU, in the interest of both being non-partisan and in promoting civil liberties and rights, should also include at least some of the All I need today is a little bit of Chiefs and a whole lot of Jesus shirt in each in their efforts to get commitments from candidates. Joshua Hellmann, what you are saying is true about the ballots. However, I know of no primary process for their candidates. Who is running for those parties? How can the ACLU get statements from their candidates if they do not have candidates currently? I linked to their websites, a simple click will tell you, and the ACLU if they’re reading this, all you need to know. They have candidates already in their primaries. Just because the major media networks won’t cover them, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
