In less than four weeks, Americans will choose whom they wish to occupy the Oval Office for the next four years.
What are American voters to do?
Topping the choices are the two most disliked nominees in the history of American politics – Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. One or the other is expected to become the next President of the United States.
But what if the voters decide not to hand either candidate the crown?
It can be done.
What if rather than holding our noses and voting for the person we dislike less or throwing away our vote on either the Libertarian Gary Johnson, the Greens Jill Stein or the real long shot #NeverTrump Evan McMullin, the voters rebel and do as I suggested in last Saturday’s Cornfield Standings and write-in their own name or anyone’s name to be President?
What if by doing so, neither Trump nor Clinton has an Electoral College majority, throwing the election into the US House of Representatives to decide?
We could actually get a Mike Pence or Tim Kaine presidency.
We could get a Paul Ryan or Corey Booker presidency.
Americans would get a do-over and not be stuck with a choice between two people Americans do not want.
But do American voters have the courage to reject these candidates?
From the Cornfield, voters only hope this election cycle is to cast a ballot for anyone, but Clinton or Trump.
