Lincoln Chafee on his decision to run for president as a Libertarian: 'Major parties have let us down'

by Yael Halon

Former Democratic presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee says he is running for the White House as a Libertarian because he believes "2020 is going to be the year where people look beyond the major parties."
Chafee told Fox News' Dave Anthony on Wednesday's "Fox News Rundown" podcast that "both parties" are responsible for the "$22 trillion deficit ... these endless wars and ... the compromising of our personal liberties, tapping of phones."
Unlike the Republican and Democratic parties, Chafee said libertarians are "good at keeping us out of these foreign entanglements."
"They're good on balanced budgets," he added. "They're good on letting people live their lives as they see fit ... It's a good party. They're open-minded. They don't believe that the government should be telling us what drugs we can take and can't take. So I'm proud to be a libertarian and bringing these issues to the American people."..
