I am 18 and I am running for President of the United States of America. People often tell me “Peyton, there’s literally no way you can win.” People were saying the same thing about Donald Trump in 2016.
Washington is broken. Politicians are taking money from lobbyists and voting against the American people. Both the Democrats and Republicans are corrupt. So why keep voting Democrat or Republican to change the system? I am an outsider. I have never stepped foot in Washington before and I’m not going to feed you a bunch of bullshit. I’m going to be honest with you.
Our infrastructure is crumbling. Cuba has a better healthcare system than us. Teachers are going on strike and students aren’t going to college because of debt. And while all of this is going on, we’re spending over $700 billion on our military (more than the next 10 countries combined, including China and Russia) and lowering taxes on the rich because somehow it will apparently benefit all of us. Just like you, I’m fed up. It’s time for change. Which is why I am running for House of Representatives in 2018 and President of the United States in 2020.
