While Donald Trump indulges in fries and a big Mac to celebrate beating 16 Republican candidates and effectively winning his party’s nomination, another party is huddling to plan a new threat.

Over Memorial Day weekend, the Libertarian Party will be holding its convention in Orlando to put forth its presidential and vice presidential candidates. The party has largely been ignored in previous cycles, but party leaders are hoping that this year might be different.

Libertarians are trying to appeal to voters disenchanted with the prospect of a Trump or Hillary Clinton presidency. The party is banking on the fact that Trump and Clinton have the highest unfavorability ratings of any candidate -- on either side of the aisle -- in recent history.

Well, they certainly have my vote again this year. The best sound bite to come out of the convention so far was from a speaker who said this:

"I am dreaming of a day when gay married couples can protect their marijuana fields with machine guns".

Pretty much sums them up, and I like the math. Count me in.

I am with you on the gay guys, if marriage per se no longer brings any financial consequences by the government.

Maybe I just missed it on the front page of NYT, but they nominated Gary Johnson again. That's good.

Russia Today had the nomination story on its front page.
