JK: I think our bipolar political system is broken and I do like the third party candidates. My own personal ideology is pretty close to the Green, Jill Stein's. She's been kind to me, and she said recently that if she were elected President, she would pardon me and bring me into her administration. I like the Libertarian Gary Johnson very much, too. Gary wrote to me in prison, he asked the Attorney General to release me early, and he, too, said that he would pardon me and ask me to join his administration.
Our problem is that the two major parties have a stranglehold on politics. Just look at the debates. Whatever happened to the League of Women Voters? Now we have this "bipartisan" Commission on Presidential Debates, the job of which is to keep everybody else out. If this Commission had been in charge in the past, there would not have been a Ralph Nader, Ross Perot, or John Anderson. It's anti-democratic and it should go.
JB: Agreed. Have you decided yet: will you watch the debates or boycott them?
JK: I so dislike both Trump and Clinton that I don't think I can force myself through a debate.
JB: Any final thoughts before we wrap this up?
JK: I want potential whistleblowers to know that you will not be alone. So many Americans will support what you do. You may feel isolated, unappreciated, even targeted. But you are not alone. Hire an attorney and fight.
JB: Thanks so much for talking with me, John. It was an honor. Best of luck to you!
