‘Let America become Sweden’s fourth state’: An unlikely third-party run

If you’re finding yourself unhappy about the democratic and republican candidates in today’s U.S. presidential election and want to support an outsider, maybe the Swedish Party is for you.

The totally fictional Swedish Party promises to transform the United States into a larger, warmer version of Sweden. Its presidential candidate, Johan (no last name), wants to give you universal health care, free education, neutral foreign policy, and two additional years to life expectancy. His campaign platform is built on “the individual freedom at the heart of the American dream, put into practice by the Swedish Party via the Swedish model.”
