Default Is a Libertarian running for an office in your area?

Check out the Libertarian website to see if you have a Libertarian candidate running in your area.

http://www.lp.org/

How many times do people have to vote for the two major parties before they realize there is no difference?

It took both parties to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement - NAFTA

It took both parties to pass the banking bailout scam.

It took both parties to pass the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade - GATT.

It is taking both parties to continue this war in Iraq.

It took both parties to establish the income tax

It took both parties to send millions of our jobs to China, Taiwan and India.

It has taken both parties to increase our taxes to where they are today?

Do you realize that the average American spends about 1/2 of their income on taxes?
1. Social Security
2. Medicare / Mediciad
3. Income Tax - both at the state and federal levels..
4. Property Tax
5. Sales Tax
6. Fuel Tax on Gasoline
7. FCC charges on your cable TV bill
8. FCC charges on your phone bill

Both parties have allowed millions of illegal immigrants to flood our social services programs.

Both parties have allowed millions of illegal immigrants to stay in the USA taking jobs from people who need them.

Both parties have allowed chemical plants to pollute our rivers, lakes and streams.

And you really think that McCain or Obama is going to change anything? I heard these same exact lies in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and now in 2008. How much enough?

If you want real change, the 2 major parties will have to be removed from office. And the only way to do that is to vote for a real party, a party with real answers to real problems.

Vote for the Libertarian candidate running in your area - http://www.lp.org/states

I just mailed in my ballot. Except for President, there were no third parties for any office. Amazingly, at least 6 of the positions (lesser elected offices, not legislators or anything) the candidate ran unopposed.

ETA: D'oH! That's because we have a "Top Two" primary system in this state.

That means the republican and democratic parties have taken control of your states election system.

The LP may be the lesser of three evils, but I cannot vote for a party that supports [an outlawed topic]. I'm sticking with the CP for now.

They don't support [the outlaw topic]. They just think it's not their choice to decide what people do. That is in no way the proper role of the government. I sincerely believe they are right.

Beat you to it Kev. Early voting in Texas got my ballot, a party vote for the Libertarian party, in day before yesterday.

I work at a collage radio station that can not endorse anyone, so I am glad to see you here pushing the LP. Thanx!

It's been Republicrats for years, and I am so sick of hearing the "wasting your vote" argument. A vote is only wasted if it isn't cast, or cast for someone who doesn't share your views.

The Libertarians around here are either found behind a rock, in a cave, or on an island all by themselves.

Vote for them?

The Libertarians are not even on the ticket in Louisiana.
But you may be surprised to see who is on our ballot:

Quote:
Presidential Electors

Democratic Party, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Democrat
Green Party, Cynthia McKinney,Rosa Clemente, Green
Republican Party, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Republican
Constitution Party, Chuck Baldwin, Darrell Castle, Other
Independent, Ralph Nader, Matt Gonzalez, Other
Louisiana Taxpayers Party, "Ron" Paul,Barry Goldwater,Jr., Other
Prohibition, Gene Amondson, Leroy Pletten, Other
Socialism and Liberation, Gloria La Riva, Eugene Puryear, Other
Socialist Workers Party, James Harris, Alyson Kennedy, Other
The only other state Ron Paul is listed on the ballot is Montana.
It's my understanding that the Libertarians were too late getting their paperwork filed and missed their opportunity to be on the ballot.

I early voted today.

For President... Chuck Baldwin/Darrell Castle

Kev, you'll be happy to know that for everything else, if there was an LP option, I took it. If it was between Rep or Dem I took Rep. And for the positions with only a Dem 'option', I shook my head and cursed my idiotically leftist demographic.

Always have been a republican, woke up to the fact that their is virtualy no difference between the two parties. There both heading our nation down the path of socialism and loss of liberty. I will vote for liberty every time and will no longer vote for the lesser of two evils. Ron paul made a lot of sense, and he endorses chuck baldwin. Does chuck stand a chance? No. But we need to start now to break this two party monopoly.

Thumbs up

My uncle did a write in for Ron Paul in my state of Washington.

I plan to do the same.
Libertarian, or Constitution Party in other races where I can, then Repubs.

My plan of attack after election is to give my reps hell, in the next two years, constantly harping on their every spending proposals, and driving home that they need to cut waste and spending drastically to spur growth.

I am even demanding they take pay cuts in their salaries.
