Libertarians Offer Attractive Alternative for
I believe [Atlanta Journal-Constitution editor] Jay Bookman is
absolutely correct that large numbers of fiscal conservatives and
libertarian-leaning voters are appalled by the scandals and the
insane spending of the Republican party, both in Georgia and
nationally. He might have added that the ongoing Republican assault
on our fundamental civil liberties has become intolerable to many of
those same voters.
Bookman predicts such voters might just sit out this election. I
have a far better suggestion for them. Why not vote Libertarian this
The Libertarian Party will be running candidates for governor,
lieutenant governor and other statewide races. These candidates are
solidly committed to cutting government spending, reducing taxes,
and protecting our precious Bill of Rights freedoms. This year more
than ever, Libertarians deserve the serious attention of
disenchanted Georgia voters.
A big increase in votes for Libertarians this year will send a
powerful message to both of the two older parties -- straighten up,
or get ready to start losing elections.
