A Journey From IT to Freedom

Straight Libertarian

Posted by IT Pilgrim on October 31, 2008

Looks like for the first time, the Libertarian party has made it into the straight ballot category. For the first time, they have a candidate in almost every single race. I was looking for my absentee ballot form and ran across the sample ballot for this year. There is now an option to vote straight party libertarian. Now, while I don’t like the laziness it allows, on the other hand, I do like the implication of equality.

Its sad that Bob Barr didn’t make it into any of the debates. I personally think the candidates were scared, which they should be, but that is still no excuse for the kind of two party debates we are stuck with. They like to make it seem like they are the only two parties in existence, which is far from the truth. The party also does not have the kind of advertising budget that say, the Obama camp has, but who does?

I like to think that its a sign that people are tired of the same ole big two and their messes. Small steps my friends.
