Letter to the Editor:
Regardless of the number of candidates on the ballot this Nov. 6, we really have just two choices. We can choose limited government, or we can choose unlimited government. While the GOP and the Democrats might have some minor differences in tax redistribution, both believe that the government has a pre-existing claim to our wages and property. They might place a temporary limit on the amount the government can take, and they might agree to cut spending on a program or two during an economic downturn, but in the final analysis, after the campaign rhetoric is over, both parties still agree that the government should have the ability to decide how much control it has over our lives.
The fact that most of us can’t name three things the government doesn’t tax or regulate isn’t the result of just one of those parties being in charge. It’s the result of both parties increasing the scope and cost of government for the last 150 years. If we are truly honest with ourselves, we probably know neither party has any intention of miraculously changing after this election.
On the other hand, the Libertarian Party wants to restore limits to government. Limits on local government, limits on state government, and limits on the federal government.
Lots of candidates, lots of issues, but only two real choices. Limited government, or unlimited government. If you want a limited government, sooner or later you’re going to have to vote for it.
Hopefully sooner than later.
