“[…]an increasingly intrusive Nanny State is watching over our nation, meddling in the lives of its citizens. New measures, often rushed through legislatures and regulatory agencies with little consideration or thought, seek to control ever more aspects of people’s lives. Government limits individual actions and choices, from the way in which we educate our children to the food that we eat, from the type of light bulbs that illuminate our living rooms to the benefits that we receive for working. It is time to again trust individuals to make their own decisions. At the core of libertarianism is a trust in and respect for the personal choices of every individual. All Americans should be free to decide what is best for themselves and their families. At the same time, they must bear personal responsibility for the consequences of the decisions that they make, whether those decisions prove to be good or bad.”

And you can go ahead and tell me that I’m throwing my vote away. I don’t care. I’m no longer going to vote for the status quo, and I’m not putting up with any more shenanigans from the Republican Party as they continue on their quest of abandoning every principle of liberty for the sake of winning.
I want liberty for America, so I’m voting for Bob Barr.
