To whom it may concern,
As I have aged I have paid more attention to what is going on in the world around me. I treasure the Constitution and the rights it gives us. Like many, I am disgusted with how my money is wasted on the federal, state and local level. Swine at the trough.
In my interest to take it back, I have shunned many Republican candidates in favor of Libertarians. I don't necessarily agree with everything on the Libertarian party platform, but had no problem throwing a disgust vote to the Libertarians if the candidate was decent. I even gave Ed Thompson some of my hard earned money since I believed in him. I was quite pleased that he got 11% of the vote in his run for the governorship of Wisconsin in 2002.
I have noticed in many races that Libertarian candidates have been, well, lame. Some have had zero qualifications, or advocate for some insane type of head in the sand foreign policy. At times I have had to go back to voting Republican simply because...I had to. And lets face it, the Dems need to lose at all costs. This fall, when the Dems sweep the House, Senate and Presidency we are all in for tough times. I am fully prepared for an assault on my pocketbook and my personal liberties. Good luck grabbing my guns to the Dems, that's all I am going to say about that.
A few days ago I took a look at our local candidates for Congress and who is on the Libertarian ticket? Probably one of the men I hate the most on the entire planet, Kevin Barrett. He preached his message of hate at the UW and spouts his bullsh1t 911 conspiracy theories all over the place. This man is vile and disgusting, and he is your candidate for my district for Congress. OBVIOUSLY I will be voting Republican this time around. Not only that, I will never give the Libertarian party one cent of my hard earned money ever again, nor will I ever vote for a Libertarian candidate ever again. Good luck with your usual 1% of votes. When you allow crackpots like Barrett in your party you are going to get all that you deserve. And you don't deserve me.
