[Categories: VOTING, POLITICS, CONSERVATISM.]
[Following is an email received from a California friend, critical thinker, and frustrated voter. Feel free to reblog or email his message as you see fit.]
I have had an increasing sense that the Republican Party has moved dramatically left in my lifetime.
They have become a Party that in fact (not rhetoric) supports big government spending, taxes and controls.
Because I am a registered Republican, the Republicans know they have my vote
in any election no matter what they do–
because Voting Democratic is not an option.
In order for my vote to have more influence on the Republican and Democratic parties,
I am re-registering as Libertarian.
The Libertarian Party stands for a smaller, less intrusive government with lower taxes and more freedom.
When it is time to vote, I will still vote Republican.
My registering Libertarian is to send a clear message to all the political parties that
I want a smaller, less intrusive government.
If both parties see increasing registration for the Libertarian Party,
they will know they need to appeal to voters in favor of smaller government,
in order to be elected.
If you would like your vote to have influence, the USPS has change of voter registration forms.
If you agree with this concept of how to make our politicians more responsive,
please forward this to to your address book members.
If not, please reflect on the old adage:
Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again and expecting different results.
It is time to take action.
I am Taxed Enough Already
