I may be late to the party, but perhaps, I am right on time.
The election pundits that promote the preposterous choice of Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama are ignoring the most important point of this entire situation: neither of these fellows is worth our efforts or support, certainly not our votes.
I liked the ideas that President Obama espoused in his initial run for the nation’s highest office; however, when I went to hear him speak live on the campus of Texas State University in San Marcos, I realized this Democrat was just another politician, average in every way.
I didn’t like Mitt Romney the first time he tried and failed to get the Republican nomination, and I wish he had stayed home this time as well since he is the kind of politician (much like the Chicago fellow) who will say or do anything to get elected.
I do not agree with everything for which the Libertarians stand; however, neither have I ever agreed with all that the Democrats or Republicans profess. I base my support on this overriding policy, this “prime directive” if you will:
We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.
Furthermore, because the entrenched Republicans and Democrats are willing to follow anyone no matter their lack of principles or intellect, as long as they speak words that they clearly do not believe, I will vote for for all the Libertarians this time around and will continue to do so until something changes. I am now a Libertarian.
