"Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin should read the platform of their own party before making a plan to deal with this most recent financial crisis," says Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party nominee for president. 

"The GOP platform clearly states that it is opposed to government bailouts and market regulation," explains Barr.  "However, McCain and Palin are in favor of the bailouts if they come with market regulation.  Apparently, being a 'maverick' means favoring 'big government.'"
