Libertarians urge “no” vote on $1.9 trillion Waxman-Markey tax hike
Pelosi hopes to rush tax hike to a vote this week
WASHINGTON – America’s third largest party urged the U.S. House Tuesday to defeat plans for a $1.9 trillion energy tax hike over eight years. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is attempting to rush H.R. 2454, the Waxman-Markey energy tax bill, to a vote this week.
While Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Bob Barr continues to dominate the media as the leading alternative to Senators Barack Obama and John McCain, other Libertarian candidates across the nation have been getting the nod from local and state media outlets. The following are endorsements and positive mentions of Libertarians running for public office.
AdWeek.com describes a new ad released on August 29:
"Funded by Alternative PAC, a Johnson supporter, the five-minute video promotes a movement called Balanced Rebellion, which...aims to match voters one-to-one with others who are disappointed in the major-party choices for leader of the free world..."
"[The] political ad starring 'Dead Abe Lincoln' [tells] voters they 'just got screwed' by the two-party system.
"Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s campaign is spending nearly $1 million on advertising in four battleground states, plus Oregon, Utah and his home state of New Mexico, as part of a new advertising blitz.
Perhaps you can provide details about why you've chosen to exclude from your forum only one of the three candidates for President who will be on every American's ballot. I didn't see those details in any of your announcements.
The Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson, is very popular with veterans and it is shameful for your organization to seemingly randomly deny the veterans you purport to serve the opportunity to hear from all of their choices for Commander-in-Chief.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
