As you might know, today is the 278th birthday of George Washington. I expect you agree that Washington had an excellent attitude about the office of the presidency (he had a pretty humble view of that office) and about government in general.
When I look at our current president, his policies and ambitions, I am of course very saddened by how far our country has descended from Washington's vision.
Here are a few quotes attributed to George Washington:
Alex Snitker, the Libertarian Party's candidate for Florida's U.S. Senate seat, recently got second place in a large straw poll at a local tea party event. Snitker was able to give a speech, as well as make a TV appearance on the local news channel (http://www.wftv.com/news/22559424/detail.html).

Libertarians criticize CPAC conservatives
WASHINGTON - As the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) holds its annual conference, Libertarian Party Executive Director Wes Benedict offered the following statement:
I'm sure we'll hear an awful lot about "limited government" from the mouths of CPAC politicians over the next few days. If I had a nickel every time a conservative said "limited government" and didn't mean it, I'd be a very rich man.
Oklahoma is known for having some of the most difficult ballot access laws in the U.S. Angelia O'Dell, chair of the Oklahoma Libertarian Party, also chairs Oklahomans for Ballot Access Reform (OBAR), a coalition trying to lower Oklahoma's extremely high ballot access hurdles.
Below, Oklahoma City's KFOR-TV covered several Libertarians at a recent OBAR protest at the state capitol.
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.
