WASHINGTON - With prospects of a Republican takeover of Congress, Libertarian Party (LP) Chair Mark Hinkle posed this question: "In order to balance the budget, where will the GOP pull the plug first: on Granny, or on foreign wars?"
Hinkle continued, "Of course, Republicans may have no serious intention of cutting federal deficits or spending, and their complaints about 'out-of-control spending' might be hypocrisy."
This week I'm forwarding you a message from Nick Youngers, founder of the Libertarian Donors Club:

My Fellow Excited Libertarians,
In my first two letters I promised I'd be back with an updated list of exciting, important, Libertarian races for 2010. We have found nine more races to add to our original list of four - they are listed below.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has endorsed Libertarian Matthew Cantrell for Ohio treasurer. The paper sums up its endorsement by writing, "[Democrat] Boyce and [Republican] Mandel have proven to have feet of clay. Cantrell, by contrast, has a spring in his step and the credentials to do the job. He's worthy of your vote on Nov. 2."
The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) claims on its website that "The NRA-PVF ranks political candidates - irrespective of party affiliation - based on voting records, public statements and their responses to an NRA-PVF questionnaire."
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.
