For those that followed the campaign of Ron Paul, it became routine that any story about Paul or the campaign would soar to the top of Digg.com–one of the leading sites for news and information in the online community. Now, it appears Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president, may also be heading in that same direction.
In less than 24 hours after this article was posted to the Huffington Post, it became one of the top 10 stories on Digg.
This is an exciting development for the Barr campaign and the Libertarian Party because it indicates that Barr may be capitalizing on some of the same forces that made a Texas congressman, "Ron Paul."
Please Digg this article and any others from the LP or Barr so that we can continue to expand our online presence.
Quotes from Digg:
"Oh on the contrary Mr. Gingrich, we all know that a vote for Obama or McCain is a wasted vote on the status quo. A lot of us are going to prove that in November… If we would all just come out of our news media brainwashed slumber and voted for someone that isn’t part of the status quo that’s running this country, then and only then would we get real change." – ghendric
"Its the Republicans’ and Neocons’ fault that Bob Barr is doing so well. Instead of legitimately addressing libertarian candidates concerns they continue eroding our civil liberties, grow government, and launch us into foreign wars with no exit strategy." – malanb5
"I’m voting for Barr. Why? Because he’s the best candidate running. Despite the supposition that either of the mainstream candidates will bring change, the fact is that they won’t. Neither major party is willing to implement the kind of widespread changes that are truly necessary right now. It would cost them too much." – Karyyk
"GOP is going to get demolished this year and its their own fault for losing their principles. I’m voting for Barr. Most of my family is voting for Barr. And I’ve convinced a few people at work to vote for him." – planet87
