LP Monday Message: Voters want more options

August 31, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Like you, most Americans are unhappy with the Republican and Democratic parties. Earlier this month, a Zogby poll found that 58% of people think the U.S. needs more than two major political parties.

People are also unhappy with Congress. (No surprise there.) In fact, according to a Rasmussen poll released yesterday, 57% of people would like to throw out the ENTIRE CONGRESS and start over.

Many of these dissatisfied voters are libertarians — but a lot of them don’t know it. Past polls have shown that only about 2% of people identify themselves as libertarians, even though a much higher percentage have libertarian opinions on political issues.

The Libertarian Party is working to change that. We are out there, showing that there’s more to politics than "Democrat or Republican," and more than "liberal or conservative." We are bringing the desperately needed libertarian option to American voters.

The Democrats and Republicans are working hard to take away our liberties, but with your help, the Libertarian Party can become a major political force and restore those liberties.
