"Why compete for votes when you can use your gubernatorial powers to change or bend the law to quash your opponents?" That seems to be the attitude of Ohio Republican governor and presidential hopeful John Kasich.
Voters today strongly disapprove of the performance of both Democrats and Republicans in office and want more choices on the ballot. But Kasich denied them a choice when he helped to knock his competitor, Libertarian for Governor Charlie Earl, off the ballot in 2014.
Libertarian Party: The Only Presidential Choice for Liberty Still Standing
With Sen. Rand Paul's announcement today that he is suspending his campaign, the Libertarian Party nominee will be, indisputably, the only choice for small government in the 2016 race for President of the United States.
Many "small l" libertarians hoped Rand Paul would win the GOP nomination. But the forces of Big Government that dominate the Republican Party won out, once again.

Old Parties Collude on Budget Deal to Put Americans Deeper in Debt
The White House, along with Democratic and Republican politicians in Congress, released a budget deal on October 26 that throws more cash at Big Government programs and raises the debt. It also subverts the budget caps established by the Budget Control Act of 2011 by upping them by $80 billion and by throwing an additional $59 billion into a Pentagon slush fund.
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.
