Urges Voters to Vote for Real, Principled Change

Bob Barr says that Sen. John McCain is on his “farewell tour” across America, as it has become clear that Sen. McCain has no realistic chance of winning the presidential election.

“The wheels on the Straight Talk Express have come off,” says Barr, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president. “Sen. McCain will be spending the last two weeks before the election on his ‘farewell tour’ across America. Sen McCain’s mixed and angry message, as well as his support of big-spending policies, have killed any chance McCain may have had to win this election.”

Barr says this means Republican-leaning voters who are reluctant to vote for John McCain and his big government record, “can feel comfortable knowing that their vote for Bob Barr will be a vote for smaller government, less spending and lower taxes.”

“Now, principled conservatives can vote their conscience instead of voting for a faux-conservative just because he carries the Republican label,” explains Barr. “Small ‘L’ libertarians don’t have to vote defensively for the lesser of two evils because it is clear that McCain no longer has any realistic chance to win the election.”

“A vote for John McCain is a wasted vote,” says Barr.

Barr says Sen. McCain “never appealed to the fiscal conservatives because of his record of increasing the size and power of government. John McCain’s refusal to stand up against the bailout tore the wheels right off the so-called ‘Straight Talk Express’ bus!”

“If you want your vote to count, and go towards a leader dedicated to lowering taxes, cutting spending, and drastically reducing the size of government, then you still have a choice in 2008. That choice is Bob Barr,” says Barr.

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the U. S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003.

The Libertarian Party is America’s third largest political party, founded in 1971 as an alternative to the two main political parties. You can find more information on the Libertarian Party by visiting . The Libertarian Party proudly stands for smaller government, lower taxes and more freedom.
