Re: Election Day
I was going to be voting for Bush -- the lesser of two evils -- but then I realized that if everybody who wants to see real change thought the same way, there would never be any hope for more than just 2 candidates. As a result, it would always be a choice between the lesser of two evils, instead of a choice for who would truly be best for the Presidency.
I don't think many people will disagree with the statement that our government is too big and bloated. If the other parties had been allowed into the televised debates, more people would realize that there are more, and BETTER, choices for the presidency. The Libertarians want as small a government as possible. And yes, that includes various governing agencies who are constantly locking the public out of public land, trying to take our guns away, taking so much of our hard-earned money in taxes, etc.
I was going to vote for Bush just to keep Gore out of office, but at the last minute I changed my mind and voted for Browne because otherwise, I would be going against my ideals. I know he won't win, but if more and more people vote for the underdogs, eventually others will see that there's more than just two choices. I'm proud of my decision too.
