Harrisburg, PA - Tomorrow, Pennsylvania taxpayers will fund the primary elections for two old and entrenched political parties, the Republican and Democratic Parties.  The two incumbent parties, both in our commonwealth and nationally, have brought us intrusive bureaucracies, staggering mismanagement, suffocating deficits and crushing debts, putting us all in jeopardy.

Is it time to reward them or to call for a real change in November?

LPPa Media Relations Chair, S. Douglas Leard, took time last week to ask Pennsylvania's Libertarian Party candidates why voters should support a LP candidate instead of an old party candidate.   Here are a few of the responses:
Libertarian Party 12th Congressional District Candidate in the May 18th Special Election, Demo Agoris (www.a7s.us) responded "Vote For and Support Your LP candidates to protect and defend Your Liberties, 'The Bill Of Rights', Less Government, Lower Taxes, and More Freedom.  Your LP Candidates Equal 'We, The People, Power'."

U.S. House District 5 candidate, Vernon Etzel said "You can make your voice heard this November.  What do you want Washington to hear?  The problems facing our future are bigger than any one of us.  The Libertarian Party stands for your rights and your future.  We stand for representation based on Principle, not Politics.  Help us continue to grow by voting Libertarian this year."
U.S. Senate candidate, Doug Jamison, indicated "I have been a Republican for almost 40 years.  After observing the two party system, I have come to the conclusion that neither party has the interests of the people's freedoms and liberties but only their own party's passions and agendas.  The Libertarian Party is fundamentally rooted in not only the constituents' liberties and freedoms, but also in following our constitution as interpreted by our Founding Fathers."
While going to vote on Tuesday, if you see someone asking for ballot access signatures to get a Libertarian Party candidate on the ballot, please consider offering your signature.  By doing so you will be doing more than just helping someone get on the November ballot.  More importantly, you will be putting the incumbent parties on notice that you want more options in November.  Libertarians will be collecting ballot access signatures from now until late July to get more choices on the November ballot.  Your signature can only make incumbents more accountable by letting them know that you know how to replace them.

The Libertarian Party is the third largest political party in Pennsylvania and the United States. More than 200,000 people across the country are registered Libertarians, and Libertarians serve in hundreds of elected offices. Please visit www.LP.org or www.LPPA.org for more information.
