Just mailed in my voter registration change from Republican to Libertarian. I have always held mainly libertarian views, although in my younger years I was unfamiliar with the term and supported American foreign policy. I described myself as a conservative and thus registered as a republican. Then I read Ron Paul's Revolution while sitting in the Iraqi desert, privately questioning whether our efforts were actually constitutional, and/or possibly futile. That book opened my eyes the rest of the way and I began to read everything I could about libertarianism and Austrian economics, and began to describe myself as a small l libertarian. I stayed a republican, thinking that the Bush administration and republican congress was an anomaly, that the party could be led back down the path of smaller government and individual liberty, that in order to have a voice one needed to be part of the 2 big parties, and that Ron Paul would be acknowledged by the republicans in 2008 in-light of everything that had transpired. Today I mailed a new voter registration card with the box marked Libertarian checked. Today I chose to stop being a part of the lesser of 2 evils, which is still evil.  Today I chose to stand with the people who shared my ideals instead of casting my lot with statists. Today I declared that I am a Libertarian.

Feel free to find me on Facebook.

I can't say I haven't thought about, but I don't know if I have the right demeanor for campaigning. I'm going to get involved locally and see what happens.

Well, give it some thought.  It is a lot of fun, you learn a lot and really the hardest part is the paperwork.  You get to meet tons of people and they are receptive when YOU are the candidate at their door. 

Do it while you are young too.  Don't wait.  Another great thing is there is an ending point (the election) , and then it is over.

Ron Paul's book, "Revolution" should be taught as a government ethics class in high school and college (instead of reading about Che Guevarra and Karl Marx).
