Many thanks to Mark Richards, for his endorsement my candidacy, in his letter published in the October 14 print edition of the Bergen Record.
Vote Libertarian on Nov. 6
As I compose this letter, the elections are slightly over three weeks away and the back-and-forth between the major parties dominates the news. Once again people are given the choice of whether they want to give up their rights to the Republicans, who don’t like personal freedom and choice, or Democrats, who don’t like economic freedom and choice.
Both groups act as if they never heard of the Constitution, let alone understand it. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a party and candidates who consistently defend liberty on all issues without exception? Well, you do; the Libertarian Party is not “right “ or “left “ but is totally pro-individual-liberty on everything from starting up a business to letting you live your personal life as you see fit.
Our candidates this year are Ramapo College Professor Murray Sabrin for U.S. Senate, Jim Tosone for Congress in New Jersey’s 5th District and locally Mike Chazukow running for Township Council here in West Milford. The Libertarian Party website is www.LP.org. I would urge all voters to look at what we’re about and vote Libertarian on Election Day.
Mark Richards, West Milford, Oct. 12
