Who is behind effort to restrict our choices?
To the editor:
I would like to know if state lawmakers are involved with the recent troubles the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party have been having maintaining their spots on the Pennsylvania ballot.
As a concerned constituent I want to reiterate that stifling choice at the ballots cannot, under any circumstances, be tolerated. A free people who aren’t free to make an informed decision on who they would like to represent them in a republic aren’t very free at all.
As a registered Republican, I am slightly right of center and I tend to vote Republican most of the time, though I have voted once for a Libertarian president and once for a Democratic governor.
I may not agree with a party’s policies and views but that party has a right to be on the ballot and have their voice heard, and the people have a right to decide.
No matter what your views are on any other issue, any attempt to take away the freedom of choice from the free will cost you my vote in future elections.
This might cast some light on your vote
To the editor:
So, if you have not settled on your presidential choice, here’s a suggestion. Before casting your ballot, review your tax returns and retirement account totals for 1992 through 2000.
Then pull up the YouTube of Bill Clinton’s nominating speech from the Democratic Convention (Sept. 5) and watch it. That will illuminate your decision.
