These statements seem so specious. Most of the people I've talked with who voted for Nader in 2000 have indicated they weren't going to vote for Gore period. Similar to most of the Libertarians I've talked with this election season, who have indicated they wouldn't vote for Bush even if there wasn't an LP candidate on the ballot.

In any event, one of our guest columnists did an insiders look at the 2004 Libertarian Party Convention http://www.reasontofreedom.com/indexlpc.html , which your readers might find interesting.

I am tired of being an American that doesn't care. I am tired of being an American that doesn't think my vote will make a difference. I am tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. It is no wonder that our country often lies in a state of plight, when we focus more on what we don't want, rather than what we want. This November I will vote for what I want, and I will vote for what I believe in. This November, I will vote with a passion. This November, I will vote for Michael Badnarik.


I am in the Single Women Who Decide This Year's Vote Club. I am not happy with either Bush or Kerry and started pursuing other options. I thought I would vote against the incumbent, but I just dont like Kerry and his policies, either. Who was going to be worse? Bush or Kerry? What a sad question. Then I read that voting Libertarian this year, as I have done in the past, will take votes away from Bush. This is voting with my conscience AND against the incumbent. Thanks for your website.
