Libertarian talk show host Neal Boortz says that the Libertarian Party and other independents should not be voting for a third party in the 2010 mid-term elections:
On April 2nd I said on the air that 2010 was not the year to be voting for a third party in the congressional mid-term elections. The stakes are just too high this time around. Democrats MUST be removed from office. I truly believe that if The Community Organizer is given two more years with this level of support from sycophant Democrats in the congress we will have gone past the point of no return. Obama is, I believe, dedicated to the destruction of our free market economy. He has to be stopped this year. Now the Libertarians might tell you that they draw almost as many votes from Democrats as they do Republicans. Well, this year I’m not buying that. We can’t afford to take that chance. This year the Libertarian Party should concentrate on party-building in local elections.
Boortz makes a good point in this regard. Where do you stand?
Is it time to send a message to Washington, state and local representatives by voting for third-party candidates, or does the American public first need to focus on stopping the progressive trend by voting for the lessor of two evils and replacing as many democrats with republicans as possible?
