Politics: Money never sleeps

Politicians, like the rest of us, are most interested in keeping their jobs. As a result they care more about campaign contributions than they do about voters. Both of the parties are now controlled by money and special interest groups. If you are not a lawyer, corporate exec, or member of a union don't expect much help from a Republican or Democrat. Keep in mind that most politicians are experts at dancing around topics and fabricating promises. They spend countless sacks of money to find out just what the voters want and then they promise those same exacts "wants" knowing full well that they are unlikely to be delivered. Washington's finest are also good at creating this illusion that there is this big difference between Republicans and Democrats. If so, tell me how nothing has seemed to change over the past decades?

Politicians are all part of the wealthy elite, they drive the same cars and drink at the same bars. They even sing the same song, "Help ourselves, help our friends, and help our re-election". If you have grown to dislike that tune, vote for a true change.

Charlie, I agree that both parties are controlled by money and special interest groups. Everyone needs to look at all of the issues and vote for the person that appears to be "in-line" with their own beliefs-regardless of party affiliation. Good luck to you and your campaign.

What would create such a movement that the Liberatrian party could actually stand a chance against the other two? Or rather, how can the support reach a level for Libertarians to compete?

I'm not sure how to create this movement. All I can do is to do what I am doing; running for office and putting out my sicere beliefs. The rest is up to the voters and people like you getting the message out.

In terms of saving the state money the first area I would look at is the waste at the top. The biggest problem we have is getting rid of some of the people in power that are abusing their power. These are the areas that need to be gone after.
