I have had a number of readers ask me who I am voting for in the next election. I have decided to do a short series on the upcoming election and who I support.
The Libertarian Party of Allen County is NOT endorsing these candidates. The opinions expressed in this series are mine and mine alone...
I will start with the race for US Senate. There are two candidates in this race:
Richard Lugar, Republican. Mr. Luger was elected to the Senate in 1976. He has served as a
Senator for 30 years. I used to be a fairly big fan of Senator Lugar. I think Senator Lugar is
a good man. I think 30 years as a senator is too long. I think 30 years in Washington will
effect the judgement of anyone in a noticeable fashion. When I look at Senator Lugar's
voting record I see a moderate Republican. Unfortunately, Senator Lugar has joined the herd
of Republicans that embrace larger and larger government. I can no longer vote for Mr.
Steve Osborne, Libertarian. Mr. Osborne has run as a Democrat in the past and is a
Libertarian who leans toward the Democratic side. I have met Mr. Osborne and he struck
as being both knowledgeable and personable. Major points on which Mr. Osborne and Mr.
The Iraq War. Mr. Osborne is in favor of an immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
Taxes. Mr. Osborne is in favor of lowering income taxes for both middle class and lower
class income taxes and he is in favor of not lowering taxes for the rich.
College costs. Mr. Osborne is in favor of increasing pell grants and he is in favor of tax
incentives to help families pay for college.
Government Regulations. Mr. Osborne thinks we have too many...
You can read for your self Mr. Osbornes views:
I support Mr. Osborne for this race and I will definately be voting for Mr. Osborne...
