_Will you vote Libertarian?
My name is Matthew Whittington and I hope you will vote for me to be your representative in the Texas Legislature.
Like other Libertarian candidates, I believe in free markets, civil liberties, and peace.
I'm unhappy with the results the Democrats and Republicans have delivered, and that's why I have decided to run for office myself as a Libertarian.
If you have any questions please contact me. I answer all emails.
_What is a Libertarian?
_The Libertarian philosophy is simple. Libertarians are people who support liberty.
For me personally, a Libertarian means that if you are not harming anyone through force or fraud, you should be left alone. You are also responsible for the consequences of your actions. If you need help, ask. We are nice people. Just do not ask the government to take from others to solve your problems.
Sometimes Republicans sound libertarian when they talk about cutting taxes and spending. Sometimes Democrats sound libertarian when they talk about civil liberties like free speech. Libertarians support freedom on every issue.
Although Republicans and Democrats often talk about freedom, they usually violate our freedoms and give us more rules and taxation instead.
I will support liberty on every issue, but below are four of my priorities:
Cut taxes and spending
End the War on Drugs
_Why vote Libertarian?
__Win or lose, every vote for a Libertarian sends a clear message for liberty. Don't waste your vote encouraging the Republicans and Democrats who keep making our lives worse. Don't let them scare you into voting for more government. Vote Libertarian.
We are America's third-largest political party. Many Libertarians serve in elected office throughout the U.S. We have affiliates in all 50 states. We run hundreds of candidates for all political offices from President down to U.S. Congress and city councils.
I hope you will help me change Texas for the better. I hope you will vote for me, Matthew Whittington, for State Representative.
