Amanda Swafford Addresses Farm Bill Issues

AmandaFrom: Amanda Swafford – U.S. Senate Candidate – Libertarian Party of Georgia

Last week, Georgia Farm Bureau’s state board met with my opponents in this race to get their opinions on the new Farm Bill which was recently signed into law. And although Libertarians were not invited, as the Libertarian candidate for US Senate I am offering my thoughts on the issue.

Nunn told the Bureau she supported the Farm Bill. And while Perdue said he opposed it, he actually supports more of the Farm Bill than he opposes because he is on record saying it didn’t do enough.

Ad for Andrew Hunt Libertarian Party of Georgia

Doug Craig, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Georgia, said the message is simple: Voters are losing interest in the two parties that have brought us high unemployment, under performing schools and over-regulation that hurts business.

“We’re excited to take our message of fiscal responsibility and personal freedom to the voters,” said Craig. “The recent 19 percent voter turnout in the state primary indicates voters have lost interest in the stale two party system and they refuse to give away their votes. There is no need for voters to feel disenfranchised. The Libertarian Party wants their vote.”

The Libertarian Party will use the ad for fundraising and place the ad in select markets. Social media will also be used and will play a critical role in voter outreach.
