Chairman: 20% will change Georgia politics forever

logotinylpgalogoOpinion by Doug Craig –

Chairman Libertarian Party of Georgia

 

.
Runoff likely in Governor’s race – Libertarians need your vote.

 
Georgia’s race for governor will likely be decided in a runoff. Neither Deal nor Carter will have enough votes to win outright, according to several recent polls.

 

 

Libertarian candidate Andrew Hunt is polling above 7% and continues to travel the state talking issues and seeking voters support.

 
The prize for the Libertarian Party is 20%. By law, if a “third party” receives 20% in a gubernatorial or presidential race the party will receive full political party status. This means not only will the Libertarian Party have statewide ballot access, libertarian candidates can run in district and county races without the restrictive petition signature requirements.

Libertarian Party: get out, stay out of Iraq and Syria

The Libertarian Party urges lawmakers to stop bombing in Iraq and to disengage operations in both Iraq and Syria. Read more here >>>

“The U.S. government has been intervening in the Middle East for more than half a century under the pretext of achieving peace,” said Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee. “But things just keep getting worse. We must stop stoking conflicts that tear countries apart, stop dropping bombs, and stay out of the region.”

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. 

This is the problem with both of our major political parties: They both want to give more power to government, the only difference is they just want that power in incrementally smaller doses.  The Farm Bill is a $956 billion dollar expenditure. That’s almost a trillion dollars of government power at work in an economy running an $18+ trillion dollar deficit!   [Read more...]

Georgia Libertarians Launch Ad Campaign – Andrew Hunt for Governor

Libertarian Party of Georgia is happy to announce the release of a 30 second TV ad for gubernatorial candidate Andrew Hunt. Produced by libertarian activist James Bell at Van Gogh, Inc. video production studio in Smyrna GA. Below is a statement release by chairman Doug Craig :

Labor Day is viewed as the official start of the political campaign season leading up to the November general election. To kick off the season, the Libertarian Party of Georgia has produced a television ad designed to introduce its gubernatorial candidate Andrew Hunt and remind voters there is an alternative to the other two political parties.

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.
