Posted at http://thirdpartydaily.blogspot.com/

From the Snitker Campaign for Senate, via PRLog:

Libertarian Alexander Snitker is urging his political rivals for Florida’s U.S. Senate seat to join him in signing the 10th Amendment Pledge. But, so far, Snitker is the only active candidate to sign the pledge.

Florida Libertarian Party County Chair: ‘Libertarian Party was the original ‘tea party”

Posted at http://thirdpartydaily.blogspot.com/

From a letter to the editor of the St. Petersburg Times:

The Libertarian Party was the original “tea party” founded in 1971. We have always stood for constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility and personal/social freedom. The fact that the tea parties are up and running is encouraging because people are finally realizing that government is not their friend and, ultimately, is the only entity that can legally use force to make them comply.… Read more ...

From a letter to the editor of the Socialist Webzine:

I’m a new kid on the block, just joined the Party the other day. But I’ve been thinking about socialism as an alternative to whatever you wish to call the present American system of politics and government and at the risk of repeating something that you-all have said and, I hope, are acting upon: there never will a better time in your lifetime and certainly in mine to present an alternative form of government to millions of Americans who are fed up with Capitalism as manifested by the two-headed monster known as the Republican-Democrat Party.… Read more ...
