Rhode Island Libertarians withhold support for gubernatorial candidates
At The Libertarian Party of Rhode Island’s recent convention they passed a motion declining to support any candidates running for governor in Rhode Island.
LPRI believes in smaller government through less taxes and more personal freedom. After reviewing each of the candidate’s positions they feel that no candidate meets those requirements.
“Rhode Island needs a governor who will not intrude into our personal lives,” says Brian Stack, vice-chairman for LPRI. None of the candidates on the ballot are committed to both lowering taxes and giving the people back their civil liberties.
LPRI believes that in this current economic situation raising taxes will not boost the economy and may lead to an increase in Rhode Island’s unemployment rate which is already one of the highest in the country.
The Party is also weary of many of the candidate’s stances regarding protecting civil liberties and ensuring equality for all people in the state.
