I am not sure when else in history when two so reviled people ran for governor. Yet odds dictate that one of these will be governor in 2015.
I have heard "lesser of two evils" used to describe one's vote as if there isn't an alternative. There's a man running who most likely shares the opinions of the majority but name recognition, i.e., money, keeps him off the radar screen.
One party says they're for freedom yet wants to mandate you buy what they say or else! The other party says you're free so long as you marry the right gender.
One party says there are no poor people, only the lazy, and the other says there are no lazy people, only poor.
Never miss a local story.
One says there's no criminals, only good people who made bad choices, and the other says there's no good people involved in the criminal justice system.
One says they despise government interference but encourage police to trample on rights of citizens daily (forgetting police ARE government!) and the other says it's alright for the IRS to criminalise opinions they hate.
Both sides claim: "keep the government off your body" but one simply means reproductive system; they believe they own the others via seat belt laws, banning large sodas, smoking, etc. The other says except the end-of-life or reproductive choices.
Get the point? Vote Libertarian candidate Adrian Wylie, who says "pro choice" includes guns, what you put in your body, schools, who you marry, what you wish to sell and buy and won't take so-called moral stands against choices.
He is neither your mommy or daddy and understands you don't need one because you're an adult and do not need the iron fist of government governing your choices because they know what's best. Send a message and vote Wylie on Nov. 4.
