To the editor:
My choice for president/vice president in 2012 will be Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray.
To many they may be a “third party choice,” a vote for or against the Democrat incumbents or the Republican challengers or even a wasted vote. To me, Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray are, simply, the best team for the job.
Gov. Johnson’s plan for our nation’s debt is brutal but necessary. Massive federal spending cuts now. Submit a balanced budget now.
People may argue but the facts are that it will work. Just look at New Mexico where Gov. Johnson spent eight years slashing spending and vetoing unnecessary spending legislation. What did the citizens of New Mexico end up with? A billion dollar surplus! Now that is the kind of leadership we need in Washington.
I hear so many people say that they are disappointed with President Obama’s leadership over the last four years and that the only way to get him out is to vote for Gov. Romney. That a vote for a “third party” candidate is a waste of a vote because a third party candidate cannot win.
So which came first? The chicken or the egg? You are supporting the Democrat or Republican because you don’t want the other side to win and no one else has a chance, but no one else has a chance because you are supporting the Democrat or Republican. Please educate yourselves on the candidates and their parties.
For the record there will be, as of my writing this, 11 candidates on the Kentucky ballot eligible for your vote. Candidates from the Constitution Party, Democratic Party, Green Party and Libertarian Party along with an independent candidate will all be printed on the ballot. There are also six additional candidates eligible for your write-in vote.
Complaining is easy and voting for the “lesser of two evils” is even easier but making an educated choice, even if your candidate seems out numbered, and voting for the candidate that believes in the same issues you do makes more sense.
