Libertarians are much misunderstoodby David Burgess 10/10/03
Though I am not a card-carrying Libertarian Party member (I am an independent), I have friends who are, and I have somewhat of a better idea of what they are about, what their intentions are, etc., than those whose sole knowledge about the party comes from other-direction extremists such as Rush Limbaugh and the like.
What they want is a back-to-basics minimalist type of government like what we had when this great country was founded.
They want everyone to have their rights back, without Big Brother looking over our shoulders and breathing down our necks.
They want us to have back and to be able to keep our constitutional rights as American citizens.
And what better place to accomplish that than in the "Live Free Or Die" state? A place where I could write this letter to the editor without wondering what Big Brother is thinking about it, though I am.
Another point: The Libertarians have targeted Strafford and Coos counties to move to, the two poorest counties in the state (though rich in beauty).
Many Libertarians will come here and, instead of taking jobs, will open companies, cottage industries, etc., and create jobs.
Before you judge, find out the facts.
As Thomas Jefferson said, "A Government big enough to provide everything you need is big enough to take everything you have."
