Hodgkinson for U.S. Senate


It's time to look past just the Republican and Democratic candidates and to a Libertarian, Randall L. Hodgkinson. The Libertarian statement of principles says "the members of the Libertarian Party challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual. We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose." Randall is a member of the Topeka community. He also has his law degree from Arizona State University, and is a visiting assistant law professor at Washburn University.On Randall's campaign web-site I quote that he says these are his following reasons for why he is running for Senate. "I became a candidate because I have been unsatisfied with our current representation in Congress on three major issues: (1) fiscal responsibility, (2) environmental sustainability, and (3) adherence to the Rule of Law." Adherence to the Rule of Law commonly refers to a clear separation of powers, legal certainty, and the principle of legitimate expectation and equality of all before the law.If everyone would take a minute to look into Randall Hodgkinson, we might just see that there is a better candidate outside of the Republican and Democratic Parties.http://randallforsenate.org/http://www.votesmart.org/bio.php?can_id=109704http://www.lp.org/platform

This is so true, there are answers outside the two parties. These answers are found in the middle. Libertarians usually have to end up becoming "moderates" in the two party system to get elected.

What I like about looking outside of the two parties is the lack of attack ads. Which personally I'm tired of listening to.

i think it is hilarious that a lot of people flat out REFUSE to see that there are other parties than "their" party.

And when you do not go outside of the two main parties, sometimes you have to vote just the better of the two evils.
