Vote Badnarik Nov. 2nd!

My Thoughts On: October 27th, 2004

Retrospective comment (2009): Let me just add that I'm not quite as keen on the activities of the Libertarian Party these days as I was at the time of writing the update below.

Well, I know things have been quiet from me but I've been in something of a slump lately. Either way, I managed to get back into the swing of things and get a few updates up today. My campaign site is up, with several blog updates there, and a new TeeJ post went up today too, breaking a month's writer's block.

Vote Badnarik/Campagna 2004
Election day is coming up!

I voted last Thursday, the morning before the man I voted for - Michael Badnarik - showed up in town. I attended that fundraiser where he delivered a great speech (you can see the audio/video of the speech here), amongst some other worthwhile clips. For local offices I voted straight Libertarian (however, in a race with no Libertarian, I voted for a Republican - Ron Sunseri - to protest the annoying Democrat counter-campaign in my area). I voted down most proposed measures (including the gay marriage amendment and the annoying limited logging measure), except for 35 (caps frivolous medical malpractice suits with non-economic "damages") and 37 (which requires the government to pay out for damages their regulations cause to property owners, or forgoe enforcement of zoning rules).

I hope each of you take the time to check out all the options on your ballot, and especially consider voting Libertarian this year. Speaking of which, I just ran across this great article by Mr. Badnarik on the subject of the Iraq War, check it out. As for me, I'm gonna go get back to work, as I've got a few new projects coming up, and with the campaign site officially underway I've got plenty of election news to cover. Likewise, I'd like to announce the beginning of another new project that might especially interest the PeeJ crowd, although it's more for everyone. Of course more details will come as things develop... right now it's under wraps.
