It would appear that we have set a record for the most number of votes a Libertarian candidate has received in the Colorado Gubernatorial race.

To all of those who say I spoiled the election, stole votes, and other similar items. Your exact reasons are why you should be demanding that your representatives push to enact approval voting in Colorado.

However, if you claim the election was stolen because of a candidate not important enough to include in debates, who didn't advertise on tv or radio, who didn't do any phone banking, who didn't send any mailers, who didn't freely hand out bumper stickers or yard signs, who got less than a tenth of a percent of media coverage, and who didn't bring in any real money then you clearly aren't embracing individual responsibility.

Liberty is gaining in popularity again.

As things stand now I have exceeded the margin separating the major party candidates and the hate mail has begun.

If you feel that I'm another election spoiler I strongly urge you to badger your representatives to enact approval voting to prevent future spoilers.

I will, of course, disagree because I worked hard for the votes I have received and believe that I have earned them. A vote is not the property of anyone else but the individual casting or withholding it.

I started this campaign back in January of 2013 at the urging of my friends. It has been a long road and I have added over 24 thousand miles to my car as a result. At the beginning I made a promise to run a positive campaign. I have adhered to that and taught many about what liberty means along the way. [ 433 more words. ]

Those that find freedom and prosperity too "extreme" will glady labor in chains for political handouts.

Whenever government fails to provide security the event is used to justify the need for government to be involved in providing security.

Giving a current politician power to do good is also giving a future politician power to do bad. Stop giving politicians more power.

If a particular government program is such a great investment why is government the only one willing to invest in it?

When you hear "so-and-so has ZERO chance of winning, they are saying in effect "We lived very well off of the last 17 Trillion we dumped on you kids and want $17 Trillion more - Thank You"!

My ideals and goals have been called a fantasy by those that believe Democratic or Republican politicians really want to reduce government.
