Libertarian Matthew Powell gets Major Facetime at the Augusta Chronicle

Tired of major parties? Try Libertarians

Is there a real difference between Nathan Deal and Roy Barnes? Both would expand state government.
Mr. Deal is corrupt to the point of making former state Sen. Charles Walker look like an angel. And what of Mr. Barnes? Mr. Barnes served only one term as governor of this great state, perhaps with good reason.
Whether Mr. Deal or Mr. Barnes wins, the result will be the same: the status quo, with no real reform and an ever-increasing state government.
Voters should use the power they have to usher in an era of real change! Why not take a look at the Libertarian Party ticket? Look at Libertarian gubernatorial candidate John Monds -- a man of integrity who would do everything in his power to keep more money in our pockets and truly work to end wasteful spending.
Look at Kira Willis, Libertarian Party candidate for state school board superintendent. She has vowed to cut all unnecessary positions in public education, including positions that do not involve direct contact with students.
Those of you who live in Richmond County Board of Education District 6, look at Taylor Bryant. This man has a vested interest in bringing true change to the Board of Education, as he has two stepsons in the school system. His motto is "Students before politics," and he means what he says.
If you are tired of the two major parties, do not continue the reckless cycle of voting for the lesser of two evils. The lesser of two evils is still evil.
Some say that voting for a third party is a wasted vote. I say not voting your conscience is a true wasted vote. If you truly believe in the message of Republicans or Democrats, by all means vote for them. However, if you want to have true change based on a platform that is logically consistent, vote Libertarian.
Check us out, and truly make your vote count.
