Libertarian congressional candidate asks for voters' support in election

To the Editor,

Are you fed up with Washington? If not, and you think things are fine, then keep doing what you're doing - voting Republican, Democrat or just not voting at all. Then nothing will change - except, of course, the deficit will continue to rise (your portion is only $55,000, or $220,000 for a family of four) and federal agencies will continue to encroach on your freedom (for your own good, they say).

But if you are concerned about where America is headed and think we need to change direction, then you need to change direction. Einstein said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Republicans, if you keep voting Republican, and Democrats, if you keep voting Democrat, and non-voters, if you keep not voting, don't expect different results. If you don't change, Washington won't change.

I used to be a Republican, because I thought they were the party of small government. But then I discovered that Republicans have controlled the House of Representatives, where spending bills must originate, for 14 of the last 18 years, and our deficit grew from under $5 trillion to over $17 trillion. Four of those years, they controlled not only the House, but also the Senate and the White House, and the deficit still increased $2.2 trillion. Republicans say they're for small government, but their actions speak otherwise.

I've changed. I joined the Libertarian Party. Libertarians truly believe in individual freedom, free enterprise and small, limited government - only large enough to protect us and our property from those who would use force to harm us, yet small enough not to over step its authority.

The Libertarian Party has selected me to be on the November ballot for Indiana's 5th Congressional District. If you agree with me that we need to change direction, please support John Krom for Congress. When you elect me, remember I will have no power structure above me telling me how to vote like the Republicans and Democrats do - I will only have you to answer to.

Our future, our children's future and our grandchildren's future depend on your getting involved!

Sincerely,

John Krom

Noblesville
