Libertarian Party Offers Only Real Alternative in November, Says Bob Barr

“Americans are deeply dissatisfied with the direction their country is going and desperately want real change,” says Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party presidential nominee. “But real change will not come from the two major parties, with their well-established commitment to the status quo. It will only come from outside the current system—and through the Barr presidential campaign and the Libertarian Party.”

The American people have made their feelings known in the latest Zogby poll, which found that six percent of them favor Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr. “And that is without benefiting from all of the media attention paid to the primaries and the big advertising campaigns already initiated by the other parties,” notes Barr.

At six percent “we have more than three times the support of any other alternative party,” Barr explains. Seven percent of conservatives, 11 percent of independents, and 43 percent of libertarians said they backed the Barr campaign. Pollster John Zogby observed that “Bob Barr has some juice among conservatives... ”

With this level of support, “which will only grow as the Barr campaign’s message of limited government and individual liberty reaches more people, it is only fair for the American people to include the Libertarian Party nominee along with the candidates of the Democratic and Republican parties in all public forums, from candidate town halls to national debates,” says Barr.

“The November election should be about issues, not personalities,” notes Barr. “The American people have suffered for too long from the big-spending policies and partisan antics of Republicans and Democrats alike in Washington.” The country desperately needs an alternative. “The latest poll demonstrates that the one real alternative is the Bob Barr campaign and the Libertarian Party,” Barr adds.
