Well, it’s the start of a new year. Like each year, I hope it’s at least a little better than the one before it. Last year was good. I received over 1000 votes in my bid as the Libertarian candidate for Lincoln County Commissioner, hundreds more than any other third-party candidate received from Lincoln County voters. That’s not as much as I’d hoped for, but more than I expected. It may not be much, but it’s a good start!
Now, I have to keep this momentum going. That means becoming even more visible, taking every opportunity to talk to people about the benefits of freedom and liberty and how government doesn’t work. With the good response I received last year, I’m convinced that people in Lincoln County are very receptive to this message. This is a county of basically good people, who can solve their own problems if government would just get out of the way. The challenge is merely in letting them see their potential.
