Under the bus....

Imagine for a moment that you were standing in St. Louis, and wanted to travel to Boston. Checking with the Blue Bus Company, you discovered that their only bus was headed for Seattle at 70 MPH, and checking with the Red Bus Company, you found that their only bus was headed for Seattle at 50 MPH . When you protested that you didn't really want to go to Seattle, the Red Bus driver replied, "Well, at least we won't take you where you don't want to go as fast as the Blue Bus ."

We are approaching another election season, and those who vote will get to help decide which direction our country will be heading in the next few years. Certainly if you approve of the direction we are currently headed, and want to get there as quickly as possible, voting for the philosophy espoused by the Democratic Party is the best way to get there. If you approve of where we are headed, but want to get there a little slower, or just with a different driver, the Republican Party offers that option. (Those who don't believe that should check the growth of government and its debt under the last few Republican administrations.)

If, however, you want to reverse the growth of government instead of simply slowing that growth, and if you want to change the direction of government back to one of personal freedom and personal responsibility, you have the option of voting for the Libertarians. This year the Libertarian Party of Indiana is fielding over 100 candidates, along with the national LP fielding 168 candidates for the U.S. House, and 20 for the U.S. Senate.

Sometimes it's not enough just to take your foot off of the gas. Sometimes you have to turn the wheel.
