Loose Lips’ account of the D.C. councilmembers fighting for committee assignments (11/17) vividly illustrates the corruption of our ruling parties. After all, when you’re in the business of taking people’s money and giving it to someone else, you are going to attract every sleazy hustler around. Corruption is guaranteed.

The Libertarian Party is specifically organized to solve this problem. Libertarians reject the game of voting to grab other people’s money—or their choices. That’s why the parties in power, and the recipients of their spoils, go to such lengths to shut Libertarians out of the political debate and out of the media.

Libertarians are overcoming this blackout by reaching out to people directly. Check out www.lp.org and send the ruling parties a message!
