This was sent to me for publication here by Mr. Scheetz, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania
Libertarians in Pennsylvania have had success here in 2013 .. . In York, the incumbent had to spend $50,000 in a last ditch effort to save her job against David Moser who, together with Manuel Gomez spent less than $200 on their entire campaign! Shawn Felty WON up in Schuylkill County! Matt Shutter WON in Carbon County! Nicholas Hillman led a group in Bucks County to victory as well! Nicholas Hillman is now a judge of elections for Warminster, and in the same location, we have two inspectors of elections which puts Libertarians in charge! Brandon Magoon won a write in campaign in Erie, There were some school board victories, and I am probably missing a number more success stories!
We have had Libertarians with more than 30% of the vote, and this is saying something very positive about our candidates, and it is saying something about the R’s and D’s It is saying that money is no longer enough! Our message is gaining momentum, David Moser and Manuel Gomez are really doing an awesome job organizing the Libertarians in York, and they have such an uphill battle against that machine that is so unbelievably entrenched! Drew Bingaman ran into the same problem in Sunbury. However, this was not a defeat of Libertarians; this was a wakeup call telling us all that we need to double our efforts! We need to build the party, gain some volunteers, and go to work!
I am so proud to have been elected to serve the Libertarians in Pennsylvania, because in this capacity, I have had the privilege to see our members demonstrating that they can achieve any goal, (and this one in particular,) from so many directions. It is truly awesome to see that there are so many right ways to the correct answer!
The PEOPLE are telling us that they want something the Republicans and Democrats are not offering, and once they believe that they can elect Libertarians as opposed to the lesser evil, the entire political landscape of Pennsylvania and the rest of the United States will change!
Ladies and Gentlemen, none of us know exactly what the future holds, but more of us are beginning to see the possibility of a brighter future with the power in the hands of the people instead of an elite group who believes it knows better than the people how best to run our country. I am hopeful that future comes sooner rather than later, but I am more positive now that it will indeed come!
