Reported in the Manchester, NH Union Leader newspaper:
Although he’s yet to secure a spot on the New Hampshire presidential ballot, Republican-turned-Libertarian Bob Barr visited Manchester yesterday, drawing attention and, possibly votes, away from Republican John McCain.
Barr visited Murphy’s Tap Room in downtown Manchester, where about 90 people listened to his calls for small government and personal freedom, and nodded agreement to his notion that the country’s two major political parties are headed in the same direction.
Appearing on BizRadio (Houston, Texas), Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr told host Daniel Frishberg on â€œThe Money Man Reportâ€ that he sees a tremendous opportunity for change in the United Statesâ€™ government and economic system.
Asked for his position on the IRS and the Fair Tax, Barr responded that the real issue is getting a handle on federal spending, ceasing federal intervention in the economy, and relinquishing federal responsibilities in social services.
