Inform the Public about Libertarians
Home Up

I agree with recent letter-writer Barbara Lombard's assessment of the media coverage of the Libertarian Party.

It is especially shameful in light of all the media attention that Ross Perot's Reform Party has received.

The Reform Party has a barely defined platform, will have a candidate for only one office and is entirely dependent on the whims of an eccentric billionaire.

The Libertarian Party, however, has a well-developed platform with planks on all major issues and will field candidates for federal, state and local offices all over the country, including a majority of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

If you are serious about keeping the voters informed, then you need to cover the Libertarian Party at least as much as you cover the Reform Party.

However, if you are just interested in the latest flash-in-the-pan, then by all means please keep us up to date on the latest antics of kooky rich people like Perot.
