Give 'em L in Austin

Vote NO on all bond issues

The Travis County Libertarian Party (TCLP) has adopted a resolution opposing all seven City of Austin bond propositions to appear on the November 7 ballot.

"This authorization for wasteful spending would seriously increase the burden on local taxpayers," said Wes Benedict,
TCLP chair. "Most homeowners' tax bills already went up this year. We don't need a tax increase from the city on top of the fake tax cut the state just gave us."

Don't forget to "give 'em L" when you step into that voting booth -- haven't those nasty old "Ds" and "Rs" had enough of an opportunity to show how much better they are at spending your money than you are? Libertarians are the only ones who work to have government do less, be less dominant, and cause less strife and conflict among societal groups.
The following Libertarians will be on the ballot in Travis County. (Candidates in boldface live in Travis County.) You can just print this list out and take it with you to vote. If you live outside Travis County, please check http://www.lptexas. org/candidates. shtml for Libertarian candidates across the state.
