Libertarians Say, Don’t Forget Us

Libertarians Say, Don’t Forget Us

It’s not a conspiracy; “it’s codified in state law,” says Lex Green. The Democrats and Republicans wrote the rules to benefit themselves, says the Libertarian Party of Illinois’ political director.

He says his people had to collect five times the signatures as the two established parties. “We feel the parties should manage their own business.” His party is fighting the Illinois State Board of Elections, to no avail so far.

Lest you think the limited-government, full-freedom agenda sounds like the Republicans, Green reminds us it was a Republican-led Illinois which introduced a state income tax.

The Libertarian slate includes:

  • Sharon Hansen, U. S. Senate
  • Chad Grimm, governor
  • Alex Cummings, lieutenant governor
  • Ben Koyl, attorney general
  • Julie Fox, comptroller
  • Matthew Skopek, treasurer
  • Chris Michel, secretary of state
