Listener Comments:

Yes, "Libertarians are more likely to take votes away from Republicans than Democrats" - If no one has noticed America is on the road to serfdom, they are not researching how this administration is stealing our freedoms - as though the failed stimuli and healthscare isn't enough.
Another term of way this administration ignores responsibility will destroy wealth for future generations - the media suddenly lost concern about the economy when Obama became President - and we seem to believe everything the media presents - the Democrats don't need any more help - they already have the unions, media, and people that believe their false promises.
We know there will not be a Libertarian President - so the Republicans were not trying to squash freedom - they were trying to protect freedom.
There is a one party monopoly - the democrats - they will listen to any reasonable alternative which means it has to be a version of what they want.

Thanks WKSU for sharing this story about the Republican effort to squash freedom of voter choice in Ohio. I'm definitely voting for Gary Johnson the Libertarian candidate for President, and I will encourage others to do so too. The Libertarians are more likely to take votes away from Republicans than Democrats anyway. Genuine freedom in America is under assault by the two party monopoly in power in this country. Jefferson, Madison, Franklin and other founding fathers have to be turning in their graves on what this country has become. Thanks again!
