To the editor:

I am not a career politician. I am not a wealthy or well-connected member of the elite. I am a regular person standing up for the Constitution.

Last year at age 28 I was the most successful Libertarian candidate in New Jersey for a second year. But my real goal is to recruit other young people to run for office as Libertarians. Freedom is the future and we’re the generation we’ve been waiting for.

The only way to fix America’s problems is for concerned citizens to run for office. The two corrupt major parties are lost causes. They are not funded by the people and therefore do not represent their interests. We the people must reestablish the legal supremacy of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We must accept our families deserve better than the lesser of two evils.

The Libertarian Party is the third-largest and fastest-growing party in the United States. It is experiencing an explosion of growth among young people. We need more citizen-leaders to run for office and interject real issues back into our political discourse. Liberty is a non-partisan issue

We are only at the opening stages of a very long drama that will result in the restoration of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We need leaders to spread the message of liberty in their communities. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for young patriots to make history in a positive way.

It’s time to get real and get involved.

Chair, NJ Libertarian Party
