All Blogcritics, regardless of political affiliation, should be proud of the job Al Barger is doing running a near-vertically uphill campaign for the U.S. Senate as the Libertarian candidate from Indiana. You don’t have to agree with a single one of his policy positions to see that he is doing it right, fighting the good fight – in fact, living out a key element of the American Dream: taking your considered view of how government can best serve its citizens out to those citizens and asking for their support in the cause. It is the very essence of democracy, the epitome of citizenship, and requires courage and determination.
Now Al is taking over the airwaves – to the extent his modest budget allows – with two new TV ads for his campaign, this one on social security (expanded consideration of the topic here) , and this one on the corporate welfare that is current copyright law. Though I am not a Libertarian and philosophically see a larger legitimate role for governement than he does, I’m with him 100% on this copyright mess.
Like I said, Al is honoring the process, giving it his all, and he deserves our respect and admiration as he campaigns for the votes of the citizens of Indiana.
