Here’s the release I’ve been getting in my e-mail all day long
U.S. Senate Candidate Redick, Disgusted With GOP, Joins Libertarians
MADISON, WI: Former Republican U.S. Senate candidateannounced today that he has joined the Libertarian Party, and has re-filed to run for U.S. Senate this fall as a Libertarian.
Dave says; “The Republican Party nationwide is off course compared to it’s traditional values, and Republican leaders at the State, and County level seem to like it that way (or at least will settle to be submissive and abused “loyalists” to DC). The far-right religious groups, corrupt Congressmen, and warmonger “neocons” have taken over in DC, and it seems no one is willing or able to push them back. It is now the war, big-spending, and homeland spy party. My campaign efforts to gain support for reform have been fruitless, but revealed the depth of trouble the Republicans are in. While they engage in self-serving denial to hide problems, the cliff of the November 7 election is fast approaching. Pollsters predict many losses.
Hence I have left the Republicans to their well-earned fate, and joined the Libertarian “Party of Principle.” It embraces my philosophy of limited government, fiscal conservatism, and peace, along with social liberalism consistent with the Bill of Rights. These values and principles have been mine since becoming politically active in 1978, and on my web site since my announcement for Senate in January, 2006.
