The Raleigh News & Observer featured the Libertarian Party today in its editorial section, including a Q & A with Michael Munger, Libertarian Party candidate for governor of North Carolina. Munger is the economist who chairs the political science department at Duke.
Great interview! Munger’s top issues:
A moratorium on capital punishment
Increasing the number of charter schools (the number is capped at 100 in the state, despite long waiting lists) and coming up with a voucher program
Improving roads by creating a commission to decide on highway priorities (comparable to the federal military base closing commission).
Among many good quotes:
Q: Tell me why a vote for you on Nov. 4 wouldn’t be a wasted vote.
A. All votes are wasted unless the election is decided by a single vote. The question is, how are you going to allocate that single vote that you have? Are you going to honor your principles or vote for the lesser of two evils?
