Congressional Candidate Likes the Independent Institute but Not Bureaucratic Spendaholics

Friday October 29th, 2010   •   Posted by Lindsay Boyd at 11:41pm PDT   •  

While and the Independent Institute do not endorse political candidates, Mark Grannis—the “Libertarian alternative” candidate in Maryland’s 8th Congressional District race—endorsed us in an interview with The Washington Post on Thursday, October 28th.

Grannis cites the Independent Institute, which launched on August 31st (and is here on Facebook), among his civic activities—which he hopes will expand to include a new job in Congress after the new year. According to Grannis, the “most urgent problem” his constituents face is the economic destruction wreaked by spend-easy politicians in Washington:

Congress spends too much money on things it shouldn’t meddle with. This has wrecked our economy and brought us to the brink of financial collapse. Unless we elect representatives with the courage and honesty to balance the budget and liberate the economy, our future is grim.

But just how grim? Perhaps we should ask the Government Cost Calculator.

‘Tis may be the season for spooks and frights, but I’d rather not have the government “trick-or-treating” for more of my money this Halloween. What about you?
