Re: “Consider third-party candidates” (letter, 8-9).

The writer is spot on concerning the 2012 presidential election. He correctly points out that we really have no real choice in the “Rombama” candidates running for our country’s highest office. Once again we are faced with the choice of the lesser of two evils.

The Big Government Party (that is, the Democrats and Republicans) has led our nation to the brink of financial collapse by involving our country in building an unsustainable military empire, engaging in wars with no clear plan for victory, and wasteful spending on enslaving our citizens with “entitlements.”

In this coming election, voters should vote for the candidates who clearly reflect their values. If that means using the write-in feature of the ballot, then do it. Let’s send a message to the same old tired politicians that we are no longer going to vote for the same old thing. Let’s show government we’ve had enough of the Big Government Party’s business as usual.
