Ed Wright, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from the 3rd District spoke with the Des Moines Register about the future of the LPIA for a November 10, 2014, post-election story:
“Wright, who served for six years as the Libertarian Party state chairman, told The Des Moines Register he thinks there is room for growth for the party in Iowa.
‘I think that people increasingly see that regardless of which of the two big parties is in power in Congress that “We the people” consistently get less and less freedom, and if any one concept defines Americanism it is freedom,’ Wright said.
‘Repeatedly, we are getting more and more regulation, taxation, invasion of privacy — all of the concepts that our Founders had in mind when they created our country,’ he added. ‘We are seeing that persistently eroded by actions of the fear-mongering and the trickery of the two big parties as they consistently claw for more and more power for themselves and their cronies with utter disregard for the freedom and property and rights of we the people.’”
