America's third-largest political party will be fielding a challenge to Governor Rick Scott and presumptive Democrat nominee Charlie Crist in the 2014 election. Florida Libertarian Party Chairman Adrian Wyllie officially announced his candidacy for Governor last week. Following the trail blazed by Presidential candidates Ron Paul and Gary Johnson in 2012, Wyllie has a platform focused on economic freedom, individual liberty, and the Constitution. In one of his first campaign stops at the Lake City Tea Party last Thursday, Wyllie took a strong stand against what he sees as an overreaching federal government. "I promise that, if elected, I will defend all Floridians from any unconstitutional Congressional act, executive order or United Nations mandate," said Wyllie. He also blamed Gov. Rick Scott for "rolling over" to the Obama administration on federal health care mandates and federal gun control.All fine and dandy. And then there's this:
"Our debt is unsustainable, our currency is becoming worth less every day. The Tea Party says the government is to blame. The occupy movement says the bankers are to blame," said Wyllie. "They're both right."Editor's comment - So, I'm to believe that my local Chase or Wells Fargo branch, the nice little girl behind the counter, and the branch manager assisting me with my car loan is just as evil as the Fed's IRS Agent? Sigh.
