Election: Stance of Libertarian Candidate

August 25, 1994

This is with reference to published reports and newspaper articles concerning the indictments of Rep. Walter R. Tucker III (D-Compton) on charges of bribery and income tax evasion.

Can we feel the breath of fresh air coming in the open window?

I am referring to the fact that there is one opposition candidate to Tucker: Guy Wilson.

Wilson is a Libertarian. That statement should tell the readers plenty about him: Libertarians believe that government at all levels is too large, too expensive, woefully inefficient, arrogant, intrusive and downright dangerous in some respects. Democratic and Republican politicians have created this situation and do not intend to change it.

Wilson does not accept political action committee money or other funds intended to influence him. Newspaper articles are quick to report that Guy Wilson has raised zero dollars for his campaign. Libertarians have no special interest funds; Libertarians recognize individual responsibilities that we all share to preserve our American heritage of liberty, personal responsibility and freedom in accordance with our Bill of Rights.

Wilson is an honest, sincere working man (seaman) who has integrity. As a working man, he understands the needs and concerns of his constituency. As a Libertarian, he believes that government is best which governs least. As an African American, he is well aware of the problems faced by his community and will be active in developing solutions.

So, instead of decrying the situation in the 37th Congressional District, where the citizens have no choice but to reelect a potential problem with a really bad record, rather rejoice that the voters do not have to despair. They can send a strong message to Congress and they can vote for an honest candidate, sensitive to their concerns--Guy Wilson.

These fortunate citizens of the 37th Congressional District have the great opportunity to vote for Guy Wilson for Congress. Try it folks, you'll love it.
