Missouri Libertarian Party Endorses Proposition C

07/18/2010

The Missouri Libertarian Party passed a resolution to endorse Proposition C, the Healthcare Freedom Act, which is a referendum on the August 3rd primary ballot. Proposition C is a first in the nation opportunity for Missouri voters to push back against some of the blatantly unconstitutional provisions of the Obamacare legislation, said Dr. Cisse Spragins, Missouri LP state chair. Besides being unconstitutional, the mammoth 2000+ page bill was rammed through despite the fact that a majority of Americans opposed it. Even those who were initially in favor of the legislation are beginning to understand its negative ramifications, and the fact that it is in many respects corporate welfare for insurance and pharmaceutical companies, Spragins added.

The ballot measure will exempt Missourians from being fined by the IRS for opting not to purchase the mandated minimum health insurance coverage. The measure will also insure that medical practitioners can continue to offer legal services for cash, even if they choose to opt out of providing services paid by government or insurance. The measure has no effect on those who wish to participate in Obamacare. The Obamacare legislation sets a new precedent for the ongoing destruction of our liberties. Never has the government required a person to purchase a product simply by virtue of the fact they exist, Spragins noted. The Missouri LP is proud to endorse Proposition C.

Voters who are Fed Up! with bailouts, stimulus plans that only stimulate bigger government, government takeover of health care, rising unemployment, never-ending foreign wars, and a big brother police state will find common ground with the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party and has been fighting for smaller government since 1971. The Missouri Libertarian Party has been a recognized party in the State, with continuous ballot access since 1992. For further information visit http://www.lpmo.org or call 877-VOTE-4-US.
