Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in Michigan, Scotty Boman, is attempting to mount one of the more active statewide campaigns of 2008, and prominent libertarians — both in and outside of Michigan — are taking notice.
Here is what nationally known libertarian activist Starchild said in endorsing Scotty Boman:
As a fellow libertarian activist and Ron Paul supporter I’m proud to endorse Scotty for U.S. Senate. The people of Michigan are lucky to have the opportunity to vote for a candidate this committed to restoring the Bill of Rights and helping keep the country from moving further down the road toward a police state. Like Ron Paul, he is clearly someone who is in this for the long haul and will not sell out your freedom for money and power.
Jason Gatties, a fellow Michigander, said this:
It gives me great pleasure to offer my endorsement of Scotty Boman for U.S. Senate. Carl Levin is an enemy of Liberty. Scotty Boman will help return real freedom to this country.
Steve Newton went beyond an endorsement and wrote a full-length article at his blog, Delaware Libertarian:
I keep trying to make the point here that there are credible Libertarian candidates out there doing the heavy lifting of trying to turn this into a real political party.
Another one is Scotty Boman, running for US Senate against Carl Levin in Michigan.
Boman is a long-time Libertarian activist, seeking to build on Ron Paul’s momentum, and his positions are strongly in favor of human liberty: get out of Iraq, non-interventionist foreign policy, end the war on drugs, end domestic surveillance, and get the government out of the marriage business.
Other Boman endorsers LFV readers may be familiar with include Jake Porter and Darcy G. Richardson.
Boman has also won the endorsements of several Michigan county coordinators for the Ron Paul for President campaign, as well as the Ron Paul’s statewide coordinator for Michigan, Leslie Roszman.
