As the “Libertarian” candidate for governor, nobody really takes her seriously… that is, until they really try and understand what she has to say.
She sought out area Libertarians and attended party meetings on health care. In 1995, Howell went to her first Massachusetts Libertarian convention. She read works by Harry Browne and David Bergland, Libertarian Party leaders and presidential candidates. The next year, she again attended the party’s state convention and this time, the broader Libertarian philosophy clicked.
*I saw a pattern,” she said. ”Big government didn’t work – whether it was guns or health care or education – it just didn’t work.*
I think I’ve seen the same pattern. The more government we have, the less we have.
