Michael McDermott Tells It Like It Is, And New York Is Listening

Michael McDermott debates three of the other candidates for New York Governor, and rather than speaking talking points, he spoke his mind, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Many are saying that Michael WON the debate with his honesty, and his pragmatic approach to breaking the hold of the entrenched parties on New York’s political system and people.

Clearly, Michael McDermott is the candidate who wants the people of the state to be in charge, not the corrupt and self-serving politicians. See for yourself in this uncut, unedited video of the event.

McDermott Team Submits 3200 Petition Pages For New York Gubernatorial Race, McDermott Off And Running!

Via Independent Political Report and Mark Axinn, New York Libertarian Party Chair -

Albany, NY (August 20, 2014)—The Libertarian Party of New York submitted over 30,000 signatures Tuesday to afford New Yorkers an alternative to the failed policies of the two major parties.

Libertarian Party State Chair Mark Axinn commented, “Once again, the Libertarian Party has amassed enough signatures so that voters can choose true freedom-loving candidates this November. Unlike tax-and-spend Democrats and borrow-and-spend Republicans, only the Libertarian Party candidates will actually slow the growth of government.”

New York’s Libertarian ticket will be headed by Long Island realtor Michael McDermott for Governor. Michael is joined by Rochester’s own Chis Edes for Lt. Governor, Queens’ U.S. Navy veteran John Clifton for Comptroller, Manhattan defense lawyer Carl Person for Attorney General, Grant Lally for Congressional District 3 (Long Island), Huntington’s Gigi Bowman for Senate District 5 (Long Island) and Mark Glogowski, Assembly District 139 (western New York), all fellow Libertarians. In all, twelve Libertarians filed for public office in New York State.

Speaking for the 42 year-old Libertarian Party which defends constitutionally limited government, individual freedom, and an end to all prohibition, Gubernatorial candidate Michael McDermott stated, “Now 19 million New Yorkers will not be limited to choosing the lesser of two evils. Instead, New Yorkers can cast their votes for a balanced budget, real growth in private sector jobs, an end to the failed welfare state, and an end to needless suffering caused by inhumane prosecution of victimless crimes.”

The Libertarian Party stands for both personal and economic freedom, and minimal government regulation at all levels. To see the full Libertarian platform, go to http://www.lp.org/platform.
