Duke University’s independent student newspaper ran an article yesterday about Sean Haugh, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in North Carolina in 2014.
The article quote Haugh as urging students to be involved in the political process: “Not only does your voice matter, but we have to have it. The system is totally dependent on citizen involvement. Here in America, the citizens are supposed to own government, not the other way around. The government is supposed to work for us.”
Other topics touched upon included US foreign policy, the militarization of police, marriage equality, marijuana, and, of course, the usual horse race discussion. “The whole spoiler notion is backwards because the Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians don’t own anyone’s votes. The individual voter owns their votes,” Haugh was quoted as saying.
Here is the full article.
