Dale Moss, writing for the Louisville Courier Journal, has a nice write-up on Libertarian Candidate Eric Schansberg who is running in the 9th Congressional District. Schansberg is a professor of economics, blogger, libertarian, evangelical Christian, and, on occasion, even comments at these humble environs.
He is polling at 5% in his race which, at the least, means that people are more receptive to his message than they have been in the past. Electoral success is tough for third-party candidates with fewer resources than Republican and Democratic candidates. But, I think the candidacy of Schansberg and those like him are a healthy thing for our democracy because it’s one more way for ideas to get into our public discourse.
