Why I’m Running

Jonathan Dine for US Senate

Hi my name is Jonathan Dine and I am the Libertarian candidate for the United States Senate in the state of Missouri. I’ve decided to run for this office because I believe our country is in real need of a better representation of the people. Career politicians have become too secluded in Washington D.C. and have forgotten what life is like outside of politics.

I want to make sure you understand that I am not a politician; however I am well educated in many of the political issues which face this country today. I have created this site to inform you of my views. So you can make an educated decision on who will best represent your voice in our government.

I believe the answer to America’s political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: A dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom that marks this country above all others.

Like many Americans I’m tired of the constant fighting of the republican and democrats. Their US vs Them mentality is hostile and counterproductive. Beating the other team has become more important than finding the solutions to Americas problems.

America is  on the brink of a fiscal disaster  and both parties are to blame with their reckless tax, borrow and spend polices. Neither party is serious about Balancing the Budget, restoring your civil liberties, or lowering your tax burden. The Democratic and Republican politicians have created the status quo and do not intend to change it.

I do not see real leadership qualities or a devotion to freedom and the Constitution from either of my opponents who are running for this office. I see empty promise makers ready to march in step with their own party’s agenda.

I believe we need more ordinary Americans to stand up and take an active role in government. I understand the vices of our government mainly because I am NOT a part of it. I see life from the ground level. I don’t look down to see it or have to ask anybody about it. I live it and feel it everyday. I have an open mind and will listen to the people of this state.  When I vote on Bills, or propose legislation I’ll remember my life experiences and the people I represent. Not a party or a lobbyist.

Its time to stop voting for the lesser of two evils, now is the time to Vote Libertarian. I truly believe the political system would be better off if more acceptance and credibility were attributed to Libertarians and independents. Although third party candidates won’t necessarily come up with completely new stances, they are more likely to represent a combination of views.

Americans deserve better than we’re getting from Washington. When those in Congress bankrupt America, wage wars without end,  and insist on continuing the failed war on drugs.  I feel voters are tired of the same old politics and I think Americans are looking for an alternative to the two party system.

Supporting my candidacy means supporting a drastically lower tax level,  smaller government and more personal freedom across the board. We do not need career politicians telling us who we can love, how much money money we can keep,  or what we can do with our own body.  I will fight to keep the democrats out of your wallet and the republicans out of your bedroom.

Be Libertarian with me,

Jonathan Dine
