Mass. recently got 46% of the vote to abolish the state income tax, which is currently only 5.3%.

Libertarians got 12% and 18% of the vote in the last two U.S. Senate elections.

I'm betting your state can't top three of those four things.

Things are improving in Mass. We've had libertarian-ish Republican governors for over 13 years running...


Well, you are correct in that this state did not vote to abolish the income tax law, but in comparison ours is already low (range of 1.0 - 6.0 percent), and we have no tax on food which I believe Mass still does, along with a number of other taxes that we do not have.
Libertarians always get a good portion of the vote here if there is a candidate.
We also hosted the National Convention this year.
BTW, one the country's top Libertarian radio show hosts has his home base here (Neal Boortz).
If you haven't figured it out yet, I live in Georgia.
