New Radio Ad

As soon as new money comes in, we put it to work. We raised money at last night's bean dinner, and today we cut an ad to run on Indy's WXNT 1430-am. It will run once an hour during daytime programming- Abdul in the Morning, Neal Boortz, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity.

For those who can't stand O'Reilly or Hannity, or perhaps question the wisdom of heavy advertising on clearly Republican shows, observe the script:

My name is Mike Kole. I am the Libertarian candidate for Secretary of State.

People often tell me they like a great deal of what the Libertarian Party stands for, but are concerned about wasting their votes.

Let me tell you- there are a lot of wasted votes every November.

If you voted Republican looking for lower taxes and smaller government, you have wasted your vote.

You gave your vote. Did you get your results?

You might have expected them to deliver on smaller government and lower taxes, since they have had majorities in the Indiana House and Senate, plus the governor’s office. And yet, they failed to deliver.

Elect Libertarians. We will deliver.

Libertarians are passionate about smaller government and lower taxes. Republicans on the other hand, are passionate about holding power. They’re happy to collect your vote without delivering.

Why put up with that treatment? Send a message. Vote

Vote for Libertarian Mike Kole.

Paid for and authorized by the Committee to Elect Mike Kole, Ken Johnson Treasurer.

I'm very pleased with this ad. I have wanted to tackle the wasted voted syndrome in my ads for almost two years. This is a satisfying result!

Sounds great! Republican politicians love big government, but the conservative voters don't...

Excellent, republicans and democrats really don't have any disagreements about Big Government, just who will be running it.

As power has squeezed principle out of the debate, it's nice to reintroduce the concept in a different wrapper.

If neither of the two major parties represent you, your vote is already wasted. They don't have to pay attention to you as long as they believe you'll hold your nose and vote for them anyway.

Thank God for a safety valve.

Hope you run some ads up here in Fort Wayne!

Mike- They're talking about you and your ad on the Indy Star message boards.

They call your ad negative. Perhaps it is a touch, though I don't see you using your opponents name, or anybody's name in a smear, so it can't be called dirty. I don't mind it. You have to separate yourself from the other guys somehow.

Oh, and that pinhead 'Nicmart' is trashing you again for not being Libertarian enough. That's a tiresome act he has, like I have to tell you.
