Most Wisconsinites are oblivious to the monopoly of power exercised by the Democrats and Republicans because they’ve been conditioned to believe that we have always had a "two-party system." However, Libertarian candidate for the 85th Assembly seat, Jim Maas, points out that many of Wisconsin's problems didn't just happen; they were created by both old parties.
Maas explains that Libertarian candidates base campaigns on principles that are fiscally conservative and socially tolerant, placing him on middle ground between Democrat Mandy Wright and Republican Pat Snyder. Maas has no plan for direct mail, robo calls, or media buys, and therefore is not raising campaign funds. Instead, he asks supporters to donate to the WISDOM interfaith 11 X 15 campaign to reduce excessive and unnecessary incarceration of Wisconsin citizens to 11,000 by 2015. This would be an example of a socially tolerant, fiscally conservative policy.
Maas also ran for the Assembly in 2010. In 2012 he will be joined on the ballot by Libertarians Joe Kexel, running for US Senate, and Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray on the presidential ticket.
