Libertarian flattery

I came away from reading Jilletta Jarvis’s column (Monitor Forum, Nov. 2) with great skepticism. Jarvis is a declared Libertarian candidate for New Hampshire’s next gubernatorial race. Lots of flowery words and flattery. I suspect she may be part of movement toward New Hampshire becoming a “libertarian utopia.”

Jarvis extols individual freedom regarding school choice. That’s fine by me as long as our property taxes are not increased if private schools are given the “right” to public (school) funding. Check out budget shortfalls in Pittsfield and Pembroke already.

On another topic, federal income tax cuts and reform: Trickle? Trickle? Trickle? More like: Tinkle. Tinkle. Tinkle.
