Celebrity Libertarian: Melanie

        Melanie, the world-renowned pop/folk singer-songwriter, has declared
that she's a libertarian and a Libertarian Party supporter. And she's done
it in a very public way: in the liner notes to her new greatest-hits CD,
"Ring the Living Bell: A Collection."

   She writes:

        "I'm a total Libertarian, and I am not a Democrat, a Socialist, or a
Republican Vote Libertarian, [and] don't worry about wasting your vote."
She also had this to say about government: "Totally leave us alone and
we'll be better off."

        Melanie first came to public prominence when she appeared at the
original Woodstock in 1969. Among her biggest hits: "Brand New Key," "Lay
Down (Candles in the Rain)," and "The Nickel Song." The Emmy-winning
singer/songwriter has released 25 albums. "Brand New Key," a huge hit in
the early '70's, was featured on the soundtrack of the 1998 hit film
"Boogie Nights."
