Are you Libertarian?

I like peace, people make much better company, co-workers and innovaters alive than dead.

I don’t like people touching my stuff without my permission.

I really don’t want someone taking my life.

I am glad to learn from mistakes, so let me make them.

I want to benefit from the successes that those mistakes gave me the wisdom to achieve, so let me keep what I earned.

I care about others and I can and will choose when, who and how I help others so don’t patronize me by justifying confiscation with appeals to charity.

Yeah, I’m a Libertarian, join me.

I’m the Libertarian Switzerland

I like to consider myself the Switzerland of Libertarians, in the sense I stay out of entangling alliances and wars within the Libertarian community and associate with everyone in it. (I socialize like I like my foreign policy).

Why? When I first started my libertarian awakening in 2007 it was Ron Paul/Tom Woods/Robert Murphy who were really foundational to me learning and embracing these ideas. In that I did end up reading and learning a lot of Austrian thought ala Mises/Rothbard/Hayek.

Although, I didn’t stop there I read on the literature and ideas of Milton & David Friedman, Robert Nozick, Ayn Rand, Steve Horwitz, George Selgin, Lawrence White, Deidre McCloskey, Arnold Kling, Jeffrey Tucker, Robert Heinlein and so many more great names in the Libertarian and/or economic traditions.

I can’t see myself denigrating any of it cause all of it illuminated me to so many beautiful ideas and helped me form my own current perspective on issues across the board.

In the desire for peace and diplomacy around the world and within the Libertarian community, I really enjoyed this discussion.

Be Proud to be Libertarian

People often times vote R and D out of pure inertia. They don’t agree with the ideas, they don’t know or care who the candidate is, they vote duopoly because they assume that’s how things work. Voting Libertarian is a proactive effort towards something whether an expression of ideas or support for a quality candidate.

Every vote for the LP is a tremendous success because it represents someone is now less apathetic, who connected with a message possibly because of the messenger. A bad habit is being broken, and new habits are closer to being formed.

Every candidate should be tremendously proud of every vote, every donation, and every volunteer. That pride should extend to every voter, every donor and every volunteer because you invested your time and money into something that is building the fundamental change of reshuffling the complacency and defaults that plague society.
