In government, the Libertarian Party is a clear third alternative which has been gaining steam, as noted in the 2016 Presidential Election, where Gary Johnson received 3.25% of the vote, a large number in general election measures. Is there a place in politics?
We see our individual liberties usurped today more than ever before. The evidence is all around us, from public surveillance to speed limits to strange laws such as mandatory vehicular inspection and tinted windows to foreign intervention to state laws being forwarded to the Supreme Court. Other examples include the lack of sound currency, income taxes, public social security, and warrantless search and seizure by the FBI. In other words, our liberties, both civil and fiscal, are half of what they were a century prior.
I’m often asked how we can maintain government with such low taxation. Well, that’s the point. We have far too many unnecessary government regulations as it is, to the point where we need a license just to operate a simple small business, for example. It’s outrageous.
People are afraid of freedom. We live in a country where people claim they’re proud to be free but are continually demanding security over freedom. I consent freedom has a light and dark side. So does nature. And so does security. Everything has a yin and a yang. There’s light and dark in everything, including ourselves. That being said, I’m taking freedom of security and running with it.
Today, I’m looking to fight the Two-Party system at all costs, actively educating others about the benefits of libertarianism, which I believe our Founders would’ve been, as it follows the same path as the Enlightenment, in which we have right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. In other words, we have the right to live, be free, and pursue our dreams like madmen, so long as they harm no other.
Why is it, when America turns around and conducts the same tactics upon their subjects, the most recent being Syria with Iran on deck, that it's okay and is dubbed "humanitarian" and "liberation?"
Think I’m off my rocker? I’m cackling while I “hide behind my keyboard living a sheltered existence.” It’s what we’re going to be talking about and I can’t wait to educate the public on my findings.
