Baby Steps to Freedom
Most of us have in mind an ideal political system with limited government, freedom, personal responsibility, little or no taxes, etc.; it’s probably not realistic to achieve that anytime soon, but let’s concentrate on what we can control, starting with upcoming primary elections. Followers of this blog might believe that I’m a Republican. That is definitely NOT the case. For decades I’ve watched most of them say great things, then either do the opposite or put up little fight as Leftist authoritarians have taken over every major institution of influence in the country. It’s time to put a stop to that. The primaries are our chance to flush the Mitch McConnell/Lisa Murkowski/Liz Cheney/Mitt Romney wing of the party out of the system so there is a real choice in November midterms instead of the usual “lesser of two evils.”
I’d love realistic libertarian choices, but until then, we have to focus on libertarian-leaning ones. In the past, Republicans and Democrats generally have governed almost exactly the same, despite their rhetoric. However now, there is one area where the difference is stark, and that starts with Covid. Almost all Republican leaders have been pushing an end to restrictions and return to normal, while Democrats have refused to let it go. Most Dems will push fear and control to the bitter end of their political careers. Don’t be fooled by their temporary easing of restrictions. They will try to tap dance a middle ground through the midterms, but expect more reversals as soon as the election is over. Winter or new strains will again be the excuse. Remember, it’s not only “emergency” control they seek to maintain. It’s also an excuse to permanently rig elections so they can maintain the presidency in 2024 and beyond.
Related to that, have you heard one single Democrat speak out against the unprecedented censorship and suppression of civil liberties the past few years, not to mention Justin Trudeau’s dictatorial takeover of Canada? Do you think it’d be any different in the U.S. if we didn’t have a Constitution and checks’n’balances on power? If we can’t elect libertarians, let’s at least focus on ones who will stand up for libertarian principles and work to sway hearts & minds back in favor of freedom. I know plenty of you have given up on elections and political parties, but how has given the Left unchecked power worked out in the past?
