I don’t just want freedom for Americans. I want true freedom for all human beings everywhere. I want everyone to be free and to have the opportunity to really live. I don’t just want it for my people, I want it for all people.
You know when you feel alive, really alive. It’s when you’re feeling – feeling anything from joy, to love, to confusion. It’s when you’re in motion. Either in motion in your life, moving from the here and now into your next adventure, or even just exercising. Living is the opposite of being stagnant. It’s allowing the change and moving with it, welcoming it. It’s never giving into fear. It’s walking into your fear and the feeling that follows. It’s following your dreams, becoming, it’s recognizing your worth, it’s learning something new, it’s achieving. Really living is taking responsibility for yourself, your actions, and your life.
Really living boils down to two things: freedom and feeling
Without these two things, you’re not really living. You can’t be. You’re a human, born free – hopefully. This is where the idea of Libertarianism and the Liberty movement come in. There are Libertarian “think tanks” where people sit and imagine what life will be like in 300 or 1,000 years. Will Liberty be available to more people? Will more people be having the opportunity to live a free, abundant life? Hopefully, the answer is “yes.” But before the world takes off in this direction, a few things have to happen. The oppressive governments of third world countries have to fall. The facade of Socialism has to be exposed. “Pre-emptive” war will have to become a thing of the past. But then slowly, Liberty will spread, and ideally everyone will have the opportunity to really live.
The only thing in the way of Liberty for All, is the government
When the government does any more than simply provide for the common defense, it becomes oppressive. People need to live. It’s all they’ve ever needed to do. The government doesn’t need to provide for anyone, pay anyone’s way, take money from one person to give it to another, spy on us, censor us, or control us. It is in our nature to take care of each other. We don’t need the government to do it for us. Just think – how did you feel when you heard about the Tsunami, the earth quake in Haiti, or of the folks in New Orleans after Katrina? Yeah, you wanted to help, to send money. And you probably did. This is how most folks are. When someone is truly in need, we want to help. The government just gets in the way. They are slow, inefficient, wasteful, and usually incompetent. They do a whole lot more harm than good – mostly by creating people who are in need. But they can’t tell you this, or you won’t re-elect them. Luckily in our country, we are the government, and we need to get the government out of our lives. Now, does this guarantee your unbridled joy? Heavens no. That, my dear, is up to you – to what you do, to how to respond to life, to the decisions you make. After all, with freedom comes responsibility.
I’m being brutally honest. Does it mean I probably won’t get elected? What do you think? I only want to go to Washington to get the government out of our lives. Our executive branch has grossly overstepped its Constitutional bounds and I aim to cut it off at the knees. We are responsible. And it feels like a million bucks to be responsible; it means you’re free. Let’s go take our freedom back. Vote Libertarian this November.
