One thing I believe to be true is that most Americans who have a political philosophy, be it Republican or Democratic, have a passion for their country and they believe their political philosophy to be the correct one.
Except for teabaggers and the Christian Right, who are just stupid and bigoted and spitefully anti-Jesus and mean. We will not count them in this scenario I’m laying out here today. You’re welcome.
But, there is a third choice! There has always been a third choice. We can adopt a philosophy which has endured the ages and has been tried numerous times from the cave man era to the feudal system to the gun-slinging latte’ drinkers at Starbucks. Yes! Take a scary trip with me to a land of fantasy and never-ending self-gratification; a semi-anarchical Libertarian ‘Literal Land’
I’m sure you’ve heard people say, “if republicans hate government so much, why are they running for government office?” There is a reason that this happens—because it’s an actual philosophy. The idea is to seek elected offices and then destroy authority to govern from within. But this is not a new OR a republican idea. It is a Libertarian idea. And this should tell you all you need to know about Libertarians. They live and they die by ‘The Golden Rule’
What has all of this panic about the NSA spying on American citizens gotten us so far? Edward Snowden got punked. Everyone else is out of their minds with paranoia. I’m just saying… ‘NSA Spying Is A-Okay’
