A proposal to my Republican friends

If the federal budget is one cent smaller in 2012 than it is in 2010, I’ll register Republican and run for precinct chair.

If not, y’all register Libertarian.
“Ah, but Dave, you crafty fellow, two years isn’t enough time to make a difference,” you say? Then how about four years? I’ll make the same deal.
Still not enough? Is eight sufficient? Ten? How many? You pick the time frame.
I’ll make the same deal.
Any takers? If not, why not? You claim to believe that the GOP believes in smaller government, yet given the chance to tell me how long a time frame is sufficient for them to make good on this belief, you still do not have faith in them to deliver on this claim?
And you call Libertarians unrealistic? Oh, the irony.

The Strategy – A Long Term Approach to Freedom

Rather than simply trying to pick the best candidates, I see the goal as trying to encourage more people to consider and look into (for lack of a better term) *Libertarian ideals.  This is not as a ploy to get new Libertarian registrations (which I don’t see as bad), but rather to get more people thinking with a “Libertarian” mindset.  If a majority of individuals begin to adopt three quarters (or more) of the Libertarian argument, we will no doubt see a change in what happens in our government.  Could you imagine if most of the people in this country demanded free trade, fewer regulations, less spending and taxes and an increase in individual rights across the board?

I see an informed majority demanding real change in government as the only way to truly bring freedom back to America.  Legislators often do what the majority demands.  It is not as though many don’t want universal health care; the problem is that too many do.  And too many vote over and over again to tax and spend the money of the so-called “rich”.  The only way I see us ever getting on the course intended by our Founding Fathers is for liberty-minded folks to become the majority.  We need to inform people, and to encourage them to keep an open mind.  But we must first start with ourselves.  We, the lovers of freedom and justice, must keep our minds open and learn all we can.  To assume we know it all is a dangerous thought.  It makes us close our minds to new ideas and can dampen our efforts at influencing others.

We must be the advocates of freedom, and weave our fight into our daily routine.  Over dinner, drinks or casual conversation, we can mention (without malice) things others may not know and ask their opinion.  These ideas must get into everyday conversations around the country, and those who truly wish to defend our individual liberties must find a way to do so.

To help start the process of getting new ideas into the mainstream, Liberty on the Rocks has created (super cool) informational stickers.  These are the first two, and there will be more to follow.  They will eventually come in the form of t-shirts.  We hope this helps to get the conversation started, even if it only plays a small part.

By purchasing one or more stickers today, you will not only help to start the conversation by proudly displaying your stickers, but you will also help to fuel the nationwide Liberty on the Rocks movement.  All proceeds go to Liberty on the Rocks – both its educational efforts and the expansion of its social networks on a national scale.   Get yours today!

*I use the word Libertarian because it’s the best way, in my opinion, to sum up the idea of an “advocate for liberty and justice”.  I am not for or against any party. I am an advocate of principle.
