Together we are fighting for the ideas of liberty to replace the status quo and advance the liberties of all of man, not just those who have the deepest pockets and best connections.
There is one obstacle that stands in our path, however. This obstacle is much closer to home than most realize. This obstacle is ourselves. We have divided ourselves, and I fear that the defeat of Ron Paul for the GOP nomination is only going to accelerate the destructive affect of this divide. We have those who want to change the Republican party from within, and then we have those who want to support and advance the Libertarian party. These two strategies both have the same end goal of liberty, however they are pointlessly butting heads more and more with each passing day.
We found an open-minded philosophy, and we sullied this philosophy with immaturity and petty arguments over tactics. We have become arrogant in our thinking, and are beginning to alienate those who should be our greatest allies. We have advanced the liberty movement arguably further than it has been in over 200 years, and yet I see that we have the potential to accomplish one of two dreadfully opposite outcomes:
- One: We work together to advance the liberty movement to the point where every politician in office, from the local to the federal level, is a principled and effective supporter of liberty.
- Two: We stagnate the liberty movement more so than any establishment politician could ever dream of accomplishing and effectively decimate any chances of political change in the country.
How we could stagnate the liberty movement who has observed movement infighting. We slash each other's ideas, and simultaneously destroy each other's confidence in liberty.
This is not why we all joined this movement. We joined to bring real change to this country. We joined to save our society.
