Don’t Blame Me, I Did the Bare Minimum

True advocates of liberty don’t sulk because their candidate wasn’t elected. They don’t idly gloat in the comfortable knowledge that their guy would have been a better choice. They certainly don’t look three years down the road to see which defender of liberty will come riding to their rescue astride a white horse. Voting, especially at the federal level, is doing the bare minimum. For those who wish to live free from the oppression of an overreaching federal government, there’s real work to be done.
