If you are not free to choose wrongly and irresponsibly, you are not free at all. – Jacob Hornberger.
Every four years, voters in the United States are given a choice between two major party candidates in the Presidential election.Â We are often told that either of these candidates are the â€œmainstreamâ€ candidates and if you want your vote to count, you need to choose between either one of the two major party candidates who have a â€œchanceâ€ at â€œwinningâ€.
However, for true supporters of limited government and personal liberty, this is often a choice made in vain.Â If you truly believe in a limited, decentralized government which protects both economic and personal liberties and rights, during most elections there isnâ€™t a major party candidate that will generally fit your values.Â You have a choice between the Democratic Party, of which too many members wish to violate your economic rights and liberties, and the Republican Party, of which too many members wish to violate your personal rights and liberties.Â This is not a judgment of individuals in either party.Â Most individual members are doing what they think is right.Â This is a judgment on those than run the major parties.Details
