The Libertarian Patriot
If you are to believe the LSM and other sources of information, sometimes it feels like we are the irate, tireless minority in the battle for liberty that Samuel Adams spoke about. Generally, when the topic of politics comes up in polite conversation it is one of us against the many; some of whom agree with us in principle, but believe that most of our opinions are on the fringe. As persuasive as we can make our argument against Leviathan and the need to return to the limited government views of the Founders, it is difficult to be the lone voice of sanity in a discussion.
For that reason it is refreshing when you randomly come across other like minded Patriots...
For the last few days, which also explains the lack of posting on The Libertarian Patriot, I was attending an industry conference as a representative for the company I work for. During one of the social gatherings after the day's events the topic of politics came up and a fellow attendee began to educate myself and the other person in the conversation about the virtues of limited government, the catastrophic direction our economy was headed in and the depths that Leviathan has gone to in order to secure it's hold over us all.
I was floored; another like minded Patriot in my midst.
When this fine Patriot, Andrew, had finished saying his peace, the other gentleman in the conversation, Matt, said that he sort of agreed but didn't buy into the argument of the nefarious steps that Leviathan has taken against the American people. It was at this point that I weighed in to reinforce what Andrew had just stated and Andrew was just as surprised, as I was initially, that he had come across another like minded Patriot.
As the conversation progressed, both Andrew and I were able to work in tandem to further the cause of liberty and add another member to our ranks, as I ran into Matt the next day at the conference and he said that he had Googled some of the information that Andrew and I had given him and he was amazed at how much he was unaware of. He appeared ready to join the fight.
So, take solace my fellow Patriots, you are not alone. There are others out there that may not be active in the movement; but they are out there. When we find each other we must band together to further our cause, even if it is only one convert at a time.
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds. - Samuel Adams
