Throwing Off the Shackles

This weekend, we celebrate the audacity of Americans more than two-hundred years ago, as they stood up to the bully in their lives – the King of England.

Today, we are arguably less free than our nation’s founders were under the thumb of the King of England. We have different bullies to deal with but many of the same problems, plus some worse ones.

What would George Washington say about the NSA spying on Americans?

Or civil asset forfeiture?

Or decades of foreign wars?

Or limiting the rights of Americans without due process?

Or imprisoning millions of non-violent Americans?

Liberty is a perennial pursuit. We can never win it outright. It is never permanent. It is constantly being degraded, sometimes gradually, sometimes rapidly.

Each generation must pursue Liberty…must maintain and advance it in whatever ways they can. We must be just as audacious as our founders in or efforts.

Liberty is sacred. It is so easy for that to be forgotten, with out the vigilance of dedicated advocates such as you and me.

What we do is ever important. And it is truly revolutionary today just as it was over two-hundred years ago.

Here in the Libertarian Party, we make it our everyday business to throw off the shackles of power…big and small.

Right now we are working tirelessly to make sure that Govs. Johnson and Weld are on every ballot in American in November.

Libertarian candidates on every ballot in America: Is this not audacious and revolutionary?

Now, this is no small task, as those in power try so hard to keep non-Republican and non-Democratic candidates off ballots. But we are winning. We aren’t there yet, but we are making steady progress, day after day.

Your support of the Libertarian Party makes this critical work possible. You are helping put Libertarians on ballots nationwide and giving Liberty-loving Americans the opportunity to vote for them.

Thank you for being audacious.

Thank you for being revolutionary.

Thank you for being Libertarian.
