Let’s face it. Advocating for the message of liberty can be downright exhausting and, at times, seem hopeless.
There are so many issues facing our world today; a large majority stemming from government injustice and corruption. These entities are so large, so numerous, and so secretive that voicing your opinion against them often feels hollow.
Even more frustrating is trying to convey liberty-spirited principles to others. I cannot count how many times I have attempted to encourage intelligent and thought provoking conversation or debate, only to throw up my hands out of frustration and give up because I was scoffed at for even trying.
With that being said, thank god for the past few months.
My eyes have truly been opened to the vast and energetic potential that lies within the grass-root liberty movements in America. I have made invaluable friendships with wonderful people who have inspired me to keep pushing forward even when it seems hopeless.
Herein lies the true beauty of freedom and liberty: Voluntary cooperation among individuals to advance a common goal. No coercion, no deceit, and no force.
That point emphasizes the absolute necessity of staying positive; cooperation and advancement could not be possible if pessimism was the focal point. Feeling powerless and “uncool” in advocating for what you believe in will result in just that. The best thing any individual can do is to be unashamed and unapologetic in their beliefs, and to push forward with a confidence that would make Barack Obama himself blush.
I can say this with certainty because I have recently lived by this maxim and have seen results. I want to take this opportunity to thank the following people from the bottom of my heart: All the good people over at the Tenth Amendment Center, Michael Lofti, Mike Maharrey, Senator Stacey Campfield, and many others (you know who you are!).
These individuals have reminded me that I am not alone in my belief in liberty. In fact, I have never been alone, and you don’t have to be either. Live every day with positive intentions and love in your heart; the revolution of liberty has just begun, and the future looks brighter than ever.
