You're mistaken. People are openly saying ideas and train of thoughts that I was damn near lynched a few years ago for saying. A decade is a blink of the eye, brother. Yes, I "hoped", but if anyone honestly expected to win any of these elections, you're far more optimistic than I.
The reason for all the frustration is because what we're all trying to do in the end (I don't get into all labels like ya'll do. Libertarian, anarchist, paleo-whatever) is a long term project, but we're up against short term deadlines. You made mention of the debt. It's going to get worse. Socialism, communism....they're going to get worse. And you all want to pass the time fighting with each other.
Dig it. I think Trump is a progressive in hiding, and I'd never vote for him. But hell, I don't are if you or anyone else votes for him. Either way, we're going to get one of two options.I can't change that, so why get worked up over it? The truth of it is real simple. All of the Trump supporters want others to validate their decision, that's the only reason to be defending him here. And the people you're fighting with, feel butt hurt betrayed because instead of 3rd party or not voting, you're supporting "part of the machine". So you all wind up fighting like two boy dogs.
The simple fact is the message of liberty as I think we all collectively see it, won't happen in our lifetimes. It will, at best, be my grandchildren who might get to see it. But I'm also part coon ass, which means I am hard headed in a way most people don't understand. So I don't compromise anything when it comes to candidates, but I have to since I have children (my son who is libertarian, and my daughter who of all things is leaning socialist) watching me. And there's nothing wrong with you or anyone else making a compromise or taking a chance.
Just saying patience. Long term patience. How we each exercise that....that's up to you. But you're not betraying anything, because the outcome is in no way up for grabs. At the same time, people that won't vote for either one won't affect it either, so why get worked up?
