    Most of us are probably already on some list just for being on this website or for some other reason. That's not going to stop me from sending a snarky correspondence to my representative/senator. At the end of the day, at least I'll be able to say I tried, for whatever that's worth. Telling my "elected" politicians to quit bombing brown children, quit giving handouts to billionaires or corrupt Ukraine, leave guns alone, etc. does have some satisfaction.

    He's controlled opposition! /s That was always a popular one. It's a possibility but I find it unlikely. Although, I became more skeptical of him whenever he went on Piers Morgan years ago and acted like a complete fool... He's had a lot of predictions that have come true, so give him that.

    I agree. They're incredibly stupid and usually fail to capitalize on moments such as now to get out the vote. They are out of touch and that's what pushed a lot of people to stay Dem or go Indy. And MAGA people thinking there will be a red wave are stupid. The Biden admin will trot out student loan forgiveness at the most opportune time. They'll run on the abortion platform which will nab most women, and they'll keep nailing Trump up on the wall. In time, with full majorities of leftist Dems, we'll start seeing moves against the Supreme Court to stack it or make modifications, more socialist spending, etc. This is why if anyone wants a chance to fight, join the GOP, turn it to liberty and promote liberty candidates. We did get Massie, Amash, and Rand in with those strategies which is far more than the Libertarian Party can say.

    I've been reaching out to my representatives and senators lately a bit more than I usually have in years past. And when I craft my messages I simply don't care what comes out. I'm pretty much going in unfiltered (with respect and not using coarse language, of course) when sending them correspondences now. It's fun, I guess?

    People can try to deny all they want but the truth right now, in this moment in time, is the GOP holds more people and views like ours than the Democrats. The Democrats are going full leftist with control of culture (media, entertainment, etc.) and we're seeing the societal decay because of this. I'll go stand with some MAGA dorks over Antifa/BLM/Socialist/AOC/LGBTQXYZ Mafia types 8 days out 7. I may be holding my nose while standing there, but you understand the greater point by now.

    Because I hate seeing people who are just like me spin their tires into something that won't get them anywhere (that irony isn't lost on me with this GOP strategy either... I get it). That's all. If I can get 5 libertarians to reconsider spending their time and effort into the LP/MC and instead into the GOP (which dominates where I live, so there's much more strategic value there), then I'll call that a success. But, in truth, the LP and MC will turn into another fan club, issue fancy press releases that get all 10,000 people excited, and the GOP and Dems will still have the floor. Edit: I know it's not going to be any use debating with you so please keep doing your thing and I'll do mine. The LP is not the answer. The LP will never be popular. Liberty is not popular. Politics is power and libertarians (as a whole) don't want to lord over others. Do you see that contradiction?

    No, I don't think voting Trump is the whole answer, either. Politics is power. The LP has none. Why divest time, money, and resources to the LP at this point in time? I'm tired of seeing that attempted as it's a complete waste of time. The Mises Caucus people (God bless them, I do wish them the best) are turning the LP into their fan club now. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. It beats what was going on. But even with the MC in charge... THE LP HAS NO POWER. The LP can't do jack squat with politics. They'd be better off trying to influence Republicans like Ron Paul wanted us to do but we failed to follow up on it in a meaningful way. There was one solid attempt with the TEA Parties (and those were co-opted) and after that, everyone took their ball and went home. Meanwhile, neocons and globalists got in nice and cozy with both the GOP and Dems. It seems like these exact conversations pop up weekly or monthly on this forum and within liberty/libertarian circles. It's so dang old and I'm even typing all of this out with a look of disgust on my face (not directed at you, by the way) because I know most of our methods and plans are futile in this system. But, I do think tides can be turned or delayed with enough political force at certain levels. We've seen it happen. I think I'm just going to try and influence locally as much as possible and vote for the most liberty-oriented candidates on the ballots at local and state levels. Federal level elections are pretty much lost for our types. There's been some success with Amash, Massie, and Rand, but we haven't had much else since them.

    In bold right there is the hard truth a lot of us need to learn to swallow. If the LP 10Xs their enrollment over the next 2-4 years, guess what? They're still many measures below Independent party numbers. I wish people would see this and understand it.

    It's as the OP put it: the GOP is simply counting on Biden's unpopularity to win instead of doing a double pronged attack. They are incredibly stupid and have been for decades. One thing I know right now is that whenever I vote it won't be a for a Democrat and I will be voting for the furthest right/most liberty oriented names on the ballots. And libertarians trying to be cool and saying "I'm not voting for the lesser of two evils" or one of its many variations refuse to provide adequate options outside of that. And no, joining the LP and "educating" people ain't cutting it in case you haven't seen. People have underestimated the number of Democrats in this country. They dominate literally every large city. They won't be turned for anything and I've seen every single one say they will proudly vote for Biden over Trump again in 24 if those are the tickets.

    It's rooted in white patriarchal supremacy from an era where gender was black and white. From the letters to the original hypotheses, etc. And we simply need to understand that how we feel today doesn't conform to that. Feelings trump facts in these here 2020s. That's what they'll tell us, anyway. And most of them will genuinely believe that themselves.

    Stopped reading half way through because the author then goes on to list out a bunch of political points that he/she just spent the first half railing against. The only thing that came to my mind regarding changing policy is that you're not going to fool D.C. by putting a trojan horse costume on and saying "we're not liberty oriented, we're just here to change policy." And ultimately, you change policy by changing the culture. This is something the so called "post-libertarians" have been trying to say for the last 2-3 years: you want real change? Change the culture. Become an influencer. Get rich, own your own companies, start parallel institutions, have big families, don't be 100% reliant on the existing systems. Once you're there and you have some clout, whip it out and start changing the culture.

    I was thinking about this last night and remembered someone had posted a thread about it. What are we supposed to think when he see this and then see the so called "leaders" of this world? They are all evil and hubris driven. Perhaps some are truly well-intended but far too often those good intentions lead to ruin of some sort. So, does God appoint leaders? If so, is he trying to show us the folly of man? Is he trying to show us that having faith in man and not Him will always lead to the same outcomes? I mean, Joe Biden... God appointed this guy, eh? Brings up so many questions...

    Great post for this conversation. I was looking around for things pertaining to this conversation and came across the following, which I think deserves its own thread but I may save that for another day. My synopsis of it (so far, although there is a part two also linked below that I haven't read yet) is that Christians really have no earthly nation and are wanderers and have to figure out how get by within different parameters. Getting involved in politics is actually kinda opposite of the point in many respects, etc. I thought of your post when I read this yesterday. Take a read of these (at least part one); I'm curious what your thoughts are. https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/every-thought-captive/2022/04/08/the-mathetian-option-part-one/ https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/every-thought-captive/2022/07/17/the-mathetian-option-part-two/ Righto, that's the point of this thread: to discuss that point exactly.

    Bolded the most important part here. 2020-today has perhaps an immeasurable amount of evidence that proves this true. And I'm done arguing with libertarians here, there, and everywhere who still want to say "everyone's a libertarian, they just don't know it!" or "liberty is popular, we have to spread the message!" No, those things are NOT true. We have far more people who like being bent over and rammed by the State because they want modern comforts over freedom. They want perceived "security" over responsibility. And it's stuff like this that will make me continue saying libertarians voting for libertarian candidates polling at 2-5% is a wasted vote in most cases when you legitimately have marxist democrats vs. dumb republicans. My vote will go to the dumb republican because there's hope they can be crafted a little. The marxist? Not a chance. They're evil and know very well what they're doing and how much they can get away with, usually.

    I posted this in the "Trump 2024" thread currently on page 2. Same applies: Look, if it's him and Biden again, I'll toss my vote to Trump but it will be while holding my nose. No Democrat, with the exception of maybe Gabbard, will ever have my vote at this rate. In truth, if the GOP wants to sniff the White House again, they'll run DeSantis and let the chains off of him and tell him to go all in and go all for it, say what you want, we don't care. The media won't care what DeSantis has to say either way. They'll spin everything so it doesn't really matter. The GOP, however, is always about 20 years too late in their strategies. They need to embrace chaos and bulldogs, which is what they fought the entire time against Trump. That came back to bite them, and we, the American people, big time. Say what you will about Trump - that he was a pawn, that he's one of them, etc. I'm not sure I'd be able to disagree, but for whatever his part was, he did it well enough that they're still gunning for him and his supporters. The regime doesn't want the "deplorables" around. And whether he's the acting face for them or not, there's something about the Trump presidency that sure seems like it wasn't "supposed" to happen. The Deep State (Swamp) was exposed during his presidency. We know its there now without a doubt. Edit: having said all of this, we've seen the presidency does a matter a little over these last several years. However, our time and efforts are better spent fighting local and state level fights more than anything else. Maximize the "power" at those levels instead of relying on D.C.

    Are there guarantees these people don't get off at the first stop along the way, like say in Oklahoma? Are there guarantees these people don't just get a ticket back to TX? I like the supposedly symbolism behind this, but I think it's ultimately silly if there really isn't anything truly hard behind it.

    Yea, who really knows? The man is completely incoherent. It's super sad that our late night comedians haven't picked up on this and run skit after skit about it like they've done over the littlest of things for Republican presidents and politicians. And no, of course I'm not a GOP sympathizer. Just calling out the leftist court jesters that are plastered all over our televisions for their complete lack of consistency and integrity.

    Show them forgiveness and mercy? Provide the other cheek? What about when children become involved? Didn't Jesus tell his disciples to leave the children alone and allow them to be near Him? While I won't put words in Jesus's mouth, I also can't see how Jesus is fine with these perversions aimed towards children. The last part of the article as quoted below is perhaps the best response here. So, I'll agree with you in that we should still be respectful, be righteous, and not so quick to judge (although I do that all of the time, especially on here towards leftist hordes who have forsaken everything). We do that until there is no where else to run to, then we need to be as unified as we can and begin pushing back nonviolently. That time was decades ago but no one took the threat seriously. The best time to start pushing back then, is now.

    Christians, right wing folks, etc. have mostly let the left take over the culture. We've let "that" side run roughshod over our existing institutions, universities, entertainment industries, etc. These are indisputable facts. We have been and are still paying for those decades of sitting back in the corner. Now is the time to rise up and bring back righteousness in society in the bubbles that we are able to influence. Start small. Remember, leftists want you either "re-educated" or dead. They think we are scum of the earth as they reign above us with their self-perceived and self-diagnosed high IQs. It's time to press back for truth and light in this darkness they are spreading draped in human ego. Original Link: https://worldeventsandthebible.com/live-at-peace-with-all-men

    I saw this last week. It's a good message to all Christians but definitely (and most importantly) their neutered leaders. The churches need to relight the fire of righteousness. They've been kowtowing to the greater culture and have lost their authority because of it.
