Donald Trump, when asked about his tariff proposals, has famously said, "I'm for free trade, but you have to be smart." Many liberty lovers, when asked about politics, might similarly answer, "Down deep I don't like politics, but I have to be smart."
The freedom impulse inside all of us, easily understood when stated "live and let live," assumes we are all in this together, everyone's life affects everyone else's life. A quote attributed to Jesus Christ in modern day revelation states: "As long as a single slave remains to walk the earth, your release is not complete."
So as much as we might dislike the game of politics, the heroic nature inside all of us will not allow us to chicken out and forfeit the game. But as long as we're going to play the game, we would do well to make ourselves the best players ever, right?
It's time for liberty lovers to quit sabotaging their cause (really sabotaging everyone's true cause) by refusing to make themselves winning players. That's called "being smart." Vow to rise above the level of those liberty lovers who sabotage the cause of liberty.
