I’m certainly not immune to worry over the election or the fate of the country, but let me pose a question for stressed-out liberals. Why do you continue to vote to make the federal government and the leaders at its helm an ever-more present and powerful part of every part of our lives when you know there’s a chance every four years a guy you won’t like will be at the helm? If it’s going to stress you out this much who has the levers of power, perhaps you should work toward making the levers less powerful?

This last part is FANTASTIC !!!

First time I've heard this concept articulated in this way.

Yup. Thats a home run. They want the feds to have more and more power, but are crapping themselves at the thought of a Republican getting their hands on that power.

This is a concept behind the “little L libertarian” wing of the Republican party that the big L liberals cannot seem to comprehend...

We Libertarian Republican are wary and cynical because we see the world in a realistic light, and know that not all the time will there be a “benevolent king” type figure in power. so what do we do? We work to keep the government chained down because in reality it is a like a horrible monster that the moment it has you convinced it has a big warm fuzzy belly you would like to snuggle with, and you take it’s chains off, it turns around and uses it’s newly gained freedom to eat you whole.

Mary Katharine Ham is a brilliant young woman. She raises an excellent question here, doesn’t she?
