A libertarian thought for a Tuesday morning

To live for the satisfaction of a government of men is the most seductive and evil slavery of all.

It's not Libertarian it's common sense.

Will you run for school board again this year? Eric Smith I would vote for you too. I want to know if you are going to Chris. You two are the best leadership material in this area. Chris I admire how you take a stand even when its very hard. So please run.

I will say this: that so far as leadership quality goes, Eric Smith ABOUNDS with it far more than most people I have ever met. I can't speak for myself, but I absolutely *will* speak that of him.

As for me running again: political office isn't a calling God is putting before me right now. In spite of not winning in 2006 that remains one of the best experiences of my entire life and I'll always be proud of how I ran my campaign. I have also learned very much since then that one *doesn't* necessarily have to be in elected office to try to do good.

The future is made each moment of every day, and by people like you and me. It's time we stopped looking to "the experts" or "the politicians" to make that future for us.

Whether we have a good future or not, like a certain song from my all-time favorite musical puts it, "it's in OUR hands!" :-)
