I believe in Liberty as a political cause and and economic cause and a cultural cause, because before I believed in Liberty, I believed in Love and Truth.
Liberty without Love is hollow.
Orthodoxy reflects a tacit assumption that one’s own understanding of principles is as sacred as the principles, themselves.
So whether particular members of the liberty movement think that the GOP is a lost cause (very few things ever are), it is not going away, and it will continue to dominate half of the political thinking of this nation for the foreseeable future. This brute fact presents members of the liberty movement with a choice between being subject to (victims of?) the evolution of the GOP (on the one hand) or the determinants of the direction of that evolution (on the other).
The liberty movement is united in its belief that America’s two-party system, rather than a single party alone has brought America to crisis. Its members understand that those issues of agreement between the parties are much more important than are any issues on which they traditionally disagree.
