Now more than ever is the time to stand up for Freedom and Liberty and try to gather as many under their flag as possible. One presidential election will not mean the death of libertarian conservatism. Yesterday was one small battle in the fight to keep men free that's been raging for centuries. After one losing battle of the American Revolution, Thomas Paine wrote this:
"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it. The event of yesterday is one of those kind alarms which is just sufficient to rouse us to duty, without being of consequence enough to depress our fortitude. It is not a field of a few acres of ground, but a cause we are defending, and whether we defeat the enemy in one battle, or by degrees, the consequence will be the same."
So please, let this recent battle rouse you to duty but don't let it depress your fortitude.
