Economic Man Threatens to Leave You Alone if Elected

This one is mainly for readers residing in that glorious water source for California commonly known as Colorado. In case you are not aware of it yet, Roger “Economic Man” Barris, an occasional contributor to this site, is running for Congress in Colorado on a Libertarian Party ticket. We will briefly explain why you should vote for Roger, but first two pictures:

Roger and his family.

With that out of the way, why should you vote for him? We have looked at a number of races out of curiosity and we were struck by the fact that all too often voters have nothing but a choice between “lesser” or “worse” evils.

No matter which candidate one chooses, it is already crystal clear beforehand that he or she is going to do stuff one doesn’t want them to do (such as shilling for more war, demanding higher taxes, inventing new regulations, help ferrying money to assorted crony-socialists, etc.).

Most importantly, it is all about wanting to boss other people around, about telling them how they should live their lives and – insult to injury – doing so with money they themselves are actually coerced into providing involuntarily. It is a completely absurd set-up, one rightly feels like an idiot in the voting booth.

At best one can hope to deflect a candidate one perceives to have the very worst ideas, but as a rule one cannot prevent bad ideas as such from being pursued. Voters invariably end up as involuntary accomplices smoldering with righteous resentment.

It is this particular point which you will find to be the most important  distinguishing characteristic of Roger’s candidacy: contrary to the competition, he at worst threatens to leave everybody completely alone. Yes, you heard that right.

Not only doesn’t he have any desire to boss people around, au contraire, his main mission in Congress will be to generally weaken the ability of members of the ruling class to do so. The reduction and devolution of government power are right at the top of his list of priorities.

Here are Roger’s most important policy goals in a nutshell:

  1. End the Wars – Defend America, Don’t Police the World;
  2. Cut Taxes and Spending;
  3. Make the Federal Government so Small, No-One Fights Over It.

That sure sounds good to us – and what he has to say about other issues definitely meets with our approval as well (for example his stance on the drug war and the judicial system).

 

Important Links:

Here is a link to Roger’s main web page Barris4Congress.com.

We urge you to also take a look at his Facebook Page, where you will find numerous short videos in which he discusses his views on a wide range of issues. As an aside, we believe these videos to be of interest to everybody. Regardless of where one resides, Roger’s ideas for better governance are worth hearing.

Conclusion

We are obviously quite late in posting this endorsement, but then again, these days elections are often decided by independents sitting on the fence who are known for taking their sweet time making up their mind.

And regardless of whether a few more citizens of Colorado can be persuaded to add to Roger’s tally after coming across this post, the very least we can hope for is that more people will be exposed to sound political ideas by listening to what Roger has to say.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.
