Re: Elections (philosophical question I’ve been wrestling with)
Hey y’all. I’m relatively new to the sub, so if this has been talked about to death, or if I’m just a simpleton, please downvote to oblivion.
Here’s the premise: Candidate A (R) is in favor of n% increase in the size and scope government (read that as higher taxes, additional bureaucracies, new laws, new wars… whatever.). And B (D) is on favor of (n 1)% increase.
Given that, is it defensible for a libertarian to vote for candidate A and still feel like they’re fighting the good fight (or something)? Isn’t the right thing to do, considering our shared principles, to push back on the expansion of government in the most effective way possible?
I’d like to keep this vague and entirely philosophical because DT throws a wrench into, well, everything. Look forward to hearing y’all’s thoughts… thanks!
