Greetings to progressives, leftists, Democrats, Hillary Clinton supporters, and the like. I know that the past few days have been on the rough side for you. I am Rollo McFloogle and I’m here to make an offer to you. I am a libertarian and I think we can do a lot of good by working together.
I know that we have a history of not getting along so well, but now we have a common enemy, Donald Trump.
And I want you to know that I’m not asking for you all to become libertarians as I know that we have our differences, especially in economics (although I think we tend to agree on the goal but just have different views on how to get there), but we do have a lot of things in common.
So you’ve probably been hearing a lot of: “Deal with it, you lost! Get over it!”
To that I say, “No way!” Why should you be forced to participate in something you strongly disagree with especially when your lack of participation causes no harm to anyone else?
I’m sure a lot of you voted, but there is so much more we can be doing now to fight back. There is no need to feel helpless. Don’t let an election get in the way of doing something positive. We’re both good at different things, so if we can combine our talents, we can be a serious thorn in the side of all of the bad things that a Trump presidency is likely to bring. For instance, you guys are incredible at making yourselves heard even when your voice is in the minority. Libertarians often tend to struggle with that.
So what are some of the things I think we should work together on?
Let’s help open the borders up and stop the harassment of immigrants, legal or illegal.
Let’s end the War on Drugs that disproportionately targets minorities and push to decriminalize drugs. Addiction is not a crime.
The more people are thrown in prison, the more money prison owners make. They use literal slave labor in prisons and the justice system has become a human trafficking system. Let’s reform the prison system and end mass incarceration.
Let’s make the police accountable for their actions and stop police brutality. A badge does not grant you special rights and privileges.
Let’s shine a light on the cozy relationship between big business and the government. The central banks own the government. Let’s sever those ties.
Let’s do away with the laws that make it difficult for the poor to find decent work. A lot of these regulations were designed to prevent competition against the businesses that already had a hold of the markets.
LET’S END WAR. The United States has been fighting this “War on Terror” for 15 years with no end in sight and with more enemies on the horizon. It has been a massive violation of human rights.
If I forgot any issues that we can work together on, let me know. And if this appeals to you, let me know or talk to a libertarian friend—I’m sure you have a few.
Please share this with anyone you think will find it useful.
Let’s work together—let’s do it smartly, peacefully, and with smiles on our faces. Remember, we’re all just trying to make the world a better place.
