In 6 years I will be old enough to run for my state assembly

And I will run. I also plan on running for the US House in 10 years when I am old enough to do so.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

If any of you are considering running for office...

please don't run with the idea that you are actually going to change anything through the political process.

The growth of the State is not going to be reversed through politics.

It is important that we all realize that it is not a question of electing the "right people", and that the political means is an inherently immoral, broken system that in and of itself is not a viable option for creating a free society, but we can use it against itself as a platform to spread our ideas.

The only use for politics in libertarianism is as a platform with which to educate the public.

Stay ideologically pure, and never compromise on your principles in the hope of making marginal advances.

So you don't believe in the Constitution?

How about audit the Fed? If you truly want constitutional government. Your going to need politicians. The only use for politcs in libertarianism is TO PROTECT LIBERTY.

Murderers so go to jail.
Cops should use force to return stolen property.

I don't believe...

that a piece of paper no matter how well written or well intentioned is capable of restraining the growth of the state, it's pretty apparent that it hasn't worked already.

I believe in the Non-Aggression Principle, I believe that the initiation of force is always immoral, and that the only justified use of force is in defense of your rights to life, liberty and property.

You can try all you want to reverse the growth of the State through politics, but it isn't going to happen.

The only way to kill the leviathan is to secede from it.

Until we have enough people willing to withdraw their consent from the State, we need to educate to get to that point.
