Nobody seems good enoughSubmitted by Lukapaka on Sun, 02/24/2013 - 16:03
I just wanted to state something I've been noticing.
Everytime a video is shared with somebody agreeing with a particular piece of the libertarian platform, there is a rush of individuals who quickly dismiss the individual, then ignore the message. Let me point to some examples (there are many more for each person, these were just the first ones I could find)

I would like to urge everyone to resist doing the following things:
1) Reminding people that they don't trust the person
2) Accusing these people of working for 'TPTB,' being 'Party Shills', etc.
3) [THE MOST IMPORTANT] IGNORING AND NOT PLACING EMPHASIS ON THE POINTS THEY ARE MAKING!
I am not saying that these people are our leaders, or even that they are a great ally to our movement. What I am saying is that each of these people have, at one point or another offered exposure to our message, and put it in a positive light. I urge this community to stear away from ignoring the message and discrediting the messanger. EXPOSURE IS EXPOSURE IS EXPOSURE, and for hundreds of years the sheeple have been exposed to boob-tube propoganda and the message of liberty was under a rock. Personally, I don't care WHO is talking about our message.
I just want people to hear it.
