As the election cycle draws to a close I’m reminded of the many reasons I’ve been a Libertarian activist for the last thirty years. I’ve always been drawn to the word freedom and Libertarians believe that being free and independent is a great way to live.
In the past, freedom has taken different forms for me. At sixteen a driver’s license was the freedom to go to the skating rink without parental supervision. My first car meant the freedom to travel. My first apartment gave me the freedom to choose what I would to eat, when I would go to bed, and even how I would arrange the furniture.
