Thinking about: Libertarians in politics

And here.

And as a libertarian in office, I’d pretty much agree that they’ve called it. It takes a lot of determination to do the right thing to work through all the negative (not bad, just negative) personality characteristics your typical libertarian has in order to gain elective office.

Asking people for stuff sucks. Putting yourself out there sucks. Asking for money sucks almost as much as spending your own does. Hoop jumping is almost as bad.

That said …

There’s something vaguely satisfying about crushing your opponents, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentations of their women – particularly if you end up in a satisfying job where you can make a libertarian difference in things…. 😀
