“Don’t vote,” anarchists say, “it only encourages them.”
All freedom lovers get a chuckle out of that old chestnut. But it doesn’t take a genius to realize that non-voting by sensible skeptics does more than encourage usurping politicians. It gives them free rein.
Voting in rational self-defense seems like the more practical approach.
Alas, that’s easier said than done.
This weekend’s Townhall column by Yours Truly floats a proposal: swapping votes for freedom.
Politicians swap votes all the time to get what they want. We want less government. Can we get what we want by swapping votes in our way?
Well, read the column, then come back here, and maybe we can make some mutually profitable trades!
