As you have probably already guessed, Liberty is For the Win is philosophically and culturally right of center, emphasizing classically liberal values of individual freedom, limited government, personal responsibility, and capitalist market theory, but also recognizes that there exists a moral obligation of society to lift people out of a state of poverty and disadvantage through voluntary, non-state means. Therefor it is morally imperative to stop doing things that do not work and holding onto policies divorced from their results.
“When people are free, great things happen.“
Liberty is For The Win!
Hi libertyftw. I just wanted to thank you for your comments and defense on my you tube comment on the Stefan Molyneux video about Ted Cruz. My YouTube username is radradroadbot. I thought you’d like to know that I actually called in and talked with Stefan and his assistant for over an hour a couple days after that post, but I haven’t seen that call aired. I like to say that he didn’t air the call because I embarrassed him with wit and facts, but that probably isn’t the case. We had a good talk. I was probably under prepared and didn’t have all the references I should have, but I did my best to make my case. Stefan basically just doubled down on all his claim and let his assistant (who’s name I don’t recall) do most of the talking because he’s the one who actually did the research on Ted, not Stefan. Anyway I just thought you like to know that I didn’t back down and I appreciate you not either. Thanks
You’re welcome, brother! And thank you for taking a stand! We will not let these people take a good man’s name through the mud like this. I am frankly SHOCKED to see Stefan, who has been peddling “anarcho-capitalism” for years now pivot and go full out for the poster boy of crony corporatism and the lobbyist culture of Washington, DC. I’ve always suspected Stefan was not a true believer in what he was selling, and this endorsement of Trump is clear confirmation of those suspicions. I’ll keep fighting this fight and proudly!
I have a BS in Business administration, BA in Liberal arts, and an MS in Computer Science. I was born in 1933, middle of Kansas , raised by a mother with three children. I served in the Army in Korea 1953 through 1955. Where in your experience do you decide your views on Trump, and others. Please let me know !

Your use of imagery in your writing captivates me while I ponder your message. Keep writing. Your message is important.
I have read a few of your posts with interest. While you declare yourself “right of center” (and I would, if required, declare myself “left” as being somewhat less enamored of the virtues of capitalism, certainly as currently practiced), I don’t see your posts as “right wing” at all in the current environment. Trusting smart people to do smart things, believing in progress, hell, even believing in actual facts takes you outside the current Overton window of political possibility. Your American Republicans (I am Canadian) are mostly full on insane, and what passes for “the left” these past 50 years is also delusional – we cannot have nice things (medicare, schools, hospitals, driveable roads, addiction treatment, etc.) unless we are willing to have honest discussions about how much these things wiĺl cost us all. Valuing liberty, personal responsibility, compassion and intelligence are not political virtues, they are human virtues that are not present to any great extent in any of our current Western democracies, including Canada’s. So whether you like it or not, I declare you neither right nor left of center (centre), just a sensible human. Thanks, I enjoyed your writing.
