As this past election happened I was struck by how many reporters and journalists said something along the lines of “Who will be the next person to run our country?” I hate it when people say that. The president does not “run the country” he is the head of the Executive branch. He does not have authority to “run the country”. When we pretend that he does we misinform those who don’t know any better.
I have a suggestion. We can all stop worrying about what the president will do if we limit what he CAN do. What do I mean by that? Limit the size of the government, and thus it’s power, and then we won’t have to worry about what they will do because they can’t do all that much anyways. This is the core tenet of my policy beliefs.
That’s why I think on this area Liberals, Conservatives, and third-party people have the potential to unite and really hammer both sides.
We don’t have to agree on what to do if we win. But if we do win then we won’t have to agree. That’s why I see Libertarianism or Classic Liberalism as the common ground for both sides.
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. As always if you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to contact me in private by heading over to the Contact Me page, or just commenting below.
