Matt Drudge, of the popular Drudge Report, has broken from the Republican ranks. Yes, he has decided to go a different way, though it took him long enough to recognize the obvious sameness of the two major political parties. As he tweeted:
Matt Drudge, the founder of the popular conservative news aggregator DrudgeReport.com, tweeted today that since there are no real differences between Democrats and Republicans the only two real political parties are Authoritarians and Libertarians. “It’s now Authoritarian vs Libertarian,” Drudge tweeted. “Since Democrats vs. Republicans has been obliterated, no real difference between parties…” Drudge also asks his followers why anyone would still vote Republican. “Who are they?!” he asks. “Raised taxes; marching us off to war again; approves more NSA snooping.”
“It’s now Authoritarian vs Libertarian.” Yes, Matt, it has been this way for a very long time. Welcome to the real world. It is not about Red vs Blue, Republican vs Democrat. They sing the same Authoritarian tune, just in different keys. Liberty is about the least amount of “official” authority as possible. The US Constitution, in its day, and as it was originally designed and interpreted, was a very libertarian document. It gave us freedom to live our lives with little government interference. It didn’t give us rights, it codified that the rights specified in the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence were inherent rights, inherent by the mere fact of our birth. As such, they are unalienable rights. No government may lawfully deprive us of those rights. Those restrictions of our rights which have been passed into law are not “lawful”. As the Supreme Court has said on several occasions, any law passed which is repugnant to the Constitution, is null and void.
Matt, now that you are a self-proclaimed libertarian, I would like to pose a question to you: Will you recognize that the Federal Reserve is a violation of the Constitution, as well as the individual rights of us all, and will you pronounce publicly your opposition to it? Every libertarian I have ever known is opposed to the Federal Reserve. They recognize it is an affront to the freedom of the individual. It is a tool of the Authoritarians to subject us to economic slavery. What will you say about it? Or will you say nothing? Now that you have experienced your epiphany, will you speak out against those who wish to advance authority over us, to control us? “It’s now Authoritarian vs Libertarian.” This is what you said in your tweet. Did you mean it? Do you stand ready to oppose those who would seek to control us? What say you, Matt? Will you only oppose a select few areas of authorianism, or will you champion liberty everywhere, for everyone?
It will be interesting to see if Matt’s new found libertarianism is real, or merely a varnish he has coated his conservative beliefs with. To be a libertarian is to oppose imposed authority. Most of us realize the necessity of minimal authority for the sake of a functioning society. It is the authoritarians who always seek for more power, more authority, over us. To them it is about control. Where do you stand, Matt? If this epiphany of yours is real, I look forward to hearing you speaking out about a variety of issues dealing with control of the populace, not just the NSA spying on us, but a whole raft of control issues.
Across this Nation, and throughout the world, there has been a new awakening. For some, it is a partial awakening. They still cling to the old programming. To be truly awake is to recognize that we have been programmed since birth by the authoritarians. It is time to hear from the libertarians. Perhaps Matt will be a new voice for the libertarians. I hope so, but I won’t hold my breath.
