STANDING UP TO THE STATUS QUO


"I didn't know I was one - until I met one"

We hear that all the time. It is our belief that most people are Libertarians and just don't know it. We encourage you to find out more and let us know if this quote applies to you.


THE BIRDFEEDER ANALOGY
by Michael Cloud (paraphrased)

Recently, I went home to visit my parents for the weekend. And you know that no matter how old you are, your parents will make you feel like you don't know how to take care of yourself.
As I looked out the kitchen window, I noticed several birds huddled around a birdfeeder. Later in the day, I realized the feeder was empty. I said, "Mom, where do you keep the birdseed? I want to refill the feeder."
Mom replied, "It's under the sink, but read the instructions first."
"But Mom, I think I can refill it without reading the instructions." (She obviously thought I wasn't capable of doing this simple task without help)
"Just read the instructions."
So I picked up the box, and realized that sometimes parents really do know what they are talking about. It read:
DO NOT IMMEDIATELY REFILL THE FEEDER. IF YOU DO, THE BIRDS WILL COME TO DEPEND ON YOU FOR FOOD AND THEY WILL NOT LEARN TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. WAIT AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE REFILL.

I think there is a lesson to be learned here.
Do YOU get it??



QUOTE OF THE MONTH

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine



THE LP of DAVIDSON CO. NEEDS YOU!!

We could use your help. If you want to see lower taxes and more freedom, then consider giving your time/money to the only political party that consistently values both. Our candidates need your support. Our local affiliate also needs help with advertising costs.
The two-party system has failed us. Their only concern is preserving their own power. They can't balance a budget, educate our children, or maintain roads. They can't even draw districts without leaving the voters in a state of confusion. The Libertarian Party stands alone as the last lone hope for positive change. Volunteer and contribute today!!
