  • […] Partisan politics is not the answer. Politics has somehow become a silver bullet solution for some. “Elect our guy and he will fix everything,” they say. But that’s not us. Team sports, instead of core principles, allows us to be used and manipulated by partisan hacks who don’t care about us or our values. They only care about power, and will say anything to get it. Convincing activists that Congress had the Constitutional power to overturn the presidential election is an egregious, and now deadly, example of this, but it happens all the time. Empty promises manipulate us into fighting for our “team,” against those other barbarians at the gate. The alternative is what Thomas Massie calls “trans-partisan.” It’s a joke with an essential point: He doesn’t “identify” with either party, instead choosing to focus on ideas that, from his perspective, advance human liberty. A practical example of this is his willingness to work with any member of Congress, regardless of party, where there is common ground based upon shared principles. A real-life example of this is my recent conversation with Massie and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, which you can watch here. […]
