What Liberty could be

Liberty State is not the wild imaginings of Matt Shea or the crackpots, as Shawn Vestal likes to label us. It is the result of decades of government failures, unconstitutional meddling, and immoral indoctrination by the state and its programming media – including public schools.

I can do without all that. I behave tolerably well, I know right from wrong, and though I might bother totalitarian crowds who think they know more about life than I do, I have never harmed one of them. And I want far less government encroachment than we have from Olympia and D.C.

So yes, I support Liberty state. I want a state that prosecutes criminals rather than persecuting non-liberals. I want to see an end to a school system that allows no disagreement and fosters the very things I find repugnant and harmful. And no, I don’t want more police, more rules, bullying anyone because of his (common gender) beliefs, or more taxes that fix absolutely nothing.
