I dont know much about how to pilot a jet. Thats okay, as long as I stay away from the controls. If I fiddle with the controls, I would be endangering myself, and other persons who did not consent to being endangered.
The same is true about voting. Jet pilots did lots of homework to learn how to pilot jets correctly. When you vote, you are taking control of an army, a navy, an air force and the navys marine corps, as well as numerous civilian law enforcement agencies. You need to know what youre doing. If you dont know what youre doing, dont vote.
On 11 September 2001, some guys took control of some jets and crashed them. It makes no difference how much training those guys got, if they are of a malicious mindset and intended to crash the jets.
Deliberately voting for candidates who are not orthodox libertarian extremists is just as bad.
Maybe those guys who intentionally crashed the jets thought it would be a good idea to do so. They were entitled to their wrong opinion, but that did not entitle them to crash jets and kill persons who did not consent to being killed. Likewise, you may think it is a good idea to elect candidates who are not orthodox libertarian extremists, but your right to hold wrong opinions does not entitle you to vote away other peoples freedoms. Never underestimate the hostility you incite by voting wrong. The victims of the rights violations, the victims of the deprivation of freedoms, did not consent to your voting away their freedoms, and reject all of your excuses for doing so, no matter how well you ignore the flaws in your lines of reasoning.
Those who make the peaceful defense of liberty impossible make the violent defense of liberty inevitable.
