That's the libertarian message that sells. That's the libertarian message that resonates deep inside of people. That's the libertarian message that wins elections.
But why would libertarians want to win elections?
Because those who win elections have the power to either reduce people's political liberty [which libertarians don't want] or increase people's political liberty [which libertarians do want]. Majority rule is only tyranny of the majority if the majority votes to reduce freedom. If a majority votes to increase freedom ... that's not tyranny. If a majority voted for Ron Paul, tyranny wouldn't gain ground ... liberty would gain.
But why are libertarians always losing elections? It can't be because people want more tyranny. The vast majority of people are at least somewhat in touch with their spirit, which wants for them political liberty. The urge for political liberty is universal and ever rising to the surface.
Sorry to say, libertarians do not take advantage of this natural urge in people. They do not spread a message that resonates with this urge. They do not tell people "your spirit is free and wants for you outer conditions of freedom so it can guide you to unimaginable prosperity and well-being."
Instead, libertarians go on and on arguing about foreign wars, military bases in foreign countries, and the need to legalize drugs. Never mind that such arguments are morally and logically correct. They are arguments which do not reach inside people and invite an experience of the fullness of their spirit. In short, such arguments stimulate the intellect, but do not inspire.
Those who fought in the American Revolutionary War were inspired. They would not have chosen to endure misery and suffering and even possibly death in order to assure that drugs would always be legal or that Americans would never have a military presence in a foreign land. But they did chose a path of suffering, a path of misery, a path of possible death because they felt as deeply as anyone feels that their spirit was free and their spirit wanted for them political liberty.
Like the original American revolutionaries, libertarians do feel their spirit ... else they wouldn't be libertarians. They only need to abandon arguments which don't really resonate with the vast majority of people and start saying loud and clear and often the truth that American revolutionaries held in their constant awareness:
outer conditions of freedom so it can guide us
To understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"
"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
