Anonymous asked: Your friends are planning to go on a Halloween hayride for fun. You agree to go. The cost is minimal, and you look forward to the gathering. In the interim, you find out all the proceeds from admission to the hayride go toward military members (ie: holiday packages). Do you back out, or go anyway?

If I refused to do business or associate with organizations or people whose politics I disagreed with, I’d probably die hungry, naked, and alone.

Remember: I work in Hollywood, so my very well-being is dependent on working with people who believe in forcing me to live my life how they deem best through threat of violence. 

Enjoy the hayride, if that’s what you want to do. Political disagreements muddy enough of our lives as it is… soak in the things that make you smile and try to forget politics whenever possible. 

Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will recommend the general cause, by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example.

Democratic government is sometimes spoken of as though it were a voluntary arrangement, which clearly it is not. Its laws are as binding as those of any despotism and often display less regard for non-conformists. The tyranny of the majority is no less tyranny.
