The truth is both parties suck but there are still good people on both sides. Ran Paul is a republican I very much like, and let us remember that his father Ron Paul ran as a republican in the 2012 elections even though he's truly a libertarian. I see myself as a libertarian so I had to ask myself why so many libertarians seem to lean into the right or become republicans, and before long it became quite clear to me that the socialist principles underpinning a lot of the democratic arguments are deeply incompatible with concepts of liberty.
Liberals like to portray how progressive they are and how they respect personal liberty when it comes to things like legalization of marijuana, but they have little problem enacting a nanny state which will control innumerable aspects of our lives and force us all to live in bubble wrap where nothing offensive is ever uttered. Just look at how YouTube is trying to make everything "kid friendly" and absolutely ruining the platform in the process, really it's nothing but a way to demonetize and suppress opinions they don't like.
Democrats and Republicans both suck
