As the ECOMINOES brand grows, I find myself increasingly shut out of social opportunities. I'm perplexed by this, as I don't understand how one's personal politics--kept separate from interpersonal relationships--could make someone socially undesirable in the eyes of others. I ask myself: how could perpetuating the ideas of great men such as Thomas Jefferson--at the appropriate times--be considered a social liability? How is perpetuating the ideas of liberty in one's own time be something of which to be ashamed?
In these tumultuous times, perpetuating the ideas of liberty is honorable. Those who have accepted the responsibility of spreading the word must accept that being shunned socially is one of the costs we must bear. But liberty and the future of this country are well worth the price we pay.
