I supported libertarian candidates throughout most of my twenties.
In the 2008 presidential primaries I donated $500 to Ron Paul, which earned me an invitation to a private event and photo op with the candidate.
I regret this support.
It came from a place of privilege that I didn’t recognize I had.
I understand that some people’s blood starts to boil when they see the word privilege, so let me clarify what I mean by that.
