Eric Dondero on his future plans, posted the day after the reelection of Barack Obama:
However, for me, I’m choosing another rather unique path; a personal boycott, if you will. Starting early this morning, I am going to un-friend every single individual on Facebook who voted for Obama, or I even suspect may have Democrat leanings. I will do the same in person. All family and friends, even close family and friends, who I know to be Democrats are hereby dead to me. I vow never to speak to them again for the rest of my life, or have any communications with them. They are in short, the enemies of liberty. They deserve nothing less than hatred and utter contempt.
I strongly urge all other libertarians to do the same. Are you married to someone who voted for Obama, have a girlfriend who voted ‘O’. Divorce them. Break up with them without haste. Vow not to attend family functions, Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas for example, if there will be any family members in attendance who are Democrats.
Do you work for someone who voted for Obama? Quit your job. Co-workers who voted for Obama. Simply don’t talk to them in the workplace, unless your boss instructs you too for work-related only purposes. Have clients who voted Democrat? Call them up this morning and tell them to take their business elsewhere.
Have a neighbor who votes for Obama? You could take a crap on their lawn. Then again, probably not a good idea since it would be technically illegal to do this. But you could have your dog take care of business. Not your fault if he just happens to choose that particular spot.
And start your boycott of your Democrat friends and family today. Like this morning. First thing you can do, very easy, is to un-friend all Democrats from your Facebook account.
Go read the whole thing, it gets even better. (But there is a mild language warning.)
Really, he’s only advocating behavior the Democrats already endorse. But anyway, even if I don’t follow his advice at least he made me laugh really hard, which I haven’t done in a few days. I may even be doing this subconsciously anyway. I was at the grocery store today and found myself looking away from people in the aisles because I didn’t want to be the least bit friendly to anyone who may have voted for Barack Obama or Dan Maffei. Usually I smile at people, or say hello. Not anymore. Or at least not this week.
Oh, and does anyone nearby have a dog you want walked? I’d be happy to help out.
