5 Libertarian Shirts You Need To Own
So You Call Yourself A Libertarian, But Do You Own The Apparel To Back It Up?
Whether you've been a libertarian for decades, or you've recently switched to the brighter side, we can all agree that libertarians make up a passionate group. While libertarianism is still growing, you believe principles such as individualism, free markets, and limited government are all values that should be spread. So what better way is there to spread these freedom values than to literally wear them around?
We've listed 5 items of apparel we think are must-haves if you want to spread the message of liberty. If there's a shirt you think is missing from the list below, check out our **entire collection** of libertarian apparel.
#1 Taxation Is Theft
“Taxation is theft” is a popular slogan among libertarians. It captures the sentiment that we should hold the state to the same moral standards as non-state actors.
This libertarian t-shirt is a must-have if you believe you're truly entitled to every penny you earn from your labor. Besides, this belief is just an extention of the non-agression principle.
#2 The Libertarian Porcupine
#3 Don't Tread On Me
"Don't Tread On me" comes from a historical flag called the "Gadsden Flag." The flag is named after American general and politician Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution. It was used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag.
The mantra behind the rattlesnake is, "If you don't hurt me, I won't hurt you." They're peaceful creatures, up until you step on one.
Rock this neon Gadsden rattlesnake design by wearing this comfortable tee. This is the kind of eye-catching, libertarian apparel your friends are going to notice.
#4 - If Guns Kill People...
We all know gun control has been an explosive subject in the last few decades. Debate is great, but the problem is a lot of those on the Left overlook one simple thing: logic.
It's not that difficult to understand that inanimate objects do not have a motive -- good or bad -- because... they're inanimate.
There are a lot of pro-gun, second amendment shirts out there, but this one is pretty awesome. Check it out here.
#5 - Make Orwell Fiction Again
This is a libertarian classic. George Orwell was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic whose work is marked by social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism and outspoken support of democratic socialism. Well, whether it's socialism or "democratic" socialism, it all ends the same way.
Animal Farm was great and all, but how about we keep Orwell in the fiction section? Let's Make Orwell Fiction Again.
