We promote free thought through Libertarian t shirts and bumper stickers. As fate would have it, we're launching this fledgling venture in 2016, a presidential-election year in the US. So our initial product collection is a bit heavy with political themes, a most distasteful subject. As anyone familiar with American culture knows, such elections are deeply cherished rituals in which we Yanks take leave of our senses and make fools of ourselves. When we awaken with the inevitable electoral hangover in 2017 — and we notice that our...
