My book review for Brian Doherty’s new book. Highly recommended! Get it NOW!
I just wanted to thank Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch for posting my video on Reason magazine’s website.
Just to be clear, I like both Reason and the Mises Institute. Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch wrote a thought-provoking book, the Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What’s Wrong With America, that you should check out even if you have minor disagreements on how they define libertarianism. They are both awesome libertarians in my book.
Update: Thank you to David Gordon for also posting my video on LewRockwell.com. Here: http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/95235.html. He also responded to an email that I sent him which was very kind.
Another update: Lew Rockwell posted one of my videos “Audit then End the Fed.” Here: http://www.lewrockwell.com/politicaltheatre/2011/09/ron-paul-is-right-audit-the-fed-then-end-it/ Thank you Lew Rockwell for spreading my video.

My new video:
Libertarians are not required to be socially liberal. I actually consider myself to be pretty socially conservative. Libertarianism is all about “defining the permissible use of force.” It has nothing to do with social values in my opinion. Reason seemed to say that the spread of gay marriage, interracial couples, rock music, porn are signs we are becoming more libertarian. It’s good that there are no government bans but the spread of these things seems irrelevant to libertarianism.
