Nick Gillespie Talks Declaration of Independence on Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld

 

Last Friday, I was on Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld and we talked about libertarianism and my and Matt Welch's new book, The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What Wrong with America (go here to buy, see reviews, etc.).

Gutfeld sums up the book thus: "They say it's better than War and Peace and Everybody Poops, combined."

    Fuck, Gutfeld again?

  • Mike M.||

    Well, I don't see too many guys on CNN bending over backwards to help promote the book.

  • GregorySmith3||

    Exactly! I don't know why reason attracts so many Fox haters.

  • ||

    Is independence spelled wrong in the headline?

  • PIRS||

    No, it is the actual name of the book. Referring to people who are neither Republicans nor Democrats.

  • PIRS||

    Oops - my bad.

    To Whom It May Concern... The Jury Duty link is broken.

  • pmains||

    I noticed that, too. I also noticed that there was a missing [sic] for where the pamphleteer wrote "conscious" instead of "conscience."

  • ||

    And now it's gone... Spooky.

  • ||

    It is called "post nullification". It is one of the unenumerated blog rights.

  • ||

    The judges would have also accepted: "COMMERCE CLAUSE!"

    Is independence spelled wrong in the headline?

    That's the hip-hop spelling of "independents."

  • The Truth||

    CHINA opens worlds longest bridge, 2.5 miles longer than the former champion in the US:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43.....ver-water/

    Why aren't we building this kind of infrastructure anymore?

  • Mike M.||

    Gee, I don't know... maybe because we already did it forty, fifty years ago?

    Are you seriously implying that we ought to spend billions of dollars to build a bridge simply to that we can reclaim our rightful place in the Guinness Book of World Records?

  • Spiny Norman||

    The Truth has "infrastructure envy."

  • ||

    OH NOES THE SLOPES ARE GONNA GET US!!!

  • ||

    I'm reading a book that says that, despite all the crap going on, we're still on the path to world dominion. Kneel before us, bitches.

  • ||

    When was it written? 1955?

  • ||

    Still a gigantic economy upon which all of the other economic powers are dependent, and, of course, most of the world is demilitarizing in acknowledgment that they can, more or less, trust us to police things. Which means that our military superiority is growing, not shrinking.

    I'm not applauding all of this, but it takes some serious tunnel vision to ignore it. We could implode, but that's not likely. We're more likely to turn truly imperial than to allow ourselves to collapse.

  • ||

    China's economy will be bigger on a PPP basis by 2018 at the latest.

  • Spiny Norman||

    Because we spent all of our money on transfer payments and military excursions.

  • mofo||

    I think we could save a lot of time if we just wrote a script to rehash all the "Japanese are going to overtake us and own everything" rhetoric from the '80s and replace 'Japan' with 'China'.

    Why arent we building this kind of nationalistic scaremongering recycling technology anymore?

  • ||

    Why aren't we building this kind of infrastructure anymore?

    Because building the most expensive type of road possible (ie a bridge) that you can't turn off of and gives no access to property for 26 miles is fucking idiotic.
