Ask a Libertarian with Reason's Nick Gillespie & Matt Welch, Coming Wed., June 15!


Got a question for a libertarian? Then give it your best shot on Wednesday, June 15, when Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch, co-authors of The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America, answer any and all queries, such as:

  • How do you feel about net neutrality?
  • Who are you supporting in 2012?
  • Why do you hate poor people?
  • Do these pants make me look fat?
  • Aren't libertarians just Republicans who smoke pot?
  • What about the children?

On Wednesday, from 10AM ET til 6PM ET, Gillespie and Welch, will receive questions via Facebook, Twitter, and email, and, with the help of's crack team of videographers (who may well be on crack that day), will post rapid-fire video responses to your most probing and provocative queries.

The lines open on Wednesday, so think up your toughest question and send it our way between 10AM ET and 6PM ET.
