One Hour to Ask a Libertarian 2012!


In about an hour, we're starting Ask a Libertarian 2012. From 11a.m. to 4p.m. Matt Welch and Nick Gillespie will be fielding any and all questions in rapid-response videos that will be posted right here at Reason.com.

Fire away!:

Should anything be banned?
Aren't libertarians just Democrats who hate poor people?
Do you really want to legalize Heroin?
Who will you be voting for in November?
Where did you get that blouse?

Gillespie and Welch are the authors of the book The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America, out in paperback June 26 . 

On Tuesday, from 11AM ET til 4PM ET, Gillespie and Welch will receive questions via Facebook, Twitter, and email, and, with the help of Reason.tv's crack team of videographers, will post rapid-fire video responses to your most probing and provocative queries.

The lines are open, so think up your toughest question and send it our way.
