Hit & Run

Ask a Libertarian 2012! The Complete Questions and Answers with Matt Welch & Nick Gillespie


Last Tuesday, Reason's Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch fielded questions on everything from who's getting their vote in the presidential run to what's the most libertarian movie ever to where in the world is an actual example of a truly libertarian government.

Ask a Libertarian 2012 features 31 rapid-response videos produced and uploaded in about six hours. Click on the image of a very smug (and very wrong!) Tom Friedman to get the playlist running (total time is about 1.30 hours).

Or pick and choose based on topics by going to ReasonTV's YouTube channel.

Gillespie and Welch fielded questions sent via email, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube as a way of celebrating the new paperback edition of their book The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America. The paperback, which comes out on June 26, features a new foreword that discusses the Occupy Wall Street movement and other developments since the hardcover debuted about a year ago.

Many thanks to ReasonTV's Meredith Bragg, Jim Epstein, Joshua Swain, and Tracy Oppenheimer, who filmed, edited, and uploaded all vids (and Bragg for suggesting the concept last year; for the first Ask a Libertarian playlist, go here).
