Nick Gillespie and Rep. Justin Amash Talk Libertarian Foreign Policy, Abortion, and More


Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) is often touted as "the next Ron Paul." Endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus and Young Americans for Liberty, the 33-year-old Amash has made waves by explaining all of his votes on social media, a practice he began during his single term as a Michigan state legislator. He has earned a 100 percent rating from the fiscally conservative Club for Growth, and has taken up where Ron Paul left off on civil liberties.

In March, Editor in Chief Nick Gillespie interviewed Amash in his office, where the walls are adorned with likenesses of Frederic Bastiat, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Carl Menger, Murray Rothbard, and Ayn Rand, and the conversation ranged across topics including economics, foreign policy, and abortion.
