Donate to Reason to Produce More Stimulating Q&As With Fascinating People!


Oh, Manny, we are SO CLOSE to filling up that orange bar on the upper right hand corner of this page! SO CLOSE to cracking the 1,000-donor level! What can I get you last fence-sitters to join Reason's annual Webathon and help us get to $200,000 in tax-deductible donations by the end of today in order to produce even better journalism and commentary in defense of Free Minds and Free Markets?

How about this: Our awesome long-form Q&As. Our new print issue on "libertarian realism" features not one but TWO lengthy Q&As with famous libertarian-leaning politicians with the last name "Paul." Here with Ron and here with Rand we probe their definitions of when (if ever!) the United States should use deadly force abroad. This is just what we do.
