In this video David Boaz, executive vice president over at Cato, supports his new book (The Politics of Freedom) with a speech about government junkies on both the left and the right, illegitimate executive power, the U.S.'s sizable libertarian voting bloc, and more.

The book itself, a collection of Boaz's writings over the years, covers an even wider selection of topics, containing articles such as "Our Magical President," "Liberty At The Movies," and "Stalin's Songbird" (about American folkster Pete Seeger).
