"We've noticed in the last fifteen months an uptick in the number of people who are actually self identifying as libertarian," says Freedomworks' David Kirby.
Kirby sat down with Reason magazine's Editor-in-Chief Matt Welch to talk about why more people describe themselves as libertarian, how politicians like Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Justin Amash have come to think of themselves as libertarian and whether Glenn Beck calling himself libertarian is a good thing.
