A Rothbardian Vs. A Hollywood Celeb Obamanite

I recently was on Mary Lynn Rajskub's (Chloe O'brien from 24) podcast Kickin It Mary Lynn Style. She wanted me to discuss politics with uber Obama supporter Chris Wylde (comedian/actor). We talked about voting, war, presidential power, kill lists, NDAA, and more. I think I did a decent job of defending libertarianism. I tried to be polite, so I didn't interrupt him even though he was saying a lot of things that we would all find hard to listen to, but I got my points in when it was my turn to speak.

There was one point early on where I threw out a couple numbers about Hitler and those German elections that were way off, but it doesn't change the point I was making, which was that high voter turnout doesn't guarantee good results. After all, Hitler came to power in a democracy with high voter turnout. I have no idea where those numbers came from, so ignore that goof on my part. Other than that I thought it was a fun discussion, and I enjoyed the experience.

Anyways, I thought some of you might find it interesting to listen to a hardcore Rothbardian debate politics with a couple comedians.

Cool. Let me know what you

Cool. Let me know what you think. I'd be interested in hearing some constructive criticism. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if you had anything positive to say about my performance, either;)
