A Rothbardian Vs. A Hollywood Celeb ObamaniteSubmitted by cotterdan321 on Fri, 11/02/2012 - 19:03
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.
