Liberty loving/truth seeking/small L libertarian TV? What would you want that to look like?

If there existed a television network - that had content that you wanted to watch - what kind of shows would you want to see? Who would you want to see host those shows?

Inquiring minds want to know!

A big L.

I'll "bite"..

I want to see a form of Libertarian Media that projects the values of the movement without resorting to mentioning the alternative ideologies that are against what we defend.

In other words, I want our values to be promoted in a positive and self sustaining way without having to resort to negative comparisons with our ideological adversaries. Why do I believe this is the path? I believe this is the path because the truth does not need lies to support it's self.

Every time we take the time to promote the lies, we are wasting time we could have been using to promote the truth. Even engaging in certain arguments is a waste of time sometimes because the act of arguing with certain "perspectives" only serves to promote them and give them legitimacy when most of the time, those "perspectives" have been created with the intent of wasting our time.

If we are in fact the live and let live crowd we know ourselves to be, we should have no problem in saying that 2+2=4 without having the need to say that 2+2 does not = 5, 6, 7 ,8, etc..

I believe that there is a place for every angle to be worked on and I believe that there are not so many places like the DP on the Internet where we can "escape" the propaganda that we can be constantly bombarded with if we chose to tune in to the mainstream media.

P.S. I won't respond to any comments on my use of the word "truth" as 2+2=4..

P.S.2

I am happy to use the DP as it most of the time provides me with information that breaks away from what we normally see on the mainstream media and it is a place where we can gather to help promote the gems (videos, articles, etc..) that deserve to become viral on websites like YouTube, etc..

I try to change people every day. Do You?

"Inquiring minds want to know!"

Who exactly wants to know? Beck? Rush? Rove? Priebus?

Identify the group that wants to know so we can check them out and then I'll tell you. I have some good ideas that would make good shows "I think", but I'm not about to share anything AT ALL with people who wish to capitalize on the Liberty movement for nefarious reasons.

Oh never mind.. it's for Rand vote swaying maybe.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

I thought as libertarians

We generally valued privacy? Yes there is a group of wealthy individuals who are looking at starting a TV/online/game console/networkish entity. Yes they are very liberty oriented. No they are not Glenn Beck or any of the above named individuals. And no this is not about promoting any one candidate.

I am!

"We generally valued privacy?"

Generally but we also value transparency.. Although you can't tell with many here, libertarian isn't synonymous with sucker.

Some people would love to use libertarianism against us to co-opt and abuse. Maybe you're "wealthy" group is one of them.

I wouldn't work

With people looking to co-opt and abuse us. People who want to give the libertarian message a bigger platform and more visability though? Most definately.

I am!

Oh, I'm sorry.. since you've said you aren't that way

I can trust your word now. It truly makes me feel so much better that you've reassured everyone of your good intentions.

Your words mean diddly shit to me. If they want information, let them come forth and give information.

It's all good

I think we'll be OK not knowing if rp4pres wants to see more along the lines of Ben Swann, Amber Lyon, Joe Rogan, John Stossell, Penn Jillette or something a little more in your face like Alex Jones, Luke Rudkowski and Adam Kokesh.

Hope you had a great weekend!

I am!

Oh I'm sure you'll get some suckers

It happens every time. I find it highly suspect that they, the ones trying to set up media, which by it's very nature puts them in the light, refuse to give their information.. I'm betting their crooked as fuck.

I've seen it many times in the world in general and on here.. People asking for information or money but refusing to give their information.. Many who turn out to be scammers or co-opters.

I might point out too.. I know those people you referenced and can find information on those that I'm not familiar with. They're all famous and in the limelight. Ain't that funny. :)

We won't turn things around until we 1st change the media - donate to a liberty media creator today!

What I would like to see

I would like to see GOP state conventions covered, liberty candidates, speaches by their guest speakers and liberty candidates who win possitions on the state GOP.

I would like to see the ground floor grassroots and the suite parties, if possible any events/ speaches during banquets, and the election results of the state GOP.

I would like to see interviews with the organizers of the grassroots campaigns, Campaign For Liberty, Liberty PAC, Republican Liberty Caucus, also interveiws of those who have written resolutions and inniatives, and have petitions happening, local, state and national scale.

I woud like to see any Liberty Movement outside the GOP also.

How to make that

Something people would want to watch though?

I'm with ya though Granger!

I think those who appreciate CSPAN more than MSM

Would appreciate an inside look at what's goin on inside the GOP and other Liberty actions. So, that would make at least two of us.

What kind of a libertarians

What kind of a libertarian television network and programming could reach a non-libertarian audience?

Libertarians need to program a few statist viewers with a highly contagious freedom virus...

Are there libertarians

In media today that you think could effectively do that if given a bigger platform and more exposure?

I am!

I don't know the answer to

I don't know the answer to this question:

1. What type of programming do Americans watch, when, why, and where?

The topic of libertarian tv in general has been heavily discussed on several occasions since 07 but it has never been realized.

I want a Bill Hicks / George Carlin show. Joe Rogan can host.

And if any comedian grows the cojones to make truth funny, they can be on the show, too. I want to see a show where good news is all they tell. (How about the little town in Maine that declared food sovereignty? They deserve some spotlight time!) There can be a "bad news" show, too, but I am SICK of knowing all the good people doing good work get NO visibility, while every vile criminal gets instant fame for being a vile criminal.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Bill Hicks

and George Carlin would be kinda hard to pull off!:)

Joe Rogan noted though, thank you!

I am!

Nope. Show the repeats, over and over.

There is enough material between them, and by giving them the spotlight they deserve maybe some living comedians would take up their mantle. Joe is close, he's just not as funny. (Sorry, Joe.... luv ya!)

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Anyone besides

Joe Rogan who is alive make your list?

I am!

Actually, this guy is pretty good.

But that is my point. We need to LAUGH. But cheap jokes that always belittle someone for a punch line don't really amuse me any more. I can't laugh at the "sand niggers" or "towel heads" and I can't laugh at the "crazy hoarders" and "preppers" that apparently are the new prime time butt of America's joke... Truth, in all its beautiful irony, delivered with a touch of irony or even sarcasm... that is what makes me laugh now. And there are no more Bills or Georges, not that I can find.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
