Why I Am Running for President As A Libertarian [PODCAST]

September 4, 2015

Today's Freedom Report podcast discusses why editor Austin Petersen has decided to seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party for President of the United States. With the rise of right-wing populism taking over the Tea Party, Donald Trump has ridden the wave on the back of anti-free market sentiments among the right.

With Rand Paul floundering in the polls, who is left to articulate a pure libertarian message of economic freedom and personal liberty? 

Leif Bieberson is here.  

While some may think it's a joke, the reality is that with the current slate of presidential candidates, the joke's on all of us. America deserves to have a candidate who boldly stands up for what is right, not just what is popular.

If the Republican Party decides not to nominate Rand Paul, who will be left to stand up for these issues? Who will represent the voice of the libertarians in this national debate? Gary Johnson? Johnson had his chance, and voters didn't respond. Why not try something new?

An Austin Petersen presidency would be one of strict deregulation, limited taxation, economic freedom, less foreign interventionism, free trade, and civil rights. Today's episode of the Freedom Report podcast goes into detail over why Petersen's throwing his hat into the ring, and why you should support him.
