Ep. 46: The Pledge of Allegiance

Growing up, I distinctly recall standing up every morning in school, placing my hand over my heart and blindly reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.  But no one ever taught me what it meant — at least not in any meaningful way that went further than the propagandists’ standard argument that it was somehow patriotic. Fast … read more

Ep. 28: Abraham Lincoln, The Great Consolidator

When you think of Abraham Lincoln, what comes to mind? If you’re like most people, your mind is immediately drawn to the image of the Great Emancipator — the man who freed the slaves and saved the union.  But this is nothing more than absurd fiction dressed up as historic fact. So what’s the truth … read more

Ep. 26: Executive Orders, Immigration, and Anarchy

The political circus sure has been entertaining these past few weeks.  Amidst all the turmoil, there have been a few topics desperately in need of analysis from a libertarian viewpoint.  This week I discuss executive orders and the recent hullabaloo over President Trump’s immigration policy.  There’s an angle on immigration that everyone is missing.  But not … read more

Ep. 22: The DUI Racket

Ever been stopped in a DUI checkpoint?  Ever been ripped out of your car and thrown on the ground because you dared to peacefully assert your supposedly guaranteed rights? I have.  What crime had I committed that night?  None.  Absolutely none.  I wasn’t arrested, I wasn’t charged, and I certainly never received an apology.  This, … read more

Ep. 21: The Sedition Act Strikes Back

A long time ago, in a Capital far, far away, the Federalist Party worked to enact ruthless anti-sedition laws which served to harass, intimidate, and sometimes jail anyone who disagreed with the General Government.  Unfortunately, my colorful writing isn’t simply inspired by a recent Star Wars movie or the tragic death of Carrie Fisher.  In … read more

Ep. 20: The Electoral College

There’s been so much hype about the electoral college over the past few months.  And yet I feel like most people I talk to don’t understand it at all.  I want to put the issue to bed with an episode dedicated to this mysterious beast.  I start by finalizing my analysis of the 2016 election … read more

Ep. 15: Donald Trump, President-Elect

  HOLY COW, Donald Trump won the Presidency.  What a gigantic middle finger right in the face of the liberal media, academia, and everyone else who assumes that all decent human beings must share their views and values.  In this episode, I’ll tell you about how I reacted to the election, my thoughts on moving … read more

Ep. 13: How I Voted in the 2016 General Election

In this episode, I’ll give you my political philosophy on the practice of voting.  Here’s a preview: sometimes I think it’s ok and other times I think it’s opposed to the nonaggression principle.  If that sounds confusing, don’t worry.  Just have a listen and I promise you’ll understand. As a special bonus, I also tell … read more

Ep. 7: Silly Electric Vehicles and The EU is Clearly Compensating for Brexit

In this episode, the Libertarian Life segment returns.  In it, I showcase the idiocy of reserved parking spaces for so-called fuel-efficient/low-emissions vehicles.  I bring it all back to Hazlitt’s one lesson and the beautiful consistency that is libertarian political philosophy.  That’s right, I found a way to connect property rights and non-aggression to reserved parking … read more
