Continuing with my interview series with Libertarian Presidential Candidates, I am joined on the show this week by (as promised) Dr. Jo Jorgensen! Dr. Jo Jorgensen (Ph.D in Industrial/Organizational Psychology) was the Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential Nominee with Harry Browne in 1996 and is currently is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Clemson University.
Dr. Jorgensen joins the show today to discuss her experience in Libertarain Party politics, her vision for the Libertarian Party and the liberty movement, and why she believe’s she is the best person to lead the Libertarian Party towards success in the 2020 election.
- The Libertarian Party: What’s the best way to advance liberty?
That’s a question I get asked often. You can be an activist, an entrepreneur, a media personality, or politics.
That’s why I decided to become a member of the largest pro-liberty party in the United States, the Libertarian Party. I started my show with the goals to educate, enlighten, and inform, while also advancing the principles of liberty.
The LP is the largest political party in America that, at its core principles, embraces the values of individual liberty, property rights, and non-aggression. The other two major parties have embraced tribal warfare versus principled debate. It’s time we stop feeding the beast and put our money where out mouths are.
That means putting petty bickering and nonsensical arguments aside and actually advancing liberty.
The LP, like every political party, has its flaws.
But instead of focusing on those flaws and tossing stones from the cheap seats, it’s time we take personal responsibility (like we promote on a regular basis) and take some responsibility in making the LP the best it can be.
