WAL 329: Why World War I Still Matters

We Are Libertarians

Chris Spangle explains the many reasons the first World War still matters today. World War I unleashed a revolution of big government into the American system. We start with a general overview of World War I and its significance to those living 100 years later. He explains the 14 reasons why World War I took place and the striking parallels of today. Next, he outlines the many ways Woodrow Wilson expanded the federal government. We end with the fruit of the poisonous tree that was the Sykes-Picot agreement. Overall, this episode is the perfect explanation for why every libertarian must be anti-war.

Episode 87 of Boss Hog of Liberty is now available!

Jeremiah Morrell and Dakota Davis host a wandering, fun episode of East Central Indiana’s favorite podcast. Recurring guest Mark Brim tells us about New Castle randomness…He saw John Voight’s car!

Jeremiah, Sara, and Chris covered the Veterans Day ceremonies, including the re-dedication of the Doughboy. Jeremiah had an incident at the BMV. Dakota was published, again. Chase Peyton showed up late. Somehow the conversation focuses on social media. Mark wants out, Chase has been on it since the beginning of time, Dakota had a My Space?

On today’s #TBT episode, we swing back to the summer of 2017, back when I hosted the “Around the Republic Podcast” on Austin Petersen’s “The Libertarian Republic” network. During the summer of 2017, I had an interview series that was essentially the precursor to my current show here on the We Are Libertarians Network that you all know and love today.

This #TBT episode has me chatting with Young Americans for Liberty’s Cliff Maloney Jr. Cliff is the President of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), a non-profit youth organization based in Arlington, VA that boasts over 900 college chapters across the country. YAL’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists committed to winning on principle.

Listen as Cliff and I discuss his intro to the liberty movement, Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), and the “future” plans for YAL circa 2017.

Bio: Before YAL, Cliff served as National Youth Director for the Rand Paul Presidential Campaign and built an apparatus of 507 “Students for Rand” chapters. He has built field programs for over 22 campaigns, including dog-catcher, state legislature, congress, senate, and presidential. Cliff has appeared on FOX Business and Reason TV. He has been published in TIME, The Hill, Huffington Post, and the Washington Examiner. Cliff enjoys empowering freedom activists to find the most productive ways to advance the principles of liberty.

BNS 46: Midterm Election Results and Ending the Duopoly with The Red Headed Libertarian

Brian Nichols Show

https://briannichols.fireside.fm/mid-term-election-results-with-the-red-headed-libertarian

In one of the highest turnouts for the midterm elections since 1966, both the GOP and the Democratic Parties “won” in some way, shape, or form. However, the Libertarian Party, despite optimistic hopes lead by candidates like Gary Johnson and Larry Sharpe, fell flat.

Today, I’m joined by Twitter personality, Josie (aka: The Red Headed Libertarian). Together, we discuss the 2018 midterm election results, discuss what it means to be a libertarian in 2018, and what libertarians can/should do differently to have real electoral victories down the road.

She started tweeting on December 9, 2017 as an outlet for her politics, from a state that isn’t very receptive to liberty. Josie has since built a following of 17,000 people over the course of those 10 months and 28 days.

She is an award-winning pie baker and chili maker. She dabbles in the Boston film and television market once scored the role as Murderer/Millionaire John DuPont’s wife in an ID Discovery docuseries called “Guilty Rich”. Josie loves animals, chocolate, and Disney World. She is a professional artist.
