Should You Vote For Gary Johnson . . . Or Should You Vote At All?

With the 2016 presidential election just 11 days away, should you vote for Gary Johnson? Should you vote at all?

Aaron Keith Harris joins me and my co-hosts Brian and Carrie to make the libertarian case for voting for Gary Johnson. We also discuss the philosophical ins and out on voting.

Is it morally justifiable?

Is it an act of aggression?

Does your vote matter?

Will your vote even be counted?

Is there value in Libertarian Party candidates even if you don’t vote?

Read Aaron’s article making the case for Gary Johnson.

Libertarian Christians – Oxymoron or Perfect Fit? – LOF #18

The Sermon on the Mount Carl Bloch, 1890

Libertarian Christians – Oxymoron or Perfect Fit? – LOF #18

Dr. Norman Horn, founder of Libertarian Christians Institute, joins me and co-host Jackson Trigg to explore the sometimes contentious and controversial subject of libertarian Christians.

Here’s some of what Norman, Jackson and I discuss:

  • How the church I attended as a teenager used fear tactics and peer pressure to get people saved so they woudn’t have to spend eternal life burning in hell
  • What is a Christian?
  • Christian statists — from the left and the right — and why it’s not all their fault
  • How the bible portrays the State
  • Is Christian libertarianism more anarchist or minarchist?
  • The hypocrisy of right-wing Christians who claim to be “pro-life” yet are also pro-war
  • The libertarian Christian perspective on abortion
  • The phony Republican solutions that right-wing Christians stubbornly and hopelessly cling to
  • Different perspectives on the end times (do most Christians believe in the rapture?)
  • Why Norman started Libertarian Christian Institute (and some exciting new developments with LCI)
  • And much more!
