    classical liberal, congress, conservative, constitution, government, house of representatives, libertarian, libertarian party, politics, potus, president, republican, rights, scotus, senate, supreme court, voluntary, white house

    Today I am joined by a familiar face (or voice, rather) or the We Are Libertarians Network- Chloe Anagnos! Chloe is a writer and digital marketer and has been a contributor for the American Institute for Economic Research
    (AIER) since 2017. Her work has been the subject of articles in FOX News, The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), USA Today, CNN Money, and WIRED. She has been a writer, commentator, and panelist for media outlets around the country on subjects like political marketing, campaigning, and social media. She is also the Chapter Leader for AFF-Indianapolis.

    Chloe and I start our conversation today discussing our roles in AFF (America's Future Foundation) in both Indianapolis and Philadelphia, respectively. AFF is a professional development network for individuals who believe in the power of personal liberty, entrepreneurship, and innovation, channeled through free-markets, to promote positive social change. AFF events bring together like-minded advocates in with each respective community to network, learn from each other, discuss key issues, and ultimately collaborate to improve themselves and the city as a whole.

    Both Indy and Philly AFF-chapters held seminars in recent months discussing the impacts of the opioid epidemic and the free-market solutions that are available to help mitigate the situation. Chloe and I discuss these AFF events at length, which then leads us to a more generic discussion about healthcare and the free-market solutions that are out there to help "fix" our broken healthcare system.

    classical liberal, congress, conservative, constitution, government, house of representatives, libertarian, libertarian party, politics, potus, president, republican, rights, scotus, senate, supreme court, voluntary, white house

    Liberty Memes, Censorship, and Elections, Oh My!

    On today's episode, I'm joined by Matt Kibbe! Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. He is also an Executive Producer at CRTV, where he produces “The Deadly Isms" and "Kibbe on Liberty".

    Listen as we first start off discussing Matt's first steps into libertarianism via the band Rush and their "2112" album, which pointed Matt towards the readings of Ayn Rand. Next, we discuss the recent censorship on Facebook of popular libertarian page, "Liberty Memes" and what libertarians should do in response.

    Next, we discuss Matt's organization, "Free the People", which is an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty by reaching those “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. After that, we discuss how libertarians should vote in the 2018 midterms, strategic voting, and the "lesser of two evils" argument. We also touch on two strong Libertarian campaigns in Gary Johnson for U.S. Senate in New Mexico and Larry Sharpe for Governor in New York.

    We start to conclude our conversation by discussing potential outcomes in the 2018 midterms, as well as how our nation will look after 2020 and 2024. And finally, we wrap up our discussion by looking at Matt's book, " Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto."

    Matt's Bio: Matt Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. We reach the “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. Kibbe is also an Executive Producer at CRTV, where he produces “The Deadly Isms,” a documentary series about the dangers of all flavors of authoritarianism.

    He is the Co-Founder and Partner at Fight the Power Productions, a strategic communications firm focused on video production, social media branding, and compelling storytelling.

    He is also a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Austrian Economics Center in Vienna. In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, where he served as President for 11 years. Steve Forbes said, “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.”

    Against his better judgment, Kibbe occasionally gets involved in politics, serving as Senior Advisor to a Rand Paul SuperPAC, and creating AlternativePAC to support liberty candidates. Back when Yoda was a teenager, Kibbe worked as Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, as Budget Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and at the Republican National Committee.

    Dubbed “The Scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is most recently author of the #2 New York Times bestseller, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. In his spare time he appears on Old Media, including FOX News, MSNBC, CNN and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. Most of his best material is lifted from his three liberty-minded cats, Roark, Ragnar, and Rearden.

    On today's episode, I'm joined by Nicholas Veser! Veser is best known for his role at Being Libertarian, doing his “Daily Headline” videos (among others), but has well over a decade experience in media production.

    Today, Nick joins me to discuss how we can market liberty to those outside the libertarian echo chambers. Sometimes, we have a habit of over-complicating our messaging and arguing about things that simply don't matter to those outside of our libertarian circles. Together, we discuss ways to break out of our echo chambers via grassroots and digital media and how to make liberty win again!

    Bio: J. Nicholas Veser began his career at an early age on stage and in front of the camera. During his attendance at West Virginia University on a full theatre scholarship, he became interested in hospitality and worked in the industry while performing on Equity stages throughout the Northeast. His creative and leadership strengths eventually landed him Director of Business Travel Sales for The Ritz Carlton, Battery Park in Manhattan. Soon after, he was drawn to the warm weather and endless opportunity of television in South Florida. He began his career with an International Media Company as a Creative Director and ultimately became the Senior Producer for several shows produced by the company. In 2008, he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Production where he thrived in the free and creative environment that he created for the many Scriptwriters, Production Coordinators, Editors, Traffic Coordinators, and Directors of Photography. Under his leadership, the team achieved tremendous success including 32 Telly Awards won over a 5-year span. In 2014, Nicholas left his career in Production after 11 years to own and operate a successful tech company.

    Although any degree of success is not without its fair share of challenges in 2015 he was faced with his most difficult hurdle yet when an unethical Florida Attorney General crippled his small family owned tech company. This only served to strengthen his resolve and he along with his wife Dawn have now become champions of the Liberty Movement in this country. Big business, political donations, and corruption led to the fight of their lives, and they have made a conscious decision to stand up in the face of injustice until the truth is revealed. Through all of his success and adversity he still considers his greatest achievement to be his 6-year-old son Ryan.

    On today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show, I am joined by Michael T. Hutchins, author of Irreconcilable Politics: Our Rights Under a Just Government. Michael was trained as an economist and has over thirty years of experience in finance. Much of his career was in investment banking at Salomon Brothers and UBS. He is currently the executive vice president at Freddie Mac, responsible for the investments and capital markets division. Hutchins earned his PhD in economics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

    In Irreconcilable Politics, Michael explores successful models in which differing political views exist yet do not impinge on agreements being reached, and also dissects the dynamics of modern social decision-making.

    Listen as we discuss the theory of “collectivity,” needed reform to government structure, and modern social decision-making in the 21st century. Later, we discuss the concepts of voluntary government and the interrelationship between political ideology and centralized governmental decisions.

    We conclude by taking a closer look at collective rules, services, and decisions, and why voting, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press are not in and of themselves sufficient control rights for citizens of a diverse country like the United States and discuss how our divided nation struggling to reach political agreement and how the structure of the federal and state governments interfere with this effort.

    Today, I am joined yet again by Remso Martinez! He I the author of "Stay Away From The Libertarians!" and is best known for his podcast, the "Remso Republic".

    Censorship and deplatforming of conservatives and libertarians once sounded like a conspiracy theory. But in recent months, we've watched as the likes of Alex Jones, InfoWars, and even Gavin McInnes have been banned from social media giants like Facebook and Twitter. Jones and his conspiracy theory site, InfoWars.com were often thought to be the only target of these media giants, however, listen as Remso and I discuss his own experience with targeted attempts by leftists and social media platforms to silence his work and pages.

    If there's one thing to take away from today's episode, it's that targeted censorship of right-leaning voices isn't exclusive to conspiracy theorists and provocateurs... it can happen to anyone... even you!

    Yes, Keith a Democrat… a Bernie Sanders supporting Democrat at that! But that didn’t stop us from having an absolutely phenomenal discussion about the issues that New York State is facing. Listen as we discuss Keith’s support of democratic socialism (and my rebuttal), welfare, universal education, universal healthcare, and the value of putting people over party.

    This episode is the exact reason I started The Brian Nichols Show. Having Keith on allowed us to have an intelligent, respectful conversation despite our differences and actually have an opportunity to find some common ground.
