You’ve just tuned in to The Daily Beat!

This week on the Daily Beat: We chat with Todd Seavey, blogger, political commentator, and author of the recently published “Libertarianism for Beginners” about the political philosophy of libertarianism and its growth in contemporary American politics.

Today on the Daily Beat, Wednesday August 24, 2016: We continue our chat with Todd Seavey, who describes the United States Constitution as a libertarian document and discusses his lack of faith in democracy, as evidenced by the lows of the 2016 presidential election. He also talks about what it would have been like to have a semi-libertarian–Rand Paul–running as a major party candidate.
