In today's episode, host Marc Clair welcomes a true "Libertarian Lion", Michael Pickens! Michael is the founder and creator of "Libertarian Leadership", which helps to train libertarian candidates around the country, and empower them to take charge of a campaign and effectively communicate ideas, both through seminars and his book of the same name.
First, Michael explains why he calls himself a "Libertarian Lion", and why he felt a lion to be a better symbol for his political activism for liberty than the porcupine. Marc and Michael discuss the recent Libertarian Party National Convention, the election of the Johnson/Weld ticket, and dig into some of the politicking that went on between ballots for the Vice Presidential nomination. Michael lays out the case for why anyone with a passion for liberty can run for office, and how his programs help empower them to do so, and to succeed!
