In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair welcomes in Chad Peace of the Independent Voter Project! Chad explains how, after growing up in a political family turned him away from politics, he was inspired by the presidential campaigns of Ron Paul to become a political activist. Chad would go on to be a leading figure in drafting Rand Paul to run for the U.S. Senate, and the rest, as they say, is history. Chad describes his current involvement with the Independent Voter Project and EndPartisanship.org, and how these organizations intend to change the political landscape by ending partisanship, starting with the way debates and elections favor the "Big Two" parties of the Democrats and the Republicans. After Marc disparages California's new "Top Two" voting system, Chad sets him straight by explaining how the process actually weakens the power of the Democrats and Republicans in that state. Marc and Chad discuss what made Ron Paul so unique during his Presidential runs, and ponder the idea of whether Bernie Sanders will take any of the "Ron Paul vote" away from Rand Paul.
Then, in Marc's most fired up wrap-up rant to date, your host, your guide and your shining beacon of liberty lets off some steam towards libertarians and anarchists who decry any political action whatsoever. You DON'T want to miss this one (or do you?)
