195. Matt Kibbe - Why Did the Rand Paul Campaign Fizzle?


In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair welcomes in Matt Kibbe. Matt Kibbe is the founder of Freedomworks, as well as it's President before moving on to support Rand Paul with his "Concerned American Voters" Super PAC. He now runs, which stands to become an issues-oriented organization focusing on shifting power away from political cronies and Washington insiders and back to individuals and communities. 

Matt starts off by describing how he first learned about the ideas of liberty and individuals after reading  a dedication to Ayn Rand in the liner notes of a "Rush" album, and just how Rand's view of individualism began to shape the way he viewed politics. Matt and Marc go on to discuss the Rand Paul campaign, why it fell so short of expectations, the differences between the Ron Paul and Rand Paul campaigns, and why so many potential Rand supporters seemed to end up in the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump camps.
