In today's episode, the Lions of Liberty celebrate the New Year the only way they know how - by drinking copious amounts of adult beverages and talking liberty! Marc is  joined by Felony Friday host John Odermatt and "The Godfather" of Lions of Liberty, Howie Snowdon, for a Liberty New Year's for the ages!

What are the most unheralded liberty news stories of 2017? Who is more influential: the Libertarian Party or the Lions of Liberty? Shoud libertarians always favor tax cuts, even if they add to the national debt? These questions are answered while many more are posed, in this New Year's edition of "Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor!" 

Happy New Year's, Lions!

On today's episode of Felony Friday host John Odermatt is joined by fellow Lion of Liberty, host of our flagship Monday program, Marc Clair. John and Marc kick things off by first looking back to update a case covered way back on Episode 55 of Felony Friday titled "A Rumor Sent a Teenage Girl to Prison for a Brutal Murder in Vegas," which was an interview with the Intercept's Jordan Smith. The first link below details the story, but the podcast is a must listen if you haven't heard it yet. 

Next, John and Marc spent some time sorting through the mess of horrible laws that hit the books in the 2018. Laws impacting everything from "ban the box" to parental leave to buying ammo. Lastly, John and Marc wrap things up by playing "Is it a Crime and Should they do Time?"

327. Naughty or Nice 2017!

00:0000:00

Yo ho ho and a bottle of Liberty! It's that time of year again, when we partake in some holiday cheer and adult beverages for our annual "Naughty or Nice" special! In the show Marc is joined by Rico, Brian and Odie to cast judgment upon various figures in the political world and whether they were "naughty" or "nice" for liberty in 2017. After dishing out a few easy "Nice" awards, we get into a few more contentious characters such as LP Chairman Nicholas Sarwark, "reformer" Saudi Prince Alwaleed, Gary Johnson, Joe Rogan, Ajit Pai, Rand Paul and of course, the POTUS himself, Donald Trump. Enjoy this tipsy look back at the biggest names in politics and liberty for the last year!

PLUS! Stay tuned after the show to hear about the biggest giveaway for new Pride members we've ever had!

On today's episode of Felony Friday, host John Odermatt is joined by Colin Kreiger. Colin is a member of the Lions of Liberty Pride (you can join here), but that's not the reason why he's on the show. The reason Colin was asked to share his story on Felony Friday is because he serves as a remarkable example for others that it's never too late to turn your life around. In fact, Colin credits the ideas of liberty for being a main catalyst in providing the blueprint and the motivation to turn his life around. 

Colin has made some mistakes in his life and paid dearly for them. He was kicked out of his University's criminology program for getting caught with less than a gram of weed. Later, he was kicked out of college altogether for fighting and resisting arrest. Over the course of the next few years Colin sold and used drugs, until his life spiraled out of control, which culminated in an incident with police where gunfire was exchanged and he's very lucky to have not been killed. Ultimately, Colin served two years nine months in a level 4 max security prison.

On this week's Electric Libertyland...

Host Brian McWilliams talks Roy Moore's Alabama defeat, the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and the Congressional Office of Compliance's apparent lack of any records about sexual harassment settlements. Brian then discusses Section 702 of FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act), which allows the NSA & FBI to spy on Americans' electronic communications. Section 702 was scheduled to expire/sunset on Dec 31st, 2017. However, the likelihood of that happening is slim, and Brian explains why and how it will likely live on. On the bright side, however, the Pentagon is finally getting audited!

On today's show, Marc welcomes back a guest who first appeared in the early days of the podcast, Shayne Wissler! Shayne is the author of two books about individual rights - "For Individual Rights" and "Reason and Liberty: The Foundations of Civilization", which was just released in it's 3rd edition. Shayne describes how his questioning of his Mormom upbringing eventually led him to question everything and delve deeper into philosophical justifications for individual rights, resulting in his two books on the subject. Shayne and Marc discuss concepts such as induction, the "is/ought gap", meaning, and so much more on this philosophical journey into the root concepts behind his justification for the concepts of individual rights.

On today's episode of Felony Friday Aaron David Seidel joins host John Odermatt to share why he's fighting for Ohio Governor John Kasich to grant him a full pardon. In August of 2004 Aaron, at 18 years old, was convicted of one count of attempted murder, for the shooting of his then step-father.

Aaron was sentenced to five years in prison, and was released in 2009. The five-year sentence was a reflection of the mitigating circumstances which lead to the shooting. Since the commission of his crime, Aaron has committed to a life of self-actualization through the service of others.

While still in prison, Aaron passed his GED exam and attended college at Marion Technical Center in business management. Aaron is currently finishing his undergraduate degree in both environmental geoscience, and applied mathematics. He has ambitions to go to graduate school or join the military. However, the walls that society builds around those with a criminal record is holding Aaron back from reaching his full potential. This is why Aaron is petitioning Ohio Governor John Kasich for a full pardon. Aaron has aspirations to get his PhD., he wants to be the best man he can be for his family and maximize his contributions to the world.

In this week's #ElectricLibertyland, Brian McWilliams takes a look at whether Donald Trump has inadvertently inspired the TRUE "Libertarian Moment" that so many have said passed us by after the run of Ron Paul and the failure of Rand Paul and Gary Johnson in 2016. While it may not be the epic 50th episode so many have been looking forward to, it's damn thought provoking.

**Episode was pre-recorded several days before airing out of necessity, so excuse any news updates regarding gropings, pokings, firings, etc., that may have broken**

On today's 325th episode of the flagship Lions of Liberty podcast, Marc is joined once again by the man largely responsible for inspiring the creation of this very program, Dr. Ron Paul! Dr. Paul discusses his new book "The Revolution at Ten Year's", looking back at his two Presidential runs in 2008 and 2012, and moreso looking forward at the long term effects of the "Revolution." Then, Dr. Paul answers questions from Lions of Liberty Pride members!

But that's not all, folks! Marc and the crew reveal the contentious results of the Liberty Draft polling!
