I appreciate the invitation to speak from Jeff Caldwell, the 3rd District coordinator for the Kansas Libertarian Party. This month at the Blue Valley Library at 151st St. and Antioch, Amanda Grosserode and I spoke at the Libertarian Party’s monthly meeting. Here is a 10-minute edited version of my speech, in which I address the libertarian roots of conservatism (and Republicanism), the non-libertarian actions of Republicans in recent years, the need for major spending reform, school choice, and ObamaCare.
