Finneran's Wake

Show Notes

Hector Roos is a candidate representing the Libertarian Party in Florida’s gubernatorial race. 

For all intents and purposes, your choice of political party in America is binary: Republican or Democratic, or so you’re told. Doubtless, this preserves us from the pitfalls of a parliamentary system, but isn’t it frustrating to know that, in this freest of lands, your options are so narrowly constrained? 

Libertarianism offers a much-desired alternative. Hector Roos is here to offer exactly that. 

From this episode, you’ll learn…

Whether or not government is necessary; the difference between libertarianism and anarchism; between having ordered liberty and being an untamed libertine; what distinguishes the Libertarian Party from the Republican and the Democratic Parties; if our Founding Fathers were truly libertarians at heart; the morality of shipping illegal aliens out of your state; Patrick Henry’s forgotten message, “Give me Liberty or…”; the constitutionality of abortion; the Maoist mind; and much more!
