Journalist Mark Ames (@MarkAmesExiled), of Pando.com joins us today to discuss how Libertarian Gary Johnson’s candidacy is a scam. Michael in for Sam today.
How libertarians like Ron and Rand Paul and Gary Johnson benefit from the projection of civil liberties values by naive supporters. How did libertarians rebrand themselves as not horrible beginning in the 70s. The financing of Gary Johnson’s career by private prisons and his history as a hardcore “law and order” governor. Whether it’s accurate to call Trump a fascists. Trump and Bernie’s similarity in that they suggest political solutions rather than neoliberal market reforms.
On the fun half – defending public sector unions, Glenn Beck’s meeting with Facebook, Alex Jones on Beck’s meeting with Facebook and his pot belly, Noam Chomsky on voting (and voting for Hillary over Trump), plus your calls and IMs!
