6/1 Peter Thiel is a Threat to the Free Press & Libertarian Debate Recap!

June 1, 2016

Libertarian Billionaire Peter Thiel funds lawsuits against Gawker and threatens the free press and a Bloomberg libertarian columnist writes a dumb column about it. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets booed at the Libertarian Convention for talking with a bit of rationality on carbon emissions. Phone bank for Bernie in California. Austin Peters is a crazy pure Libertarian. Libertarians are confused about the role of government in their debate and suggest that Jetpacks will save us. Gary Johnson causes more controversy by saying he would have voted for the Civl Rights Act and it gets crazier from there and your calls and IMs.
