Well, we finally got our day, and I have to tell you I thought it went well. Huge thanks to John Stossel for taking two full hours of his show to bring light to the libertarian message. He did a terrific job moderating the event and for the most part I think the candidates did a good job of promoting the message of liberty.
But there were mistakes, and it became apparent to me after this debate that we are going to have an uphill battle bringing people into the third party camp with our current pool of candidates.
Johnson is awkward and always looks uncomfortable; McAfee is a current fugitive and Petersen comes off sounding like a street preacher on a soapbox. It doesn't matter which way we go the population as a whole are going to struggle with the messenger as much as the message.
Then it's on to women's soccer (WAIT DON'T LEAVE!) where we'll discuss the recent lawsuit four players filed against the sport for wage discrimination.
Finally, we'll look at the coming doctor shortage and see how a little free market choice could bring a more equitable distribution of physicians to the field. There's lots to cover today. Listen now.
