Some of senator Jim -- -- Tea Party candidates want if -- Tea Party supposed to stand for less government limited government that sounds good for freedom.
But then senator dement said this on Fox News you can be a fiscal conservative.
And obviously it's.
I'm not so happy and I don't want the -- I'm a libertarian I want limited government that's my most important -- so will I get that from the Tea Party in the new divided government.
Tucker Carlson says no.
-- a Fox News contributor also the founder of the daily caller.
A web site which has been called an alternative to the Huffington Post then that's a good thing to have so.
Good year this election for liberty.
I would say -- back.
That their health care bill now law passed out weigh almost everything that's happened in the last fifteen years just in its massive expansion of government.
But at the same time infuriated large segments of the population.
So there's a -- movement against big government so next.
Doesn't sound mix the election brought in a lot of people who hate the health care.
Election Tea Party like the solution clearly those are positive movements.
But I don't think -- day address.
The vastness of the problem.
I mean that the truth is that the government is going broke.
Because of entitlements when -- the top five expenditures by size.
Federal expenditures are Medicare Medicaid Social Security defense and interest on the debt.
Not too many Tea Party people were burning their Medicare cards.
And that's what I was getting through I haven't heard any talk from them about killing those or reducing those biggest programs to -- back the polling data show the opposite.
That some of them say.
We want smaller government but don't touch her Medicare -- -- just to be clear there are a lot closer to the solution Harry Reid -- I mean there I think a lot better.
Than the status quo as we've seen the last two years but actually write the reason.
Entitlements -- problem is because there really popular when things that are unpopular part of the problem right and they go away so anybody who tells you that we're going to reduce the size of government dramatically by getting rid of waste fraud and abuse is line.
Because waste fraud and abuse while offensive and I'm in favor getting rid of them.
Comprise a very small percentage of federal spending so if you really want to address spending you have to address -- -- in middle class entitlements and the military and the military.
It's not that.
Libertarians are saying we want.
Cut the troops short it's I hope that people will say what's the mission.
That I we have 60000 troops in Europe and 30000 in Korea thirtieth as that's exactly -- right paperwork commuting American troops into a situation where they can be killed.
You -- to justify -- very clear language not in nineteen paragraph but in the sentence why you're doing it.
And no one has explain what the mission in Afghanistan is at least the way and I can understand.
But I don't hear any talk about this in the Tea Party.
I think you well I hear I spent a lot of time around the Tea Party.
Predatory last election and I -- -- whispering up I mean you do you hear people so why are we doing this again and Ron Paul by the way.
Who led kind of a -- Tea Party movement in the last election cycle -- 2008 cycle.
He is fans is acolytes I think make up a pretty large percentage of of the Tea Party -- no question Ron Paul has been saying this for -- that's right and people who are on his ship will go along with -- what about the social issues abortion.
Abortion is a question on which honest libertarians disagree if you believe that they fetus is a human life than that.
Human life has the rights that any human life pass.
And you -- bridge those rights and she would vehemently defend the right to life.
And that's a consistently returning just a lot of libertarians are being put twisters and a lot of -- -- including me.
And the port choices are saying we don't think it's a life -- a war that has a right to terminated as long as it's living inside her that's right if we don't believe that that I and it's no more morally significant an appendectomy and it doesn't make any sense -- restricted in anyway.
And I think we libertarians -- this little group when we all know each other yet a lot of people don't know that you -- heart and you don't self described.
I so why try not to do that the one impact -- -- a libertarian family unfortunately California had been on libertarians.
My whole life and I love them they're smarter than ever for the Southern California connection lot of libertarians in Southern California.
-- is that you keep going west to get away from status to wind up at the Pacific Ocean unless you can pay for the flight to Hawaii used remain.
There are a lot of them there there are -- in Oregon there.
And that I think -- they're living in bunkers in the woods there a lot of libertarian stockpiling weapons and food and aren't gonna happen -- now.
As they ought to be.
But no I don't like orthodoxy of any kind in the moment because I am a temperamental and such would kinds -- -- -- this -- you have to believe this.
I I raise the middle finger I can him.
Okay well I'm happy to call myself politically thank you doctor --
