Jacob Hornberger and the NY Times touts Freedom Watch on TV

A frequent guest of the Judge, Jacob Hornberger, wrote a nice article giving his own views of the debut of Freedom Watch on the Fox Business channel over the weekend.

The judge’s inaugural show was billed as the Tea Party Summit, and featured such politicians as Sarah Palin, Sen. Jim DeMint, former congressman Dick Armey, congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendall, Senate candidate Rand Paul, and libertarian congressman Ron Paul. What fascinated me about the program was how the judge, in his inimitable friendly and diplomatic style, caused the conservative and liberal panelists to point out where they stood in the context of libertarian positions on the burning issues of the day.

When was the last time you saw a television program in which statists were asked to explain or justify their position on the drug war, the Patriot Act, civil liberties, Iraq, Afghanistan, the U.S. government’s overseas military empire — and all from a standpoint of libertarianism? My answer: this was the first time ever.

Read the full article.

Hornberger also mentions the decent article about the show published in the New York Times on Sunday that is definitely worth checking out.

    Judge – what is stopping the request that MANY, MANY people want is the IMPEACHMENT of Obama? What is the law on that. I would think DESTROYING the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA would be the best reason. Why does he get away with doing just what he wants to do and GETTING AWAY WITH IT. He has done so much to be IMPEACHED. I for one want him either to RESIGN or let the IMPEACHMENT GO FORTH.

    Finally a program to get people to question the status quo and help our nation to rediscover our founding principles. Every major problem we face as a nation is a result as having strayed from the founding principles of limited government, passing along intergenrational debt and foreign entanglements.

    Thank you for a great show.

    not to sound like a pessimist, but I kinda think were f***ed, not only is the federal government growing bigger and bigger, but our education is so bad people can't even make educated votes.
    Libertarianism is the only thing that will save this country, but I don't think it's going to win, this balloon is going to inflate until it pops, and then we will have an uneducated rioting nation, a perfect tool for charismatic lunatics to manipulate… :(

    Sarah Palin's position on drugs as she stated on your inaugural show — letting people consume while keeping it illegal — might increase crime because it increases demand for substances but constricts supply. That is a recipe for higher prices and more violence.
