Editor in Chief of Reason.com/Reason.tv, Nick Gillespie Back for Powerful, Thought Provoking CYInterview You Won’t Want to Miss: Opinions on the President-Elect, The State of America, Its Politics and Future, More
The 2016 election cycle was particularly contentious. Now, by all outward appearances, it seems as if the incoming president elect will not enjoy a honeymoon period with either the press or, if polls are to be believed, with a large segment of the American public. The United States of America faces a host of challenges and many people are looking for fresh ideas and innovative ways of dealing with those challenges. Enter libertarians. Nick Gillespie is the Editor in Chief of Reason.com and Reason.tv. He has joined us previously on CYInterview, to share his brand of unique and erudite insight into American politics and social evolution. Well, Nick is back and we are glad he is.
America is facing significant challenges. The nation is saddled with enormous debt. The recovery from the 2008 financial crisis has been slow. The political system in Washington has been almost completely taken over by self-interest and a lack of comprise. Blind partisanship has replaced the principle of putting country first. In many cases, holding office has turned into a ticket to increase personal wealth and fame, not serve the people and the public interest. This is not to say that we do not have many good people working as elected officials. We do. However, throw even the best people into a system that has been thoroughly contaminated by the institutionalization of self-interest and the nation’s prospects dim. Indeed, we are approaching a blackout. Ladies and gentlemen, these are tough times. But Donald J. Trump is not the answer.
