The #MyLibertyStory campaign

Hello,
Recently I listened to an interview of Adam Kokesh on the Tom Woods show. I honestly say the interview filled my head with many ideas but one of them is from a comment made that there isn’t enough stories of how people became libertarians. So what I have done is start the #MyLibertyStory campaign. A campaign where I’m encouraging all libertarian to post a video on YouTube talking about how they became a libertarian and how they developed their libertarian views (books, podcasts, etc.) and put #MyLibertyStory in the title of the video making these videos easy to find.
The hope is that is enough people tag these videos, link to their favorite blogs and books in the video description a few things will happen:
– we can better assess what brings people to liberty
– we can help litter YouTube with videos of libertarian talking about what it means to them (more so that we have already)
– get to know each other and make the growing movement feel more close knit.
So if you create a #MyLibertyStory video please post it on FB.com/MYLibertyStory

The Difference between Public and Private Debt

A Longer form response on this issue in summary

– All government debt is not used to pay for infrastructure, and often paying for things with no return

– Governance of Public institutions are more political with more fragmented interests that a private institution leading to worse usage of capital from debt

– Government unlike private institutions doesn’t pay back its debt once its investment matures but rolls it over so when rates do rise, it’s super problematic

– Makes it hard monetary policy authorities to raise rates when they need to forcing them to choose between a budget crisis and inflation
