SORT BY Relevancy
Historian Rick Perlstein returns to Virtually Speaking to discuss his new book, The Invisible Bridge. Blogger extraordinaire Digby joins us as guest interviewer. RIck has described Digby this way:
My other favorite political writer, Heather Parton, blogs under the name “Digby.” Daily for over 10 years she’s been unleashing a fire hose of brilliance on the fecklessness of the Democrats, the craziness of the Republicans and especially the way that what we now call the “culture wars” has been seared into our national DNA at least since the Civil War. In the acknowledgments to “Nixonland,” I called her the other half of my brain.
We're delighted to have them both here tonight.
When it comes to the Libertarian Movement, Lew Rockwell has been there from the beginning and has seen it all. He was Ludwig von Mises' editor; a colleague and friend of Hayek, Rothbard: and worked on the Barry Goldwater and Ron Paul campaigns. He helped found the Mises Institute and describes himself as an anarcho-libertarian. He believes that in spite of the doom and gloom that we're feeling today, there's much to be optimistic about. Libertarianism is resonating with the young like never before. China and Vietnam are reaping the benefits of economic freedom in ways that most thought impossible just a few decades back. And the web of lies, which the current paradigm is built upon, are starting to crumble. Lew believes that the truth will always win out in the end.
Cliff Schecter, Avedon Carol & Jay Ackroyd comment on Rick Perlstein – historian and author of Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America, a New York Times bestseller picked as one of the best nonfiction books of the year by over a dozen publications; Before the Storm: Barry Goldwater and the Unmaking of the American Consensus, which won the 2001 Los Angeles Times Book Award for history and appeared on the best books of the year lists of The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Chicago Tribune and The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan

Guest Toby Farmer
My name is Toby Farmer and I am running for the Arizona Senate in legislative district 13. I live in Buckeye with my wife Missy of 5 years along with our three beautiful young sons. LD13 is an extremely large district that encompasses the West Valley and extends southwest through portions of Yuma.
I'm running because I want to help insure my family and my children have the opportunity to follow their passions and build something in an environment where the economy is ripe with opportunity. I want their ambitions and hard work to not be stifled by the government.
At age 19 I founded my first business and I've been a serial entrepreneur ever since. I currently own a technology company based here in Arizona and previously founded and ran a private equity and holdings firm. As a former Ronald Reagan Fellow at the Goldwater Institute I studied and worked on economic policy and I am a firm believer in free market principles.
What is happening to the GOP? What is happening to the Nation? Is the left destroying the country? And who/what is left to lean on when it is troubling. In this episode of Insane Government we are going to have the son of Barry Goldwater, who was the conservative/American icon in the most unpredictable time in American history. Barry Goldwater JR. has his long history in government and in the GOP and he will be joining us to discuss his views on the current views on the administration, the GOP itself, his thoughts on the 2012 elections and much more!
