Todd Hagopian is an Oklahoma Corporation Commission Candidate and Libertarian Activist.
Matt Kibbe talks with Todd Hagopian, Libertarian candidate for Oklahoma corporation commissioner, about the increasingly fractured nature of America’s political parties. The nastiness of primary contests and the rise of different factions within the Republican and Democrat Parties points toward a seismic shift that could be coming in the near future. At the same time, third parties are getting marginalized and excluded from debates and even polls, as the political duopoly tries to retain its power.
FritzCast welcomes it's first ever guest, The Libertarian-In-Chief, Todd Hagopian! This episode opens with a snippet of the "Bern Miser" parody from last week, and then I dive right into the House results on Article I and II of impeachment, moving forward to the Senate sometime in January. Then, onto my discussion with Todd! Todd speaks about his initial campaign for Libertarian National Committee chairmen and what ultimately made him step aside from that race; We also discuss the evolution that is needed in the Libertarian Party, building smaller local victories into bigger national wins. Our jam packed discussion includes: The Libertarian stance on impeachment, the current standing of the Democratic Presidential race, and even evaluated liberty icons like Rand Paul and Justin Amash!

The Libertarian Party is the largest, pro-liberty political organization in the United States, yet the LP has never surpassed 3.5% in a nationwide election. So, what's the problem...? Is it the message, or the party? Well, my guest today believes that part of the problem is the party, which is why he's made it his goal to bring his private sector expertise to the LP and is seeking to be the next chairman of the Libertarian Party. Returning to The Brian Nichols Show is the "Libertarian-in-Chief", Todd Hagopian! Todd joined the show last year to discuss the Libertarian Party, the greater libertarian movement, and to dig into the upcoming 2020 presidential election and who should lead the LP as the nominee. This time, Todd joins the show to discuss his candidacy to be the next chairman of the LP, with his main goals being to professionalize the party, create consistent branding for the party, and to focus on winning targeted, local elections. Later, Todd answers questions from the audience, ranging from "What are some mistakes the LP has made, and what are some things they've done right?" to "How important is it for the LP to engage the youth vote, including the newest batch of voters in Gen Z?" As I wrap up the show, I give my take on Todd's candidacy (oh, and a special surprise, too!).

That's a question I get asked often. You can be an activist, an entrepreneur, a media personality, or politics. That's why I decided to become a member of the largest pro-liberty party in the United States, the Libertarian Party. I started my show with the goals to educate, enlighten, and inform, while also advancing the principles of liberty. The LP is the largest political party in America that, at its core principles, embraces the values of individual liberty, property rights, and non-aggression. The other two major parties have embraced tribal warfare versus principled debate. It's time we stop feeding the beast and put our money where out mouths are. That means putting petty bickering and nonsensical arguments aside and actually advancing liberty. The LP, like every political party, has its flaws. But instead of focusing on those flaws and tossing stones from the cheap seats, it's time we take personal responsibility (like we promote on a regular basis) and take some responsibility in making the LP the best it can be.
