Good episode? Give it some love!
In today's flagship podcast, Marc is joined by a man widely viewed as one of if not the "most libertarian" members of the House of Representatives, Congressman Justin Amash! Congressman Amash explains how libertarian ideas first came to him largely through intuition before learning more about free market economics through the work of Friedrich Hayek and others. Amash describes what it's like to be the "loneliest Republican in Congress" - as he was recently referred to by CNN - for largely breaking with the Republican Party and even with fellow members of the House Freedom Caucus on many issues. Amash goes on to discuss working with Democrats like Tulsi Gabbard on bills related to the War on Drugs and foreign policy, what he's most proud of as a U.S. Congressman, and reveals just what he fears the most for the future of the U.S.
