I haven’t been able to post for a few days, between an exhausting (but fantastic) trip to Los Angeles and two days in the car on the way to the Ludwig von Mises Institute, where I’ll be spending June and July.
Below is the speech I gave at Nullify Now! Los Angeles. At 20:03 I talk about how the various left-wing attacks on me over the years actually helped me conquer important character flaws, and persuaded me to treat my opponents more respectfully. I then thank people for having stuck by me through all this. My voice actually cracks [!] at the end of this section.
Starting around 33:00 I explain why I feel as I do about the federal government. And that includes foreign policy, a subject about which not everyone in that room agreed with me. But I simply explained myself forthrightly, and people seem to have respected my position.
Even though I was exhausted and feeling under the weather, this may have been one of my best appearances ever. Thanks to the organizers and attendees for making it possible.
