Here is the Libertarian Matt Waters Podcast from the John Fredericks Show!

Yes here it is:

Matt Waters podcast.

I thank John Fredericks (and yes he reads or at least monitors this blog!) for this interview.  And he was friendly to the LP candidate.

The interview – Waters is also well spoken.  He also talked about the national debt – $120 trillion in obligations.  Unsustainable.  A threat to national security.  Growth is not enough.

I have heard that there is a poll showing Kaine with only a five point lead and yes it appears to be real but it is from a source I am not familiar with.  But it also did not include Waters, either.  We’ll find out if this is an outlier.  I suspect it is.  Don’t be fooled; the best way to handle this election is:  Open up Virginia politics by helping Waters to get to ten percent.

    A vote for the Libertarian over Republican US Senate Candidate Corey Stewart is a vote for Democrat Tim Kaine.

    The Libertarian has zero chance of winning so why waste a vote when polls demonstrate Stewart is within striking distance of taking out Antifa loving Tim Kaine?

    John Fredericks votes for Democrats half the time so this interview is a koke. Of course John supports the Libertarian- it helps Kaine win.

    • Howard, first thanks for coming by and second I have been right there with you. Do I vote principle or vote to win? No third party candidate takes votes from another candidate unless he or she earns them. There are principles involved in voting – or should be. I guess the best vote is the one you do not regret the next day.

      Yes, if there were consistent polling showing that Waters could not get 10% and that Stewart can beat Kaine, then of course, strategic voting for the best likely result would be in order.

      However, this 50-45 poll is probably an outlier. Let’s wait and see. Until then, I am rooting for Waters to get ten percent and ultimately win the election. That will do more good than a wasted vote for Stewart if he cannot win.

      This has been stated as some sort of fact forever. You keep voting for the letter of your choice but last I checked, the lesser of two evils is still crap. Only way to change things is to change things.

    Sandy Sanders: Guess you missed the strategy by the Libertarian Wing of the Republican Party the
    #LibertyRising supporters of Nick Freitas. Read Jim Kacz former 2nd District Vice Chairman quote below before he was axed from his job.

    They are writing in Nick Freitas November 6th…. instead of Corey Stewart. No way to analyze this mess on November 7th… thanks to Mike Thomas and Jack Wilson and John Whitbeck’s leadership taking the RPV down in Virginia.

    First, thanks Vera for coming by and commenting.

    I think the best way to “analyze this mess” if you are unhappy with the GOP leadership is vote for Waters in the election. Now if your Congressman is okay and is in a close or potentially close race, get behind the Republican and blunt the so-called blue wave. But Stewart is very unlikely to win but Waters maybe can get 10% and get the LP ballot access. LP members can run for delegate and state senator against especially uncontested incumbents and ensure the people have a voice. Open up Virginia politics.

      Mr. Sanders:

      The Name of this blog is Virginia Right…. NOT Virginia Libertarian. Not Virginia Left. Not Virginia Progressive, Not Virginia Purple. And to be perfectly honest IMHO what is wrong with the Republican Party of Virginia is all these Libertarian and Tea Party inflitrators into our Republican Party.

      Libertarians as a general rule have in their platform- legalization of drugs including heroin and cocaine, and legalization of prostitution and pornography. For all those Christians out there when they read this they will gasp.

      I for one don’t want to return to the days before Eagle Forum’s Phyllis Schaffely fought tirelessly to remove Hustler Magazine from the 7-11’s so our children wouldn’t read that while slurping their Slushees.

      If people really research Libertarians- they support open borders and cheap labor which undermines liveable wages for American citizens. They oppose Trump’s tariff policies because they are “Free Traders” which is an oxymoron in a globalist world where every other nation applies tariffs to US GOODS so there is NO FREE TRADE… the Cato Institute is just wrong.

      No thanks.

      Not voting for your endorsed candidates Nick Freitas or Matt Waters or any other Libertarian you endorse. They can’t win in November so your argument to vote for Waters because Corey can’t win is a ridiculous argument.

        Thanks again Vera for coming by. I honestly do not know where to start. Let’s recopy your comments and I’ll try to explain. However, these are my thoughts [in brackets]:

        Libertarians as a general rule have in their platform- legalization of drugs including heroin and cocaine, and legalization of prostitution and pornography. For all those Christians out there when they read this they will gasp.

        [I do not agree with the legalization of drugs but I do think the criminal justice system has failed in eradicating drug use and sales. I do think gambling ought to be legal with appropriate regulation. To speak to the porn issue – porn involving adults marketed to adults is already legal. I think people can do what you – and I did too in those days – to influence private businesses to at least cover up the covers.]

        I for one don’t want to return to the days before Eagle Forum’s Phyllis Schaffely fought tirelessly to remove Hustler Magazine from the 7-11’s so our children wouldn’t read that while slurping their Slushees.

        [I love and admire Phyllis Schlafly and think she did a huge service to our nation in stopping the ERA but if a private business wants to sell adult magazines – with appropriate covering for kids – it is okay.]

        If people really research Libertarians- they support open borders and cheap labor which undermines liveable wages for American citizens. They oppose Trump’s tariff policies because they are “Free Traders” which is an oxymoron in a globalist world where every other nation applies tariffs to US GOODS so there is NO FREE TRADE… the Cato Institute is just wrong.

        [You are right in theory about the free trade – but the LP platform does call for reasonable border protections. I personally am not a free trader but I think President Trump is using tariffs to get better deals for USA. I love Trump’s anti-globalist foreign policy.]

        No thanks.

        Not voting for your endorsed candidates Nick Freitas or Matt Waters or any other Libertarian you endorse. They can’t win in November so your argument to vote for Waters because Corey can’t win is a ridiculous argument.

        [You have to vote as you see fit. But some Republicans WILL NOT vote for Stewart and I cannot see a path to victory for him. Don’t waste your vote and vote for Kaine or no one – vote Waters. So my path to victory is: Ten percent for Waters!]

        #MAGA

        [Right there with you! MAGA! Let me add – Tom White has not found my blogging inconsistent with the purpose of the Virginia Right blog. I am a Ron Paul right-libertarian.]

        Thank you again for coming by. Sandy

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
