Politicians Can’t Keep You Safe | Guest: Nick Freitas | Ep 40

Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas sits down with Matt Kibbe to talk about his successful write-in campaign and the empty promises of mainstream politicians. As a former Green Beret, Freitas recognizes that everyone is responsible for his own safety and that anyone who promises to protect you is really just disguising his urge to control you.

Matt Kibbe

Matt Kibbe is President at Free the People, an educational foundation using video storytelling to turn on the next generation to the values of personal liberty and peaceful cooperation. He is also co-founder and partner at Fight the Power Productions, a video and strategic communications company. Kibbe is the host of BlazeTV’s Kibbe on Liberty, a popular podcast that insists that you think for yourself.

Dubbed “the scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is the author three books, most recently the #2 New York Times bestseller Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto.

He was senior advisor for a Rand Paul Presidential Super PAC in 2016, and later co-founded AlternativePAC to promote libertarian values.

In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, a national grassroots advocacy organization, and served as President until his departure in 2015. Steve Forbes said: “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.”

An economist by training, Kibbe did graduate work at George Mason University and received his B.A. from Grove City College. He serves at the whim of his awesome wife Terry, and their three objectivist cats, Roark, Ragnar and Rearden. Kibbe is a fanatical DeadHead, drinker of craft beer and whisky, and collector of obscure books on Austrian economics.

  • Nice that this guest faces the reality, and encourages everybody else to do the same, that no government can guarantee your safety or security, even when they promise to do so, and even when a document charges them to do so.

    However, how is this guy, a former Green Beret who has seen battle against our supposed enemies (the terrorists, who we largely created) not part of the problem? Has he repudiated his service (unlikely), recognizing that he was fighting for a lie?

    It’s great that someone who has seen real battle is counseling others to avoid war and seek peace. In this respect Tulsi Gabbard must be commended. But, it would be better if nobody volunteered for their stupid wars.

    My apologies if I have misread this guest.
