Gary Johnson and William Weld on Hillary, Trump, and Why You Should Vote Libertarian:

Can Ethereum Restore Online Freedom & Transform the Internet?:

Produced by Zach Weissmueller. Camera by Alex Manning. Music by Podington Bear.

Reason TV’s Zach Weissmueller sat down with Byrne in Overstock’s headquarters in Utah to talk about Byrne’s return to the helm of the company after taking a medical leave of absence (0:53 – “I’m actually healthier than I’ve been in about 30 years.”), his enthusiasm for bitcoin and other blockchain-based technology (4:18 – “For five thousand years, society has accumulated these [centralized] institutions like barnacles on our hull, and now the blockchain lets us scrape those off.”), his new venture t0 that brings the blockchain to the financial sector (5:26 – “We now have built a blockchain version of Wall St.”), his support of Gary Johnson (11:23 – “He’s ‘pro-freedom.'”), and his disdain for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton (15:09 – “I don’t consider Donald Trump a businessman.”).

  1. 10:18 – they've got to figure out a way to make blockchain creation a 'stock split' and not making new money that only some people get.

  2. Robert Noll McKenney

    Can anyone tell me why Overstock prices are 30-40% higher than anyone else? Is there a secret I don't know about?

  3. Chuck Shummer calls for a ban on something that he doesn't understand (is incapable of understanding?) and we're supposed to take him seriously? The IRS announces that they are going to consider bitcoin a speculative investment and require taxpayers to file their bitcoin capital gains on every transaction? Hey IRS, how about instead, I file the losses in purchasing value that my dollars undergo every year?

  4. Santiago Broncano

    can murica (and Europe to some extend) stop hijacking words?

    it's getting ridiculous

    and you're destroying your own language.

  5. Gary Johnson tends to be pro-freedom, on certain issues, at certain times, and in respect to certain constituencies-i.e. marijuana smokers, women who want late term abortions, and gay marriage. Other people, issues, and constituencies…not so much!
    He shamelessly endorses the "global warming" fraud, as well as…government mandated vaccinations, Constitutional sound money and ending the FED, and an altogether non-intervention America First foreign policy. He also favors existing Civil Rights interventions against private property.

    No abolition of the EPA, FDA Dept. of Education, BATF, DEA, FBI, NSA, etc.!
    He is also very inconsistent on Second Amendment issues,as is Weld.

    NO LIBERTARIAN HERE! We could, and should, have, done better.
