Show Summary: How can you tell if someone running for office will do a good job? How can you ensure that he or she will improve your party, not get your party further into debt? How can you figure out whether this candidate is going to uphold libertarian principles and take a thoughtful, incremental approach to your party’s problems? Today we ask the hard questions, with the up and coming candidate for LNC chair, Jacob Lamont. Is he principled? Is he honest? We think so. This show you cannot miss!

About the Guest: Jacob Lamont has been an activist for over 26 years and became officially active in the libertarian party in 2014. Prior to that, he was resistant to joining any groups or political organizations due to his fierce individualistic nature. Having been homeschooled and raised in a home with libertarian ideals, Jacob’s evolution into a politically active libertarian was an organic extension of his upbringing. Shortly after joining the libertarian party he was elected to the region one director position and still holds that position to this day. In 2015 he ran for office in the 42nd District of Washington State representative. Currently he is a member of several political discussion groups in his county; one secular and the other conservative. He spends a lot of time focusing on outreach efforts to explain libertarian ideology and in organizing libertarian movements. He holds the Libertarian Statement of Principles close to his heart and knows that it is the underpinning of the libertarian party. He believes that it is The Statement of Principles that set us apart from any other political group.

 

About the Host: Johnny “Rocket” Adams was the creator and host of “The Johnny Rocket Launch Pad – Libertarian Rock n’ Roll Experience” and now “BLAST OFF with Johnny Rocket!” He’s also a musician, graphic artist, author, and former Chief Warrant Officer. Johnny spent his early days earning his stripes as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army. Back stateside, Johnny immersed himself in the classic works of Murray Rothbard, Henry Hazlitt, and Ludwig von Mises. From there the AnCap known as “Johnny Rocket” was born. Speaking truth to power from your cell phone tower, Johnny digests the philosophy of liberty and brings them to the man on the street on a weekly basis. Johnny Rocket was also the front-man of the rockabilly group “Hot Roddin’ Romeos” and puts pencil to paper with the critically acclaimed comic series “The Liberty Force.” New York Times best-selling author and podcast host Tom Woods calls Johnny Rocket “one of the most entertaining figures in the liberty movement.”
