80: From Leftist to Libertarian with Steffi Cole
I dare say that most of us know folks within the libertarian movement who came from the more conservative side of things, heck, with yours truly being one of them. But those who ventured to libertarianism from the left are much fewer in our ranks, despite them sharing our many of our values.
Today's guest is one of those unicorns who went from leftist to libertarian, and I wanted to have her on my show to discuss her conversion as she started going down the libertarian rabbit hole; the one and only Steffi Cole.
Listen as Seffi talks about her path to libertarianism from the left, her involvement in libertarian politics and political campaigns (like Austin Petersen's US Senate campaign), and more!
Bio: Steffi was born and raised in Michigan and "has been a passionate, hardworking nerd ever since she was little". After learning about economics and watching lots of videos about government in 2009, she found herself in the Tea Party movement. She became a huge fan of Ron Paul during his 2012 Presidential campaign. In 2017-2018, she volunteered doing social media, graphic design, and volunteer training for the Austin Petersen for US Senate campaign. She is currently a YouTuber, Brand Ambassador for 1776 United, and liberty promoter for products, people, and ideas. She is on a journey to learn as much as she can about history, government, and the Constitution!

- The Libertarian Party: What's the best way to advance liberty?
That's a question I get asked often. You can be an activist, an entrepreneur, a media personality, or politics.
That's why I decided to become a member of the largest pro-liberty party in the United States, the Libertarian Party. I started my show with the goals to educate, enlighten, and inform, while also advancing the principles of liberty.
The LP is the largest political party in America that, at its core principles, embraces the values of individual liberty, property rights, and non-aggression. The other two major parties have embraced tribal warfare versus principled debate. It's time we stop feeding the beast and put our money where out mouths are.
That means putting petty bickering and nonsensical arguments aside and actually advancing liberty.
The LP, like every political party, has its flaws.
But instead of focusing on those flaws and tossing stones from the cheap seats, it's time we take personal responsibility (like we promote on a regular basis) and take some responsibility in making the LP the best it can be.
