I just got off the phone with Libertarian Presidential candidate Austin Petersen. I am trying to be objective here, but I believe the criticism of Petersen by some Libertarians is unfounded. After talking to Petersen, I found out that he has been highly involved in the Libertarian Party trenches for over a decade.
This news is contrary to the sentiment projected by some, that Austin Petersen is new to Libertarian politics and has no tangible experience. In the days ahead, I plan to do some in depth video interviews with Petersen in order for the public out there to hear him in his own words on his own terms. The time has come for Austin Petersen to be heard. His incredible performance at the Fox Business Network Libertarian Forum aired last Friday has earned him that right.
Gary Johnson has a lot of weaknesses and Petersen clearly has been exposing them for all who care to see.
The time has come for Libertarians to give Austin Petersen a fair hearing, but are you willing to listen with an unbiased ear?
