Justin Amash: The Libertarian Party Needs To Stop 'Edge-Lording' and Get Serious About Elections

The Reason Interview With Nick Gillespie

Can the Libertarian Party (L.P.) become "a major contender that consistently wins elections?"If the organization's dismal, 50-year track record in winning elections isn't discouraging enough, now the L.P. is in disarray after its chairman and two members of its national committee resigned in the wake of an attempt to decertify the New Hampshire affiliate due to conflicts over its social media presence. This episode has revealed an organization at war with itself over vision, tactics, and messaging.To get a better sense of what's going on, Nick Gillespie spoke with former Rep. Justin Amash (L–Mich.), who finished his five terms in office as the first and only Libertarian to hold national office. He had been elected as a Republican, became an Independent, and affiliated with the L.P. for the last few months of his tenure. Amash flirted with a run for the L.P.'s presidential nomination in 2020 before choosing to drop out of consideration. Despite not holding an official position in the party's leadership, he is its best-known member.In the wake of the recent scandal, he chastised the New Hampshire affiliate for its "horrible messaging" even as he said attempts to remove its leadership were illegitimate. "I'm committed to making [the L.P.] a major contender that consistently wins elections," he wrote. "We must work together to build a big-tent party that can take on the old parties and defend the rights of the people."

E134. Justin Amash Says There Are Basically 3 People Running Our Federal Government

Walk-Ins Welcome with Bridget Phetasy

Former US Congressman, Justin Amash, gives us an inside look on the inner workings of Congress and the fact that people in Washington aren't actively trying to harm people, it's just that they mostly don't care. He and Bridget discuss the difficulty of having a free society when everyone's angry and hostile with each other, why the use of the word "defend" is problematic, the importance of focusing on process in government, why fixing the process is only going to happen from external pressure because all internal attempts to effect change have failed or fallen apart, why most politicians have no interest in upending the system so they just follow the leader, and why the Speaker of the House basically operates like a dictator. They cover term limits, decentralization, Libertarianism, how each side of the aisle has used their power in a dictatorial fashion, how media outlets continue to fail us, the credibility crisis in America, the insanity of spending bill votes, why government functionality depends on independent media, and why Washington is basically Hollywood for ugly people.

Speak Now Episode Four: Crashing the Party with Justin Amash

Speak Now

[ Live Date: 04/09/21 ]The 2020 election and ensuing Capitol riots exposed the real and violent danger of partisan divides. But these fractures are not new. Many youth have only ever experienced an America splintered by ideological polarization, rifts that corrode our ability to listen to, and understand, voices different than our own. Such division threatens not only democracy and political stability, but also our ability to help those in this country who need it most. Speak Now, a four-part speaker series from the Cornell Advocacy Project, addresses this divide, exploring the role of empathy in rehabilitating hostile spaces. With the advice of an experienced advocate, each webinar equips attendees with rhetorical techniques and productive strategies for engaging in political discourse, advocacy, and activism in an increasingly polarized age.Crashing the Party, the fourth episode in this series, will feature former US Representative Justin Amash, who became the only Libertarian member of Congress in 2019 after a highly publicized split with the Republican party. Amash will discuss when and how to be an effective advocate in the face of intense partisan backlash.

Ep. 444 — Justin Amash

The Axe Files with David Axelrod

Growing up as the son of a Palestinian refugee and a Syrian immigrant, former Rep. Justin Amash developed an early appreciation for the opportunities and freedoms America offered. His views on what power the government should have in limiting those freedoms crystalized after a Google search led him to libertarian thinkers and texts. As a Republican member of Congress following those libertarian principles, Amash sometimes found himself at odds with party leadership and eventually with President Trump. He joined David to talk about the value of immigrants of all backgrounds, how he believes US Congress operates as more of an oligarchy than a democracy, what he respects about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and why he’s unsettled by what he sees as the media’s lionization of Rep. Liz Cheney.To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

While Trump Clings to Power, Justin Amash Has Left the Building

The Reason Roundtable

While the Internet was exploding Sunday over the leak of President Donald Trump's shameful, lawyer-laden phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Ben Raffensberger, a more orderly yet still significant transfer of power was taking place: Iraq vet and supermarket heir Peter Meijer (R–Mich.) was sworn into office, replacing five-term Republican-turned-independent-turned-Libertarian Justin Amash.Amash, no stranger to Reason's pages and pixels, was perhaps the most incisive internal critic of congressional process, the biggest exemplar of vote-explaining transparency, and of course a big fat libertarian (metaphorically speaking), who went out the door introducing all kinds of libertarian-wishlist bills. So concludeth Peter Suderman, Matt Welch, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Nick Gillespie on today's Reason Roundtable podcast.The gang also squabbles over the import of the Trumpian election shenanigans, weighs in on the character vs. ideology debate, and responds to our first-ever non-Webathon listener mail.
