Libertarian Author David Boaz: Left & Right Threaten Liberties

Tucker (Carlson) program (MSNBC) interviewed David Boaz author of the book:

The Politics of Freedom: Taking on the Left, the Right, and Threats to Our Liberties, (2008)

Watch the MSNBC video clip Left and right threaten liberties

Unfortunately, nothing was said about either Barack Obama or Mike Huckabee. Surely, one or two comments could have been highlighted about both of them. Only McCain and Clinton were mentioned. Boaz didn't even mention the name of Ron Paul during the segment. He generalized about what we all know. Both political parties cater to the public's demands no matter the constitutionality, or should we say, unconstitutionality of the action/s.

Boaz should have specified how all, or none, of the crop of presidential candidates have shown a willingness to veer from protection of our individual rights.

What does it say when a so-called Libertarian won't even mention the one Libertarian - though elected to Congress as a Republican - among the entire Congress of the United States, Ron Paul?
