Libertarian Response to State of the Union Speech

The president gave the 2015 State of the Union Speech last night. Iowa’s own junior senator, Joni Ernst, gave the Republican’s response. Congratulations to our fellow Iowan for being selected for that honor.

The Libertarian response was given by Arvin Vohra, vice chair of the national Libertarian Party Committee. A You Tube video and text of the speech can be found on Independent Political Report.

Arvin stated the theme of his response very clearly: “Mr. President, in your State of the Union address, you propose to make Big Government even bigger.” He went on to talk about Libertarian ideas for education, economic growth, surveillance, military operations, and healthcare.
