Ep 272 | Democracy Ain’t What It Used to Be | Guest: Glenn Jacobs

At New Hampshire’s Liberty Forum, Matt Kibbe talks to Glenn Jacobs, Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, about a wide variety of liberty issues, from the dishonesty of lockdowns and the unsustainability of the national debt, to the way in which the invocation of ‘democracy’ has become a code word for the raw accumulation of political power. Jacobs explains what it’s like to try to govern from a principled position, and how his efforts to do so got him demonized as a ‘grandma killer’.
