Description

Matt Kibbe sits down with Troy Lanigan, president of Canada’s Manning Center, to talk about what Canadian health care is really like. At a time when everyone in America is talking about Medicare for All, it’s important to puncture the misconceptions about socialized medicine in countries like Canada and point out how such systems would harm patients in the United States.

Meet the hosts

Matt Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. We reach the “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. Kibbe is also an Executive Producer at BlazeTV, where he produces the Kibbe on Liberty podcast as well as The Deadly Isms, a documentary series about the dangers of all flavors of authoritarianism. He is the Co-Founder and Partner at Fight the Power Productions, a strategic communications firm focused on video production, social media branding, and compelling storytelling. He is also a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Austrian Economics Center in Vienna. In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, where he served as President for 11 years. Steve Forbes said, “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.” Against his better judgment, Kibbe occasionally gets involved in politics, serving as Senior Advisor to a Rand Paul SuperPAC, and creating AlternativePAC to support liberty candidates. Back when Yoda was a teenager, Kibbe worked as Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, as Budget Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and at the Republican National Committee. Dubbed “The Scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is most recently author of the #2 New York Times bestseller, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. In his spare time he appears on Old Media, including FOX News, MSNBC, CNN and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. Most of his best material is lifted from his three liberty-minded cats, Roark, Ragnar, and Rearden.

  • I only just joined Liberty.me and in order to populate my friends list, I have sent friend requests to all my fellow Canadians in the group, The Canadians. I live in Abbotsford, BC and am particularly interested in contacting fellow British Columbians, maybe to get a discussion group started or organize social get togethers in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.

  • It’s the federal election year in Canada. What are your thoughts on the Libertarian Party of Canada’s platform? Too radical, just right, or not radical enough? https://www.libertarian.ca/platform/
