Bill Wirtz quoted on the rise of Marion Le Pen in U.S. politics – FRANCE 24

That’s where I am very worried –for the future condition.”

Panels were presented incorporating libertarian ideas, such as the Privacy versus Security debate with Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Red Pill or The Blue Pill? A Debate on Marijuana Legalization with Governor Gary Johnson.
