Sassy Libertarian Interview

Do you want to meet a super cool libertarian?

Then the Sassy Libertarian is your girl.

Whether it’s the soccer World Cup (something I know nothing about), hilarious Salon article headlines, or the awesomeness of the Free Market, Tamara’s got you covered.

She’s highlighted young libertarians, people’s dogs, and anyone who has a blog.

To put it simply, Tamara knows how to use social media.

She also knows how to communicate the principles of the Free Market and individual liberty. Which is something we need more of.

For now, take a look at what she’s got to say…

Here’s Some Questions With Tamara (aka The Sassy Libertarian)

Who are you? And what are you known for?

My name’s Tamara, but I guess I’m “known” for being an overly-sassy pundit (in my own head only) on twitter.

How old were you when got into politics?

Honestly, I can’t remember. My obsession has been lifelong.

What attracted you to politics?

I really liked Wolf Blitzer’s beard, so I used to watch him a lot. That’s really it.  I also used to watch John Stossel way back when, before he joined the Fox Business Network. He had a lot to do with my attraction to politics, and specifically to libertarianism.

Was there any person (family member, friend, mentor) who helped you get into politics?

My whole family follows politics pretty actively, but my interest in it has always been there.

What was your process for becoming politically informed (did you read a lot of books, etc)?

My dad used to make me read sections of the New York Times when I was little, so that’s where I started.

After a while, I wanted more. I started reading Time, The Economist, and Foreign Policy, among others.

In high school I joined the debate team and it became impossible to do well without reading a ton so I studied read/ingested everything I could, from books to articles, to news segments.

Did any of your friends or family give you a hard time for taking an interest in politics?

Not really, thankfully :)

Did you find it unusually difficult to educate yourself about political issues, principles, and the like?

Not so much anymore. I think the hardest part is knowing where to look and not being taken in by every new controversy the media jumps on.

What did you dislike the most about it all?

Statists. Statists everywhere.

If you could’ve have done something different what would it have been?

Wouldn’t have followed so many neocons when I first started tweeting. That was a bad move.
