RI Free Radio: How did you become a Libertarian?
Mr. Perry: I wrote about this in my book A Rebel's Journey: My Path to Liberty. I first learned about libertarianism from Neal Boortz in 1999 when he was talking about the Fair Tax. I somehow found the World's Smallest Political Quiz, scored a 70/100 (on the border between conservative/libertarian), and first joined the Libertarian Party. I've been a Life Member of the LP since 2008.
RI Free Radio: Are there any Libertarian principles you are particularly interested in?
Mr. Perry: Equality of rights. Specifically that no person has more rights than anyone else, and can not delegate a right they don't have.
RI Free Radio: Do you have plans to grow and/or improve the Libertarian Party?
Mr. Perry: We improve the Libertarian Party by consistently promoting libertarian principles, not watered-down half measures disguised as libertarian principles.
RI Free Radio: Are there any "pet" issues that you are particularly interested in?
Mr. Perry: My "pet issue" is reforming election laws, specifically ballot access laws to allow for equal treatment of candidates and voters.
RI Free Radio: What can be done to improve the current economic situation?
Mr. Perry: Abolish coercive taxes, which would allow people to keep more of their money to spend on goods and services that will improve rather than destroy their communities.
RI Free Radio: What is your thoughts on monetary policy? Should be Fed be abolished?
Mr. Perry: The legal tender laws need to be repealed to allow the creation of competing complementary free market currencies. Absolutely, and should be done along with repealing legal tender laws.
