Episode 36 of Boss Hog of Liberty is proof that people who don’t agree on everything makes a good program.
Jeremiah Morrell and Dakota Davis are joined this week by the leader of all libertarians, Chris Spangle founder, editor, and dear leader of the We Are Libertarians Network.
Our featured guest is Lane Siekman, Democrat candidate for US Congress in the 6th District in Indiana. Lane is from Rising Sun, Indiana, a town of 2,000 people, in the smallest county in the state. Ohio County only has 6,000 residents.
Lane works as an attorney, economic development official, professor at Ivy Tech, and we are pretty sure if asked, he would drive a snow plow or sweep a town street.
We have in depth discussions about the future of the 6th district, what it is like to run for office in a rural community. Topics include Healthcare, Taxes, Opioids, Energy Policy, and much more.
