Description : Abstract
Carmen Fields reports that Richard Boddie (candidate for US President) is seeking the Libertarian nomination for US President. Fields interviews Boddie about the Libertarian Party and his position on the issues. Boddie says that there is no difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties. He talks about the need for government to remove itself from the private lives and economic lives of the citizenry. Boddie calls for reform of the criminal justice system. Boddie says that he will work to empower all people. He accuses other African American politicians of trying to redistribute wealth. Boddie says that the only legitimate function of government is to protect citizens from violations of their rights.
