One thing you've got to like about Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr. He answers questions thoughtfully and forthrightly.
Barr, a guest on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com, gave a tip of his political hat to Ron Paul, whose candidacy as a Republican for president of the United States paved the way, he said, for his own as a Libertarian.
Barr is anticipating that many Paul supporters will now join him in his quest for the White House.
Barr is a strong advocate for individual rights and privacy. So he expressed support for the Supreme Court decision granting detainees at Guantanamo Bay the right to be tried in a civilian court of law in the United States. His only regret: that the decision wasn't unanimous.
He also, among other things, explained his change of heart over the so-called war on drugs (he was for it, now against it); explained on his views about talking with Tehran and outlined his vision for withdrawal from Iraq.
