Gravel and Paul on PBS

PBS News Hour has interesting in-depth interviews with 'libertarian' U.S. Presidential Candidates who don't stand a chance of winning but should.

Libertarian in the sense they would put power back in the hands of the people.
And I would call Gravel a libertarian Democrat.

PBS gave them time to explain their ideas and present arguments for minimal government intervention in peoples lives something the debate forums do not do.
