He is referring to this cable btw.
Very nicely put.
Always good to be reminded that not all US politicians are frightened of the truth. Well done that man. Did I read the on-screen text properly - this guy is a Republican?
Yes, he is a libertarian, i.e. a proponent of the free market, loyal to the constitution, maximal individual liberty and a no-intervention foreign policy.

Very well said! (though the whole movement is bat shit crazy)
