    How do you think you have derived categorical non-interventionism (in foreign policy) from the non-initiation of force principle?

  2. Jose C

    If you were President at this time how would you respond to the China Corona Virus Pandemic?

  3. Richard Winger

    What is your opinion about how the Libertarian Party should nominate a presidential candidate this year? By in-person convention or some other way?

  4. NewFederalist

    What is your strategy to maximize vote totals while at the same time building up the Libertarian Party in terms of supporters, members and financial contributors?

  5. Fernando Mercado

    What are your thoughts on the Libertarian Socialist Caucus of the Libertarian Party, would you be open to letting them have positions in a hypothetical Hornberger Administration?

  6. Tony From Long Island

    Jose C ” . . . . . .how would you respond to the China Corona Virus Pandemic . . . . ”

    You made a point of campaigning for the primary in North Carolina. The results would not seem to indicate that what you did had a measurable impact on the vote. How do you evaluate your efforts there and if you feel like what you did was beneficial how are you measuring that benefit?

    While the concepts of public property, public goods, and nations exist, is it wise for a nation to allow for the unhindered use and exploitation of its limited public property and public goods by those who are not a part of that nation? Is it moral for a nation to allow and encourage the unhindered use and exploitation of limited public property and public goods without the complete consent of the nation’s members?

    Thank you to everyone who asked a question. I count ten questions above. I will now forward these questions to the Hornberger campaign. Please post any additional questions below, however, bear in mind, I cannot guarantee additional questions will be answered before the interview is posted.

    Have you ever given any thought to running for a local office where your chances of winning might be greater? Or do your only runs for Senate and President indicate you prefer the strategy of running up-top in order to “make a statement”?

    Jose C ” . . . . . .how would you respond to the China Corona Virus Pandemic . . . . ”

    Really? Racist Trump garbage on IPR? I’m shocked I tell ya . . . .shocked!!

    The Corona Virus, Spanish Flu, German Measles, SARS, West Nile Virus, . . . All named after a place yet when it comes to China (The Peoples Republic of China) we can not call this disease after China? What am I missing?

    There is an editorial in National Review Online that says China (Communist China) should be held morally accountable for their crimes as it relates to this pandemic and the suffering caused all over the world because of the crimes Communist China has and is committing. Read the editorial and you will know I am right and not the WHO (World Health Organization) and their politically correct naming of this disease because they do not want Communist China to get upset.

    Jose C… don’t worry about Tony From Long Island . He is a true fuck wad!

    “The Corona Virus, Spanish Flu, German Measles, SARS, West Nile Virus, . . . All named after a place yet when it comes to China (The Peoples Republic of China) we can not call this disease after China? What am I missing?”

    Mostly, you’re missing facts. Here are a couple:

    Rubella was popularly known as “German Measles” only because the doctors who originally suggested it be considered a separate condition from measles were all German. Germany had nothing to do with Rubella. Today, “German Measles” is an out-dated term, and most in the medical professional refer to it as Rubella (hence the immunization known as MMR).

    The only reason the 1918 flu outbreak was called Spanish Flu is that wartime reporting restrictions kept news of the flu in belligerent nations from being reported, while news of the flu in neutral Spain was freely reported, making people think Spain had something to do with it.

    PS: SARS is not a place. It’s “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome”.

    Correct. My understanding is that the mutated virus second wave originated in the United States and infected the rest of the world w/ the troop deployments to the European fronts.

  15. Tony From Long Island

    Some guy named Jose: ” . . . . .The Corona Virus, Spanish Flu, German Measles, SARS, . . . . All named after a place . . . .”

    1) Corona is not a place (unless you are on the Sun)
    2) Spanish flu originated in the U.S. and was called that specifically to insult people
    3) No one calls it German Measles anymore precisely because we don’t purposely insult people (Rubella)
    4) SARS? Really? Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome?? C’mon man . . . Try a little harder next time.

    Why do some people PURPOSELY want to insult groups of people unnecessarily? What GOOD does it serve? What happened to decency?

    I’m actually someone who tries not to yell “That’s Racist!!” at every little thing. However, there is no logical reason to not just call this Covid-19 or Corona Virus. Any other name is being used Specifically to insult people or be rude. Any other explanation is simply disingenuous.

    p.s. Thank you Robert Hansen for bringing common sense (and facts) to the conversation

    “Thank you Robert Hansen for bringing common sense (and facts) to the conversation”

    Gol-shux. I wasn’t sure how much effort I wanted to make in trying to bring facts to someone who thought SARS was a place, although if one was a pilot and made many trips to the airfield outside of Sparta, Illinois, one could say they’ve flown lots of SARs.

    I see the Seebeck question was removed. Was it determined to be an imposter?

    Yes. Although the email list is better for questions of that nature.
