LNC Chair: How to Balance Public Health and Civil Liberties in the Time of Coronavirus

Libertarian National Committee chair Nicholas Sarwark appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show on March 17, 2020, to discuss the coronavirus, and how to balance public health while protecting civil liberties.

“You don’t need to have draconian measures from the government if people are accurately informed about what is going on,” said Mr. Sarwark.

“We need to do what is necessary to keep people safe, but we also need to remember that we are Americans and we have made it through a lot of crises before, and our political system, our way of life, our Constitution can’t be let go just because there is a terrible illness spreading through the country.”
