Tapping into the Digital World: Rand Paul addresses the libertarian Reboot conference connecting with conservative millennials, entrepreneurs, and geeks. The Reboot conference is sponsored by the extremely successful Koch network partnering with Lincoln labs, a company that uses tech to the advantage of the libertarians and the right wing.
Rand has used social media such as Youtube and Snapchat to reach out to younger viewers before, but at the Reboot conference Rand was excited to meet young hackers and entrepreneurs who share his dissatisfaction with the NSA and big government.
“Whether the government likes it or not, there’s going to be a revolution,” Paul said during his talk. “One of the things that intrigues me about progress and all the stuff that comes from the Internet in this digital age is whether or not something is going to replace the government.”
Paul added some parting advice to the group:
“Don’t be depressed about how bad government is. Use your ingenuity, use your big head to think of solutions so the marketplace can figure what the idiots and trolls in Washington will never come up with.”
