Bob Zadek
Bob talks about the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis from a purely libertarian standpoint. He believes in small government, fewer taxes, and greater personal freedom.<br /><br />America has lost its way, but it cannot and does not need to be reinvented. Our founders were correct about their approach to government, as were John Locke, Adam Smith and the other great political philosophers who influenced them. The country’s first principles are economic and social freedom, republicanism, the rule of law, and liberty. Bob believes we must take the best of our founding principles and work from them because a country without principles is just a landmass.

She joined me or part II of my series on the National Constitution Center's brilliant experiment, soliciting three revisions to the Constitution: one libertarian, one conservative and one progressive.

Can you guess which team Caroline will be representing?

Find out what "Team Progressive" prioritized in their rewriting of our founding document, and how the balance of power would shift among the branches of government.

If you missed my show with Timothy Sandefur, you can listen to the podcast or read the transcript to get up to speed on the libertarian perspective. I've decided to interview a representative from each team, and am delighted to welcome Caroline to the show of ideas.
