Economic Freedom is Poverty’s Only Remedy
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.
Is poverty growing in America? What does “poverty” even mean? In this episode, Bob welcomes Hadley Heath of the Independent Women’s Forum to the show to discuss this contentious issue. As Hadley demonstrates, poverty is the product of the anti-poverty legislation of the non-so-Great Society programs. We’ve created a society of governmental dependency and the only way out is to reawaken self reliance and reliance on each other. There will always be citizens who have less than others. America’s goal should be to empower those who wish to move up the economic ladder; to get out of their way. Economic freedom – the cost is free and it’s the sure fire path out of poverty.
