End the Unconstitutional Federal Involvement in Education
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.
Bob examined federal involvement in education policy and interviewed Andrew Coulson from the Cato Institute about the need for any federal involvement in education. Parents and teachers should control education, not civil servants who are thousands of miles away.
