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.
Episode details

Last Sunday, Nick Gillespie was Bob’s special guest. He is the Editor-In-Chief of Reason.tv and Reason.com. Reason’s tagline is “Free Minds and Free Markets.” Nothing says it better. Bob and Nick discussed the evils of government subsidized art (indeed, the evils of government subsidized anything) and Nick’s new book “The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What’s Wrong with America” which will be published on June 28. They also put the Republican Presidential candidates through a Libertarian filter to see who makes it through. Nick is a frequent television guest of John Stossel and Judge Napolitano.
