The Age of Unenlightment
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.
In this encore episode, Bob warns you about 2012. That’s the year that Congress has ordered us to stop using incandescent light bulbs. All our homes will look like the inside of a DMV office. Even the freedom to have light is being denied us. And this in the name of environmentalism? After taking away light, what will be next? Listen and find out.
