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

When Gary Johnson first started competing in the Republican Presidential primary battle, Bob knew he was a candidate he could support based on his qualifications and beliefs; not because of his party affiliation. At last, there was a candidate who would not disappoint; one whose principles were clear. Most importantly, he had no political baggage and was electable. What Bob did not consider was the cynicism of the Republican Party and their manipulation of the rules so as to exclude Governor Johnson from most debates and the power of mainstream media (particularly Fox News) to deny him coverage. Governor Johnson strategically redefined his candidacy for the Presidential nomination by running as a Libertarian and Bob is delighted to welcome him back to the show to discuss this important decision. Governor Johnson discusses third party politics and he discuss the likely differences between the Democratic and Republican platforms vs. the Libertarian platform. Current events in Afghanistan and Iraq are proving that he is right on foreign policy and the other parties are dead wrong. What are the other differences?
