Newsmax reports that 2008 Libertarian Party vice-presidential nominee Wayne Root is launching a libertarian radio show on June 6. The show will debut on stations in “the three largest markets, New York (WNYM), Los Angeles (KABC) and Chicago (WIND).” Article excerpt:
The GOP mainstream today, Root asserts, is fiscally conservative and socially conservative, while Root and libertarians are fiscally conservative but socially tolerant, resisting “the intrusion of Big Brother.”
Excerpts from Root blog commentary yesterday on home-schooling:
The freedom to live the American Dream is all about getting a good education. And getting a good education is all about parents having the freedom (and tax dollars) to choose the best education for their children. Once again, the Libertarian solution is freedom, choice and competition. […]
To be blunt, the federal government has no right to be in the education business- education is never mentioned in the Constitution. […]
The solution to the educational crisis must be increasing parental freedom; expanding educational choices; moving education spending to the state level; offering parents school vouchers; firing poorly performing teachers; and encouraging competition to the current public school system.
