I’m not overly excited about the 2012 presidential race, especially since the major choices at this point are three candidates who don’t seem to have much commitment to economic freedom and individual liberty.
So when someone sent me this cartoon, I immediately decided it had to be my next blog post.
Too bad we can’t turn the clock back 11 years. I’m not joking when I say I would gladly go back to Bill Clinton. No, he wasn’t a libertarian, but economic freedom increased during his tenure. And I care about results.
Clinton’s track record on spending was especially good. Indeed, I even admitted on TV that I would accept Clinton-era tax rates if we could unravel all the new spending and intervention of the Bush-Obama years.
