Sixteen minutes after the top of the hour now each of the -- For smaller government in last night's GOP debate but which candidate.
Has the best vision.
Well let's ask the -- remarkable man he's -- nationally syndicated talk show radio host and author of the new book America -- via the un making of America marked his first of all it's just keep your thoughts on the debate last night would you see what we looking for -- to finally did you see when you wanted.
Well all -- know is that nothing really changed.
-- -- good debater -- times are good debater Romney's negative Nader.
And Ron Paul wants to -- unilaterally disarm so I think I've got all the positions sound pretty well I if I voted today I'd be voting for same -- as I think he's the most consistent conservative.
He's a man of enormous character.
All this tax return released stuff that their fan and I could care less than one Obama releases his -- college and law school records and maybe we Ronnie can release his tax.
Glad you feel about the opening question effort there actually did -- -- -- and he said look why you attacking being capital is embedded anti Republican thing to do.
What do you think -- is actually doing the best thing possible for a would be Republican nominee I think it's new.
Talking offline honestly about -- he think it backfired.
We don't have enough capitalism in this country we don't know enough free market activity in this country and win.
He was a great speaker of the house is out there -- like Obama we conservatives are gonna rejected the matter who's talking about it but -- said.
I wouldn't exactly say Mitt Romney's mr.
capitalist he supported TARP which was the biggest bailout in American history of business.
That's got to stop too so TARP.
Subsidizing GM and Chrysler.
Attacking Bain Capital you know whats killing this country the government's killing this country not being capital and not the private sector.
And that's something of someone you're focusing your new book America -- -- now on its face when you see that title.
You think -- tell you that sounds pretty -- it would be like utopia.
He wouldn't be like tapioca yeah.
-- -- -- by the way and I -- reading a book about liberals go to Mary dopey but not enough I think America but who can.
My my premise in this book is that there is this force what is this that underlines stages.
That tries millions of people to it it attracts millions of people.
The -- so what does this week we talk superficially about big government -- but what is this force that does.
And what it is is this is this.
Fantasy driven top down authoritarian as -- where people even today and people thousands of years ago used to argue about.
You know how everybody's going to be equal not everybody is not going to be cool when let me taste -- America there's never have been equal incomes and there's never going to be equally -- -- I got to ask you listen I'm and avid listener you may want to know this last night Newt Gingrich started out in the bank capital issue he looked okay -- them.
Once you move towards the -- Obama's policies are working.
That's where he really thrives -- has a conservative.
You know we were who were dying to have in this country we talk about Ronald Reagan we don't have to have Ronald rang at what we want is an articulate -- consistent.
Relatively charismatic conservative.
You'd wipe up the Republican primary -- wipe out the election.
Obama is low hanging fruit his record is a disaster has philosophy is a disaster.
The American people you look at the polls they are not -- this guy they're not -- this policy event but then how do you argue against the people who say well.
It has to be Mitt Romney because he'll get the independent vote she's the only one who's electable.
-- they keep saying this and I'm looking at the returns in these in these are states did he have a massive victory in Iowa I mean 68 votes.
To -- a massive victory in New Hampshire he's basically some New Hampshire now.
-- having trouble in South Carolina yes he better lock up the base beef which -- so called independents and imitates something -- independence.
Our conservative Tea Party activists say you know what this book is excellent you talk about that it was -- hundreds really -- -- Toby and you and they're bright -- and you still believe that I got it.
And it's a deep thinking -- if I read this book -- -- suddenly feel Smart for as long as accurate well there's no pictures that's just for.
Well I'll maybe that's not good for Brian -- -- you on the radio good look at your book tour and this looks fence that lets you pentagon buddy -- -- and thank you very.
