This is so cool! I like biographies like this... Him, Goldwater, Nolan, and Peroutka are my political hero's.

Badnarik believes that the federal government has exceeded its Constitutional bounds and should be scaled back in favor of a laissez-faire capitalist society.


Laissez faire is short for "laissez faire, laissez passer," a French phrase meaning to "let things alone, let them pass". First used by the eighteenth century Physiocrats as an injunction against government interference with trade, it is now used as a synonym for strict free market economics. Adam Smith played a large role in popularizing laissez-faire economic theories in English-speaking countries.

The laissez-faire school of thought, or libertarianism, holds a pure capitalist or free market view, that capitalism is best left to its own devices that it will dispense with inefficiencies in a more deliberate and quick manner than any legislating body could. The basic idea is that less government interference makes for a better system.

The current corrupt US political system is a product of "laissez faire" where economic powers has grown stronger than elected leaders.
