Baker's Libertarian-Leaning Ethos

STARK'S CHALLENGER SAYS NATION'S PROBLEMS ROOTED IN STIFLED CAPITALISM
Forest Baker, the Republican challenger to Rep. Pete Stark's congressional seat appeared on The Bob Zadek Show last Sunday saying the federal government is standing in the way of capitalism and favors banking and business interests.

I'm a grizzled old capitalist. I've been doing this for 40 years. The problems in the nation today are fundamentally economic and against our practice of capitalism. As a libertarian or as a very hard libertarian-leaning conservative Republican, it's clear to me that the government is intruding into the practice of capitalism with their own agenda, especially the supply-side agenda, which consolidates power into the corporations and banks and denies access to the practice of capitalism.
Zadek is a libertarian radio host for 910 KNEW, the Fox News Radio affiliate in San Francisco. Baker is running against Stark in the 13th congressional district.

Listen to Baker on The Bob Zadek Show, here, starting at the 12:30 mark.

This is the message of Forrest Baker, "We must take from the right nationalism without capitalism and from the left socialism without internationalism." Mel
