Schweikert: Will free-market Republicans “be ready to do battle?”
Arizona Representative David Schweikert was recently kicked off the Financial Services Committee—a move that horrified many conservatives who see Schweikert as an ally and a free-market, liberty-based, limited-government stalwart. In this interview, Schweikert is circumspect and respectful regarding his removal, but he minces no words about what is wrong with the Republican Party.
Ardently devoted to the cause of human freedom, he has worked at the confluence of politics, activism, and public policy for more than a decade. He co-wrote a ten-part series of video shorts on economics, and has film credits as a researcher on 11 political documentaries, including Citizens United's notorious film on Hillary Clinton that became the subject of a landmark Supreme Court decision. He is the founder of several activist endeavors, including AnyStreet.org (now a part of Western Free Press) and Liberatchik.com. He is currently the managing editor of and principal contributor to WesternFreePress.com.
