What is your name?
Craig Artzner
How do you describe yourself ideologically?
Conservative Libertarian. I grew up more or less in a Republican family, and solidified those views as I got older, up until my early 30s. My political story is very much like Tom Wood’s, I became a neocon when I was in college, but as I got older I became disillusioned with the Republican “establishment”. I had heard of libertarians and Ron Paul before, but it took awhile to come around to that way of thinking. I was against gay marriage and thought the drug war needed to be fought, LOL.
How did you first hear about Tom Woods?
I saw him on the John Stossel show talking about unions. From there I went to YouTube looking for any speeches and seminars available to listen to. I think I may have seen them all.
Facebook and Twitter profiles?
On Facebook under my name. Probably should be on Twitter, but haven’t joined yet.
Other Fun facts about you?
My family is a polarizing mix of relatively extreme political ideologies. My mother’s side is conservative neocon I guess I would say, and my father’s side is liberal democrat statist (although they claim not to be statist). I’m also a car guy. I have a 1973 Chevy Blazer, it’s a full convertible (think Chief Brody’s truck in the movie “Jaws”), and I also have a lifted golf cart for off-roading.
Courses your looking forward too?
Anything really. Don’t have one in particular I can single out.
