The free market has worked for elective and cosmetic surgery. Of course those are the areas where government price distortions haven't taken complete hold.
He also wants to get rid of every single safety net for the poor or unlucky, cut almost all sources of national revenue, which means we'll have to cut pretty much everything regarding national management, law enforcement, research, defense and maintenance and development of infrastructure. He wants to cancel all of the regulations that are supposed to protect us from things like mining disasters, oil spills and corporate mismanagement that affects the national economy.
Perhaps he has the communist view of such things which appears to be, when everyone is poor, no one need a safety net.
Yes, I would say nutcase considering the above. For a non-nutcase that wants financial responsibility AS WELL as government protection of her people, look at Dennis Kucinich.
I'd probably just look over Kucinich. There isn't much to see there and you should start reading about the sovereign debt crisis if you want to see how well all these programs are doing around the world. Everyone and everything can look good until the credit runs out.

I think he's also the guy who expects corporations to take over the duties of enforcing environmental protections.
I'm pretty sure he's the guy who'd like it if the United States was more like Nigeria than Denmark.
I've been to both, and Denmark's much, much
He is a nutcase, by the way. Total nutter.
You know you seem to constantly be comparing a Africa to several Northern European nations. You appear to have this desire to constantly berate nations that are majority black. Why are you so racist?
Also as for Africa, they've received and continue to request government assistance and monies of all manner from the U.S. and Europe. They aren't laisse faire. They are more like communist with really bad forms of enforcing and dispersing the spoils from the government offices.Over a trillion dollars in aid has been given to Africa.
Just like every other war on poverty, including the one in the United States, and those throughout Europe, the poor never go away. They only become entrenched, helpless and the results become worse than if nothing had been done.
