Drew Carey on Politics

Old, but good (original here).

Price Is Right’s Drew Carey Shows His Libertarian Colors

Tuesday, October 16, 2007 2:55 PM

Comedian Drew Carey, who debuted Monday as the host of “The Price Is Right,” is showing his libertarian colors by participating in a series of videos for the Reason Foundation’s new Web site Reason.tv.

The short videos will focus on the libertarian think tank’s belief in what it calls “free minds and free markets.”

Carey said in a statement issued by Reason: “We need Reason to help fight the stupid drug laws, the stupid immigration laws, and stupid big government in general.”

In his first video, Carey examines traffic congestion in Los Angeles and the ways the private sector – rather than taxpayers – can solve the problem.

Ten years ago, according to NewsBusters.org, Carey told Reason magazine about government: “The less the better. As far as your personal goals are and what you actually want to do with your life, it should never have to do with the government. You should never depend on the government for your retirement, your financial security, for anything. If you do, you’re screwed.”

Carey has been politically active over the years. He performed at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2002, and the ex-Marine entertained troops in Iraq in 2003.

He’s been a financial backer of Republican Sen. George Voinovich of Ohio, Reuters reported, and in 1998 led a “smoke-in” in defiance of a no-smoking ordinance.

More recently, he has expressed his distaste for the Bush administration’s handling of the Iraq war.

Quotes:

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
