The Heartland Institute Safeguards Your Individual Freedoms (Guest: H. Sterling Burnett)

June 8, 2021

The Founding Fathers set up a government to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That’s all but gone today.

If alive today, they would balk at what our government has become. Rampant government intervention seen today skews markets and limits the freedom of the individual.

H. Sterling Burnett joins the Great Talks With podcast to describe how The Heartland Institute discovers, develops, and promotes free-market solutions to social and economic problems; fighting back against big government.
