Joe the Plumber is a Capitalist?

As everyone knows the now famous “Joe the Plumber” has been getting media attention for his question to Senator Obama on his tax plan. As I completely agree with Joe and believe that redistribution of wealth is bad, it seems Joe may be a full blooded Capitalist.

At first I thought he was when he was not licensed and owed back taxes. First, licenses grant monopolies. They protect industries so that a mom and pop place cannot come up out of no where. This is the same for doctors, lawyers, and even hair-cutters. At this point, I feel very proud of Joe, he appeared on Laura Ingram’s Radio Show.

On this show he mentioned he was thinking about running for Congress. When he was telling why here was his response:

Wurzelbacher said he did agree with (Current Congressman) Kaptur’s vote against the bailout, and touted his support for a flat tax on income.”

Joe, I agree with you. I want a flat tax and limited government.

The rest of the interview is here.
