Barry Farber Calls for Electing ‘Solutionists’

In a tongue-in-cheek commentary, one of the earliest talk radio legends slammed ideological politics and called for electing “solutionists.”

From WND:

After that magic moment, I changed my “registration” from “right-winger.” I’m now a “solutionist.” We did more, accomplished more and hated each other less when the nation cared less about who’s left and who’s right than about how to dig a Panama Canal after the French had failed. Some problems have difficult, or maybe no, solutions at all. But others are finger-snappingly simple, effective and eminently do-able!

Farber was a pioneer in conservative talk radio, was a mayoral candidate in New York and debated the Soviets in the 1980s.
