Drew Carey - The Advocates for Self-Government
Includes picture, biographical essay and quote
Here’s what TV sitcom star Drew Carey doesn't like: censorship, anti-smoking laws, drug laws, immigration laws, "stupid big government in general" — and award shows. ... Here’s what Drew Carey does like: freedom, competition, free minds, free markets, and — he won't deny — beer, dirty jokes, and gambling. Those likes and dislikes tell you pretty much everything you need to know about Carey. He's not afraid to speak his mind. He's proud of his blue-collar sensibilities. And he's a libertarian. Carey left no doubts about his political philosophy in a November 1997 interview with Reason magazine.

Stand-Up Guy: Comedian Drew Carey on network censors, Hollywood guilt, and why he likes eating at Bob's Big Boy, by Nick Gillespie, Drew Carey, Steve Kurtz, Reason, Nov 1997
Topics range from Hollywood reactions to Carey's humor, his attitude toward government, the ABC network censor, Las Vegas, drug legalization and more
Reason: Much of your humor pokes fun at liberal Hollywood sensibilities. What kind of response does that provoke from your peers?
Drew Carey: People look at me like a drunk uncle ... Everybody in Hollywood loves symbolic gestures. Have you been to the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas? There's nothing save-the-planetish about it. Hollywood people are filled with guilt: white guilt, liberal guilt, money guilt. They feel bad that they're so rich, they feel they don't work that much for all that money–and they don't, for the amount of money they make. There's no way I can justify my salary level, but I'm learning to live with it.
