“Last Man Standing” is one of the few shows on TV that promotes conservative values.
In a recent episode, Tim Allen’s character takes a swipe at far-left candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and touts capitalism.
Per MRC, in his vlog at the end of the show, Mike schools candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on capitalism, Sanders especially being known for his embrace of Democratic-Socialism:
Hey, Mike Baxter for Outdoor Man to talk about one of my favorite passions. No, no, no, not gutting a deer while listening to the Lovin’ Spoonful. I’m talking about capitalism. Now, old Bernie and young Elizabeth tell the folks capitalists are coldhearted, money-grubbing vultures. When you put it that way, you make it sound like a bad thing. But we’re also human beings with a conscience. Conscience. You remember those?
Mike goes on to offer a humorous but fitting defense of capitalism with a bit of conscience:
…I mean, sure, paying your workers with baseball cards and bubble gum would increase profits, but it’s wrong! Listen, a good boss should know how to make a buck and still be a human being. You see, capitalism, it’s just a recipe for economic success, and it doesn’t taste quite right until you sprinkle in a little morality. That’s why, here at Outdoor Man, we provide benefits for our part-timers, paid medical leave and all-you-can-eat chili at the Annual Meat Summit. Which sadly leads to a lot of paid medical leave. Happy employees make good employees, and that’s good business. Baxter out.
