January 16, 2013 -- "Fight to be free." These are the words of Republican Senator and businessman Ron Johnson, and he is so committed to the fight, he had the words inscribed at the foot of a giant Atlas statue in his hometown of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Johnson recently sat down with Laurie Rice  of The Atlas Society to discuss the ideas of Atlas Shrugged , his experience running a successful manufacturing company, the goals of his political career, and the future of the American economy and culture.
