President Trump, Brock Pierce, Minnesota discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
So Brock is back with us here and you you said you're in Minnesota tonight on a campaign stop to turn in petitions and that sort of thing how many ballots of the fifteen states you're focusing on? Are you already qualified on? All. were. Those are basically in the bag. They're not it it'll be over the next month or so you watch by the way I'm not just in Minnesota I'm in Minneapolis and I am one block away from the George. Floyd Memorial. Tournament I'm about to walk through what was the autonomous zone I'm not sure it's still in a zone. Anything on fires. Now that I can see because I'm still on the I'm making I wanNA make sure that I give you all my time and attention and I wanna make sure to also amp guys up I, may a fan of the work that you do you run a run a wonderful wonderful show. Shot. I love what you do. Come back to the to the thing. But I we don't have to talk about free talk live anymore I appreciate that Let's let's talk about Let's talk about your what you're saying about drug criminals specifically cannabis you said, you were behind maps in the multi multi disciplinary. Association for Psychedelic Studies I. Think that's what it stands for. They do great work. So I totally agree with you. There does that mean that Brock Pierce if you were elected as president would within the first week or so signed pardons for all victimless criminals who are nonviolent in federal prison. I can't commit to that yet but that's the conversation that would you matt? For Russ Albrecht. That's an interesting one not first in the list we'd start with maybe Edward Snowden and work our way through. The list how long does? Signed. Not Long, and so what I would encourage everyone listening that cares, right. These. This these conversations are on the table, right? If anyone was ever going to do it. It's more likely this crew than any other crew that you've got listed right now. Because I I I'm not personally a believer in the the war on drugs I don't believe that drugs are a criminal justice issue I believe it's a a mental health and social issue and how do we assist people I also don't believe all things. We call drugs are drugs, I think some of those things are proving to be medicines and I think some of the things we call medicines are looking more like drugs are we have an opioid epidemic in this country? I certainly don't think spending sixty, eighty, sixty, eighty, thousand dollars a year. throwing. People into jail or prison for something that is not harming others is the right answer. If you take a look at countries like Portugal look at the work being done in Switzerland, we now have pretty I think we've got real statistics. We've got real data empirical data and it's going back more than two decades. And I think that this needs Dan but I'd like to invite all of you. To participate in this conversation starting next week. that. Some of the topics that we just mentioned are going to be live and I invite you to participate in the conversation to figure out what matters to you unlike any other presidential candidates you've had. We are literally giving you a voice. We believe your voice matters, your voice counts and we are putting forth our policy positions into a collaborative platform where you can comment at it debate etc, and so. I. Think about each of these you're singing the tune that I definitely want to hear. But I'm not hearing any commitment from us like you know you are in favor of how can you have an open source collaborative discussion about the issues when you just come mean this is what I think could change your mind. Well, okay fine. It's good to have principles and positions. WanNa have a possessing but I gave but I gave you my my positions I've said this. Think right I go. I think it's causing more harm. Well, I'm saying, let's have this conversation right? You this is what I think. This is what does your job? He's a have a conversation. Well, it has not. Hold on hold on it should be the idea that that we we believe that the president has the answer to everything. I. Think what really is what matters most is, what is the to getting to the right answer I believe in? Transparency Right I believe in okay. I don't know the answer to this question but let me show you how I get to the answer. Let me show you who the people are that I consult. Are they lobbyists or are they people that you've heard of and you have faith and confidence in? We're holding public town halls. We had one today we're having another one, a national town hall, every Wednesday going forward, virtual town halls, which you can find the websites and then many town halls on each of these subjects. There will be a mini townhall specifically talking about how do we end the war on drugs bringing in experts like Rick Dobelin, these conversations are going to be had leading up to the election because we want you to be. Part of the process, your voice is heard here and I hope that people are able to be brought on board with these ideas if somebody like Rick Rick Tomlin President presenting these ideas than Shirley he's going to be persuasive. Surely, he's going to persuade many people in that audience that drugs need to be given another look and they need to be decriminalized and legalized, and the war on drugs needs to end I. Don't doubt that that is. Something, that would come out of those conversations I. Guess my question is Brock after how many conversations would you need to have before you would be able to make up your mind and say, yes I, as president will a pardon Ross Ulbricht to for our listeners who don't know is the man who created and operated for some amount of time the Silk Road, which was the first the world's first underground drug and free market place on the Internet. And he's now in a to life sentence plus forty year prison sentence that will never end unless the president pardons him or commutes his sentence I mean at what point would you be able to make up your.
