Episode 82: Who, and What, are Boogaloo Bois
"So the Boogaloo movement I guess has really I was going to say become coherent but it's still fairly incoherent. It's still pretty scattered and you know, it's sort of hard to generalize about it, but it became I guess an identifiable cultural and political currents really in the last year or so. It has antioxidants it home. Places that it comes from which been around for a long time. So one big source of this this Boogaloo movement ideology is fortune and their weapons board and you should also drawn I think aspects of the nineties militia movement and there are alt-right white supremacists types in involved. Although we shouldn't conflate them. But really the way I characterize it is that it is I suppose an internet native extremist libertarian movement, you know, and a lot of the times at least retire. It's an insurrectionary libertarian movement and their biggest concern. The number one concern would be the Second Amendment. So, you know, we can talk in more detail about about what what's kind of brought this about and why it's emerged as it has but I mean the things that stand out the people the things have been reported on a lot are you know, they have a particular way of birth. Blessing so the the the the Boogaloo idea refers to a kind of running joke on the internet about the sequel to The the break dancing movie called Breakers and the eighties in a sequel was called Breakers 2 Electric Boogaloo as they've picked it up is referring to the possibility of a sequel to the either the American Revolution or or or the Civil War depending on who you're talking to. So the idea is, you know Civil War Two or American Revolution 2 Electric Boogaloo. So so they're either depending on who you talk to depending on which of them took to their either preparing for that moment or the or they're kind of trying to bring it out. So there is a sort of overlap with far-right accelerationist movements to some extent and yeah, they're dead but really there there at the center of their politics is this idea that government and particularly the federal government have significantly overreached in the Rouge? Actions they've put on people's ability to own firearms and and also in the in the heavy-handed way that they've been forced that you know, and and that's according to them off. So I just want to make sure I understand cuz I've heard so many different characterizations the Boogaloo movement over the past few months when I'm hearing you say is that you may may have wage rims his views and be part of Google movement or not. You may have some insurrectionist views or not. You may be, you know, inclined to be in a militia or not. But the main thing that unites someone in the movement would be the belief that the federal government is overreaching specifically around the Second Amendment and that that is the core of the of what makes them a part of the group. I think that's certainly something that everyone in this movement shares. Yeah, I would say that to some extent, you know, it's it's a contested movement. There is interesting. Kind of contest about about what it means and and what the biggest priorities are and you know who these kind of supposedly Universal rights like the first and second amendment who they really apply to and who is who is it risk from government overreach. So there are some parts of the Mughal of movement that are at least rhetorically again supportive of the project initially at least was supportive of the protests that came about after the death of George Floyd. There was even before George Floyd The George fluid stuff happened. There were Boogaloo guys who were expressing sympathy for African Americans who were killed by police like Brianna Tyler and philando Castile who they really see some of them at least see primarily not even an American but as a as a person who is lawfully exercising their their right to bear arms and and was killed by the police in the course of that, you know, because this movement is dead. Of the idea or even committed to the idea that there may well be sort of open civil conflicts in America there. There is a an attractive opportunity there for all kinds of people on the far right including the racist far right to sort of, you know, Co-op that movement or to be a part of it push it in the direction that they want it to so, yeah, I don't I wouldn't want to cross over State I suppose that the kind of racial liberalism or whatever I've heard and then I've had analysts describe them as anti-racist and I just don't see a lot of that. There are some people like that Thursday right wing. I would say that their most mostly dissident from from mainstream conservative. They're buying like disappointed with or opposed to President Trump. There's a lot of support in the move for judge Jorgensen who's the libertarian party presidential candidate. It sounds like the disaggregated movement where there's no central figure, but I'm wondering if this month Primarily and urban group or a Suburban group or neither that's hard to pin down. I think you've always denominator location where it primarily primarily issue. It would be the internet and and you know, that's really what this movement is. It's one of our, you know, a pretty long line now of movements that have been a you know conceived of and you know disseminated online and it's really bad up with internet culture. So there's a lot of this stuff is under several layers of irony, you know, you're forced to wonder whether someone is being serious or not when they're posting about the idea that they might have a shootout with the ATF or that they might build a fully automatic machine gun. I mean, I've seen schematics and plans on Facebook in Boogaloo groups for you know, modifying weapons to make them fully automatic. But but yeah, it's an online movement and that means wage It's bound up with internet

announcing that yesterday you have launched an exploratory committee to seek the libertarian party's presidential nomination his strongest indication that he will mount a third party White House bid the party the Libertarian Party responded with a statement which read quote there's an election coming up okay I'm very simple we've got no problem criticizing Democrats we have no problem criticizing Republicans we have no problem criticizing libertarians when they don't do what they say they're about even if I vote for the person in a vote for the person yet we have no problem doing it whatsoever Justin Amash especially is a fraud yep and any lip anybody who calls himself a libertarian if you vote for him can you believe that he's a true libertarian you're a fraud yep why by the way go to libertarian website what do they say they are the party of principle your full of crap on that one do they know what principle make more seriously and and and I look I've got a ton of libertarian friends were just gleefully with joy we just with that you know just announcing finally we've got somebody in there are you kidding me yeah the Libertarian Party is supposed to be the party that promotes as we know individual rights right yeah capitalism yeah non interventional ism is you know we we we know about that interventionism excuse me and letting the size and scope of the government we said this back when Hamas voted for impeachment and voted specifically for the second article of impeachment which the president was simply saying I don't have to pay attention what Congress tells me to do I go to court the court gets to decide I've got that constitutional right to do so that's how the system is set up that's about the separation of powers libertarians claim they care about civil rights libertarians claim other many libertarians to care about that do care about civil rights I want to say quite sure sure but let me just in a much just about through libertarian dot right because and we know because Eric and I've taken the test many times and we are majority libertarian ourselves when it comes to the belief is what we would like to see just how how society runs there are things we disagree with them on foreign policy would be well you know what one of them the definition of what you believe is a non inter you know been intervention policy you know what is the in the best interest of the United States we may disagree with some libertarians on that one of the biggest things that we had with we've still laugh about it when Ron Paul was running for president mmhm and we we get so many calls from libertarians and I want Ron Paul because he's against free trade remember that that went on for a couple years yeah people that claim to be libertarian had no idea what the person that they love the most and thought was a deity of politics they have no idea where he stood they thought he was against free trade yeah and we always got the biggest kick out of that we just in a March he voted for the second article of impeachment he vote he voted to overturn a presidential election because the president said now Congress you don't get to tell me what to do I'm going to the courts Congress wouldn't do that Democrats wouldn't do that now they would need to go for the majority of the of the of the time and even go to get a subpoena they just told him you got to do this right and he said no I don't go to the courts right now if the president if the courts ordered him to do it and he refused to do it then you could say all right we're going to impeach view because the courts have made that decision at that point you would have to if went to the Supreme Court they said sorry you've got to present that evidence and you didn't do it then the Congress could have gone after you right I'm not she told me she told everybody that when it came to crunch time and what could be more of a crunch time than wanting to overturn a presidential election based on the fact that you hate the president because impeachment president there's no precedent that you can state that says Congress has the right to remove a president from office because he wants to make sure that his constitutional rights are protected by going to the court what you may say well no he was trying to protect his wrong doing by going to court well he still gets to do that and the court gets to make that decision yep and so libertarians are supposed to be about a few things and two of them are individual liberties individual rights and to limit the size and scope of the government and the power of the government if you claim to be a libertarian you say to hell with the three branches of government with the separation of powers you are no libertarian up none help zero yep the the credibility falls with her quickly with Justin a mosh again lately you know a friend Paul decided okay I'm leaving the Republican Party and I'm gonna run for president as a libertarian I go yeah okay I'm and there are things there points that we've disagreed with him all over the years about rental yeah but I wouldn't have the the problem that I have with the March which seems like okay I'm just going to run for another basically I'm just gonna jump over to another well I would say established party they are technically an established party but what he's afraid to do is run as an independent are we saw this before we've seen this where our people want to latch on to uber tarian values we saw that during the bush years where a number of liberals jumped on and said no I'm a libertarian yeah I mean I'm a bad no you're not but they but that what were they basing that on they were basing it on agreeing with someone like a rand Paul that says we should be at war we should bring our troops troops home right I'm more of an isolationist and those people didn't want war for number reasons right not because they held libertarian values it's because they agreed with libertarians on that they started adopting essentially co opting that title because they didn't they really didn't want to say that I'm a liberal who agrees with libertarians they don't like for for whatever reason back then they didn't like identifying as a liberal which I don't get it either I think it's okay to do that if you're a liberal right they all wanted to go well no I'm a I'm a libertarian I guess it seemed more I don't know I don't know it just it it it was as if they were buying some kind of credibility there Ammash has no credibility now and again that's why you say that you know it that that's it's the liberty to go to the website they call themselves the party of principle yeah the principle of where the one vote principle doesn't matter the other one so the guy that were all No jumping on board to be president added states has no principles when it comes to the separation of powers I hate this guy therefore to help with the constitution and the hell with the separation of powers yeah I'm for Congress I mean a lot more power than the constitution give them because I hate this guy and so that justifies my principal hate is now my principal for being a libertarian yeah sorry it's bogus we said this back at impeach by the way this is not new for us we said this the exact same thing you're right back impeachment time we said we said he is no libertarian right arm you know and by the way on every single block of of every single social media post I didn't see one libertarian bring this up not one and it was the first thing that came to our mind since we embraced many libertarian principles out there two of the most important individual freedom and to ensure that the power of the federal government does not expand and that includes individual branches of that government getting more power then they get under the constitution of the United States and believing that we can we don't have to pay attention to the courts we don't need to do that we can remove and overturn a presidential election based on the fact that we hate this guy and it's this guy I don't care if it was a Democrat right both articles of impeachment were bogus we're using the second article of impeachment just to show you because it's so easy to understand how every Democrat senator who voted for it doesn't care about the constitution and I'll just in a March voting for that doesn't care about the constitution of the United States right it is a very I I think it's it's a very interesting time you saw the breaking news yesterday morning Jeff flake is not suitable for trump hitting me that was a story of a pandemic and that's senator is not going to vote for he's a story and it's like no no no no it's it's just it is just insane what we've what we've started the categorized as newsworthy while but this is the liberal media eyes I saw it first at the hill dot com is this just in its like it what would you mean Justin I didn't for a moment expect that flake would ever vote for trump nine I know I mean that's not well known that would have been the brake brake handles that flake endorses trump right okay now you've got a story that he's gonna vote for the the the the E. he didn't really endorsed by it's funny he just said that you know he sees himself voting for the Democrat in this case the Democrats you know who the dems well first of all have to be fair the Democrats can't name the Democrat he can't remember his own name so the the whole idea though that being a news story yesterday morning was so laughable a look at trump get him in an elevator maybe gas changes mine right hold L. date elevator doors facing today maybe you can convince him he seems to be swayed by the elevator being held up you know and and again so I guess I was thinking of when I saw the Justin Amash shows and I talk to my dad for a long time yesterday we can get into that conversation but I was thinking when I saw the Justin Ammash story there's more poop for the peasants mmhm and it just shows you I don't care whether it's a Libertarian Party but they're the ones who claim they've got principal in a lot of libertarians do they really do an end and right and they take they take tough calls based on the fact of of of individual freedom and not wanting the federal government had too much power but again if you're going to go by that we're the party of principle in principle matters in party doesn't matter and what about the principles of the constitution of the United States and about the separation of powers which limits the power of the federal government and your main guy for president I'd states is Justin Ammash then you either don't have a clue about libertarianism are you just wish to be as my dad would say again you just wish to be B. S. yep because you can't argue our point folks now if your libertarian you cannot argue the point that Eric and I have held for months when Ammash voted for impeachment that showed he was a poser and since a light libertarians are younger I can use that terminology yes you can definitely oppose yeah you don't know it by the way nobody ever argued with was with us back then because you can't well how do you argue that you can't you can't sit there and say the president ought to be impeached because he said let the courts decide you could you could say I don't think he makes a good president but I'm voting against this no he voted for you voted for yeah and showed right there yep eight six six ninety right I with.

"libertarian party" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"Twenty eight eight five five two three six thirty two twenty eight first we begin with the new push by Democrats and they're saying it's not partisan but it is of course completely partisan it is a push for voting by mail this is a new thing if you're not in favor of voting by mail is because you want to force people to go to the polls and put their lives in danger well okay he's right about something so that that was pulling in in Wisconsin member there's a primary in Wisconsin there's a lot of talk about how there's gonna be a huge uptick in corona virus cases because this primary in Wisconsin their grand total of fifty to diagnose cases of cover nineteen it had anything to do with the Wisconsin polls being opened and tens of thousands of people showed up at the polls it turns out that being in it not particularly close contact with people outside and not actually give you got a ninety there's that beyond that if we hit November and it's still so much of a danger to go to the polls that people are are staying home on mass we have a lot bigger problems than how we go about voting right like how does the world economy survive death but beyond that voting by mail is really a proxy for eight a political party taking control of the process according to the Wall Street journal six months after election day Republicans and Democrats in Congress are headed for a showdown over expanding voting by mail with American set to converge on the polls but experts say the corona virus could remain health right could you in a lot of heavy lifting in Athens Democrats want to images of masked voters waiting in long lines to cast ballots in Wisconsin's April seventh primary to argue that reducing in person voting is crucial public health Wisconsin public health department says at least fifty two people tested positive for carbon nineteen after voting in person or working at a polling location on primary day though several of those people reported multiple possible exposures so probably let's say half of those people that affected to what twenty six people that in fact it was called in nineteen out of the tens of thousands of people show up to the polls that somebody significant risk factor you if everybody social distancing and wearing masks house speaker Pelosi says looting by mail is central to this in any event but at the time of the crime virus very essential yeah recognize that house Democrats have wanted massive voting by mail for a very long time why well because it means that it lowers the barrier of work that you have to do to vote it also means more importantly you can gauge was called ballot harvesting where instead of you just mailing in the ballot somebody comes you're going to pick it up elections are working now on normally the way that it works is that you get to go to the polls you make the decision to go to the polls to vote at the polls the polls are nonpartisan now imagine or differently you voted home and then the party which are registered assumes that you're gonna vote for that party and they show up at your door in the back of a ballot what is your party forget about you what is your party doesn't think that your area is particularly vote rich and so they're not going to play somebody to your house to come pick up your vote what happens is the only part of what happens Republicans began in California for example but it's all voting by mail and publicans a local losing California anyway so we're not gonna pick up Republican ballots in California because there really is no purpose well then that would pretty much pretty much skew the the results fairly dramatically would it not also you know easy it is to price what we fill out a vote by mail ballot it doesn't go from your hand into a ballot box it goes from your hands into the hands of a party activist who then handed into the ballot box the potential for fraud here is insane totally wild house Democrats are proposing four billion dollars to an active slew of policies that range requiring states to enable online and same day voter registration mandating prepaid postage on mail in ballots the nationwide minimum of fifteen consecutive days of early voting early voting is garbage anyway the reason is garbage because lots of stuff happens in last fifteen days election a lot of people voted in democratic primaries for candidates were not on the ballot by the time the state actually helps primary ingress your publicans say such funding should take a backseat to urgent rotavirus aid and the federal government should not encroach on voting procedures which traditionally our state matter which of course is true also typically it's been up to the states to decide how exactly people vote house minority leader Kevin McCarthy was quick to brush off the idea of sending money to states for mail in voting Mitch McConnell says he would oppose what he describes as federalization elections although he has not ruled out additional funds if necessary let's let's be clear what exactly is going on here Democrats believe that mail in voting is going to benefit the party that is why they're pushing it despite the fact that it is deliberately designed to make the party organs paramount right here the Libertarian Party and let's say that this year nobody happened candidates and a lot of people are gonna libertarian but everything's mail in ballot Libertarian Party has no money the Green Party has no money how are they going to play people to areas where libertarian voters or green area voter of Green Party voters are especially because a lot of people make up their mind at the last second a new study by Stanford researchers found that switching to vote by mail system didn't appear to affect either party's votes or turn out and only increase overall turnout by roughly two percentage points the study examined California Utah and Washington which stagger the rollout of vote by mail compared counties that switched to ones that hadn't yet within the same state but when you combine this with is the practice of so called ballot harvesting it's a disaster area and this is where the rubber meets the road California ballot harvesting for awhile here and it's super crops ballot harvesting again is this practice where it's not just mail in ballot there has to be postmarked by a certain date it's you send out a party after this to go to door to door and pick up all the balance you want to be counted and ignore all the houses of the people who are voting in ways you don't like that's what happened in Orange County in Orange County ballot harvesting was legal and some Democrats when harvested all the ballots the Republicans didn't the Democrats flipped a bunch seats blue they were normally gonna be right according to politico leaders of the embattled California Republican Party are reversing course during the call the nineteen pandemics demand the government get a governor Gavin Newsom Bana voting practices they until recently endorsed Republican leaders out to boost their ballot harvesting efforts to allow people to pick up and deliver absentee ballots others have cast after democratic something in the two thousand eighteen mid terms now they're arguing it's an intolerable risks to public health and safety that's a flip their public is always oppose ballot harvesting they just recognize the Democrats are doing it better and it is still legal it's not them flipping that's I'm trying to suggest that maybe this is a bad idea the abrupt turnaround comes weeks before a special election for a crucial house seat in LA county to fill the vacancy left by Democrat Katie hill's resignation California Republican Party chair Jessica Millan had risen and house Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are among those asking you some to end ballot harvesting in the solidly blue state that practice allows party volunteers to collect mail in ballots and then submit them in groups to polling places on election offices and can you imagine anything is more designed for corruption and this really it's hard to imagine it you go door to door and then you find people who weren't even double Democrat for example and you say you know what I'm here from the California credit card and it is my duty to convey your balance to the nearest polling center and then a box conveniently gets lost and then I'm Martha mysteriously appears on the ballot there's an acknowledgement interview the ballot harvesting is something we did across our states guarantors candidates across the finish line but January's very different time she called ballot harvesting a threat to health and well being which by the way is also true right I mean there's there's no social distancing when valley harvest it is a dangerous practice it's a stupid practice ballot harvesting Gavin Newsom's office of course gonna reject all of this because it benefits Democrats to have ballot harvesting speaking of the rest of mail by ballot a mail in ballot wait until you hear how many mail in ballots were missing in the last four elections is astonishing we'll get to that in just one moment first let's talk about freedom to freedom works and I came up with this hashtag love America campaign involves social distancing in donating food to food banks and insuring that loved ones are getting a phone call from you all this is still good stuff now we need to be urging our politicians to actually be taking serious consideration to how they re open our economy this cannot continue forever nor will it continue forever people are already going out of their houses there's good data show if people are already going to stay home orders we need a rational coherent plan for how we go back to something approaching new the new normal and my friends are pretty much are doing just this please text Bennett's my name then the four one four nine zero help three months re open America folks the government cannot continue to flout trillions and trillions of dollars outdoors I do not exist those dollars do not exist we're selling bonds fifty a hundred years down the road we're gonna end up blowing out the deficit we're gonna end up having to inflate remember in Greece had a sovereign debt crisis and they had to raise taxes astronomically high and drastically slashed public services and inflated currency I do one great reason even inside their currency because they have the euro one of just inflating how freedom is real in America by texting ban to four one four nine zero send your governor and White House message at four one four nine zero two extension four one four nine zero meanwhile I'm mentioning yeah the the mail on the dangers of mail in ballot according to mark Hemingway reporting for real time politics between two thousand twelve and two thousand eighteen twenty eight point three million of mail in ballots remain unaccounted for according to data from the federal election assistance commission the missing Belgium has nearly one in five of all absentee.
Most feel good about the economy but not the state of the country
"The president must be brought to heel the nation must be safe I guess the nation must be safe from the lowest unemployment from nineteen sixty nine and the addition of thirteen trillion dollars to the economy I guess we have to save America from that somebody who can help explain what is the logic of the political elites today is perhaps one of the greatest writers we have today a classicist in his own right senior fellow at the Hoover Institution you've seen him almost every night on television he is professor Victor Davis Hanson professor welcome to America first thank you grab the bastion I'm you've written a piece of the fabulous website American greatness called top get trump forever having read it it raised in me a very simple question I see the president's defense team doing sterling work this week we have fabulous America's scholars such as Alan Dershowitz we have former especial councils like Kenneth Starr who have given very solid lectures lectures I would've enjoyed in graduate school very professorial very fact based the history of impeachment and I thought to myself why is there anything that the president's defense team could say that would change the minds of those who wish to remove the duty elected president from the White House are only for the fact that there's four five senators are there is maybe thirty or forty house members who are you know they have been aware of political reality and are in need of states are congressional district don't wanna can put a cold from the congressional district I put my fault publican lost in a Democrat one Republican is one name is way ahead poll hello I I think that's the only thing it's not about actual crimes it's for a variety of one complex reasoning across town wait until November because I take very agreed upon probably blooms Alexian inn for about eight years of the progressive project pretty much junk for generations and they're just not just one tap on powerful so we go to all these **** drummer do not moment calls twenty nine month Michael Kohn Michael I'm not a tax returns impeachment you were just never yonder worn out because the outlook the alternative Sebastian I guess it's Bernie Sanders on the stone for the new green beer or revelations are apologize for young speech by a little more we don't have much our angle control of the catastrophic miscalculation the ball could be able to stay home and I love should clue without thank you hello they may get and then when I got to lose they're not they called while com there do what we did and how it's gonna be bipartisan and you go do whatever we want the United and they will come and get you look knowledge just giving a call out the kitchen sink speeches always been practical moves on on and I'll talk to quit cold cold creams and broadly our public schools the abuse of power right in Congress but that didn't go anywhere and then made a really crowd because your mistake and betting everything on Adam shell because the more you hear in the less you like it he appeared on the number you can't tell the truth and he's been caught so many cons non and I don't think they want I really don't think they want because I think they want to end on Friday and then say it's really a good we did get a chance to call witnesses but the downside I don't think Adam Schiff wants to go up there on the old and then have the whistle blower band on all give Mary versions of how this functionality because are not compatible with talking to press a Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution all for all of of the case for trump you need to read this book you you built your career as a historian historian of military history of of of the ancient civilizations of of the Greeks this is the bedrock of western civilization then let me ask you a very simple question that is my concern there is this theory of of social contract that there there are written and unwritten ways of doing business and and and western civilization is built upon them if one of the two parties in the system not a fringe party not the Libertarian Party not not Ross Perot but one of the two party says that we will impeach the president because we count we in the at the ballot box isn't that the shredding of the social contract or even the original call product on which the Republic was founded what what does this do on the long term for the United States professor Hanson well I think if you read our federal sixty five and sixty circle how we can serve them and other essays at the time about impeachment I thought it would be very where very hard to do that's one name that tune because you have to have it how old six separate crafter and they didn't think it looks to be the opposite they didn't envision that some of the opposition party trickle of the house would be a European Parliament terrible but not that's what it's become and there's a lot of Republicans we believe the appropriate approach doesn't want the Democrats so I imagine that the next time we have a democratic president and there are any legal gonna consider doing that because it's now going to be the most off the laundry vintage one as we know it doesn't exist anymore it's been transmog apart in the dictionary yeah but hi this is the way it is and remember we have no special counsel report no bipartisan support you have no public support need this approach currently W. peaks of the nineteenth century of course come president and will premiere Alexian it was just awesome we have in the basement we are not in the house Judiciary buttonholes intelligence committee to selectively things by Alan ship so we just it's just patently dishonest asymmetrical one and I think they're gonna pay a price for me home is on his way to a seventy nineteen seventy two or nineteen eighty four reelection well that's exactly the mangled that's exactly the next question I wanted to see professor if if nothing else exogenous happens if there's no massive external crisis if the economy state keeps going the way it's going and the president is reelected in two hundred and seventy seven days what do you expect the effect to be the knock on effect on these people will will live suddenly be Damascene moment where they say okay we got it wrong way sorry the media the left and will behave ourselves could it get worse and and really how could it get worse well here is the story we just have to ask what did they do after seventy two when they got the winner should not my government a surgeon on both the Compaq we never we haven't won since JFK and us you have a democratic guy with a southern accent DJ can you call the right and unions kind of a central St eighty four the left four my gosh school's out and they did it again with the caucus and then they they didn't do it again I got a guy with a southern accent so I think they'll be a lot of people who say the A. L. C. when school's out and you want to let you wrecked the blue dogs but I don't I'm not sure the demography and the changing twenty first century landscape allow that to happen the Democratic Party is so the Jacobin party control no quality and I don't know if they they kind of extinguisher liquidate all of the people want in all single barrelled omegle dinosaur the nominee list anymore and the people in there a light might exist like Bloomberg S. inviting has been scouring the exits images from renouncing or the prior cell because I don't know if there's anybody left the use of the for a different one with her late and have to come and say you guys destroyed the Democratic Party it's kind of a lot of one whether the Republicans take the house of course Brian's got fifty fifty chance of doing ten cameras on them as well can a pragmatist with a southern accent save the Democrats about trounced this November we shall see first we have to win the election those who believe in the make America great again agenda with talk to professor Victor Davis Hanson senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of the case for trump will be back with a good professor in a
"libertarian party" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Lawyer lecture libertarian at the Bob stated show live and taking your calls now at four two four Bob show that's for two four Bob show. welcome back to the show of ideas not attitude Charlie dies filling in for Bob said it this morning and we just spent a half an hour with writer Simon the co founder of PJ media and an Oscar award nominated screenwriter. talking about his new book the go the greatest of all time which is fiction work that instills some some of the timeless wisdom of the story of thousand who knows how far back that story goes it's the story of of making a deal with the devil and predictable results. is a question for libertarians I think speaking of deals with the devil when it comes to politics oftentimes that means taking the levers of power and using governments coercive arm to achieve so called libertarian objectives and that poses something of a paradox you know we've we've seen the rise of many movements that seek to circumvent this in some way whether it's the Free State project and moving to New Hampshire where libertarians can create their own sort of voluntary society or things like the C. standing institute which seeks to just start fresh and build new cities on the ocean and I've been interested in in a variety of these different things but living here in California where the politics don't always line up with the libertarian view it can be frustrating and and I feel like I've wanted a voice at different times the Republicans don't offer it neither that neither the Democrats and even if the Republicans were offering something like a Libertarian Party platform it seems like they be unlikely to get any sort of traction so I wanted to open up the phone lines and hopefully hear from some of you about what you think of this paradox and and whether you would get behind a new kind of party California common sense is launching as a sort of it interesting and possibly credible third party here in California I see a common sense dot org is the website and I just heard about this last night and at big popped up in my Google alerts well with the name Quentin Kopp you might remember Quinn cop from the show he was on here a couple years ago talking about high speed rail and he was considered sort of the godfather of high speed rail in California he helped author the original legislation and he was the chairman of the high speed rail authority but he says come out and said this is a boondoggle we shouldn't be wasting our time in min precious treasure on something that will probably never get built and even if it does it might go from Fresno to Baker. field are a bit and then ultimately turns out it's not even high speed rail it's it's medium speed rail it's the old technology and hardly anyone will write it it's not going to offset the emissions that it claims to so this is a perfect example of we just take a snapshot of this high speed rail it seems like the epitome of California politics you've got waste you've got utopian promise is the sort of environmentalists division that doesn't actually save the environment. when faced with that kind of a proposal a lot of Californians are saying I've got enough of it. Tom Campbell was one a Republican who saw the the potential to disrupt California politics a little bit he is Bob the the other figure besides Quentin Kopp was behind this California commonsense party and you you might know him from from the the successful business is that he's found it he was also a professor at UC Berkeley Haas business school and now he teaches law at Chapman university is also a former congressman and a former state senator and Republican up but he predicts that candidates will be running for the legislature under a new banner as soon as twenty twenty this is from cal matters dot org. and I I think that it's particularly interesting as a sort of thought experiment on the California common sense website it gives us three statistics the first is that sixty one percent of Californians think that a third party is needed fifty seven percent of Californians do not align with the Democratic Party and sixty percent of young voters rejected the two party duopoly this last one I'm not sure is necessarily good news considering the statistics that show that socialism is increasingly popular so maybe that third party that the that these young voters will be looking for is no where near the Libertarian Party. but I think that it's also worth wondering why when we already have third parties like the Libertarian Party and the greens why sixty one percent of Californians think that some other kind of third party is needed. and my best guess for this is that. the Libertarian Party has miss placed its emphasis in California we have a couple of glaring issues and for the most part the libertarian platform doesn't resonate because it doesn't speak at quite as directly and specifically to these issues and that would primarily be the the the spending problem and and the regulation problem so the federal level we've seen a reduction in regulation but still at the statewide level we have all these overlapping regulatory agencies and Libertarian Party I don't think it's spoken very effectively to these issues I want to know what you think we're gonna open up the phones and the number to dial is four two four Bob show it's we've we've got plenty of time for for for for listeners to dial and if it's your first time calling anchored you just pick up the phone and and give a call don't you think does Libertarian Party speak effectively to the issues that are resonating with Californians. there's a friend of mine likes to talk about how we we end up with with the situation that we have where know what we we we don't we don't have the solution that everybody wants but nobody gets. so with the misplaced focus of the Libertarian Party I think primarily has been on the social issues where by and large you're in California at least those battles are are kind of in the past the the progressive wave has has made it so that most of the libertarian platform is essentially been realized in places like California and it's just a matter of time before the the sort of remaining pieces fall into place or we'll see what these experiments resulted in but when it comes to the issues of taxation and spending this is where I think commonsense party could really take the lead and. B. substantively libertarian but be a little bit more inclusive of elements that might not line up rank and file with with libertarian positions across the board also this again it it could be a a pact with the devil in the sense that by going into politics and trying to be more pragmatic is that dangerous word we actually end of watering down the platform until it is devoid of any sort of principle. Quinn comp impresses me as someone who has a fairly straight talker and actually has a chance of shaking things up in California which is why the story caught my attention a couple months ago it now it's that he would be running for state assembly again Scott Weiner from the the district dead dead he lives in in San Francisco and the the the the story really caught my attention because. cop who is a long time veteran of California politics he served as a as a a judge as well as a supervisor. but you'd be was a kind of calling Scott we are some interesting nicknames and this was reported as kind of immaturity and and perhaps it was. but what you have at the end of the day is someone who has a reputation as a kind of trusted figure a trusted bipartisan figure with the this specific issue that he's focused on in San Francisco is has to do with the zoning and his opponents got winter as proposed that San Francisco basically be zoned as a region for high density sort of you know get doing away with single family homes and making room for these four just stop you know bigger bigger Bob buildings that networks kind of forced people into public transportation and I division I think is starkly out of line with the average Californian. going global also. has been yeah I mentioned a vocal opponent of the high speed rail. and just did to take this issue a little bit further I will be a few months ago we had about mark Jaffe on the show who is talking about the arithmetic of this high speed rail. and if you find that it all sort of fits into this vision of kind of a California that is designed and planned out by technocrats who allegedly possess all the information that they need to construct this environmental utopia. but as soon as the the track starts getting laid you realize that there's all these different things involved in the building of the rail you have to pour the cement the cement takes carbon emissions and it turns out that it would take close to eighty years of continuous operation of the high speed rail in order to offset just the initial costs incurred in terms of carbon the construction costs of carbon so you clearly have people who are are claiming to be experts but they're not doing the basic math. the Libertarian Party I think as a a real opportunity here to to seize the lack of discretion and the just the the the clear boondoggles that are being pushed by the Republicans and Democrats so but they're gonna be up against the this common sense party which I think in terms of its overall branding is going to be much better position to take advantage of the disillusionment of California voters. of this new party it just needs to get about seventy thousand signatures in order to qualify on the ballot as quickly approaching that and and so we have you know the movement that is developing here in California that could spread nationwide we'll see if it represents a much more positive vision I think Bob is fond of saying that most people would be libertarians if they only knew what they what what the libertarian platform was that that that we're all libertarians just a lot of people don't know it yet. and I think that there's some truth in that but it depends on how you present if you say are you for. you know limited government I think a majority of people will will sign on to that but then it turns out when you get into some of the nitty gritty and the specifics they start to reject that and and say that you know well no I my favorite big government when it comes to to my preference so getting around this paradox I think it requires being very careful with the with the the the wording the branding and I think that there could be no to better people than Tom Campbell is known as a pragmatist and Quinn cop is known as sort of a firebrand who stirs things up but but I want to turn back to the statistics here. you have four point nine million voters who identify with no political group at all. that that's in California alone they simply register with no party preference now how at what we're what percentage of voters is that well that's that's the important question asked it turns out that it's it's a growing number I it recently actually crossed the threshold there are now more people with no party preference than there are registered G. O. P. voters back in two thousand six it was actually a pretty even split nearly between Republicans and Democrats you're about forty three percent who consider themselves Democrats in about thirty five percent who consider themselves Republicans so yes it's it was always been skewed a little bit to the left but Republicans have been steadily falling since then. recently nearing just about twenty five percent that's a drop of ten percentage points in just twelve years well the no party preference has risen from around eighteen percent all the way to twenty six percent just barely crossing over in and out doing the Republicans. so this is significant means that there is potential for a third party. but is it the Libertarian Party. that's a question for California's is are we if we're not going to continue to embrace the failed policies of Democrats no the Democrats are still it is since two thousand six they've never quite cross the forty five percent threshold so less than half of California actually considers itself democratic I think that this is going to be particularly. the opportunity..

"Consumer access dot org going back to nexxar work the chair of the Libertarian Party neck we were a are you there yet so they're just making sure I got the kind of how do you feel here yeah we were talking about the libertarian party's role in sort of national politics and and that sort of thing but into you have a question for for Nick first I did high neck I am not sure exactly what the chairman of the Libertarian Party does can you tell me what you do so I justify your job Nick I am according to our by laws I'm the chief executive officer the the entire National Committee so the libertarian National Committee is the official organization similar to there's a couple other national committees one starts with our one starts with C. both of them suck but you know what what I do is I a sure the conventions I chair the meetings of the libertarian National Committee which has seventeen voting members including some alternates Gordon the bylaws I and the party spokesperson when there are media interviews are requests I you know I talked about five or six different reporters this week and I need to a lot of fundraising that's kind of money makes politics work and a lot of events you show up to a lot of events to I do I do a lot of speeches both at stay Libertarian Party conventions around the country as well as events like freedom faster pork fest in New Hampshire where I was I just couple weeks back doing a to get a debate with Dave Smith was podcaster down in New York City in September I'm not familiar with them what I know I know you're a man camp at pork fast right yeah he does song by hi I was impressed with the neck there was a couple of kids working on a project and you just kinda like jump then you grab the band sired is doing stuff you enter any I. thinkers might even making a knife together in a forge or something but you seem like a new your way around tools anyways and how to use them and that I did appreciate that you helped out a couple the kids I'm showing him how to use a portable bands on stuff that was a pretty cool of you yeah yeah I try to be helpful where I can when that one kid was trying to deeper something and got his belt ripped I wanted to make sure that he didn't you know how they detach on that that Sander Sanders road working not as much metal working as I'd like but hopefully I'll learn more in the future I think it's important for those of us especially that work with words and paper and electronic stuff to do things with our hands to maintain that aspect of who we are as people so I do want to get back to the words a little bit the Libertarian Party has this has you know it has to spam this large group of people and it's it is not the easiest thing so for instance and the relatively recent past there have been two presidential candidates that were formerly office holding Republicans and there's a lot of libertarians don't like that much at all what do you think about that how many of them are in the Libertarian Party some and some of left as a result I mean all I can do is talk about the ones that I've met I don't want to you know I I don't know so the nature of being the only political vehicle in the broader libertarian movement is that it's very easy for people who don't want to do anything political to tell you after the fact what you should have done what you did wrong the way the Libertarian Party works it's not a matter of me as chairman deciding who were going to run for president vice president or any other office it's the delegates at convention who are chosen from state party affiliates all around the country who are long time party activists and they vote who they want to nominate and in twenty sixteen they chose Gerry Johnson and bill weld two former governors and we got three times as many votes as the previous record in the party's entire history we got three times as much money was raised by the campaign I think the twenty sixteen campaign raised about twelve million dollars as opposed to you know something around four million in twenty twelve we reached a lot more Americans we actually covered the spread between the winner of the twenty sixteen presidential election and the loser and so I think we've the delegates have been making some good choices but there's always going to be people who say well that's not the choice I would have made I found most of them were not at the convention in Orlando in twenty sixteen most of them are not active in their state party they didn't try to become delegates or you know they present their arguments in this form of I would never join your party because of acts you should do why in the future if you you want me to join and that's not that's not an argument that sat persuasive do you think because if you think that the path to victory for the Libertarian Party is sort of taking some of these more liberty minded Republicans that are out there I mean I don't know like Kerry Johnson Bob Barr I don't know obviously bombard didn't go as well as Gary Johnson did right so so there's something about either the optics of that race or what kind of person politician they are what what their values are and you know every every convention our.
"libertarian party" Discussed on Liberty Talk FM
"And I believe this is state Representative max Abrahamsen who once ran for the libertarian party's president gubernatorial nomination and actually temporarily got the libertarian party ballot access, but it seems like it was probably a fluke max because the the next candidate didn't even come close. I think that you probably got a lot of votes out of the fact that people were really upset at the Republicans and Democrats in two thousand sixteen that's that's my guess. I know that wasn't what you call it into to analyze was what happened with the libertarian party over the last four years in New Hampshire. But if you wanna throw in your thoughts, I'd appreciate it. Oh, well, we did actually have there. There's a little more to the story my head very high name recognition. I had a twenty percent name recognition. According to one all I was actually pulling about six percent among likely voters going in numbers, actually, my down going into the general election. But there was a lot more going on. We did a lot of statewide campaigning. And went on a lot of different radio shows. We were expecting a medium blackouts. We just kind of planned ahead for that. But what I called in about is approval. Voting voting Bill. It was originally put in by another libertarian. State Representative named Caleb Dyer who didn't win his reelection bid. Right. But I was able to his Bill and go ahead and reintroduce it. Anyway, we had our hearing last Tuesday. And they're going to be doing the executive session next Tuesday. So listeners can live in New Hampshire and support approval voting in contact the explain what approval voting is because I imagine a lot of listeners out there going. So approval voting a lot of people understand like score voting and instant runoff voting, and there's a whole complicated number system. And you have to relearn the whole outfit approval voting gives you result outcomes that are almost as good as score voting instant runoff voting in congress that the other. All these other voting methods that you're talking about involve ranking candidates, right? Where people would have to go number one. Number two. This is my first choice. My second choice. Let me guess they wouldn't have to they could just vote for one. There is the first they wanted to give them the option of ranking their their choices, and then know, the different systems determine how they rank them and all that but approval voting is different from those. You're saying. In in my district, Seabrook and Hampton falls a lot of the older folks, I talked to when sometimes why don't you get a men's one person or four people running for one spot a lot of people would say how come I can only vote for one. I wanna vote for these guys and really your ballot. It's not the state legislatures Dallas. So why can't you know, I read this one line in statute it says if you Mark more than one choice your vote will not be counted literally disenfranchised you have to pick between one of your favorite candidate. Or if you go in and vote in the primary September primary most important boats. You can make people running in the Republican primary running for congress and half of them are pro liberty and half of them are not only want to support the pro liberty guys with approval voting. You could vote for all the preliminary candidates, none of the anti liberty. And so whoever it is no matter how many people vote for however, many of. Their candidates only likely one of them is going to have the plurality of the vote when when you add up the total of all the votes, it allows you essentially vote for whoever it is you'd be okay with winning. So if you're okay with the Republican, and the libertarian you would vote for both of them in a general election. If you're okay with the democrat and the libertarian or the democrat and the green you would vote for for both of them rather than just voting for one. You could still vote for one though, if you really felt strongly about that one person. A lot of the older voters are just gonna stick to voting the way they do. And then another great cruel voting. It doesn't cost more. You don't have to really change the software and approval voting like we have plurality voting in New Hampshire. So now if you have one guy get forty percent other guy gets thirty five and other guy gets thirty guy with forty percent of the one win with approval voting. A lot of people would vote for two or three candidate. You might get one guy who get five and two others. Get there. Before the guy was fifty five percent five percent of the voters approve this and really. So it doesn't really matter. You know, you could have one person gets another get sixty and another now. Tough question is do you think this actually has a chance because previous years when these approval voting and the other ones, I ain't round one happened in Maine in this past election? Here there were there was a lot of controversy over the results were the the the the loser had won the mature not the majority but had the highest percent, but he didn't reach the fifty percent threshold. And so then they went to people second choice and more p the the second ranked voting right? And and so there's a lot of house. That avoided rain approval versus score in New Hampshire where plurality. So. You can have legislative races. Where one person gets twenty three percent. And the next one gets twenty and the next one get eighteen next. We'll get it doesn't matter. If it's for to the top two vote-getters win. Right. Wouldn't matter. It was had people getting ten percent, and that's not unusual to have state legislator serving with fifteen or twenty percent of the of people voting for them. And you still win you're rate. It only it only goes to the people who vote they house is it even for people think that they're not gonna vote or why bother ODI eight house is probably the most important boat whether primary or the November general election, but once you under how approval voting works it much more effective for educated voters in the more involved. You get the better chance you have. I tend to agree. But I I was there actually at the state house last week, or I guess it was earlier this week when the hearing happened, and there's video footage. I just haven't done anything with it yellow probably begin. It up on the freaking YouTube channel this weekend. So you can see Maxine answering some of the questions from the state representatives in this case. And just like every other year, I've seen the these bills come forward these state reps. Do not know what this is. They are so confused, and it's such a simple concept. It's not a confusing. You vote for the ones you approve of. It's not hard to visualize. What this is like, but they I've seen this thing. Go down in flames every single time. Do you think there's even a chance that this could even get out of committee with a with a passing recommendation? One of those. I mean lightly more likely this time might be something that goes on. And they might say, hey, this is the only one that we could Pat that the Democrats could have through the house and Senate because approval voting berry, slightly favors Democrats. But the one that really want I be. Because I heavily favors democrat. That's the one that's being talked about in the media. I received a phone call from the reporter at the Keene sentinel. I think it was yesterday or the day before that he just because I'm a local activist. He wanted my comments about the other Bill the one for instant runoff voting. And I actually brought up your Bill max, and I made a point of bringing up approval voting as a win in my opinion is a more simple option because honestly in some races. It could be very difficult to rank candidates. You know, I don't know if I like this guy better than I like this guy in the ranked choice you have to pick one or the other as I understand it. I mean, there are different systems, but I really hope that anything goes through as far as changing the voting systems because all of these options, maybe they help Democrats. I don't know about that. But they definitely help third parties because they allow people to actually vote for a third party probably many for the first time ever because a lot of times they had this wasted votes syndrome, where they're deathly afraid of voting for the libertarian or voting for the green party person. Because they're worried about what will happen to the other. Running again, obviously, a lot more people would vote for her. And then one of the other two she would've easily sailed through with way, more than four percent of the vote not vote twice, but bumper to candidate and enjoy letter would've gotten who knows maybe ten percent of the vote one likely, but at the very least we would we could finally see what level of support a libertarian candidate has because people wouldn't be afraid. Now, probably would take a few elections for people to learn how this thing works because most people aren't paying attention to the news headlines. They're not gonna find out that any new voting system exist until they walk into the ballot. They walk into the room and they look at the ballot. What's going to work.

"So why would we want them handling the majority of our lives? I'll rather they hand those much live as situations like this happen. I don't care. I'm I'm not going to ask for your take on the libertarian presidential. You know process that's gonna come up for your party because you know, I wanna put in that position. But the one question I will ask to wrap things up, you know, candidate Trump is very different from President Trump and a lot of ways he's in some ways kind of changed who he is. Now since he has the job. Do you think you've lost potential libertarian voters Trump because of his anti, you know, anti establishment type of attitude, or do you think, you know, his actions and his attitude have justified why more people who may have voted for, you know, libertarian candidate before will definitely vote for libertarian candidate. Now, or do you think it's kind of a mixed bag? Yeah. I don't know. I mean, we've lost people who like what I will say we lost people. Like, I'm voting for Trump. Okay. Understand. I would say most most people like the difference between like, oh, you're gonna vote for Trump versus are. Are you like an enthusiastic supporter in a sense? A lot of people who are seen who can hung out libertarian circles who then became sort of frothing at the mouth Trump supporters. They weren't necessarily their their issue wasn't necessarily much individualism more than it was anti globalism. And I think before we started the traditional Republicans sort of milk on the boxy. You know, the thing with the aligning with us a little bit more in certain issues 'cause of their ethical views. But that's the same thing as sort of being a rough sort of strong individualist, you know, sort of the air. I guess I'm more down the line libertarian strain. I guess. Yeah. Made for example, like it's not that you know, I threw on the maga- hat, and I'm foaming at the mouth necessarily. But it's more like, you know, he's not a libertarian. So I would be I would feel fullish if I tried to make a libertarian case for him. But I think as a long term investment for lot of the arguments and discussions were trying to have Trump is forcing conversation that we wouldn't otherwise be having because now along Democrats are questioning, you know, executive authority, and I've interviewed Democrats on the show, we've agreed on things like gerrymandering and criminal Justice reform and stuff and part of me was kind of hope. Ping that has conference. He was going to declare national emergency not because I really wanted it to happen. But because I think it would have made a great converse constitutional crisis in a sense. It would have really forced a lot of people look at the laws and have this discussion. So I think in a way he's shedding light on issues that Americans didn't really care about before. That's what I do like having Annacone Cortez office because they both operate so outside the your convention. That's forcing people have higher level conversation with, you know, really route philosophical, what do we expect to do Pentagon stations that need to be talking about well should this positive with different role will be different this. It's really sort of higher level. What is it that we want the politics stations? I think that's with that conversation open that leads an opening from libertarians really help enter that conversation change it. Absolutely. So Alex, we had a great. Sation? Thank you so much taking the time to come on the show today. If people want to go ahead and grab a copy of your book. And folks, I will include it in the show notes as well. How.

"It's just another black market discussion. As is, you know, asking me if I to I'm not a math for banning guns. A math for forbidding drugs in not preventing immigration. If anything I want those things to be decided by the market. But again, I think part of the those people neither body is open borders in the party. It's not again platforms that explicitly required to be over borders. But most people are either open borders or there for like, basic restrictions. The way that you provide the answers probably the best libertarian official response. I've kinda gotten on that. Because like, I know that immigration's gonna be another issue in twenty twenty. And if we look at how you know, Gary Johnson did lose quite a few voters probably with voted for him. You know, they painted him as an open border sky. Now, you have Austin Peterson who ran as a Republican for Senate in Missouri. His Republican opponents were paying him as an open borders guy that wants to eliminate ice. And I just feel like with this whole situation. Like, I I've been really torn on it because you know, I believe in like, I I'm pretty much anything like this. If we could pay for and by that, I mean, you know, if a wal will save an American life, like I'm all for like, I'm from a border town and a lot of our hiking trails and a lot of what you can mountains. There are signs within. US land that says once you pass the sign you're still technically in the United States, but the United States cannot ensure your protection, and that's really scary. And if you put the wall up there, you're gone eliminate a lot of the coyotes and the drug traffickers and everything else, but it's like what you said the drug war incentivizes the welfare state incentivizes the big thing that I think a lot of Republicans are gonna start ignoring the facts that I found out where the wall is actually proposed to be and it's not on the Mexican American border. It's supposed to be like twenty miles inside of the American border because there are several treaties that go against American putting a wall exactly on the border. And when you look at a lot of the land around the Rio Grande if a flood were to occur with wash the wall away. So what's your only option you're gonna have to take a lot of American land? And you're going to have to build a wall in America. So if you believe in strong borders. Your sense, you're essentially conceding part of your own borders while yeah that also traits other possible legal issues on by. Just digging through. But again like to me like the wall the wall for the purpose. Saving lives like when people say, oh, we should give more money to the because of the VA forces drug rose more, stricter might save a life. But he published a save more lives ending the war in the same way that you probably would save more lives on both sides by just being having a more generous streamlined immigration system because them way because basically put wall people will find other channels in those who've still being violent so becoming dangerous and said just reduce kill the demand for the black market in the same way. You demanded for the black market in drugs by basically reversing the by ending the war. So yeah..

I mean isn't libertarian solutions like oftentimes of best seller? Translation is just the do it on because lose basically people don't trust you do stuff on their own. So the only way to get them to trust people on their end. It's the do it on our own. How are you guys keep this momentum because we're starting to enter the twenty twenty election? We already have people jumping in. So this is like, you know, I think as a good way to start out the year, you got some really great earns press that you didn't have to spend money on. It's not focused on a specific person. But focused on a group of people that are coming together to China and get the stunned. So how are you gonna take this momentum? And kinda you know maximize it. Hopefully, this go going in this in this direction. Basically local chapters continue to keep on doing charitable works in their areas, and basically keeping as much attention to it as awful, and hopefully it spreads beyond the literature already. I mean, this speech because a national thing or become sort of like a pay forward that goes on across the country, and you know, be kinda just takes on a life of its own. That'd be great damages. Be great just for the sake of the country, but I'm the presses. Great. And we got some really cool opportunities this year. We just sworn in Jeff Hewitt over there in California, which is amazing. And then we got a really interesting race in twenty nineteen coming up with Bill hunt over there in Rhode Island. Who basically if I understand it could. If you actually has any opposition. So you might win the state legislature. See our right, by the way, understand it. There is some some work that has to be done to do that. But that's an interesting race that could really need a big making a big statement in Rhode Island. Absolutely. The cast which topics you brought up Adam co cash earlier, what do you get arrested for? I have not found the most recent he was he was giving out. He was giving out like free copies of his book around New Orleans, and I think he parked on or something and the cop asks for his license and atamans like what license and now. Now, he's been arrested for that. Licenses like. Like, you could just tell the guy to tell the guy that go. But not I mean, that's if that's the worst news coming out of the libertarian party. Then you guys are down for for great year right now. But you know, in terms of some of the stuff that's coming out. I haven't seen many statements out about the whole border wall issue. Obviously, I know that the L P is against the wall is open borders. Now, a part of your party platform. I mean like it would say Bob ably. Most libertarians most party members would probably identify themselves as more open border leaning on. But basically the waves platform. Based on the platform does allow for support for reasonable restrictions. It doesn't really define reasonable. So, you know, those Lucien in the platform. It's it's not quite open borders. But I would say probably me most people in the party, probably at least their sentiment is is closing direction or probably closer to the way the platforms written were we may say reason restrictions, which I think most people would assume the second a background Jack the health a health Jack basically proper speeding through for someone comes in out of the country fan fan versus a massive wall massive quotas. The basically have the same effects in banning drugs or banning guns in creating a black market. Would you legally revision is a black market immigration and all black markets. It's increased Beilin secretes increase outcomes. In in creates also of basically all the negative effects using the war because it in hurts people on both sides gives people vow those people who are crossing the border illegally. They are bring themselves danger. They're putting the property of others more. Neighbors both signs are suffering. Everyone's the benef-. When you create a much more legal process before streamlined process that is more generous because you can get transparency can like if you would if you end the drug war, you would get less violence because everything could go through formal channels on. So to me when we talk about immigration to me..

"And then fritzy Witcher's was one of our candidates in press release, and she has people are rain now engineer while in high. Oh, so this is becoming a national thing, which is amazing. And this is hopefully, this is just the tip of the iceberg as union we as a libertarian party pixes approach of just. Going out there and just doing good things as a party being visible of the party that because that's what that's one thing. We're missing I think a lot in politics is is a lot of people, aren't ideological. They from the people they like for the people who they part of their community. And a lot of libertarians haven't done that stuff of being part of their local community part of the libertarian community. But they're not part of the local community. And how can you expect people to vote for you? They don't feel if you're you feel it one of them if you just think of yourself as outside of to them, you're judging them so by going out there, and and you know, doing good works in the community. It's wanna shows libertarian solutions in action and helps us connect with the community greater way open up years and open up hearts to the things we have to say, absolutely. And I mean, when when people think about trash pickup like, you know, just just from the looks of it. Oh, that's nice people doing something good for the community. But during the shutdown just from like, a marketing perspective. Like this is the biggest middle finger to deficit hawks. And you know, people that constantly try and raise the debt ceiling that there is because what showing is in the absence of authoritative centralized control. People can still take care of things. And yeah. Won't you send sit on their thumbs? People. Always go real be this who is going to do. What's going to happen? For example, every time there's a recession and the government doesn't. To become unemployed to sit around like, oh, well, I guess that Sykes. No, people are going to do things are going to find ways to provide for themselves in the process during creating new opportunities for others providing themselves, oftentimes mis subsidies, the mother of innovation but oftentimes. It's it's it's governor's efforts to slow down that pending that doesn't old that big prevents that innovation from hyphen. That presents us from doing the things you might have been otherwise to the might have been more to improve our lives and others. Yet again, when you when you're when you're back fish for wall, you'd be amazing things. Exactly. And I mean, just watching the videos I trying to void DC as often as possible. I only live about half an hour away. But if lashed him I was actually in the city was probably about month ago and just from the videos, I saw like DC the National Mall, which is what they specifically cleaned up with all the monuments and everything else like it looks cleaner with them picking it up. Amidst a government shutdown than when the federal government is actually active and they're doing it. Because like folks, I'm sorry DC is a beautiful capital accepted, smells, like shit, like the smell of the National Mall in the city it smells like garbage. And I saw one video from the local ABC and FOX affiliate covering the libertarian clean up the other day, and they showed somebody walking over near the Lincoln monument, and what they see. He is Tupperware container filled with urine. And like people think, you know, it was really funny somebody I was saying next to they were like, oh, I bet somebody did that specifically just to protest Trump because of the shutdown like now now that's just that's just another Tuesday. That is more common than people think. Well, same thing city, a m. Stories about other cities where basically this like random. Stuff during this is heavily never been to Cincinnati. Not for a limited time I used to live over for years. I was mainly by Toledo. Yeah. Cincinnati is the smelly of city of ever been to. Like it is. And that's really sad. It's it's so funny. Libertarians have to defend every idea and provide every solution, and none of their solutions can have an ounce of problems. But you look at the people in control who were arguing against they they, you know, they always get the benefit of the doubt they can fail it everything. But God forbid, you try and point one of their heirs and provide a solution that doesn't involve them in it and people lose their minds..

Get everything off the board by doing that. And I mean, it's not it's not a bad strategy. And she really is like. The response to turn on on the left in in a lotta ways. And on. I mean, far as like I disagree with on on a possible pretty much own much everything everything agreed with her. So far is that congress publishing beginning plates? Be when she tweeted that I was like, holy crap. Like, I'm gonna if this. I'm not saying people are gonna be like, oh, you're siding with the communists. It's like my God. I can't win. But other person she seems kind of let very likeable in them in the dance video, and what not I mean, I on the hang out with her like just seems fun. And I have a hard time hating her like all these other people do because I run in a lot of more right wing circles. And it's like because I understand the whole issue. It's like she just happened to be the right person at the right time to have won that race. But the primary and the general it's like it could have been really anybody else.

To her speeches and stuff, and like, she's not I'm not gonna say, she's not entirely wrong. But like, here's here's how Washington works you show up here young idealistic and after two terms you realize you belong to your donors. And then they start to suck the life out out of you. And then you become a show, and she's already shown that she voted for Nancy Pelosi within two three years, she's gonna be giving speeches for Goldman Sachs. Let's just and I feel bad for her in a way. Because of that interesting watch, you know, the evolution of quasi court as the years weekly Washington does its job. Yeah. Because look at what? Because look at Washington's at Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren like they both endorsed Hillary Clinton vigorously who's like, the embodiment of the donor class. And I'm supposed to take them. Seriously. I will always stand up for the people. I don't think Hillary is what the people really want. Jenna stands, you know, common everyday problems. But I mean, most vicious don't politicians is rich people's game in it's fortunate because wheeled so much power. That's the problem with campaign finance rules and all the ballot access rules. That really makes of you're not well-connected or well-funded personally Ren, you don't have access to the the conversation about things FEC you every day.

"And I mean, yes, it has has certain advantages that other places have access to waterways certain industries that are pretty much really kinda only located in your city. But there comes a point where the taxes get so high where the commutes get so long when you try to find a place that you just won't be able to function in the city business, regardless of what tax benefits the government gives you regardless of what they do it just won't work anymore. And that's that's it that will happen. I mean, it's happening. You see people moving out every day. So yeah. New York City got some trouble. I mean, I every day thinking about. Yeah. I mean every day I'm thinking about making the exit or the exodus from New York City. It wasn't for my job. I I'd probably be on my on a car down the Georgia right now. New Yorkers went to what's a Florida. And after they got tired of Florida, don't they go like North Carolina. They called halfbacks or something. I come half half way back. I have just going straight to the chase. And just going straight to North Carolina because I heard it's pretty nice. I haven't been there yet. But yeah, I mean me, and my wife, we really enjoyed savannah. So North Carolina North Carolina's like, you could save a lot on taxes, and you can use whatever bathroom you want. So you. Whatever makes life easier for you. But I did read the book yesterday and the beautiful thing about it is I always come from the school of thought that if you can use very fancy words, and very complicated, examples and stuff when you're writing a paper in college where you have to be smart as possible for the sake of it. But when you're just dealing with regular people, you gotta just cut to the chase and make things simpler understand. So that way anyone any reading level any education level can pick it up and say, oh, yeah. This makes sense. And I think your book definitely succeeds at that. I I'm really thinking about getting a copy and walking into Alex. Andrea Kashia Cortez's office. Awesome. I am really thinking about because here's here's the thing. Man. Like, you're from New York. So I personally blame me for the simply by association of where you live. But like every day like people, I know especially primarily conservatives like they talk about like like the anti Christ. And here's my thing. Like, I think conservative media created her like, I really do. I think that she's not nearly as evil and sinister and crazy as people give yourself credit for she said a lot of stupid shit. But I mean who hasn't. But I mean, the thing is she took out somebody with you know, she had ton of money ton of supporters. He was unpopular amongst the Democrats there. He was gone people were like, oh, he took out the ranking democrat. It's like if you really understand how things worked in that specific election, you'll understand he was always out. And then she ran and people like, oh, the Republican can take her out. It's like a Republican hasn't held that district since like, the frigging civil war. So now, you're talking about someone a very strong district in New York. York. And now, you have conservatives that are making her seem like, you know, the next Hitler, so to speak, and now that just makes progressives and even some left leaning independence, look at it. And be like, well, they hate her. So I must really like her and then these giver all this airtime, and then she dances an video. And it's like that's supposed to be scandalous, vows kind of sexy. But that's besides the point like, I don't. I don't understand how people are able to defend some of the policies that she does put out there. Because now she has this platform, and what's really sad is that because of the invention of conservative media and the amount of attention and hatred just time wasted thrown at her her green new deal, her seventy percent income tax is the policy discussion right now, like a freshman congressman she's only been there for like a week, and she's leading the conversation on tax reform like everything is focused on her now. Yeah. I mean, and that's that's the thing. She like she knows what she's doing..

We covered the fake BuzzFeed article talking about the deaths at national parks that were not result of the government shutdown and just yesterday. What we did was we talked a little bit about say a worker sewer just deciding not to show up to work. So we'll cover a little bit of that. And so much more this week. We have our awesome guests friend of about three years now, Mr. Alex Mercedes, Alex what's going on, man. The show man how the bins been good. It's it's been real as real as life gets folks. Those vita don't know Alex is. He he's ran for so many public offices. I tend to lose track base currently the vice chair of the libertarian party and not to play identity politics. But he's probably the most influential let's libertarian and the country because of this, and that's right for like, no one who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio. Who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio? He hasn't done anything since he's walked in the Senate. So you could take his spot and Ted Cruz Canadian. So I guess you. I guess you're Alex, I guess those are the that's quite via role. I gotta play. But what I do. So each just recently came out with a book profits or generosity. What what why do you think? This was something you had to come out with now because with the title that it seems like, you know, everyone's jumping on the whole socialism train evil profits are what caused everything bad in the world to happen. What's what's going on? Why? Now, why this book? It's something that I think about for a while like the term profits generosity was something. I coined about a little bit over a year ago when the whole rent, this theft thing was come around, and I did this whole video, but how rent is not. And I thought about how profits generosity onto preneurs ship is philanthropy and kind of laboratory on that. But I felt that seeing that was such important point that I wanted to make sure I got it down. But also one of the kind of put it in a very condensed format that, you know, someone who made honestly be warm to libertarian ideas or fee market, ideas may not necessarily spend time reading eighty pages hundred pages two hundred I wanted something that was really conduct that you can read like them. It's really breaks all the ideas doesn't necessarily kind tell you what your conclusion should be.

Never ask again, very expert at DMZ in order to get their license, but they never need for proven shirts ever again unless they're pulled over getting. How often it the day after they get their license scam going on in America. So we didn't even make the roads of America any safer. Oh. Facing liberal liberal hard liberal skin. That's the ripple scam. I wanna share with you. And the American people to quotes one is from Barack Hussein Obama in twenty five when it was in the US Senate, President Obama when he was in the Senate, no five said, quote, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people are waiting patiently diligently unlawfully to become immigrants, and then in two thousand fifteen Hillary Clinton said, quote, I voted numerous times when I was a Senator spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming into America. And I think you have to control your borders said Hillary Clinton in two thousand fifteen so what happened to the democrat party between twenty fifteen and twenty nineteen something dramatic happened in the shift, and all of a sudden Democrats claim is thousands storming the border can be stopped by drones. Or by persuasive words, instead of a physical barrier that the pope is. Says that Obama has at the White House has that your data community. Have I belong to a club in in southwest, Florida. That has a nice high wall practically every club is wall. Practically every government installation is a wall every military base as a wall practically everything needing to protect it has a wall. And so what happened Democratic Party from two thousand fifteen to twenty one thousand nine. Yeah. Yeah. Let me mention every prison has a wall. Why they don't want people get out and he's had a wall. Why you don't want people out? My point is Walter obviously defective. It's a total lie. Walk don't work in this won't work. Otherwise, why does Bill prison solely open with? No wall gets walk out. All the time. More schools work and the most important one to keep stressing Bill Israel is really is really as well fruitful every Christian America loves Israel. So it's good to keep Israel builds a wall, and it's super super successful. And they're always a great model because what God said he's real is the shows will people Israelites, and so they built a wall. Now, they're building an underwater wall. They ten thousand terror attack a year that year before the wall was completed what was completed under a hundred and now it's less than a year. That wall is the most effective barrier in the world. And there's no illegal immigration is released on a problem. Just like we did Palestinians were sneaking across the border, and Syrians and all kinds of other groups have Muslims were sneaking across the border. And now they can't. And now, they're not penalize you every day by liberals. Let me let me give you one more live until you another lies. I I really remember. I was running for the libertarian presidential nomination. I think is when you and I first met and the libertarian party, I wonder leaving 'cause they're somebody. Issues they couldn't taxes on site. Government, but they believe in open borders, and I was so horrified by that. I couldn't stay with the libertarian party. I went back to being a Republican after I've been a lifelong Republican. I went back to my party, Jake any party that believes in open borders, and I make the argument back then back in two thousand eight thousand seven elevens running in two thousand eight when we got the primaries winning the vice president's nomination, I made your arguments my fellow libertarians at that time, they were very sauce borders, and they were very soft on on the Muslim terrorism issue. And I made the argument that, you know, don't tell me how nice and wonderful all Muslims. The first war America ever had was with Thomas Jefferson is president. And we fought the war against the Barbary pirates, and they were attacking and killing an slaving and raping and robbing American shipping lanes, and we had to go to war. I they demanded all kinds of ransom Thomas Jefferson anymore for reading. Go in there and free all the slaves the American slave and literally before through slave labor by the Muslim, Barbie pilots Muslim, and we freed that we won the war. And that was the first to score her almost the entire eight years at Thomas Jefferson's presidency. And it was the very first of the new American country. You know, we won a revolution. But then what's the country? Are I was against Muslims. And they all said the same thing at the time that when Thomas Jefferson had a conversation with the Representative of the Muslim nations he said, why would do the Starsailor? Why would you inflate them? They said the Koran allows us to this. Thomas Jefferson decided to go after anyone. And so Naro Karan in the White House for them. That the people were wrong about what the Koran. Raking slave Americans. Now fast forward to today that terrible terrible woman. What Rush. was your leap? I believe is your name. Congresswoman I ever Palestinian American female congresswoman, ever elected and from Detroit Michigan. Sworn inch. You're of the bible. She get sworn in the Koran, but she tells everyone, it's Thomas Jefferson's Karan. As a lie to all of us in tell us that that makes Islam a wonderful, religion, Thomas, Jefferson, must've loved Islam, and maybe even. Or maybe just believed in the religion of Islam or loved and believed in Muhammad and the Koran when nothing could be further. By the people who use the Koran. The five murdering and in hiding Americans and we've come over sway. And now he's got a woman in the congress called the president mother. You know what? And she's the same one. That's worrying on the Koran.

"So you're real on me, some some Koerbel. This is interesting. This is where it gets hot and happening, folks. Okay. Let's get real controversial chief of staff. He. Okay. The person I would actually pick as my chief of staff is my political director, which is Jared hall. He is political director for the libertarian party of Indiana. And he is working on my campaign. And yeah, I would take him. Okay. Okay. Let's see. A lot of the west wing. So basically politics you've watched a lot of the west wing and house of cards. You're basically set right. I was like your mind Leona, Gary, what's? Okay. Press secretary. Oh, goodness. It's gotta be somebody is fun. Spicer. Spicer. Yeah. He was a real kick in the head. Please. At least tell me you consider athletes scare Mucci. Oh, yeah. He was my gosh. As I think he could get twelve days as press secretary. That just be funny to watch, you know, if we're going to go for entertainment, value and no-holds-barred why not enjoy it? Wouldn't that be wouldn't never fun, and you'd have teller just kinda standing quietly like wing? Okay. Take it. I don't know. What else he's doing right now? So making lots of money run in a Vegas show that kicks us. Board of eventually he can do both phones to this after this meeting. You can go ahead and go to the Trump hotel. I'll be pulling stuff out of thin air. Thank you. Okay. Polling things that us an air eagles. Excellent press secretary that one wasn't even rehearsed folks. That's good. Yeah. That would be good. Okay. Secretary defense. Terry defense. In it. Someone listening to this like the real hard core libertarian. They're like don't answer it. It's a legitimate. Don't sponsor it. God bless. Yeah. That's true. Yeah. Right. God. I don't know a lot of the people that I I know very very well. And I trust deeply to do a good job and stand up for what we believe in our would not necessarily be known to wider audience. So it would be a lot of people to work on my campaign already or people that I've worked with as of own tier in the libertarian party. So yeah, it would unfortunately for your audience wouldn't anybody? That's sorry. Scott horton. You're not hired. You know, I'll I'll say something controversial contact a little pressure off of who my favorite secretary state in the past twenty years has been and folks, it's not my favorite secretary is state. You know in the last twenty years is actually Chuck Hagel really is that because Hegel so Hagel was one of those piecemeal concessions to Republicans after twenty twelve but Hagel as a Senator was very was very anti-war. And I don't think people really give them credit for his service in the Vietnam war that man saw a lot of death a lot of unnecessary, death and him and Obama. They had this weird, you know, friendship going on because they were both anti war anti intervention senators. So when Obama pointed Hegel, I was like, okay. There's gotta be something weird about this. And people, you know, they tend to forget one of the reasons why Hagel got the boot from Obama was because Obama. Was doing all these crazy things to, you know, military policy at home and Hegel is like, hey, can't just do this to your soldiers and Odom like know your place, and this this Hobo Hegel actually start being an advocate for, you know, saying policy with you know, bombs drone warn everything else. He he got kicked out pretty FANG. So that show a lot of principal in that. And I don't think I think I think as his as time goes on histories Golic kindly upon days of secretary Hagel, but. Minor somebody who's in a position like that. And is willing to say, no, I don't agree with that and push against the machine because that's pretty high position. And sometimes it's easier just to do the the easiest thing and not site back. So you have somebody that up. He was a Republican appointed by Obama for big position. So I thought he may have thought that he was just going another puppet..

"No of slowly, not an easy perfect. Absolutely. Not his human being and sometimes he's really wrong on some of his policies. But when the man's right. You say that's right. And you support it and you encourage more of the same. I think if anybody says, oh, he's all out wrong isn't actually looking at what he's been doing in your right? There are some things that he's done that have been excellent. And completely counter intuitive compared to what we've seen years with years and years and years of beltway insiders and bureaucrats so I am thankful for that. I know one of the things you had wanted to bring up with me was my opinion on people pulling out of Syria. I'm totally with him on that. I think that's awesome. Keep going start closing bases overseas. Bring the troops home. Home with all the wars. That's great that you're doing it. I'm not gonna tell them like I'm not gonna say just because it's not popular to like him that he's doing something wrong when it's ideologically, right? When he's doing the ethical moral thing. Good great. Keep it up. My only hope and running is that I would basically present a counterpoint to certain things where he might be wrong on and encouraged by mere presence in existence that dialogue would shift consistently. Always wore liberty like that on the anchor point, always advocating for liberty. And that pushes the other candidates to start talking about the things you might remember in twenty sixteen just even in the libertarian party where awesome Peterson was basically talking about constitutionalism when he was going out and soliciting votes, he was playing himself off as, you know, a classic conservative or classically liberal to everybody else when he was bringing people into the party. But then when he actually got on stage into. The debates, and he was standing next to Gerald Perry who was saying seemingly radical, but very libertarian things. Austin started to mirror his language just because somebody else was on stage with him who is saying these things Austin Peterson started to shift, and that's my hope, and that's why I want to assure in sociocultural sea change by forcing the hand of the candidates that are on the stage to start taking those tax and expressing those things and thinking about it from this perspective opening up a dialogue where dialogue is not been had push back on that one little bit. Because you know, I I live in the swamp. It's it's muggy kind of shitty and the government shutdown. So people are cranky right now with with Austin, you know, he Austin, you know, never won election. But he knows the art of the politician because he's worked around most of his adult life when when Austin goes to young Republican crowd. And then he goes to like the libertarian Ron. Caucus. You could videotape of any Scott say things that don't necessarily seem contradictory. But you know, like what you said he changes his tone, and he shifts depending on where he goes, you know with Austin. And this is why you know, I was fan of there'll Perry because you know, one just from strategic point if I were a delegate the convention let let me look at this. It's like the man didn't file on the of the FCC paperwork, and that's something you have to do. And what did Darryl w Perry say, so I don't recognize the authority of the F E C more power to them. But you know, if he had just done it that way, the libertarian party presidential nominee would not have been on ballot in a single state. And you know, no one really care about a non factor with Austin, if he had been the nominee, maybe even McAfee had I'll just throw them all in there at this point like they they would have tried to play as if they were running to win. So I feel like with a lot of libertarians. They. Jumped on Bob Barr who was embarrassing thousand eight and then they ask for more Michael batter next from two thousand four, but you know, there's a significant difference..
