Jason Pye Shares His Take on the Warnock-Walker Race in Georgia
"Real quickly, your take on the walker Warnock libertarian, why do you say, I mean, Warnock, I mean, there's been a lot of arguments, but he can't get over 50. Walk right and get over 50. You know, you know, you can sort of say, well, walker's had these other issues, but Warnock's had some other issues, but walker, he's also spent a $100 million using income, but any ideas? Ultimately, on that race, I think if it's a runoff, if it goes to a runoff, which I don't know where I come down on it, it will or not. But if the consensus month behind the behind the closed door consensus is beginning more and more on the Republican little walker camp and the Warnock camp, I've had some contact sort of endometriosis about they are now setting aside substantial thought to a runoff. Interesting. If it goes to a runoff, you know, I'm going to give it to walker. I think he ultimately wins. But when someone like chase Oliver, chase, and this is part of being involved in a third party and having a third party background because I was back in 2000 6, I was 2005, 2006. I was state party chairman for the Libertarian Party in Georgia. At the age of 25 years old, I don't recommend that to anyone by the way. With Chase Oliver, he says things from a perspective that I agree with. On both markets and social issues because Chase is the first gay Republican Senate nominee in Georgia history. And he brings that interesting perspective, which made scare off a lot of conservatives. And I disagree, but I respect it. But with Warnock, I think the biggest problem he's facing is. I'm a George bulldogs fan. I don't have my Georgia bulldog. I'm not in my office, so I don't have much. All my stuff. I got my Kirby smart ball there. There we go. Yeah, I'm so jealous. So with walker, I respect him and I thought he was a great running back for UGA. I mean, prior to the last national to the championship, they just won. The last championship they won before that was the year I was born.
Why Jason Pye Identifies as a 'Classical Liberal'
"Preface this conversation by saying, you know, Doug, you said a buzzword earlier that I was trying to get a word in, but you mentioned the term classical liberal. And that's largely how I identify my philosophical views these days is classical liberal, which is not modern liberalism, is actually more in tune and more in line with what the founding fathers believe and so I would refer to myself as a classical liberal. We don't have everybody heading to Wikipedia on this. Yes, we are. But which the modern day, the classical liberal and libertarian have been somewhat intertwined. I am not, I am no longer a member of the Libertarian Party. For precisely this reason. And it's because the Libertarian Party does not take itself seriously. And I'll get to just give me one to indulge me for a second here. Okay. There are two very good libertarian candidates who are running. And if I were still a registered voter in Georgia, I would vote for them. And one of those is Chase Oliver, who is the nominee for U.S. Senate. And the other one's Ryan Graham, who's running through lieutenant governor. Both very good guys, both very smart guys who are talking about issues from a classical liberal libertarian perspective that I tend to agree with. Shane hazel should not be in this race. If he had any dignity, he would drop out. And the reason reason for that is, is be precisely the things you said. He's belligerent. He says random stuff. He is not a serious candidate if his goal is to throw this into a runoff, then why are you running? And you're right. It's going to cost taxpayers in Georgia millions of dollars statewide. Because in these counties, some of these small counties who are already facing budget crunches are going to have to find the money to do a runoff and this is fundamentally my issue with libertarian candidates. They don't run to win. And because they can't win. And

"American federal dot com, American federal dot com. So let me give you some data here from this piece. The human condition is what it is. Most people don't ask in these macro matters, or even in micro matters, will it do good as much as they ask, will it feel good? The Libertarian Party is, let us feel good about ourselves while we help the left destroy the country. That is the Libertarian Party in a nutshell. I didn't exaggerate one iota. They are one of the greatest helpers of the left in the country. The Libertarian Party. Libertarian think tanks are terrific. The Libertarian Party is completely destructive. Completely. It helps the left more than any other non left thing in America. Just take 2016, Gary Johnson, the libertarian candidate, got over four and a half million votes. That's great. That's great. What message did you send? You sent the message of, hey, we four and a half million people believe in limited government, so we'll go into try to give the reins of power over to the people who believe in big government. That's quite an achievement. For and a half billion votes entitled elections. Under foolish must be a picture of the Libertarian Party. Under I want to feel good about myself is a picture of the Libertarian Party. Under screw the Conservative Party and let's elect the left wing party is a picture of the Libertarian Party. But feel good about yourself, you're a purist. Purest to do nothing good in this world, you know that? Nothing. They live to feel pure. I'm a pure libertarian, unlike the soiled Republican. On the state level Gary Johnson very nearly handed crucial states to Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania where Trump's margin was just 1.3 percentage points Johnson got 2.4 percentage of the vote. In Wisconsin where Trump won by .6%, Johnson got 3.7%. God, I read this, and I really, my contempt for the Libertarian Party only increases. Just remember, it's the human condition. I want to feel good about myself. That's what animates the left. Oh, we're going to conquer global warming by banning all gas powered cars from being sold in California as of 2035. I feel good about myself. How exactly are we going to power all of those cars? I don't have to answer that. I have to feel good. The whole left motto is we don't do good. We feel good. If they wanted to do good, you know what they would do? They would build desalination stations or power infrastructure in places like California. We have a drought to do it as real does. His real now exports water. Israel has no water. It's half desert the negative. So they desalinate from the Mediterranean. They now have all the water they want. France gets 70% 60 to 70% of its electric power from nuclear power. But the left doesn't want nuclear power because it does good. It puts them out of business. That's what people do not people who think about life at all do not understand the power of the desire to feel good about yourself. Oh, I'm antiracist. That's what the NFL does. Every end zone has some message on the grass. Fight racism, now we feel good about ourselves. Does it actually accomplish anything? Nothing. Nothing..

"This is the only context in which the national Libertarian Party, if you will vote libertarian and you don't agree, I'm very anxious to talk to you, by the way. One 8th prager 7 7 6. The party of principle quote unquote. Really the party of principle. So I will let my country sink and die because I stand up for principles. I stand for principles, too. The biggest principle might be I live in reality. I don't live in a make believe world. Democrats left this living to make believe world. Where sex is not a given. It's a sign by humans. That's make believe. America systemically racist is, make believe. I will influence the country toward libertarian values by voting libertarian is make believe. The number of people who live in a big believe world is very large. I don't know what I don't know what the. What's the word I'm looking for. What the payoff is. I guess that's as good a word as any what do you get from taking a vote away from the right and giving it to the left? Why do you feel good about yourself? What have you achieved by voting for the Libertarian Party if you are a conservative? What have you achieved? Is there any more important question about anything you do in life? What have you morally achieved, am I talking about what have you achieved financially? Yep. This party with its principal candidates above all else believes in limited government, which is to say they oppose socialism and voila. When you split the antisocial vote, the socialist wins. If you can refute that one line, I will visit you. And. Offer you one of my finest cigars. Let me repeat that line when you split the anti socialist vote. The socialist wins. That's a great line, isn't it? That's exactly what happens. Why do people vote Democrat who are liberal and not leftist? Because it feels good. It would feel awful to vote Republican. Most people are governed by feelings..
Will Libertarian Candidates Hurt the GOP?
"I'm gonna be going to a political matter at this moment. American greatness, one of the finest sights there is, as an article, will libertarian candidates again deny GOP the Senate. We use libertarians on the program we have them make videos for PragerU. They have excellent excellent ideas and critiques of big government, which is critical. However, the Libertarian Party to vote libertarian is an exercise in answering the following question in the wrong way. Will I do good or will I feel good? I would say that in the human species people choose feeling good over doing good most of the time. That is what happens when you vote for the Libertarian Party. You are doing bad. That's right. You are doing something bad. You're probably a wonderful human being with great ideas and I share most values with you. But I don't share the biggest single value right now, and that is defeating the left.

"But they cloak it. They cloak it in identity politics. Oh, well, we're going to have the first woman first African American woman vice president, or we're going to have the first African American black president, or we're going to nominate all of these people of color to all these offices. Look, look what we're doing. Isn't that great? Diversity. We're being inclusive. But that's just the veneer, because that's not, okay, great. Policy. Yeah, it's just role models. Okay, and one sense that's great. But in the practical sense, well, the Navajo Nation still doesn't have access to water. That coal mine that was decommissioned, like what's happening with the remediation of the coal there. These people have been completely ignored. And okay, what about the working class in general? Does having Kamala Harris as vice president change their status? The black community. Are they being uplifted by her being vice president? So far, I haven't seen that. So that's the Democratic Party's playbook. It's just to give this sense, present themselves as like the diverse party and claim. And every now and then throw a bone at the working class, but they really don't do anything. They haven't really done anything substantial. I think in a long time. Well, this is why it's very easy to have a lot of sympathy for libertarians because it's a completely broken political system. The financial system is also completely broken based on successive governments from left and the right. There's been multiple wars over the last few decades. It's very easy to point at the failings of government. And I think it's so much sympathy. I think the libertarian is absolutely have it right on paper. I just don't think it, I don't think we get to the society. I don't fully understand the society they picture. And I don't think we can get there. So my view is always been, how do we make how do we rebuild amongst you how to make it stronger? And I would, I think, if there was a strong Libertarian Party pulling at the strings of government to make government smaller and more responsible, I think that would be a good thing. Yeah. But I struggle with their whole idea. Yeah, the libertarians, yeah, of course, they have fundamentally a good idea. I think, and of course, there are ideas come out of anarchism, which was originally anti capitalist. So, but the thing that I think is problematic is that their solution is, let's just cut out all the laws. Let's call out all the regulations and just this bare minimum. And then everything is going to be fine. The market is going to take care of it. Well, of course we know historically that's not true. It's not true. Climate change is the greatest market failure we've ever seen. So we do need rules and historically markets have had rules. Like I said, like even funeral times, we had rules against monopolies. Now we don't have rules against monopolies. If we do, but they're not enforced. I'm also pro regulation. I was talking about this with the guys before on the way over..

Unfortunately even though it sounds like a cool idea it's just like you know trump even mentioned. I'm gonna start my own patriot party or whatever come on dude Not going to happen. You're not going to do it. It's going to be all extreme right-leaning people that you gather for no reason you know And if anybody ever already like left wing then you're splitting the democratic vote in right-wing than you're doing the republican folks. Oh just seems the other side election. That's like the argument against him. That's the argument against it and it's not. I don't think it's good. I don't think it's good argument. I mean it is okay. hold on. Let me rephrase it's the right argument. It is how it happens. But why i would ask. Why can't we change that right. And you're like because they push out libertarian party. They push out all these other parties. You know these left-leaning ideologies that aren't democratic. They push him out right-leaning republican parties. That are probably have conservative. Views aren't rhinos. They push those out. You know what. I mean what he left with two and it sucks man. I just did an episode. The toasty podcast about that. It was it was basically what party argue. But i wanted to talk more about the nuances because people don't always talk about that on the political spectrum you know. It's not just one-size-fits-all that's not how it works. You both will be on social media. Like what are your ideas without seeing your party or or am i thinking somebody else now. I did post something that was like it was like a do you want less. Government control more government government drill. It was learning the basic bare bones. Question that you ask to decide kind of which side you end up leaning on. That's all it is something different but okay okay. Also one more thing the libertarian and replayed republican party or one pushing each other out as in colorado in. There's this Town called rifle colorado and in the funnel funnily main brive-la-gallarde auto. There's this Restaurant diner in the theme.

"We're going to get to a fight. Because i'd never heard that before. But then he explained to me what it was and i just started doing some research And my first exposure is actually through the libertarian party. and i remember at that time and i don't know what they have now on their website but they had the non-aggression action right You know the you can't initiate force against other people. And i didn't quite understand what that was talking about But i started going down the rabbit hole. And i got away from the politics because of okay grew with libertarians on This this this or check the boxes But then i realized the more that i started reading and learning that is a philosophy and it's illegal system and then i realized it's also You know really an economic system if you look at an economic philosophy if you think about austrian economics and to me that's the basis now of my thought. Is that every decision. That human beings make is susan. We're deciding how to economize time. How utilize time which is scarce resource. So we have to have freedom in that area and were to have freedom in all the other areas of our life So for me it was just going down the rabbit hole and reading and doing research and then doing a lot of thinking about those things libertarianism. Very fascinating all of the fact that he really rests upon gresham principle. But there's gentlemen we've interviewed whole ties before. His name is larkin rose and is a voluntary conserve anarchist. And one thing. I enjoy listening to him about it. He doesn't believe thinks he believed authorities. The most dangerous superstition and he frequently talks about the giving any human being any authority over another is ultimately going to bring us back. That's the place where he doesn't want to see anything like that. Do you think that Libertarianism in a way is a path for towards a stateless society that true. Libertarians means that everyone kind of respects everyone else. But there's no with already. I mean what is the. How does that factor into government. Sure it we're talking about a spectrum here from authoritarianism all the way to stateless society My view is that the closer you get to stateless society. the less important that becomes because things are going really well You know and I certainly understand the arguments of four that But i also look at You know founding fathers and what they had in mind And that kind of You know very small a limited government and you know. I think i think there is an argument to be made for that You know I wouldn't we're looking at the things that we think of government doing is provision of Police and that sort of thing You know that yet i.

That big pharma has every reason to push being trans onto the youth. It turns people into lifelong pharmaceutical customers. Estrogen and progesterone for the rest of my life. Well not really. But for forty years. And that's a lot of money for them And the more people they doing that the more money they have coming in. So you definitely have to watch out for these kinds of things.

"libertarian party" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"P. for fifteen percent off the only shirt worth wearing all right. Let's get back into the show. Look the problem with black. Lives matter has always been the word nationalist movement. Well no but it's not even that right. 'cause forget that the organization itself is run by a bunch of marxist idiots and you know like kind of neo marxist you know i wouldn't call them idiots. They're living in all white neighborhoods and mansions. They've done something right. Okay well they know where to buy real estate. I'll give him that But i'm just saying how to make money but it's not even just marxist they. I mean they claim to be trained trained marxist or whatever but it's like that there you know like these kind of neo marxist critical race theory deconstruction. It's just it's it's awful like there's an awful eighty allergy but the problem with the broader movement with that. The libertarian party was so stupid to say they support the movement and not that is that again. they they make they. Racial is everything and race. Essential ism should not be what any individualist is embracing and it shouldn't be what anyone who cares about justice for all people should be embracing so in other words. Black lives matter should have always focused on the policies. That should have been from the very beginning. It's like scott. Horton always said black. Lives matter should have been called accountability for killer cops and then everyone could have gotten on board with that and then instead of only cherry picking the instances where black people are killed by the cops they could talked about every time people are killed by the cops no matter what color they are and it happens a lot. I mean it happens to white people get killed around twice as much as as black people and proportionality and all of that aside. There's still a whole lot of them and they're all wrong if they're wrong like if it's a non justified killing then it's wrong and so you should so again with this shit. It shouldn't be look we use the as we were saying before. Now as i've said on the show before we use some of these examples to poke holes in the opposition's arguments right so we use examples of like. Oh you know. I thought you guys cared about you. Know the things that disproportionately affect the black community to prove that they're full of shit right like that. It's a useful technique but that's not why we oppose vaccine passports. We don't oppose vaccine passports because they'll disproportionately affect one group or the other. I don't care who it affects. i don't care. If only affected black people were only affected white people. I'd still be against it because it's wrong and tyrannical and stupid. So that's why. I'm against it in the same sense that we've been talking a lot over the last few weeks about the case for people who have natural immunity to get the vaccine. But that's not. Because i think everyone else should be forced into getting the vaccine. I don't think anyone should be. And so the reason we use that is because it's just it just destroys the opposition's argument right so it's fine to use these things as tactics but the idea that they'll be some group who thinks it's fucked up that black people get turned away. It's like okay but it's fucked up when anyone gets turned away but again to your point. They shouldn't be taking this out on some fucking hostess. They should be protesting city hall. Not this fucking business. This this was under an order by the mayor. These these fucking businesses. Now you can make an argument. I'm not like. I'm not trying to absolve anyone responsibility. You can make an argument that they don't get to claim just following orders however let's focus on where the orders are being given and again. This is a little bit different like just to make this clear. It's very different when a police officer says i'm just following orders and then they're going to go ruin someone's life what now i just think that's so funny is that it's a restaurant person. Just following orders. Well that's but that's my point right but it's it's not as if look a policeman can just quit and go get another job now. You could say the restaurant owner can just quit and go get another job. But they're coming after your job that had nothing to do like they didn't sign up for a job that was going to be enforcing these rules violating people's rights. They signed up for a job. I wanna you know. I'm gonna start a restaurant and cook delicious food for people and now they're saying we will ruin you it like. They are threatening vam if they don't do this so i'm not again. I'm not absolving them. Perhaps it's there's some businesses who are being brave and standing up. And i wish more people had that courage. But if you're gonna protest someone probably the most reasonable place is the government that are forcing all of these businesses to do this. Not the business or random. Asians for asians. Yes for anything. That's i think you were saying. It's it's it's a fun argument for us but the issue is that there's cova passports it's not that it's affecting one group of people or another group of people. It's just a little bit funny here because to the liberal media minorities are protected class. So you know like they instituted a policy that the rich people had to do something and it didn't work out well for rich people. It'd be funny because he'd be like oh look at this dumb policy. It's not working out for you so in the environment that we're in the minorities are kind of the protected class of the media and so now they've dictated policy that like harms. They're protected class. So that's why it's just kind of funny to see how it's going to play out and know all right. Get into a little bit and also right and because it's not as if this is just one random. You know argument that they like to use on occasion. The truth is that everybody who has like been a prominent opponent or threat or critic of the corporate press over for my entire life at least over. The last four years is labeled a racist. That's what every one of them gets labeled right away. I mean like with. Oh just about without exception. That's the go-to and it's become the go-to for for progressives in general then so it is quite entertaining to throw this back in their face. That like wait. I thought this was your whole identity. And now you're completely fine doing that. I mean my god the idea that having a show a license once every four years when you vote is some type of systemic racism yet having to show proof of getting a pharmaceutical product injected into you multiple times. To go anywhere is nothing is just you know again..
"libertarian party" Discussed on The Jason Stapleton Program
"A people looking at the libertarian party and people beginning to choose to vote libertarian in that election significantly. High turnout more than usual about three percent. Still pretty pathetic but bigger than most because people looked at the two political opponents and they said. I don't really like either one of these people. So what are my choices. I wish that somebody was standing there saying you know what. Just don't don't even bother like both of these people are clowns. Both of them are both of them. Are not going to have a major impact on your freedom or liberty your individual liberty. You know so. Choose something different. Invest your time differently. I wish i'd been a voice like that back. Then we see this. The media and politicians understand these distortions. They understand how to manipulate perspective. And the prism through which you see the world and they're able to shift your focus away from things that truly matter economy that is literally coming apart at the seams and try and focus you on other things that don't matter like political elections or You know violence by police is unimportant. But these are largely distractions while the real damage The real destruction is being done behind the scenes and no one will ever because we don't educate our kids because we have a public education system run by the same government. That is deceiving. You we don't understand how these things work. And so i tell about our sponsors and we're gonna come back and i'm gonna talk a little bit of an article from zero hedge. That's actually what. I wanted to talk about today. But i mean. I needed to give a little lead up to this because the real damage the real fear. The real scary stuff that's going to destroy more lives than anything else is eating. Black lives matter protests. It's not police is not gavin nuisance reelection. His unelected bureaucrats and power hungry elites that are destroying the entire financial system and economy as fast as they can and the only people who are going to be able to save it. Are you in me. And we're not gonna be able to save the economy. That's the thing you won't be able to save the country. All countries fail by the way all states. Eventually fail some matter of time..

"And then of course you got young people and cult members and groups and all kinds of other folks there that wanna call arrest around this and you given them permission to burnish up the torpedo school put swastikas on on on on cemetery. Headstones do you realize how. How utterly blasphemous and how this disgraceful that kind of behaviors. And i'm not saying this reciprocally just a jewish cemetery any cemetery. It's unbelievably disrespectful. But then the people that we're talking about here that do these things they don't actually believe in god. They believe a state mechanism should run over everything. We should not have much freedom. Other than whatever thoughts policies they have and this is the reason why they're able to do this and get away with doing this. And that's how they think this way. I'm not burning a church or a synagogue burning building against my enemy. And since i don't believe in god anyway there's nothing special about this building versus you know a recreation center or or a children's school even though some synagogues can really have a school in recreation in there as well vo connected right to it but nevertheless this is the kind of thinking. It says rationalization you get from folks that they understand downside what they're saying what they're doing is evil and it's wrong and it's simply antisocial behavior. But people like this ever since the dawn of of nazism in the nineteen thirties always find a way to rationalize it can make it seem like it's okay to give it a a meaning or purpose of something you know it's like it's like taking evil and taken off the evil face to even put a pretty face on it. You see. we're pretty. You might look pretty to some people but you're not pretty ugly that's evil so those three organizations right. They alone have been responsible for a great amount of the uptake in antisemitism in the united states this is not to say that. There's not people in the republican party or the libertarian party and some of the fringe groups that are out there especially some of the militias. Obviously the Out there they are neo. Nazis out there there's area movement all these folks constantly putting through the internet on flies in people's neighborhoods and cetera blaming jews for everything under the sun on k. I mean if you lose a video game and these people's worlds damn must be a jewish person behind it. That made you lose. That's how pathetic it sounds. But this is the kind of paranoia and ridiculous thinking that's involved in this understand this all the time because this actually applies all the time whenever you feel like you need a conspiracy theories or explain something in the world. The first thing you're doing when you make these conspiracy theory up or sign onto somebody else's conspiracy theory is simply this year Avoiding personal responsibility for the things that have happened in your life for the things. You're about doing your life for the things you've done before in your life. That's what you're doing. That's the first thing you do when you get these conspiracy theories because they allow you to long will be on the hook for things you know.

"And then of course you got young people and cult members and groups and all kinds of other folks there that wanna call arrest around this and you given them permission to burnish up the torpedo school put swastikas on on on on cemetery. Headstones do you realize how. How utterly blasphemous and how this disgraceful that kind of behaviors. And i'm not saying this reciprocally just a jewish cemetery any cemetery. It's unbelievably disrespectful. But then the people that we're talking about here that do these things they don't actually believe in god. They believe a state mechanism should run over everything. We should not have much freedom. Other than whatever thoughts policies they have and this is the reason why they're able to do this and get away with doing this. And that's how they think this way. I'm not burning a church or a synagogue burning building against my enemy. And since i don't believe in god anyway there's nothing special about this building versus you know a recreation center or or a children's school even though some synagogues can really have a school in recreation in there as well vo connected right to it but nevertheless this is the kind of thinking. It says rationalization you get from folks that they understand downside what they're saying what they're doing is evil and it's wrong and it's simply antisocial behavior. But people like this ever since the dawn of of nazism in the nineteen thirties always find a way to rationalize it can make it seem like it's okay to give it a a meaning or purpose of something you know it's like it's like taking evil and taken off the evil face to even put a pretty face on it. You see. we're pretty. You might look pretty to some people but you're not pretty ugly that's evil so those three organizations right. They alone have been responsible for a great amount of the uptake in antisemitism in the united states this is not to say that. There's not people in the republican party or the libertarian party and some of the fringe groups that are out there especially some of the militias. Obviously the still out there. They are neo. Nazis out there there's area movement all these folks constantly putting through the internet on flies in people's neighborhoods and cetera blaming jews for everything under the sun on k. I mean if you lose a video game and these people's worlds damn must be a jewish person behind it..

"Then they're obviously making a bigger impact. That's a good point. I formed a county affiliate for the libertarian party. Pack in mississippi And it achieved nothing. Sure that's typically. What the libertarian party achieves over the entire first political success. I mean there were three of us. So how could we possibly have achieved anything. So i came to new hampshire and of achieve significantly. I could achieve more in the first six months here then. I had my entire life at the debate. They gave both of the participants the opportunity to do an introductory kind of speech. We're not gonna play this whole debate for you because honestly we don't have time and where i'm sure going to be stopping down and talking about what's being said. But here's what. Jeremy coppin had to say in his opening arguments. You'd everyone want for being here. We're the unlike lot of debates gene debates a socialist. They're very much not on the same side. I'm on angeles side here you know. I like i want angela. It'd be the next. Show the libertarian party. And i sport. Big in the libertarian party libertarian.

"It's free talk. Live the number here if you want to join in six three two three sixty one sixty talking about. Why the libertarian. Party can never succeed on a national level. At least. That's the argument that jeremy kaufman is in the midst of making from the free state project at a debate that took place at the porcupine freedom festival this year. We've got the audio from it. Courtesy of reason dot com the full audio. I will post for you a little bit later on our social site over its social dot freetalklive dot com for full audio's over an hour long it starts with two fishermen minute statements with the debaters and then questions from the audience. And so it's a pretty interesting thing i listened. I did listen to the entire thing before like. Yeah i wanna put some of this on the air. Because i bet it's fascinating so far. It's an interesting discussion and i- opinion. Jeremy just cleans ladies clock. Although technically she quote wins the debate. I mean he did that with his opening statement. Yeah yeah it doesn't matter what she says. After this. I mean he's he's already in my mind. Soundly defeated her. But let's continue here. 'cause he's making the point that libertarians are a certain way that people who believe in liberty principal. We're very moral you know. We believe that You know it's the individual's freedom to make choices about themselves regardless of what other people think he made a really good point. Which which is that you know. We are against the lockdowns for moral reasons and it doesn't matter to us if they work or not. That's not the issue here where he gets them because it's wrong to force people to stay home and close their businesses and all that other stuff correct. I made the point during the lockdowns that if it were ten times more people dying i still would oppose them right because it's not about saving lives or not saving lives to us about the human freedom the freedom to choose to make a good choice or not so. We continue here with jeremy. Kaufman's opening statement like vanilla and chocolate. We kind of like straubing and it's okay that we like strawberry. You don't have to be embarrassed about liking strop anymore than chocolate and vanilla but it's it's a minority preference okay and the. There's an implicit recognition of this. Inside of the libertarian party. That's sort of the pragmatists caucus. Which sort of watch the high some. libertarians believe. There's an implicit recognition. This that's why they don't want to talk about some of the things that's why they wanna make it just. Oh it's lower taxes and legal weed and not talk about some of the things that libertarians actually believe because they they on they implicitly recognized that some of these things are unpopular and. So that's a really difficult thing to accept but if you accept it it can cause you to change your strategy because like any other any type of person with almost any set of beliefs in the world wheat deserve the right to live the way that we want to live okay and we are being dominated by the status okay and we deserve deserve that we we are. We are if you present it to the people this way as well they tend to be more accepting of it right. If you say. I wanna make the whole country libertarian. People feel like you're taking away all these things that they care about. I like social security. I like the fda i liked. i like the roads. We wanna take sopa. You say look deeply. Believe this in my heart. I feel this way. I know you may not but should i be able to the way that i want to live. And i find that people are very receptive when you put it this way and this is what the free state project is. Its mission to build a libertarian homeland. To say that we. Libertarians deserve the ability to live the way that we want to live and i think the measles caucus people recognize this as well. Why they're saying we we. We'd rather be bold and honest you know and we're not we're not trying to maximize the percentage we're trying to maximize people who will identify and adhere to the principle. And i think it's really good that they do that. It's what i want the libertarian party to be doing because a lot of people don't know they've only been presented with chocolate and vanilla right and you can think about your own experience. Your own journey to libertarianism. Is you you presented. The ideas nikita. Click for you. You said this makes sense to me and then what happened when you try to present them to other others. Why don't you believe this. I gave you great argument so much sense to me and you. Try to argue libertarian. It doesn't make sense to that. And that's because this logical reasoning brain sits on top of these sort of deep preceded beliefs. And we have. I'm not saying we're like aliens. We laughed with other people. You know ninety ninety five percent of the way but on some of these things we feel differently and we should accept that because when you accept that it changes strategy the strategy that you use one more one more comment. I'll make it move onto of more evidence. Based up is another key aspect of this is a lot of people. Don't have that. Sort of to be a libertarian. You have to be somewhat intimate independently minded. You have to be willing to disagree right. You kind of going against the grain. Most people are aren't that independently minded arguable and they sort of go along to get along and that sort of court of free state project working if we get the and how it's working already today you know if that wasn't clear to me it sure was last year and i think for me the what jeremy's talking about here the idea that people wanna go along to get along you know as much as they might say about what their beliefs are. They put the mask on even the people that didn't want to and you even gave us an example that i did it. You had a well you did but you want to keep your job right and i guess that is technically going along to get along but a lot of people would do it. Just because they didn't want aroused do it at the grocery store neighbors. Every single person would come with a mask like if somebody didn't less than a percent where you worked where i work now mark and the day that the It was legal to go into a place without a mask on june. I like it was. It was the reverse like one hundred person. People come in with a mask sometimes is right now. That's what i'm saying. Like maybe like less than one percent of people will every once in a while. We'll come in with a mask but for the most part all mess why what changed in your actual core beliefs with one day. Nothing nothing changes of their core beliefs. That that's part of the issue that jeremy is getting at us. These people have changed. They're still going along to get along and you know as you were. I think about bringing up. I was hanging out with some of these people saturday night. Who liberals yes hardcore bernie supporters who expressed to me the sentiment. That's really the only reason they got vaccinated so that they could take the mask off so that things could go back to normal and now they're angry because they've gotten the vaccine and they're being told i mean anyone who doesn't see it's coming just isn't paying attention you you got like us at the top before the mask mandates return. Apparently it's back in saint louis. It'll be back here in. Keenness well and new hampshire. It's all of louisiana. Yeah well and they're not happy about it though. I know we did everything you told us. We were supposed to do right now. You're gonna make us do this again. They don't understand how government works now. They they understand it a little more clearly now. Yeah but what effect will that half because it's always easier to go along to get along it is that's why the republicans did it. And that's why the democrats did it. They all did for whatever their own reasons were whether it was because they thought it would let them take the masks off or they wouldn't get bothered by the doorman at walmart or their neighbors wouldn't see them and give them a hard time or because grandma wanted or whatever. The reason was so people are not likely to change from that perspective so given that is true about people why try to change the entire nation..

"They're so good from the very beginning. From the very beginning. Ron paul and tom woods and jeff dice and lou rockwell. These guys were just great. They were all over it like. Oh this is all like we. Paula cole coolest. If everyone he was just like you just need some sun. How ron paul still has like. He's the kindest guy ever but he was also born in like the thirties. You know what i mean. So he's just like even though he's so kind and he would never swear. You always see this thing like kinda right underneath him. Where it's like when he guys a bunch of pussies like god cold going around liberty date say you know. This is my interpretation of him. He's much better from just a better generation but But yeah but they were just great right away. They were just like well. Here's where the government's lying. Here's where the corporate presses lying this. This is not justified to talibanism this. The totalitarianism is much more of a threat than this virus. Like they were just great right away and then there were. Other areas libertarian. Party that libertarian. Party in the libertarian movement. That just i mean. I really think and i don't take any pleasure in this. I think it's unfortunate. But i think in in many cases they forever sacrificed their Their credibility and their seriousness. You know. I mean the libertarian party. The the people in the party who were silent on lockdowns i mean. They said that we beat the virus by being anti-racist that's what they said yes. Yes that's right. That's well silent on lockdowns focused on anti-racism and still like it was. It was so weird. I know tom woods. Loves making fun of it but it would be like april of two thousand twenty. So it's like a month after. The government locked everyone in their homes. And like there's like every social norm has been overhauled and like we're in this crazy and like the libertarian party. Would tweet something about how we oppose. Civil asset forfeiture. and you. i mean yes we do but this and it was so it was like mind-blowing seeing i remember watching joe joe jorgenson give campaign speeches. That literally i remember. I actually listened to one the whole time with this in mind and she passed and i said i was just saying to myself. Could this speech have been given in nineteen ninety six and all of it. It was all about the war on drugs and centralized power and how decentralisation allows people to make their own choices and blah blah and. She's speaking to in this park outdoors to a bunch of people in masks. And it's like you're not you're not addressing what's happening right now with the thing covering their face by way in that very park where she was. Several people had been arrested for not social distancing. So it's just like again. It's not like even technically that anything she said from her nineteen ninety-six stump speech was wrong. It was just like how tone deaf can you be to not be addressing the crises that these people are are living. You can see on their face like the the crisis. That's in front of them. All right. let's take a quick second and thank our sponsor for today's show which is fume fume natural inhaler that makes it easy to get the benefits of super plants on the go.

That's a little bit complicated. Let's say we get a whole bunch more vaccine, and maybe the governor will address is today at three o'clock. Let's say the state of New Mexico gets more vaccine. And then there's more. Opportunity perfect people to get vaccinated, But it's all the same. Like, Oh, my God, we don't have the people to do it. So they're not asking for volunteers. To give shots. What they're doing is asking vault for volunteers to maybe help with the testing. Help out in any way necessary. You help with the testing, then the department health people. And go give the shot, all right? John Thomas writes in today's new Mexican that the mayor said the city is offered the community college and other local sites as potential mass inoculation centers.

"Ethan Manny that will require 5 45 100 signatures. Registered voters. That's 500 Progressive District for libertarians to get on the ballot, any sort of non major party that's on the ballot for governor and U S senator and join us on the line to talk about that is a good friend Tim McGuire, who's the chairman of libertarian part of Indiana. Tim. Thank you very much for being with us. Always appreciate talking to you, my friend. Good afternoon, Abdul. It's always a pleasure to talk to you, eh? So what do you What was your thoughts when you first heard about house Bill 11 34. Well, my first thoughts were. This was a unfairly targeting the Libertarian Party specifically, but any third party and, um, obviously, obviously my initial thoughts was well, this is our retribution or their retribution for doing so well in the last governor's race, That's interesting because I asked represented Manning about that, like, Hey, what's the whole point this legislation to just kind of get back in the materials for doing breath doing better than usual? And their candidate, gubernatorial candidate Donald Rainwater, coming in second place and a third of the counties and represent Manning said, No, this wasn't he'd been looking at the election code before. They just want to make it quote like fair and consistent across the board. Well, you know, that's interesting because hey says that, But then he the bill, he wrote, is not making a fair and equitable across the board because when it comes to getting onto the general election ballot, which is the only ballot that were on both parties have the same requirement. We certify who got the nomination and we submit that to the election division. What he's trying to change is our internal rules for who can get the nomination. The Republicans control how they do it, and that's fine. They can have whatever rules they want, but they want to change the rules for us on. Basically, they wanted to put it on par with getting into the primaries. There. There 4500 signature requirement is to get it. To get onto the primary. What representative Manning wants to do is give us the same requirement but not let us into the primaries at all. So he's actually making it more unfair than it was before. In addition, he's getting into our internal party politics of like how we do our own conventions. He's been putting no burden on the Republicans or Democrats for their convention candidates. Let me ask you to him. How easy difficult would it be for libertarians to get those four? 500 signatures 500 from the sister, of course, knowing that you have to get a lot more than that, because just the nature of how give granted garbage signature sends to work. Well, you know, it's funny. You ask because I didn't think that it would have been that hard. But apparently not even Todd Young can get that signature requirement. So apparently, it's harder than we all thought. Now. I see No regardless, though, um yeah. Can it can it be done? Absolutely. But is this a fair requirement to put on us when we already have Have so many rules written against us on We're already fighting it. Uphill battle. I mean, I think he's ah, flirting with equal equal rights. Um um Discrimination lawsuit. Our guests on the program is to McGuire Timothy, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Indiana, Talking about House Bill Every 34 that sponsored by Republican State lawmaker even Manning. That would basically could make it more difficult for libertarians to get on the ballot in the race for governor and U S senator right now, Libertarian just have a nominating convention, and that's how they get their candidates on the ballot in the General X because they don't have primaries. This would change that, to make them remember tends to get 4500 signatures. Statewide, and that's basically 500 from each district to get ballot access. Tim Right now, you folks only need 2% of the vote in the secretary of state's racing to maintain your ballot. Access I asked represent Manning about that said that wasn't changed. Just began the race for governor and U. S senator. Correct, correct. Yeah, so, but the problem becomes, is that he's putting the requirement, uh, on those races that did not exist before and he's not any essentially giving us nothing in return for that for that extra for that extra effort, And as I said before, we're already um, you know? At a disadvantage by being the outsider Third party We don't get Ah voice and how any of these rules are made on were you know in the rules are written differently for us when they are through the two parties. Now, I will say we have had some Good talks with representative nicely and he's gonna We're expecting him to introduce an amendment that that we actually will agree with. And if if the General Assembly's willing tol great his amendment or at his amendment to the bill, then we will accept the added burden in exchange for getting more of a voice on the, um On the election boards. What exactly is in that amendment, My friend could use to get to share that information or sure, so I haven't read it myself. So if you look excuse me on that, but essentially what it will give us. Ah, voice on the election boards on the state on the counties and in exchange for that will accept the traditional signature requirements. Because if we're gonna be basically these, adding this requirement to for our internal politics of how we elect our candidates, and we have to submit the kid Signatures to the to the election boards. We should at least have a representative on these election boards, Uh, toe, you know, not a controlling interest, but at least a voice on how this process works out Tim McGuire with us for a few more minutes on the program. Today, he is the chairman of the libertarian part of Indiana. Talk about a new requirement or proposed requirement to change essentially changing the state's election law. Other require Libertarian to get signatures to get on the ballot in the race for governor. And U S indisposed Right now they're nominating committee, Tim, But I can't talk about this earlier this week and one to get your thoughts on this. Why not Just use this as an opportunity? Because you're not talking about this before about libertarians and sort of their statewide organization like okay, fine. And these are the rules going to be forced to play by. We're going to get organized, going to get our get together. We're gonna have county coordinators, redistrict congressional coordinators the whole nine yards and come back with 45,000 signatures on the ballot. Well, I mean, that's a really great point Abdul and actually, That's something that we've already been working towards We, you know, we had great successes with Donald Rainwater. Last year on we've been building upon the momentum. In fact, we are in the process of affiliating 22 new counties this year Because of all the renewed interest, we're more than doubling or I think we're just about doubling our active counties This year. We're continuing to grow. And no, I mean are these are these, um Requirements. Impossible. Absolutely not on and that's why that's why we're willing to work with. Um we were hoping to work with representative Manning. But we're at this point working with representative nicely to say. All right. If this is the requirement, you know, it's fine. We'll accept it. But we we have to get something for our troubles because again They're so money As you know, Abdul. There's so many of the laws that were written against us. Make it harder for third parties, Toe have a voice. Um, just add one more thing onto that pile is is a little unfair. Unless you're going to give us something for it, My friend where you see just one final question. Where'd you see this? Legislation going? What do you folks are prepared to do to fight it? Well, honestly, if the if the amendment doesn't doesn't get added, the nicely amendment doesn't get passed, and then we are firmly against this proposal. We're asking all the representatives voted down and and if it does get passed, I mean, we will be prepared Teofilo this a civil rights violation there, basically trying to stifle the third of the voice of the third parties..

"Two million votes And it's not really that big of a threat. And i think you know this is where a lot of people kind of get me where they're like. Oh yeah well you know they're not gonna win. They've only got two million votes one million votes. Whatever and there's there are a lot of people generally who who are so sick of the two party system that they just say well libertarians. Not gonna win. I'm just not going to waste my time. And so they things. It's not that the necessarily not gonna win is that they have to get campaign managers in there. That understand what they're doing. I'm not gonna talk about any particular campaign but there's absolutely no question or no doubt that were not assembling well-qualified educated campaign teens that know how to run a proper campaign in the process of creating this film. We've assembled from the vessel in the will. And i say that's not just patting ourselves on back. We went out and we've got some of the best mathematicians in the country who factually understand numbers. We put them together. We pre interview to. We made sure our beliefs were reality that our opinions were fact in doing so and discussing this and discussing campaigns in sitting down with a couple of best campaign managers that existed the reality simple so so we're led to believe that. Our current system is horrendous for third party success. Mathematically that's not actually accurate mathematically weren't a significant good position if campaign properly. I'll try and go into a less fourie portion of explained this at length. I'll try and do it as short as possible. But let's say we have a campaign team we say you know what let's take a bus and we'll go all around the country and we'll find all around the country we'll talk everywhere for like thirteen seconds and somehow talking for thirteen seconds and every state to be a big deal. We'll go all the way to alaska even convince alaskan voters vote. Well here's the problem. What do the reds and blues do very well right now and that's not spend money and time where they can't win right they're not gonna you know. There's not a republican presidential candidate. Who's running order california state. I'm about to win california. They're not going to spend that time. Never through can fight in the states where they potentially can win. You know where they've got to motivate independent voters in motivate just enough of their voters ship to actually show up not going over. Send over some time in states where they have tents landslide right there. You go game theory. As i happen to have that on my desk. Such if let's say a third party campaign once again we're not gonna talk about specifically was to spend their limited resources and a handful of states with a large independent registered voter base which as reminder everybody independent registered voters are the largest number in the united states if you go to the states with a large independent pets with a reasonable balanced republican democrat standpoint. And if you're also marketing and campaigning to both of those parties and spend your limited resources there with a good candidate that speaks to. The audience has a platform is very reasonable that you can take ten to fifteen percent of each party gets them to vote for you. It's very reasonable that you can motivate twenty four to twenty six percent of your typical independent base of that voter shift in that state and guess what those numbers lead to you winning a majority in that state because you're a third candidate out of that because it's no longer about a fifty fifty percents standpoint matter of fact from latour votes standpoint. It's no longer about two hundred seventy into her eighty electoral votes because there's multiple significant candidates. That's why it behooves the libertarian party for a green party candidate be strong and vice versa. Because suddenly it's even less numbers of electoral votes. You knew and because of that if a party put an emphasis on twelve to fifteen significant states where they put their time and their money in and they had a candid worth listening to that truly believes in their platform anchoring market themselves to the other parties that can show up and set up a an actual an actual rally for democrats say democrats. I want you to come here. I want to ask me a question. I wanna give you answers insane for republicans. I wanna be your voice to. I'm not just will libertarian-leaning green party voice trying to be everyone's president. Yes what you're gonna win a few states if you start winning if you what happens you are relevance in a good game with a handful dollars more. Say luke change raise last year. Plenty cohesive battle and the states where they have a large number of independent voters. Reality is you have a legitimate shot and this is interesting too because you know you mentioned you need good campaign teams and you know there's this there's this thing within the libertarian party that everybody has to be a libertarian. That you work with. And i've talked to some people who they've worked on democrat and republican campaigns. You're talking yeah. And it's it's it's these are people who have one major elections. They have that experience. They know how to organize it and they're not necessarily as tied to a party. As most of the candidates themselves are the maturity of campaign majors in this world. Aren't there pneumatic hired guns. Their job isn't to be mcrae ronald republican. Their job is to be employed just like politicians judges to be employed. So because of that. We'll who's ever kinda check in. Here's a shocking thing. It's not that expensive to hire campaign manager in a qualified campaign manager. Yes the top three or four. Our guys who are making or women were making millions of dollars a year but guess what the next year are. People that are making fifty to seventy five to eighty thousand dollars campaign cycle. And when you have three million dollars you can afford a seventy five thousand dollars campaign major. That's excellent at what they do. And now you have a reasonable shot because you have to understand the game hiring people and asking volunteers to do who are qualified and haven't fought these battles that don't get it right.

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
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
