Live From The Political Wilderness!

These days the only way to see things clearly is stand back. Way back. I live in the high country. The wilderness. Learn more in Live-From-The-Wilderness-Bob Davis Podcast 949.

Been Here For Years

Firstly I’ve been here in the wilderness for years.

Best Approach For Listeners and Subscribers

Secondly I think the wilderness has turned out to be best thing for subscribers and listeners of this podcast.

Political Realignment

Because of my vantage point I see a big political realignment coming and I don’t have a dog in that race.

Trapped In The Roach Motel Of Politics

Even more those still trapped in the republican or democrat world might seriously think about the so called wilderness as a destination.

How The Party System Changes

Above all this podcast defines the party system and explains what realignment might mean.

Not Hearing What I Need To Hear

I have certainly said I am not hearing what I need to hear from the mainline political parties.

Land Of Political Confusion

During the time I have been in the high country the political confusion has only increased.

Nothing Seems To Make Sense

Likewise for many nothing seems to make sense anymore.

Hope For The Future

On the other hand there is a hopeful reason for this confusion. That’s what I want to talk about in Live-From-The-Wilderness-Bob Davis Podcast 949.

Forging A New Party System

To clarify I think the winner, or loser of the 2020 election may forge a new party system in the United States.

It’s As American As…

That is to say the political make up of the two main parties is about to change significantly. This has happened in the same vein in America several times since the 1790’s.

Partisan Commentators That Attack Their Standard Bearers Are Still Partisan

Finally I take some shots at commentators on one side the current divide as well as protesters on the other.

Our Political System Has To Change

To sum up it’s clear our political system has to change. We’re not addressing new technologies and the changes it brings. There’s been no real discussion of our approach to the rest of the world and our real economic problems or opportunities in this political season.

Something To Think About

In conclusion part of the mission of these podcasts is to give listeners and subscribers something to think about rather than to push you down a path.

Your Vote Is Your Business

I’ve always thought what you fight for and how you vote is your business and your business alone.

Trump’s-Sinister-Open-Up-Campaign-Bob Davis Podcast 922

Sinister Effort

First of all this is not another partisan podcast about President Trump. It’s about a sinister effort to manipulate. Learn more in Trump’s-Sinister-Open-Up-Campaign-Bob Davis Podcast 922.

Not Going To Tell You What To Think

Seems like everyone these days is telling us whether we should open up again. I am not going to do that.

Where Do Those Memes, Articles and Videos Come From?

Above all what’s especially relevant here are the kinds of information populating social media. Furthermore what’s the source of the information?

Even more I run down some of the sources of ‘news’ being shared.

Suddenly Sinister

Certainly information in support of opening up the country suddenly seems sinister. Learn more in Trump’s-Sinister-Open-Up-Campaign-Bob Davis Podcast 922.

Helpful or Campaign Propaganda?

The most noteworthy question is whether videos and stories on social media are helpful? Or are they cornerstones for the president’s re-election?

Partisan Silos Across The Nation

Above all reactions to the pandemic itself have become partisan.

Patterns and Examples

I’ll take you through two or three examples of seeding social media with partisan political videos and ‘news’.

Manipulated Right and Left

Finally it doesn’t matter where we come down on political issues.

We Need To Know How It’s Being Done

It’s even more important to point out when and how we’re being manipulated.

Don’t believe Everything You See

In conclusion maybe we shouldn’t believe or share anything we see on social media.

How To Research

Consequently maybe we can learn to research where this kind of ‘news’ comes from before we share it.

(Editor’s note: One of the assertions in this podcast cites controversial reports the president does not read his daily intelligence briefings. Some say the story is false. So far the president has not specifically denied the story and said in 2016 he didn’t want daily intelligence briefings. Moreover the assertion has not been debunked as some have reported.)

Will-Coronavirus-Sink-Trump?-Bob Davis Podcast-907

Confusion About A Pandemic

First of all there’s a lot of confusion about Coronavirus these days. One thing is for sure. It’s spreading across the world. Will-Coronavirus-Sink-Trump? Learn more in Will-Coronovirus-Sink-Trump?-Bob Davis Podcast-907.

Economic Fall Out Will-Coronavirus-Sink-Trump?

Certainly I think we need to talk about the possible economic fall out from Coronovirus. Above all, when it comes to politics, isn’t it all about the economy?

Economy Top Issue

Moreover since the economy is the number one issue in key battleground states, could a Coronavirus pandemic sink Trump?

Half Truths

Especially relevant, half truths about our ‘booming’ economy and the expectations these half truths have created. Even more reports about negative economic effects are spreading faster than Covid-19.

State By State Battlegrounds

Furthermore I’ve been reviewing polls and potential match ups in battle ground states. In addition researching economic and business news with an eye toward the 2020 election.

Republican Fortunes Tied To Economic ‘Boom’

Truth is not only republican fortunes are tied to Trump. The president has attached himself to stock market performance and a ‘booming’ economy.

Health Care Too

Even more Economy and Health Care are consistently top issues. Especially in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsyvania and Florida. Key states in the election this fall. What happens if the virus causes a recession? Learn more in Will-Coronovirus-Sink-Trump?-Bob Davis Podcast-907.

Stock Markets And Economic Indicators Could Sink Trump

In conclusion, the stock market is already in correction. Concerns about the bond market and economic indicators preceded the threat of Coronavirus.

Top Issues

Finally no matter how serious it gets, this will be one of the top issues going forward.

Can We Talk?

Let’s talk about the contours and possible effects on the battleground for election 2020.
