Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762

In Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762, I wonder if republicans and democrats really stand for different ideas about the future.

The Deep State

It’s especially relevant that our government is so complex we have to worry about who is ‘running the country’.

Who Runs The Country?

Fact is, our elected representatives just operate the government. We run the country. Almost four hundred million Americans. Working. Raising families. Starting businesses. Going about our lives.

Failed Leadership From Both Parties

Most noteworthy? The people we send to Washington DC don’t seem to be able to actually run our government.

Same Coin Different Day

Because republicans and democrats prove every day they represent two different sides of the same coin. Find out why I say that, in Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762.

Borrow, Spend and Tax

As a result, one party borrows trillions for ‘public works’ and ‘programs’. The other borrows trillions for ‘tax cuts’ and spending on defense.

Your Uncle Sam Is A Deadbeat

Above all every year the government gets bigger and further in debt.

Distract High School Distract Rape Distract Drinking

Meanwhile the millionaires in Washington have us fighting about what happened to two high school kids 36 years ago.

Real Power? Who Cares

Due to this no one can be bothered to talk about the nominee’s views on executive power, enhanced interrogation or surveillance.

Dangerous Situation

The immense power of government is dangerous to all of us. Doesn’t matter whether you fly the red or blue flag. No one is advocating exclusively for liberty and freedom from these enormous government agencies. Certainly not republicans or democrats.

Limiting The Power Of The State and Liberty

In conclusion the whole history of liberal democracy has been to limit and control state power. We seem to have forgotten that growth in government power causes its inefficiency and creates the conditions that breed tyranny. Learn more in Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762.

It’s complicated. Why are ‘simple’ solutions advocated for complicated problems, and what happens when those ‘simple’ solutions don’t work? With airstrikes beginning against ISIS, apparently many in the US expect ISIS to be ‘destroyed’. Really? Fact is, things are hardly as simple as the commentariat would have us believe. Every crisis contains layers of political, diplomatic, military, corporate, social and other special interests that have to be considered. Then there is the corporate and independent media, and social media. ‘On The Ground’, inside any breaking story, are other, similar layers to be considered by policy makers. Demanding the simple solution plays well on the shout-fests that pass for ‘news’ these days, but seldom play in the real world; One of the reasons we are underwhelmed when things go wrong. People seem to think there was a time when things were easily resolved. Was there? The American Civil War? Prohibition? World War II? The Cold War? When was it ever easy or simple? We’re still getting used to the new complexities of a multi polar – chaotic – world, made more confusing by many new technical innovations with increasingly positive and negative effects. While there are simple solutions to problems every now and then, one has to understand the details to sell those ‘simple’ solutions and selling it can be complicated. History always seems easier when it is written than when it actually plays out. Today, people demand solutions, but they don’t want to know the details. Is this a willful ignorance? A willful refusal to participate or learn? Is it ‘the media’s fault’? Or, is it our fault? Either we pitch in and become informed, or we accept what our elected leaders do. We expect flawless performance from our technology and our leaders and are shocked when it fails. We might be living through a once-in-a-generation opportunity to change our government to be more responsive to individuals, but we’re not going to do it through ignorance and apathy.

Why polls suck and other updates to the latest stories. What do Americans think of the ‘situation’ in the middle east, asks the media? How do we know, we’re depending on you to tell us what’s going on. Garbage in, garbage out, right? Aren’t you sick of Gallup, and all the other polling agencies that do polls just to get headlines? One analyst says its going to be a ‘Republican Wave’ election, another one says it isn’t, all based on polls. And then there’s Congressman Paul Ryan. Shouldn’t it worry “conservatives” when the left says, “Ryan may have a point”. Is making the federal government stronger a republican value? Plus, Plague in Colorado and China. Chikungunya (no that is not on the menu at your local Indian Restaurant), weed in rental cars in Colorado, weed being bought with EBT cars, and the city of Berkeley, California demanding that homeless be given free pot.

Economy News. The US Economy Contracts 2.9 Per Cent. The ‘economy’ is back at the top of the page as final revised numbers for the 1st quarter indicate a shocking contraction in US GDP. Will the second quarter be better, the same or worse? If you listen to the mainstream media, the White House and the  financial channels, you’d think it’s all because of the polar vortex and the long winter. Is it? Or is it due to reductions in investment, the creation of part time jobs, Obamacare, higher corporate taxes, new tax policy implementation and generally misdirected or confused economic policy by President Obama and the Democrat Congress before 2010? What kind of economic policy does the US need to achieve dynamic and rapid economic growth? How are democrats and republicans off in the weeds, with seemingly no idea how to achieve such growth. What do voters need to do to get things righted in 2014? It’s all here in one little podcast! Sponsored by Baklund R & D

Cliven Bundy’s comments have shifted the stand off in Nevada from Government Overreach to Cliven Bundy and Racism. Have you heard the entire tape of Bundy’s comments? You’ll hear it in this podcast. What was Bundy saying, or asking? Is it a conversation we should all be having? The question of whether transfer payments from the Federal Government, in the form of welfare, tax credits and subsidies erodes our freedom. Also in this podcast, the Q & A session from the West Metro Tea Party Speech recently, in which I address conspiracy theories. I would have posted this podcast Saturday morning, but destroyed it with a keystroke! So, this is a rare daytime podcast from the broadcast bunker.

Perspective on today’s news as no one else can, for your digital brain. Bob is back into his manic, madman style and loving it! Are we developing a digital brain that reads but doesn’t comprehend? Is this why we believe things? Is this why key points are omitted in coverage of the most important issues of our time? What’s wrong with MH370 conspiracy theories? Why the Ukraine story is the most important current story. Why you should not believe more people are insured these days because of Obama Care. A rant about a Jeb Bush candidacy in 2016 and why the next two election cycles may just be the most important elections in our lifetimes. Sponsored by X-Government Cars
