Dave Smith came to my apartment to have a chat about America. Dave is a really well read staunch libertarian. So he breaks it down from an intelligent place that’s not biased towards any powerful political party. (*Libertarians are not powerful). It’s a great, accessible way to hear about the state of the United States.

Dave Smith came over to my apartment so we could talk about this growing disillusionment I’m experiencing with our federal government. Dave is a devout libertarian and he knows a lot more of the facts than I do, so we discussed a lot of where we’ve gone wrong and where our politicians and generals have betrayed the will of its people. Listen to it now, because when the revolution comes, downloading podcasts won’t be easy.

Way to set the camera at the right angle, dipshit.


This wasn’t a long time ago. This was 2007. You probably can remember where you were in 2007. The same people responsible for this ARE STILL IN POWER. We’ve lost control. Knowing won’t do anything. They don’t care if we know. They don’t care.
