Eric Brakey from Free America Now returns to the program to discuss the blue-collar departure from the Democratic Party, women having to sign up for the draft(!?), and Young American’s for Liberty signing up 100,000 college liberty activists!

Eric Brakey: “This is a shift that has been taking place slowly over a long period of time, but has really accelerated to the point where you look at the US Senate… I think that Joe Manchin is perhaps one of the most interesting people of the moment because he is the last blue dog Democrat in that entire body…

…He is a conservative Democrat, not as conservative as I’d like, certainly, but he’s been the lone voice there… In 1992, West Virginia, voted for Bill Clinton by 13 percentage points. Fast forward to 2016; they voted against Hillary Clinton and for Donald Trump by 40 percentage points. So we’re talking about literally a shift of over a majority of the voting population there. So it has shifted, hard red. And why is that?”
