easier to continuing on and ensuring
00:02
that good candidates or they need outs
00:06
on my time to my friends by culling and
00:20
or having me here now I don’t have any
00:28
time just a simple man that I prefer to
00:30
speak I want to tell you that were
00:36
facing difficult times we have endless
00:39
war endless infringement on our lives
00:42
our rights my property we have endless
00:45
taxation and endless debt and endless
00:49
that’s been important but we also were
00:51
dealing mean I’m an unprecedented
00:53
opportunities first let me tell you a
00:56
little bit about myself that needs to
00:57
run I am literally spike
01:02
I am from each area I would say as I’m
01:05
talking the better part of 20 years and
01:07
a few years ago I decided to mend that
01:09
was my life
01:11
that which is sharing the message of
01:14
freedom liberty self ownership and honor
01:22
I actually may be the my community
01:26
co-owner of muddy waters media the
01:28
co-host at the money line and the most
01:31
of my fellow Americans and in the last
01:34
two years of doing two weekly live for
01:37
eternity podcast I wrote two things one
01:39
how to talk about people live right now
01:41
and two how to spread the message of
01:45
Liberty to a public that is often afraid
01:49
of freedom now the duopoly or either
01:52
holding the republic rats have really
01:55
overplayed their hands in this cycle
01:57
they are about to present the two most
01:59
terrific candidates in recent memory
02:02
Donald Trump and remove them perhaps
02:06
it’s the nomination so we know from the
02:11
last election cycle that somewhere
02:13
around forty six percent of eligible
02:15
voters did not though if they’re not
02:19
going to comment none of the above would
02:22
have won in a landslide in every single
02:25
state and a minimum of that big four
02:28
percent of voters of those who voted
02:29
Republican or Democrat a lot of we’re
02:32
just holding their nose and then voting
02:34
for
02:34
whichever candidate seemed you know less
02:38
toxic to them so we know we have the
02:41
chip stack against us from the president
02:43
of the Congress to need FEC
02:45
down to the state election boards to the
02:48
finish numbers
02:50
debates the needs to media we know that
02:54
this system is set up to shut us out as
02:58
much as humanly possible
03:00
this system is a joke so what we did
03:04
less than one part as Merman supreme
03:08
twenty main I could ask next I’ve only
03:11
two questions from our quitting rates
03:13
quite a bit number one what are you
03:17
doing and number two why the hell are so
03:22
many people joining you in doing this
03:25
well the answer to that and the reason
03:28
why I think Furman is the best fit for
03:30
us is very simple we are capturing the
03:33
closest imagination capturing attention
03:38
and then presenting them with the
03:40
libertarian message a message of freedom
03:42
and liberty non-aggression and a
03:45
fellowship now I want to tell you
03:53
this intensity was just at the wheel in
03:57
college convention where she was
04:00
speaking alongside however they
04:03
presidential candidates he was not only
04:06
the only member pturner ended but he was
04:09
the only third party candidate invited
04:11
and when I was here was a democratic
04:12
values her diary was there he was also
04:15
interviewed yesterday on Insider
04:17
magazine which has in breach of 80
04:19
million followers now focus all the
04:21
attention in the world is great but it’s
04:24
not enough
04:25
what is the point of going on diagnostic
04:29
Kennedy unlocks business if you’re going
04:32
to go there to say that you’re not going
04:34
in the drug war or university to say
04:36
whether America
04:42
[Applause]
04:46
as I hear often that makes the party
04:50
look like a joke confirming its people’s
04:55
attention he captures their imagination
04:57
with this well-known satire and then he
05:01
actually starts spraying the libertarian
05:03
message to them he takes that
05:05
opportunity to give them the most
05:06
empathetic and most powerful message the
05:09
libertarian message you own yourself no
05:12
one has the right to harm you or light
05:14
your rights for your property and we see
05:17
in the side view and against anyone who
05:19
tries to do that I’m also trying to do
05:23
my part but with on my shows and on
05:26
talking on ready to go on the podcast
05:30
and also by meeting people in person
05:31
tomorrow I think you can Tom mentioned
05:34
being on the pavement or something that
05:37
was set up by the Braves helping manage
05:39
rent the Ritter he is the vice chair of
05:41
the Libertarian Party North Carolina
05:43
remember his name because people weren’t
05:46
likely end up being the chair of the
05:48
party here absolute Superman
05:54
that maybe is romantic he came up with
05:56
this idea called the pound payment but
05:59
what palpate that is is and we started
06:01
it into North Carolina we go into some
06:03
of the poorest and most marginalized
06:06
communities in this country we knock on
06:09
their doors and we shielded getting our
06:11
best the military investments an
06:13
unvarnished messer of freedom debuts
06:17
there as well when we went this was more
06:19
about proof of concept this time around
06:20
we’re really sure if it would work we
06:22
had about 15 20 people and we know would
06:25
it work people you know in their doors
06:28
for us when they need at least be
06:29
receptive their response was
06:32
overwhelming not really receptive not
06:35
only did they open their doors they were
06:37
walking through feeding our center turns
06:39
out lo and behold we didn’t have to tell
06:42
them that the government was monument we
06:44
didn’t have to tell them that they would
06:46
be better off it makes me angry
06:48
they were the ones telling us that and
06:50
it was an amazing opportunity she was to
06:52
be able to share that and in that in
06:54
that first time was about 15 volunteers
06:57
almost essentially a proof of concept we
06:59
signed up to 30 people to the
07:01
Libertarian Party Don Carolina
07:04
[Applause]
07:08
that can be planned these were
07:10
overwhelmingly for probably what Jacob
07:13
90% black neighborhood today
07:15
overwhelmingly black neighborhoods these
07:17
were people that were telling us that
07:18
they were there helping them those who
07:20
voted Democrats when they didn’t vote at
07:22
all and we changed the conversation in
07:24
that neighborhood it was so successful
07:26
that we are going to be doing many more
07:28
these comment even is going to become a
07:29
regular thing
07:31
starting in the Cheryl Islands and
07:33
working with and perfecting it there and
07:35
working with affiliates and other states
07:37
to spread it around the entire country
07:40
team supreme and I are completely behind
07:42
this and we’ll be doing this again
07:44
starting with Carolina – going
07:45
throughout the country brent was so
07:47
impressed with our commitment to
07:48
greenness that he actually has decided
07:50
to endorse our campaign and join team
07:52
supreme so we would definitely move
07:54
eating very much more about time and we
07:58
need something to catch our attention
07:59
bottom line we need someone to get
08:02
people’s attention
08:03
Burton supreme goes back in an
08:05
absolutely fundamental way he is getting
08:08
the youth and he’s getting unaffiliated
08:10
voters he’s the people that are the most
08:12
lately third party were to not vote at
08:16
all and so this is an unprecedented
08:18
opportunity for us to right back to
08:22
unknown high levels of both count
08:26
friends – play momentum
08:28
verbal supreme is my president and
08:31
revere support we will build a coalition
08:35
of the impressed the outraged and
08:38
disinfected exited disenfranchised and
08:41
we will ride it all the way to the White
08:42
House thank you so much
