6:38
mudwater the most appropriately named sponsor of muddy waters media if you woke up today and said my god if i never
6:45
have another cup of coffee it’ll be too soon instead i would like to have something that’s made of oh i don’t know
6:51
masala chai cacao mushrooms turmeric sea salt cinnamon and literally nothing else
6:56
well folks i have some fantastic news for you there is apparently a company that has already had a similar thought for some reason and they made it and put
7:03
it in this little tin here that this man is holding right now on this picture if you are listening to it i’m describing
7:09
what our ad looks like it’s not really that important but if you go to muddywatersmedia.com actually no i’m sorry muddywaters of
7:15
freedom.com mud you can buy a starter pack of mud water it has one seventh the cup of caffeine just enough caffeine to
7:22
get you all hyped up like this but not so much that it ends up making you crash and have high blood pressure
7:29
and heart problems later in life like this so go to muddy waters of freedom.com mud
7:34
to get your uh starter pack today and you are definitely gonna want to get some honey to go with that because those
7:40
ingredients taste exactly like you would think they would together defy the power in stitches and glitches
7:47
uh sell and make the most amazing tumblers in existence tumblers like this
7:54
oh wow it does that thing in the green screen anyway that’s it doesn’t that’s not actually from the tumbler that’s the
8:00
green screen but it makes amazing tumblers like that and uh they are some of the best that are ever produced you
8:06
they will keep your hots hot your cold cold your lukewarms lukewarm for an ungodly number of hours you will be
8:11
shocked and appalled at how long this will keep the liquids that you put in it the exact temperature you put it in uh
8:17
for however many hours it does so um if you go to stitches and glitches dot com or defy thepower.com you can get some
8:25
incredible tumblers you can also get a kit that turns it into a water pipe not a bong
8:30
that’s illegal in many states they would never ever break the law it is a water pipe
8:36
perfectly legal totally different don’t do drugs also all of their uh customizations are free
8:43
which is insane it seems like they might have been hitting their own water pipe when they came up with that idea but it is entirely free it is completely free
8:51
and don’t use muddy tumbler for 10 off because the last time we forgot to take that off like we did now and uh so many
8:58
people uh use that code and then they had to re-reinstate it because we got that you
9:04
guys got mad at them for not i should probably change that graphic anyway uh the stitches and glitches.com and

13:36
what we’re here to talk about larry you’ve been on the show you’re welcome to say it again you’ve said it uh every
13:41
time i have you on uh but uh i i guess i’ll start with lauren and then go on to joanna uh if you guys could just briefly
13:47
tell us tell the folks at home how you got where you are and what you’re trying to do for the liberty movement was there
13:54
kind of an aha moment that brought you to that uh was it sort of a gradual evolution over time everyone has their
14:00
genesis story tell us yours and what we’ll start with lauren yeah thanks spike
14:06
and you know i’ll share i think my my journey to the liberty movement isn’t that different from many others
14:11
you know i like to tell people i’m a i’m a recovering republican but it was during the 2020 election
14:18
cycle that you know i’d had enough and before i founded people for liberty
14:24
in 2020 my exploration of the movement was mainly online you know what are my friends saying what are other people
14:31
saying what is the media saying what are media personalities saying you know i’m so grateful to you and to
14:37
larry and his podcast the sharp way as well because you both have been active advocates
14:43
for liberty undiluted liberty and you know
14:49
deciding to start a non-profit organization people for liberty i didn’t come to that decision lightly i did my
14:56
homework i explored the landscape i looked at what are all of the other organizations involved and to me it
15:02
seemed like there were a lot of public policy analyst groups and think tanks
15:07
and content creators and people really working to get the message out but there wasn’t any
15:14
organization directly focused on building community on building a home
15:19
a warm welcoming diverse and inclusive home for people that either felt disaffected
15:26
by either the two major parties or even you know their party of choice but who wanted to promote liberty so
15:33
i feel very grateful and proud to have had the opportunity to found that organization got it up and running it is
15:39
now operating on its own and i stepped down as chair of the board of directors at the beginning of march
15:45
to now turn my attention to independent candidates our independent candidates need help
15:51
they do not have parties behind them they need the support of a super pac
15:58
of media groups of marketing professionals and larry and spike both of you know
16:05
this struggle as professional marketers professional media personalities but also as candidates who have you know
16:12
really run the gamut and run the trail so turning up my attention to independent
16:18
candidates was kind of a natural segue away from people for liberty and one of the things i i did first and
16:25
foremost was say hey joanna we don’t have enough events in the liberty movement that are really
16:31
engaging with the mainstream audience and if we want to support independent candidates liberty minded independent
16:39
candidates mind you we need to be bringing the message outside of the movement what can we do
16:46
and joanna joanna and i are both in texas i split my time between houston and austin and joanna’s in the dallas
16:52
area but we’re both long time south by southwest aficionados i’m a serial
16:57
entrepreneur i’ve worked in tech for over 10 years most recently in venture capital so like i’ve done the south by dance and
17:04
i know joanna has as well on the music side and i said joanna i know a lot about pitch competitions and working
17:10
with startups and entrepreneurs i’m not a live event gal you are
17:16
what do you think how can we bring the liberty message to the mainstream can we do it at south
17:22
by and with that i’ll kick it to joanna because we weren’t sure this was a grand
17:29
experiment and joanna fought long and hard to get a liberty message on that stage
17:35
yeah we’ll um we’ll find out how it goes down so i guess my origin story is somewhat
17:42
similar to lawrence and i i really wasn’t all that involved in politics wasn’t that interesting i was a music
17:48
person my background’s in television and then um music for the past 15 years or so
17:54
um but what i’ve found is that people just want to come together
18:00
people just want their liberty people just want to be in a community and care about one another and of course the
18:07
media does not represent what we’re all about as people and our political parties do not
18:14
represent what we’re all about as people um living in a red state and in a i guess kind of
18:22
a blue industry i feel like i’ve got a really wide balance of friends i’ve got
18:27
friends that i do consider well kind of really close to far right and i’ve got friends that are avowed
18:33
socialists they’re wonderful people all of them and um so for the music business i i’ve
18:40
really started to see how we actually have so much more in common than we have
18:45
that are different and haven’t been gone to south by southwest so much
18:50
it’s it’s the place that i really think people are open to new ideas the whole
18:55
point of south by southwest is that it is it is where airbnb first started on uber
19:02
pretty much any major tech company that you see any new idea is the first place i’ve ever heard of bitcoin
19:08
um there’s so much there and most of the politicians that are all kind of getting
19:13
well known on the cutting edge have all been there i think aoc was there a couple years ago rand paul um
19:20
i got really mad at the obamas once because the motorcade got in the way of me going one of my favorite bands so i
19:26
was yelling at the police i don’t care if michelle obama’s in that car i need to get across the street um so it is a
19:32
place that it is a great combination of culture of music of
19:39
politics everything is all there and the people are happy open-minded it’s one of those places it
19:45
doesn’t matter what time of the day or night it is i felt safe because it is a community of i think they have like 80
19:52
000 people come into town for this one event but everyone’s there looking for the next big thing they’re open-minded
20:00
and it just really made sense to me that we should start bringing
20:05
the liberty meaning the liberty community to it so this is actually the first year that i’m
20:11
doing it just by myself my company is not anything to do with it usually they pay for me and i’m putting together
20:17
music showcases so i should say that everything that i’m doing here is not a reflection of my company
20:23
um to their credit they have not asked me what i’m doing and i have not told them what i’m doing i said i’m off this week
20:30
i’m doing my own thing this time so um that’s that’s kind of where we are on that so this is my first year kind of
20:36
focusing more on on liberty and my own thing and like i said i was talking to lauren recently i’m looking to make a
20:43
career change and you know southwest southwest is it’s just such a great place for networking meeting people and
20:50
growing a liberty movement that’s awesome by the way i don’t care if michelle obama’s in that car i need
20:55
to cross the street is possibly the most libertarian sentence ever it’s certainly in contention now larry
21:03
uh there are at least minimum six people who are watching this right now who possibly don’t know who
21:08
you are so tell us briefly about your about your how you became liberty how you became a laritarian because liberty
21:15
larry sharp libertarianism has become so prolific that it’s actually i’ve branded it as laritarianism it is an entirely
21:23
different intercollaritarianism it’s an entire different branch of libertarianism so tell us how you how you became a
21:28
libertarian i love it i um i was the uh all i knew was that the the
21:35
establishment wasn’t working so back in the day i was like ross perot
21:40
will save us all i bought into that line some of you know what i’m talking about uh so yes and then i thought it’s okay
21:46
because ralph nader he’ll save us all so i thought that was the answer and if you
21:52
would have asked me what were any of their policies i couldn’t have told you i just knew they weren’t the
21:57
establishment therefore by default they were good it didn’t really matter what their policies were um and i was very
22:03
much disappointed and i was actually going to stop voting by the time 2012 came around i was
22:08
working on my business as a consultant that’s all i was doing and that’s all i really cared about so i
22:14
came to the the idea of libertarianism it wasn’t through most channels i mean
22:20
it wasn’t someone that i heard on tv that brought me here or some government book it actually was a
22:25
business guy by the name of robert ringer some of you who are in the business may know robert ringer he wrote the book looking out for number one uh action
22:32
nothing happens till someone moves and to be or not to be intimidated and he is
22:37
an objectivist he’s not libertarian he’s an objectivist and all about ann rand and he’s like read atlas shrugged it’s
22:43
my bible he’s like that and that’s fine uh i i thought okay he’s my business guru i’ll read the books and when i read
22:49
the books i did not become an objectivist i’m not an objectivist however i did stop thinking
22:55
maybe maybe it’s going to sound crazy but spike maybe government doesn’t have all
23:00
the answers it’s not possible no no no no no no no we’re not we’re not doing that here
23:06
we’re not doing that here we’re not doing it i said baby sweetie don’t be mad at me that’s a baby it’s a
23:12
conversation here it’s a conversation it’s all it is okay conversation don’t throw me off it’s a conversation go
23:17
ahead so i i came up with that concept that maybe that was true just maybe and
23:22
that is what opened me up because what i was already teaching in college and i’m teaching in my in my classes
23:27
and consulting was the idea of post-industrial leadership which is the idea of leading without
23:33
being authoritative right i’m not telling what to do in today’s world i need your arms and legs far less than i
23:40
ever did i need your brain far more than i ever did right so things change i’m gonna make sure i’ve got you doing the
23:46
right thing what does that mean i have to get you on board you need to want to
23:51
do this it is literally business voluntarianism and that’s what i was teaching and i
23:56
didn’t know that i was teaching that so that when i finally in 20 in 2012 heard gary johnson
24:02
speak i could hear him because he was an entrepreneur like me so that was a
24:08
connection that i had with him that i just didn’t have with other politicians so when i heard him speak i said huh
24:15
and it may sound funny i thought gary johnson was a radical when i heard him
24:20
i know i’m far more radical than he is now but that’s where my head was right if you get where my head was i thought
24:26
wow this guy agrees with this whole government may not be the answer for everything crazy thing people are
24:31
talking about so that really got me on board and i came on in 2012 hardcore i
24:37
joined the party in 2012 2013 i voted for gary johnson and judge jim graves my first
24:42
vote for libertarians ever um i supported the campaign i supported our gubernatorial candidate
24:47
in new york in 2014. literally i was giving him money driving him around i was doing debate prep for him when he
24:52
went to go debate in buffalo i was doing all those things and in 2016 i thought you know what my worry was after 2016
25:00
everybody would go away and we’d be broken up and just i’m gonna be there so i wanted to be the vp
25:06
so that when gary johnson left i could you know retain the banner and keep moving forward as a symbol that was my
25:11
goal by the way this is my least favorite part of your story i this is my least favorite part of your story but go
25:16
ahead this is my least favorite you mean what i don’t know this is my least favorite what happens here is my least favorite
25:22
part yes so i’m trying to to be the vp and i lost to bill weld and i lost by 31
25:30
votes not that i’m counting or i’m not counting right lauren stop i’m not counting you’re counting i’m not
25:35
counting it’s 31 votes i just i just happened to remember that number for no reason so i lost my 31 votes and i was
25:41
unable to be the vp and it was not a um johnson sharp ticket it was a johnson
25:46
weld ticket so but i still i cared about gary johnson i still love him and that
25:51
day i literally ran a fundraiser for him that night i went upstairs got some sleep in my hotel came down and raised
25:57
130 000 for the campaign that night so we have to make sure we still move forward i still love gary johnson no
26:03
matter what i will always love gary johnson so in any case then i realized okay i can’t be the vp what should i do i decided to
26:10
run for governor of new york in 2018. um got enough votes that i we got ballot access
26:17
for the first time ever in new york state we raised half a million dollars um in the campaign the most we had ever
26:23
run we ran the longest libertarian campaign ever it was a year and three or four months um and we raised the most
26:29
money libertarian campaigns have run except for president non-presidential election we raised the most money that
26:34
we’ve ever run so it was a lot of good stuff we got ballot access and the goal that i’ve always been saying is top of
26:40
the t gets press bottom the ticket has chance of winning when you combine those two you get a
26:45
whole lot of victories yeah so i practiced what i preached and the year after in 2019 i crossed the state again
26:52
supporting local candidates bringing them press and we got 107 victories in new york state we went from
26:58
zero libertarians awesome to 107 in two years and then new york state said
27:05
no that’s that’s not gonna work that is so not gonna work so we’re gonna in the budget write an
27:12
item that says you are no longer a party larry sharp thanks but no thanks you need to get out of here and they got rid
27:18
of our ballot access and we lost everything with the stroke of a pen in new york state so now i’m at it again i am insane i’m
27:26
at it again and just so you guys know how hard it is when i first had to run i had to get 15 000 signatures in the
27:32
course of 12 weeks and then get 50 000 votes or more in the election
27:38
now they took away our ballot access and that made it harder for us to get on now i have to get 45 000 signatures
27:47
in half the time in six weeks so they tripled the signatures and half the time
27:53
and then they triple the amount i have to get i’ve got 130 000 votes now so they increase the amount of votes i
27:59
have to get the amount of you have to get and shorten the time and for some reason i’m still doing this
28:05
i i don’t maybe i am insane perhaps but i’m doing it again so i hope i gave you the story you wanted to hear larry now
28:11
that i’m a free agent i’m gonna come support you my friend because this is this is a fight worth fighting and so
28:17
appreciate you yes we have to we have to absolutely by the way i found a photo of
28:22
what the world would be like if you had been gary’s vice presidential nominee instead of bill weld um
28:28
this is also this is also what new york will look like after you are elected governor so it’s it’s 100 accurate it’s
28:36
a flexible photo there’s a many it’s all related to larry this is a larry photo i don’t know if you
28:42
notice the guy walking the dog anyway so uh let’s talk about so here is we’re doing something very exciting
28:48
together and i i want to give a little bit of backstory here when i was first approached by lauren when when lauren
28:54
reached out to my team about me speaking being at south by southwest i my first thought was i don’t care what you say
29:01
i’m not releasing my mixtape and i it showed i knew i knew almost not all i knew about south
29:07
by southwest was the the music aspect i knew there was like something with speakers like sort of like a ted talk
29:13
type of thing but i didn’t know much about it so when i heard south by southwest i’m like i am not a good i
29:18
don’t i mean i can be a good hype man for for larry sure um i don’t know if
29:23
larry has bars but i guess we’re all about to find out and uh turns out you’re the greatest rapper of all time
29:28
but uh what i found out about south by southwest is that you know originally it
29:34
was founded in the 80s started as a music festival it has grown over time to incorporate
29:39
topics like uh tech and film and music and education and uh they had uh what
29:45
was called government and politics now it’s called uh civic discussion which is what we’re a part of it uh they’re
29:51
expecting over and fifty thousand attendees uh or well over a hundred thousand um and uh by the way for those
29:59
who are anywhere near austin texas uh not too late to sign up for south by southwest come on in and if you are
30:04
already planning on attending south by southwest uh come check out our uh our uh panel uh which is titled breaking the
30:11
duopoly can third parties prevail um and i i just uh i guess we can start with
30:17
lauren or really with whomever here but i guess lauren who kind of put again with all of this what is the uh
30:24
what no go ahead lauren i was gonna say spike i think you highlighted probably some confusion
30:30
within the liberty movement about south by southwest the conference and why it’s important for the liberty movement
30:37
if people associate it with a music festival or a film festival it might seem like nice to have instead of a need
30:45
to have right so i think you really hit the nail on the head and understanding our market
30:51
and bringing that message outside of it i will share what i found to be a fairly
30:57
insular movement where we create little echo chambers and we talk to each other and we talk to
31:02
ourselves and we talk to our friends by bringing this panel breaking the
31:07
duopoly to south by southwest we are stepping far outside the libertarian
31:13
comfort zone yes and i really
31:19
i really want to give credit to joanna because it is a difficult conference to
31:24
get into you know just like just like anything elite or media connected
31:30
you have to know someone that knows someone and thankfully i knew people on the tech side on the venture capital side joanna new people on the music side
31:37
and live events so joanna it was an uphill battle getting this panel wasn’t it
31:43
it is um you actually generally have to start pitching panels to them in august the
31:49
previous year um and they of course have hoops you
31:54
have to jump through sometimes they are they are not fun but you know private entity they put up the
31:59
hoops we choose if we want to jump through them private property yes yeah exactly so there were definitely
32:06
some sometimes that we were getting frustrated going through laura and i had just really met and started connecting
32:12
and as soon as i myself by devotee and so as soon as i realized that she she
32:18
knew how brilliant this this whole event was we kind of had made fast friends and um when we were talking about what we
32:24
can do i we need to go to south by southwest let’s let’s do something here and then
32:29
lauren introduced me of course to both of you guys as well as a myriad of other wonderful people
32:36
but um yeah it’s we had to do a lot and we only finally got the the approval tweaking the panel
32:43
tweaking who’s gonna get it tweaking exactly what we were gonna call it um and they gave us the approval and um i’m
32:50
i’m really excited i’ve been going to southern southwest for i think 11 years solid now and it’s been a bucket list
32:56
item of mine honestly to to speak there to be on a panel um as much as i’ve been going there for
33:02
music for years i finally gonna be speaking on a panel and it’s not even about music but you
33:07
know that’s how life works that i’m really excited that we have the opportunity to do that and to talk
33:13
liberty to people and i think oftentimes what i have experienced
33:20
in the music industry and of course there will be a lot of music people there is they’re not willing to talk
33:25
about liberty yet they’re not willing to say come out and say i’m on your side
33:32
i’ve got i’ve got a list of musicians i’m obviously not going to name them but they tell me when i meet them and like
33:38
hey i like what you’re saying on social media don’t tell anyone exactly of course you guys um i’m sure
33:45
have heard about the whole thing that happened with winston marshall of mumford and sons and
33:51
you know there there’s a lot i actually know some of the guys in the band and um a
33:56
lot of the circles they’re in and i know a lot of those guys feel the same way um the nice new guys
34:02
guys girls whoever um but there they haven’t been as brave as winston and speaking out
34:09
um and i don’t blame them i’m certainly not not criticizing anyone but i i know from personal experience there are a lot
34:15
of people at stuff for southwest that are listening whether they’re willing to come out and join us yet or not we need to keep
34:22
feeding them what they want to hear joanna i think you mentioned two things that are of interest that the audience
34:28
will want to know as well the first i i think will circle back to this is what what can people expect at
34:34
south bio why is it important you mentioned that so many new ideas are shared
34:39
you know guys facebook launched at south by southwest period facebook launched at south by
34:46
southwest twitter launched at south by southwest airbnb launched at south by southwest
34:53
when facebook did the rebrand of meta it was supposed to be at south by southwest even though it was virtual
35:00
but when you think about the major media platforms specifically the tech enabled platforms
35:07
that are making this kind of broadcast possible south by is where they launch
35:12
south by is where they get new ideas south by is where they engage with their stakeholders
35:18
to understand what are people looking for now how can we serve our audience and our
35:23
customers better we want all of those major platforms those players in the space and the new
35:29
and up and coming to recognize there is a liberty audience hungry to be served
35:37
and joanna i’d say your second point there was the challenge with the word libertarian
35:45
and why we have really approached this at you know framing the event as a liberty live
35:51
series as opposed to a libertarian event using the word liberty intentionally
35:58
and which is why i am being careful to promote independent candidates because people are much more
36:05
willing to say oh yeah i’m an independent you know when we look at that bell curve
36:11
of early adopters and innovation people who have jumped the gun and said yes i’m libertarian
36:18
they’re still on this kind of low slope of the bell curve whereas we will be able to reach so many more a broader
36:24
audience if we don’t force them into that box if i do want to interrupt real quick and
36:32
make it and to to be fair there is somebody else on our panel at south by southwest her name her name is nalini
36:38
stamp and she is with the workers family party so i’m i do want to you know she’s not
36:46
in in the liberty sphere as we are but she is um south by southwest suggested
36:52
that we bring someone else in for a more diverse panel and it was uh let me
36:57
let me touch that if i could for a second also sure right i’m i’m running for office in
37:02
in new york i didn’t say what party i was running under yep why because i’m running under three
37:08
parties i’m running as a libertarian i’m also running as a forward party which is
37:13
many of you know the andrew yang’s party and also looking for the unite line too which is another from america looking
37:19
for their line so i’m looking at three lines i’m running in to create an actual coalition is what i’ve been talking about forever the the liberty movement
37:27
is bigger than the libertarian party obviously absolutely but the liberty libertarian movement
37:33
right is is i think the only way to save america i know it sounds hyperbolic but i honestly believe it if you see what’s
37:39
happening in our politics now which is why i know there’ll be political people there everyone’s jumping on one side or the
37:44
other we politicize everything everything that happens politicize so if i decide i’m gonna drink pepsi today
37:50
someone goes there’s larry republican or democrat oh he’s a democrat so pepsi is for democrats and coke is for republic
37:56
just done that’s how it works larry’s a republican then coke is for republic whatever it doesn’t matter it’s what whatever i am we now politicize that
38:03
doesn’t really matter what it is so the liberty movement is the only movement that says
38:08
you can be who you want to be but you don’t have to convert you just have to say i’m not going to
38:14
force my views and others and the music industry is actually naturally this way
38:20
the music industry is all about people going their own way doing their own thing trying to be the new cool thing
38:26
and letting certain people watch or listen and certainly say that’s dumb that’s stupid i don’t like it so it
38:32
they’re kind of already with us if that makes any sense they just don’t know it they tended to be left-leaning because
38:39
in the past the left tended to be a lot more open to that in the past so they
38:44
have a history of being more left-leaning because of that openness to cultural changes and such those days
38:50
have changed now neither side when it comes up right is actually very open at all both sides say follow my rules or i’m
38:58
mad at you the libertarian or the liberty movement is the only movement that says do you man it’s all good do
39:04
you and i think that’s where we’re going to fit in very well we are the peacemakers we are the people who can
39:10
create a coalition i’ve i’ve tried to prove that with how i’m running we’re the only ones who can create coalitions
39:15
you can’t get anybody else to make that coalition only we can so i think we will fit perfectly
39:20
that’s an excellent point as i was saying about nalini too i mean they are workers family party are the
39:27
people that kind of supported the bernie sanders elizabeth warren the aoc the squad um so if you really delve into
39:34
topics um it issues we’ve got a lot of differences from her and her group but
39:41
our panel’s not about those differences our panel is about the need for a third party so i’m really excited especially
39:49
larry because you’re in new york she’s talking the work effect workers family party out of new york they do the same
39:54
thing whereas they have their own ballot line and of course they’re supporting democrats that that support their views
40:01
but um when i spoke to her and someone else in the worker’s family party we had so we were talking to each other said
40:07
yes yes yes that’s right because it was all no matter what we think about we’re
40:12
not being represented the people are not being represented we are getting pushed aside and that’s really
40:20
the first step before we even try and worry about convincing people whether they’re going to vote libertarian or
40:26
liberty or independent is to open their eyes and see that the two major parties just aren’t representing them as they
40:33
should be and what can we do what are the ways that a third party might be
40:38
able to to get known and i’m really excited to have you talk to people about
40:43
you know running with the forward party and different people like that yeah i i think that’s a i’m glad you
40:50
said that i think the coalition’s everything yeah there there’s something inherently anti-authoritarian for people that are
40:56
running outside of the duopoly right they’re they’re recognizing even if our policies are wildly different even if we
41:02
as libertarians would say well actually this thing would be kind of authoritarian if you listen to green
41:08
party uh working families party constitution party uh even dsa a lot of
41:13
these parties even if we disagree on the means by which we get there there is sort of this
41:20
undercurrent belief among all of them that this way’s not working and that we shouldn’t be under control and that’s
41:27
something that’s very inherently anti-authoritarian within the third party and an independent crowd is
41:33
that we don’t want to be told you have to be either team red or team blue we recognize that this whole thing is a
41:39
scam we don’t want you to rob us blind anymore we want to have more choices and that is inherently liberty oriented even
41:45
if we they don’t call themselves libertarian even if their goals are or even if their means aren’t explicitly
41:51
libertarian their goals are obviously very liberty-minded and and to joanna’s point that is very true and to larry’s
41:58
point as well uh really all of your points uh this has been something that’s been no only my points only mine
42:05
only larry made this point it’s correct this is the world we could have had if everyone else had made this
42:11
point but only larry made it what were you guys thinking this is also the world if the working
42:16
families party endorses larry but that’s a whole we’ll talk about that later um but i’ll bring a print out of that to
42:22
south by and say listen i just want to show you something i’m not saying you should endorse larry
42:28
i’m just saying that you could look at that grass i mean wow yeah so uh no the point you bring up though is we
42:35
bring up one common thing which i call believe it or not the bro program it came with the bro program that’s bro bro
42:41
b stands for easier ballot access r stands for ranked choice voting
42:46
and o stands for open primaries right these th this is the the group
42:51
this program all third parties like we’re on board larry sharp’s talking this i’m in let’s
42:58
do this those are the three changes systemically that we could change to actually allow
43:05
all the third parties to come in whether you’re green or working families libertarian forward it doesn’t matter we
43:11
all want that that’s the uniting piece and that’s what the two br the two established parties do not want
43:17
we’re gonna have to work on that acronym because you almost lost me at bro code but i love what to stand for i love what
43:23
it stands for maybe we’ll switch out like election reform and get an e in there but 110
43:30
how are we breaking the duopoly there we go we’ll be i thought i’m going rob but i thought i don’t want to rob you
43:36
no i thought bro was better right an orb sounded like we’re like going to rule the world was it with a magical orb so i
43:42
thought the best i could do is come on bro that’s the best i can come up with so that’s why if you make it if you make
43:48
it rob and then add electoral reform then it’s it’s robe noob that’s true it
43:53
is robe i don’t know that that’s markedly better but it’s another one i was like how did
43:58
you spin that like it’s rememberable to have larry come out in a robe and say i want to show you
44:05
what’s in this robe no
44:13
so speaking of i think we’re going back to bro yes we might be going back to bro or bro but
44:20
with an e at the end and the e is silent it’s like bro so and it has a little umlaut on the e
44:27
we could do a whole thing um so no i like it um so one thing about south
44:32
by southwest is this is also very and we talk about this all the time libertarians are like cartman in that
44:38
south part episode where he’s a teacher he goes i have to reach these kids this is us all the time how do we bring more
44:44
young people into the movement and south by southwest is very much a youth organized or youth oriented event they
44:52
actually plan the dates to coincide with spring break at texas university um so
44:58
what what do you think are some of the main points we can be making to younger voters go ahead
45:04
i gotta pause on that uh-oh yes it’s the university of texas i knew i knew the
45:10
way you acted i knew this would be some kind of texas sports and or academia
45:16
i’ve been
45:22
i could see the anger and i knew because i’m the guy who showed up in fort worth at a campaign event was told it was
45:28
dallas said dallas texas it got dead silence yeah no because how dare i think
45:35
that the event that’s five minutes from my dallas hotel could possibly still be
45:40
in dallas so okay so i’m sorry
45:49
it coincides with spring break at the university of texas sorry well there you
45:55
go and i’ll actually you know give a little bit of additional background there i went to ut for both
46:00
undergrad and graduate school and then i’ve taught there off and on the thought process was actually so the
46:07
students would be gone spike because they did not want to target
46:12
college students they wanted to target investors they wanted to target international companies they wanted to
46:19
target you know east coast west coast so the idea wasn’t to attract college-age students who were out on
46:25
spring break the goal was to get them the out of town and then invite everyone else in but that backfired
46:32
back there a little bit yes hey kids get over there we’re gonna have a music festival for the adults
46:39
don’t come over today music festival don’t go to our music festival please okay joanna when you think about you know the
46:46
demographics and what we typically see at south by you know how would you characterize that because it really runs
46:52
the gamut it really does um i mean there’s i’m going to say
46:58
the actual attendance figures there’s people represented from over 100 different countries um and with my music international music
47:05
background that’s the reason that i fell in love with it because it allows bands
47:11
musicians to come over from that aren’t established yet it’s oftentimes emerging
47:16
musicians emerging um music just like we talk about emerging ideas
47:22
ones that would never normally be able to come over and be in the states so
47:27
it’s the being able to go out there and like meet fans from egypt and nigeria
47:34
and australia is always whoever represented it is very cosmopolitan there are
47:40
people from all sorts of of backgrounds of countries
47:46
of ideas it is very it’s become it did start out music has become much more
47:51
heavily tech oriented because of course silicon valley is where all the money comes from um
47:57
and there’s been a lot of controversy with south by southwest as the big companies come and take it over
48:03
with all their corporate selling yeah exactly so that’s that’s always a consideration
48:09
but um yeah it still does appeal in general to to younger people and i
48:15
guess when you look at myself younger spirits um so people that that go that want to
48:22
have fun i i don’t see it’s just the true diversity right because it doesn’t
48:28
really matter how old somebody is it’s when you’re all there we’re all we’re not really looking at
48:36
any of those individual characteristics it’s just people coming together
48:41
wanting to see what’s new wanting to meet each other wanting to hear each other
48:46
it really is it’s in fact my husband takes my children to disney world um quite often when i go
48:52
his family live his parents live in florida and so i always make a big deal i was like yeah
48:58
this is disneyland for me they’re going to disney world but this is disney world for me coming to south by southwest
49:04
joanne if you had to summarize the audience you know would you say it’s people with an open mind yes
49:12
yeah looking for new things looking for new ideas looking for new things which is
49:18
our audience guys that’s awesome maybe that road thing is a good idea after all all right there is
49:26
wait what’s this guy doing with a robe let’s go see that we’ll take a break from the music this might work leaving
49:31
it’s a beautiful we’ll do what we got to do here we got to do it listen sex sells larry and and you might you
49:38
might be our guy for that uh so it’s but this is something we’ve been on a regular basis because uh
49:44
younger people tend to be typically kind of naturally anti-authoritarian
49:50
they haven’t quite been beaten down by life yet and they’re and usually and they are more likely to say no you know
49:57
that doesn’t make sense why you know you need to explain that to me also typically and again this is generally
50:02
speaking the whole neuroplasticity thing younger people tend to be a little bit more open-minded on new uh ideas
50:08
especially like belief systems cultural ideas and things like that so this seems like our net and and like joanna said to
50:15
her point the young at heart are probably also in a similar level of neuroplasticity where they also are open
50:22
to these ideas so it’s not just a numerical age thing it’s more being tied to being open-minded and being at an
50:29
event explicitly to see what are the new things not just in music but in tech in
50:35
culture and in you know how they’re voting potentially so i think it’s incredible what we’re going to be doing um now this is it’s it’s hard to
50:43
underestimate just or overestimate just how impactful this is this brings in
50:49
super bowl numbers for austin um uh where’s the number uh in 2019 before
50:55
before covid and i’m assuming the numbers are going to be this big or bigger uh for this year it brought in
51:01
over 350 million dollars just into the austin economy this is a huge huge event
51:07
it cannot be overstated how big this is what we’re doing well into your point about bringing in
51:14
money to the economy spike these are the people that we want to be talking to because they understand how
51:19
money moves and how money impacts new ideas and movement there you know joanna has really it leaned
51:26
into the music side i’ve always been on venture capital panels and these are the people that we
51:31
want to talk to about how they can make an investment and not just with their money but with their votes how can they
51:37
make an investment with the resources necessary to get a new idea off the ground
51:42
if that’s gathering support gathering votes gathering dollars we want to be talking to these audiences
51:50
yeah these are these are the people that we need to be talking to especially for larry because larry needs to raise money
51:56
for his gubernatorial campaign this is the official make it happen i can’t get flying cars without it
52:02
you’re right flying cars don’t run on dreams i’d love to highlight for people you know if they
52:09
are in texas if they are in the austin area if they want to get a little liberty but they might not have spent
52:15
the thousand plus dollars on a south by badge we will be out and about we i believe
52:21
are going to be kind of set up at the midwest house so south by southwest is known for
52:27
having kind of areas around the city known as houses so there’s funded house or startup house or
52:34
music house or branded houses as well you can go to facebook house we’re going to be going to midwest house
52:42
along with my friends from media tech ventures so again this is our audience
52:48
media tech entrepreneurs new ideas and for joanna
52:54
we’re going to be going during their live music presentation so if people are interested in getting a
53:00
little bit of liberty but they might not have purchased a badge they can check out where where we’re
53:05
gonna be we’ll update the new website at libertylive.us
53:11
and larry and spike i think that we’re going to do some amazing you know interviews we’re going to talk
53:16
to some people on the street i can’t wait to get you all talking i can’t wait there’s no flying car house
53:23
not here you haven’t been elected yet
53:31
there’s a tesla house so we’ll we’ll try to talk to elon yeah i’m staying like five minutes from the
53:38
elon’s new factory oh there we go oh see this is perfect larry sharp
53:43
governor new gut newly newly crowned i guess that’s probably what they do is crown them there it’s new york they do crowds that’s correct they do it’s like
53:49
a sword on the shoulder yeah larry sharp new crown newly crowned governor of new york announced his flying car factory in
53:57
uh i i don’t uh binghamton uh and so uh we could use it i like binghamton good
54:03
idea yes binghamton could use the money right so no that’s coming um so so yes
54:08
if you if you haven’t uh you’re not in a position to get the south by southwest badge uh you can see us at the midwest
54:15
house and if you go to libertylive.us uh you can get more information uh that will be updated on how you can see us
54:21
there if you are at south by southwest uh we will be on march 13th which is
54:27
sunday at 2 30 p.m local time uh we will be at the hilton austin downtown in
54:33
salon c and our panel is called breaking the duopoly can third parties prevail
54:39
spoiler alert yes they can prevail i added that last part
54:45
but they don’t even have to come they don’t even have nobody listening to this
54:51
okay edit this out or they won’t show what do you think okay this was live but i will edit this part out you’re not
54:56
gonna believe if we can prevail can we prevail i don’t know we don’t know you’re gonna
55:02
have to find out who knows we’re gonna find out what needs to be taught yes south by southwest if you were going
55:09

up one day and this is in your backyard uh you will know that uh both larry sharpe has one
56:05
along with that at the panel i think you’re also going to be dropping some hot information about
56:11
the advocates for self-government i will your bro partners or the rogue partners
56:17
what whatever that plays out to be rank the vote and all of the amazing
56:22
advocacy organizations that you are working to help promote correct the the you were teasing me about the
56:28
laritarians but you’re right and the reason why i support and i’m behind and i completely are happy to rep the
56:35
advocates for for self government is because that’s how someone goes from laritarian to libertarian there’s got to
56:41
be a place that people can go to test themselves and see where their mindsets are and think differently the
56:48
advocates.org if i can give a plug the advocates.org is where you go to take the world’s smallest quiz to take
56:53
quizzes on things like what do you think about police accountability what do you think about that would be my foreign policy issues what do you think about
57:00
these how about elections what do you think about that and then where does your head go on these things that and
57:05
also another organization they work with which is literally libertarianism.com
57:10
libertarians.com talks about the happiness features based upon libertarianism that’s not only about
57:16
liberty but it’s actually about happiness and liberty is the way to happiness
57:21
exactly exactly and so these are the kinds of things that we will be talking about on the panel um and
57:29
i wanna oh hold on i lost everyone there we are uh so one last thing before we
57:34
get into final thoughts um what is your
57:39
in your mind’s eye we’re in front of people and we’re and and don’t don’t do the spoiler alert
57:46
because we don’t allow that on the show anymore but that ended minutes ago but what is your main
57:53
takeaway of what you want to make sure this audience knows when they walk out that door besides the fact that they
57:58
should donate to larry sharp’s campaign for governor and liberty live
58:04
larry what’s your takeaway sorry
58:11
i i will say that we hope the audience continues to stay engaged and find more ways to bring the liberty
58:18
movement to the mainstream chances are there are major conferences and events
58:24
and main stage opportunities where you think there should be a liberty presence
58:29
we want to know how can we help advocate to get more liberty voices on main c
58:35
main stream stages yeah i will be able to say that by the time we get there on sunday
58:42
if you want to help us get on a mainstream stage in your area drop us a
58:47
line libertylive.you we want to know how we can help get on those conference floors get in the
58:54
booths and get at the podium on the mic in your area absolutely absolutely my my main
59:01
takeaway is i want people to at least think that there is a
59:07
possibility because i think we all hear the whole wasted vote fallacy um that
59:14
there’s just no point not worth it there’s no possible way your head’s in the clouds
59:19
i just want people to think twice to think hey maybe just maybe there really is a way
59:28
that third parties can get there it’s an uphill climb i know that we all know that but it’s possible
59:35
and that’s what i want people to come away with awesome i’m similar to what joanna says
59:41
i just want people to actually realize that sticking with the two-party system
59:48
doesn’t work just understand that right now in our current world
59:53
victory is seen as the other hurting not as me winning
59:58
so as long as i make the other person hurt that is my victory whether my life
1:00:04
is better or worse is irrelevant as long as the other loses so we’re voting against or defensively
1:00:11
not for or affirmatively and i would like people to think that they should stop doing that that remember for
1:00:17
whoever’s watching and listening right remember bush got us obama obama got us trump
1:00:24
trump got us biden who’s winning i don’t see anybody winning on this one right
1:00:30
the worse you do is maybe you delay your your guy
1:00:35
or gal for four or eight years maybe but that’s about it
1:00:40
this isn’t working if they get that and they go one step further with what joanna says and then go once to brother
1:00:46
what lauren says oh killing it we’re killing it absolutely it’s you know
1:00:51
i we we’ve all heard you know well i don’t want to waste my vote wasting your vote is voting for the exact people who
1:00:57
created this mess and are making it worse and the vain hope that they’ll somehow either fix it or uh or just stop
1:01:05
making it worse and and throwing your vote away is voting for the people whose
1:01:10
lies you like better than the people whose lies you don’t really like as much knowing that they’re lies but just
1:01:15
picking the ones that sound the best to you and to the and to the point of we can’t win we do win uh even just in the
1:01:22
libertarian party and other other parties as well there are hundreds of elected officials uh and yes they are
1:01:28
typically at the local level but they’re getting elected there’s nothing magically different between getting
1:01:33
elected at the local level and getting elected at the higher level the only difference is uh access to funding uh
1:01:40
and also just getting over the the uh head space that many people have about whether they can
1:01:46
get elected in the first place and it’s these types of things that we are doing that can help to accomplish that it’s
1:01:52
also things like we were talking about ballot access reform um ranked choice voting um electoral reform um the uh um
1:02:00
open primaries yeah these are all really good things which is why i am announcing right now
1:02:06
in this moment uh the uh launch of uh something i just came up with myself a very exciting initiative that i’m
1:02:12
calling bro and bro will be [Laughter] i was gonna save this for south by
1:02:18
southwest but i just feel very excited about it do it brother do it let it go let it go bro is you know if you woke up today and
1:02:25
said my gosh spike i’m sick of voting republican or democrat but that’s all i can do right well folks bro will fix all
1:02:32
of this imagine the electoral equivalent of larry sharp and a robe that’s what we’re doing and go bro
1:02:39
go bro go bro or go broke
1:02:45
