And Michael and I.
Look at the world and completely different ways we live -- -- a completely different ways and we believe the country should be run in different to two completely different ways and we decide on the road trip an interview Americans about exactly what is going wrong and right in America.

Around -- on the table.
I was surprised how few people want to identify themselves as either Republicans or Democrats most people just say you know why I'm I don't know that -- either or.
I care about my country care about my family care remic kids but that the political parties themselves sort of make me.
Uncomfortable to put put putting that kind of label -- I don't know if it's because the parties have gotten so extreme that people don't want to identify themselves as being that extreme.
But they're very uncomfortable talking about themselves in terms of political affiliation and their -- they're much more interested in the in in the smaller issues that they believe -- -- wonder one.

I think term I think people are comfortable talking about their own economic situation and the hopes that they have to themselves and not so comfortable.
Pledging allegiance to any individual political party.
