The convention is finally over the president asked us to rally around a set goals for America.
He says he hasn't she mobile plan could lead to new jobs more opportunity to rebuild the economy.
So you -- it.
What is what does that mean for those of us who believe in free markets and free people.
And what -- our audience think about what.
That's our show tonight.
-- told her we heard two sales pitches though.
Both seemed pretty similar both parties imply.
Government's got the answers elect me we'll make your life better.
Really -- what do people who care about liberty and the dignity of the individual.
Think about what the politicians propose.
Well the Stossel shows and news special correspondent candy has been at the convention Kennedy.
You've been there all week anything any thing you -- light.
Yeah there are a couple things that I liked here and -- and how are you John good to -- Not one I like the veterans Betty I really thought that was another Republican capitalized on it was emotional it was poignant.
It was very effective -- also had a subtle endorsement from Tom Hanks.
That was more effective -- -- put in the empty chair.
I really like that Michelle Obama's dress -- speech was quite nice was also emotional and the moment to Gabby Giffords came out on stage.
It was -- lips.
It was incredible and people were amazed at what she has been able to do with the rehabilitation they're very -- And on the negative side.
Would -- have to.
-- how long do we have the unfunded entitlements the promise of more big government.
It's really more the same that we heard in Tampa and government is going to solve.
All of your problems it doesn't matter how we pay -- choice is a dirty word to both parties and it's something they -- very selectively.
And I find that personally offensive.
And we found that all over the place.
So it we will come back to that theme and more with you Kennedy thank you we'll be back -- -- -- later.
Also with an -- that she did with the libertarian presidential candidate.
Now first though what do others who love free markets and free people think about what we heard we're joined by mark Maclin who founded the biggest Tea Party group now he runs.
A group called citizens for self governance.
-- heat from the independent women's forum.
And nick Gillespie from the wonderful reason TV so mark you first you would expire by and the speech.
I wouldn't say I was inspired him in -- thing and what we know he's a good speech -- we we saw that four years ago we've seen a lot in between so we know he was more better than Romney.
He he's excellent at the podium he is a plus and then you frying in the audience people some people -- this stuff that you know there was actually some substance there were things like prohibit the biggest thing I liked was he said that we should drill for more natural gas and and he promoted the use of natural gas.
That's one of our most abundant resources so I was glad he brought that up and hopefully he'll follow through in and really frees up and ask were we develop a hundred -- supply of natural gas.
Well I thought he's resisted that.
What generally has been very unfavorable towards domestic energy production he's been promoting overseas energy production so hopefully we see change.
I'm not hopeful round.
Handling what you like anything.
I like to -- he mentioned the debt he said.
He wants to pay down the debt he said he -- is eager to work with the bipartisan debt commission so.
We know that he knows that it's they -- he knows that there's sixteen million dollars in debt.
Which we didn't hear talked about a lot earlier in the week at the DNC so.
-- happy at least to hear him acknowledge it I'm curious what his plan would look like to reduce the debt because.
So far we haven't seen him do anything in that direction toward real tax rich people.
Right but if you do the arithmetic that's not enough.
-- You know I like that he called that the GOP on being -- And their plans for the next four years they you know -- exactly he could be practicing that talking to a mirror of course.
But I'd like yeah.
Idea you know I actually like the idea that he attacked Romney for his privilege when he -- -- likewise -- -- you know if you need money for college and slash your parents -- -- got a couple big -- Paul Bryant.
This is about the -- system -- petty differences the Republicans and the Democrats are not that different and so at least if politics can't be substantive.
Let it be entertaining.
Not that different because they're all from privilege that's right.
Though -- are all in a place of privilege I mean this is a race at least between Romney and Obama at this point it's millionaire vs multi million.
I feel a little bit unspoken for a -- -- What what struck me is this implication of magical thinking that they will just make this stuff happened.
We can't help build big factories and small business -- and help them double their exports.
And if we choose this path create a million new manufacturing job.
The you know for me one of the things that is striking about this -- you know smallness something because if it is magic -- -- -- not two million jobs.
-- a triple exports.
You know as long as work.
Just pulling stuff out of thin air are dark parts of her body.
Let's go hog -- And and why the assumption that they're gonna do what I assume if they get out of the way exports.
Would be likely to increase the only way they can help but it -- they're gonna subsidize special industries which will then export they will micromanage the economy.
-- -- they're gonna pick winners and losers and and this is what both parties do they both talking about the things that government's gonna do.
Neither of them is talking about government getting out of the way which is what both of them should be talking about.
Both parties say.
We're gonna pick of the Republican so they're gonna pick winners and they say they're going to create Mitt Romney says specifically he's going to treat twelve million jobs government does not create jobs private industry creates jobs.
Romney is ahead I don't -- he's creating twelve million voters.
-- they're gonna raise the the platform it's just a more free stuff for everybody we're gonna raise the minimum wage index it to inflation.
Obviously the president would like it if the economy would improve especially right now if possible.
But he didn't spell out forests and a speech what I wanted to hear it but I didn't hear.
Was how the next four years.
We're going to be any different he talked about he's a changed man he's the president but he didn't talk about what approach he would change he to you mentioned -- make mistakes.
But didn't elaborate and didn't say what -- we tanked.
But he's very when Tony and which is also having.
What are the things I've found particularly distressing about the speech because it wasn't about substance it really was about how the presidency -- -- -- to liken himself as a Lincoln.
You know he -- like like it on down nominees some -- all the time but you know he's not like Lincoln and we're not facing the civil war.
It would be nice to be reassured that the president isn't becoming totally -- -- I have call.
That he is part of American history we know I mean he had put himself in old presidential biographies on the White House web site.
Likening himself to everybody you know from George Washington to -- minutes -- the clear that we gave the way I mean you know you take the credit you take the blame I think.
But I I've found in this speech there were many moments that were kind of distressing from my kind of psychological.
I think it's a speech that Americans will.
I heard from the Democrats is that in America and the privileged.
Profit at the expense of everyone else.
By the system is rigged against them.
And here's the painful part.
We believe me.
That we're all in this together there's a far better philosophy.
Then your on your home.
-- And I think that sell us this thank you were in this together -- -- We libertarians say mostly you're on your own.
Private charities will help you if you need help.
People say to me that's -- The reality is America we have a culture of being in it together if we choose to be in it together and mostly Americans -- -- -- the most charitable culture -- literally in the world.
But we don't like government here we we give more money than anybody else he used to be thousands of mutual aid societies before government created all this government charity we just don't want government forcing us telling us how to be in it together essentially taking our money giving it to other people what they don't the politicians like is the -- force they just say were all -- together.
And that appeals -- people -- you know it's also the head and the Republicans do this to it's it's a fundamentally false choice it's not you're either in it all together and let's all make a decision here John this -- in your show anymore.
We're gonna decide 'cause we're all in it together let's get the audience in here.
Or your aisle you're on -- on you -- writing you got to produce and you got a solid now I mean there's this is a fundamentally false choice where I think the Democratic National Convention.
Had a very strong kind of motif going through it is that idea that the system is rigged.
And broken and that appeals to people because we always we all are angry about some thing.
And I think that that appeals the Republicans do that a different women -- -- -- Elizabeth Warren.
Cheated and used affirmative action to get a -- -- Barack Obama got into Colombia because -- that the system is rigged against me.
You know vice Versa and and that is actually a really powerful dimension in American politics and it's interesting to see both of both parties using that.
Against one another even though it's this.
There are -- -- big government should step in and fix it rather than say hey where we voluntarily came to the studio to make the steamy broccoli and the reason that stuff sells is because regardless of where you follow on the political spectrum.
People do get the feeling that the little guy is getting cheated he's getting trounced on he doesn't have opportunities in America today that he batting in previous decade.
That feeling excelled of course but the solution.
Is to empower the big government and the big businesses to practice cronyism together that's the opposite of the solution that's making the problem worse.
This -- to take -- back to the minimum wage you know it's if you wanted to room poor people.
The best thing you can do is raise the minimum wage because all it does his science but it offers them a job that's right good -- people out of the market -- -- -- -- -- close to middle class people more middle class people get minimum wage shops and upper class people.
-- low wage people it's -- you know it's it's horrible.
But it sells it sounds like helping the poor and another thing that -- because they used an eighteen times and got big applause.
Osama bin Laden's dead GM is alive.
People the audience Snickers about I don't know I think America thinks.
The American auto industry was saved jobs were -- we have cars he wouldn't have cars otherwise.
What we wouldn't have American cars the you know it are obviously against you were saying that also -- -- -- the show via video is dead.
You know Oldsmobile was dead Saturn instead -- parts of General Motors are dead and the rest of the carcass will be in bankruptcy again I mean this is.
It shows I think what Marcus -- you know -- Obama is a blow pretty good -- a rationing is a good speech giver.
But what -- -- idiotic statement when you think about a for Wallace followed bin Laden is dead you know hallelujah.
I hope he's been known to have organized converse that first half there where he's an area that's you know that's GM is alive -- -- -- -- for now it has cost.
Billions of dollars to taxpayers and we're still on the hook the stock market as the stock continues to decline.
There is no now we're auto about thirty billion and we don't know where the money might have going deterrent.
You wanted to and the reality is it was crony capitalism at its worst it was just run by the government so you've got a situation where.
Thousands of dealers were shut down based on political decisions.
Essentially Barack Obama did what he says being shouldn't do they reorganize the company they laid people off.
You know that's what you do in a restructuring and throw away as India they -- they and they ignored though the difference is being doesn't legally.
The administration ignored the rule of law violated bankruptcy -- screw the bond holders.
The same time -- -- -- did acknowledging his speech that there are some things that government can't do my apple this is progress but he never said anything about what government should or shouldn't do.
He just said there are some things government can't do so the pregnant rest of the speech is within government and all -- all -- -- if you look at his record in this policy stance it's clear that that's not really what he believes that's not really his philosophy.
Will come back to you coming up -- America's biggest problem is that we are going wrong.
Sixteen trillion dollars in debt that means the politicians steal from my kids to splurge now -- Watch for the Democrats say they'll do about that.
Last week still it seemed every speaker talked about how they or someone in their family grew up poor.
My mom worked the phones -- -- so we can hang on to our house.
But it wasn't easy for us to make it.
For a while we were on food stamps.
My grandmother spent her whole life working hasn't made a -- -- -- babysitters.
Brock was raised by a single mom who struggle to pay the bills.
Some market in in a way in this sounds good for opportunity the Democrats -- knowledge and we have a mobile society people -- -- They're acknowledging have been a lot of cases actually -- I mean if you look at the Obama as they lived a pretty privileged life both of them went to high and prep schools.
They ended up getting -- rides stuff Ivy League schools it's not exactly the average American story and it's frustrating to see both sides trying to pitch that when it's not -- I don't know that it matters or should matter how many of them.
Work for -- grew up for what should matter is their policy ideas.
Noam Friedman said how many of you would receipt refused to see a doctor because he hadn't been very sick you know it's the expertise that matters.
-- Republicans say -- they're saying you know America's a place where you could do this to.
Democrats when they say -- say oh there's so many victims around government has to be Big Ten helpful.
Well I mean I think also that I -- what they're -- they're emphasizing and they're saying look we had these programs food stamps welfare whenever that helped us when we needed.
So it's a safety net.
Thank god for big government run that and watching people -- -- the convention this week learned that Republicans want to hurt poor people and older people.
-- -- -- -- Then there's Medicare.
Instead of safeguarding.
Our seniors Romney and Ryan want to take away the promise that makes Medicare.
Medicare and turn it -- to have voucher program.
And shift the cost to our seniors it's just.
Playing them wrong.
And those chattering political class to say that will win -- the election now -- Dave -- to bad partly because the Republicans are saying exactly the same thing.
Rest assured granny -- -- your Medicare is not going anywhere -- never do anything for you I mean the Romney Ryan plan doesn't even kick in.
If it -- if they get elected for ten years.
Medicare is what is driving the bankruptcy of this country it and -- absolutely destructive and it needs to be blown up I mean we need to start.
Recognizing that being old is not being war.
And all we're doing is systematically robbing.
Young poor workers of the seed capital that they would be able to base their entire life.
And retirement on by saying we're gonna take that out in payroll taxes and give it to old people.
Regardless of whether or not they needed this -- this is where the two parties are closest.
And there are arguing over -- I would understand Paul Ryan here at least he has a plan the Democrats just say.
Will protect it when you won't touch it.
What it is brawl we will keep must be kept strong for seniors Mitt Romney is the top of the ticket -- he has -- in no uncertain terms that he will preserve.
Medicare he attacked every other Republican who you who dared.
Question that suggests that -- and all of that type of stuff but beyond that Paul Ryan to the accent he's open to conversation he has the wrong answer.
Because basically what he's trying to do is guarantee.
Current levels of benefit is unsustainable.
And it's on workable we need to get rid of the idea that just because she turned 65 you deserve.
A big fat check whether it's from Social Security Medicare or Medicaid the majority of which -- a little.
I'm people I'm a baby -- people my age don't think of it is a big fat check I'm robbing you people your -- Hadley.
People my age don't know all that I'm getting back three times when I paid it.
-- Well what we have here is it that.
Two different directions for Medicare right and maybe it's not extreme certainly neither party wants to scrap Medicare and get rid of -- tomorrow but we do have.
But Paul Ryan's plan very different from the democrats' plan and the Democrats do have a plan -- the independent payment advisory board that send the health flock.
Let's round that we're -- -- am -- gonna may actually lowering it scared -- I've tell Ryan is gonna magically do it by creating a voucher which will go up and valued the memorable and I -- -- -- -- What's what's the better choice what we have now moving towards the I stat system -- moving -- something that -- -- and suggest I mean.
-- -- -- I know those are two bad choices that are very similar the real choices to say we need to reconfigure.
Medicare Social Security were created for people coming out of the Great Depression.
-- in a different world now -- we need to radically rethink what the social contract is and it's certainly not that Nancy Pelosi.
Who's a millionaire gets Medicare and Social Security.
Well and with regard to evaluate we are about to -- all -- here but we're -- time for this so coming off.
We go back to the convention where our special correspondent we're gonna solve Medicare.
Our special correspondent candy talks tell my favorite presidential candidate.
For the past week -- has been our special correspondent at the Democratic Convention.
I ask -- to cover with the mainstream media usually -- And Kennedy I read that the democratic politicians are obsessed about -- cycling.
They are just sold in the garbage they stock -- there are recycling ambassadors posted.
At every single set of three garbage cans there were three sets of three garbage cans within fifty feet of me.
In that arena just the other day with a person.
State that every single sex.
And yet -- -- -- recycling police on duty.
You found that they're recycling rules are so complex that even democratic delegates can't follow.
Vick could lie these people.
Have put stuff in the landfill -- they clearly goes the recycling -- And this is an -- -- -- this thing.
Following his recycle the landfill -- There's I mean they're somewhere he interviewed -- -- recycling consultants.
And we're supposed to stop the people.
We try to stop the people that they go ahead and do.
Being site search pioneer investment or -- -- I think it is something you add up training for.
Very small what I recycling.
And this by the way I've heard in many businesses they've separated all goes to the basement installed together goes to a -- companies have -- separates and can't.
But one other thing that candy that you talk to the Democrats about was choice and they -- say.
I'm pro choice but to -- for -- is all about abortion.
There are a lot of other choices in life let's just play your clip.
What about the choice to own a gun do you support that it.
Well no not really although we don't have guns and pro choice on some things -- -- -- for tourists and others I think that we should maybe restrict the amount of fatty foods that we intend.
-- -- -- Good evening I'm in -- government so.
The government shouldn't tell me what I can DL with a pregnancy they should tell me what -- put my now that is correct.
This need no hypocrisy there.
No not at all every single person -- up at their logic with spot on and choice at the very fluid definition.
That they -- school choice the choice only gonna its all about abortion choice tonight.
The they they oppose free market days.
Any sort of free trade having that that is an offensive term to most of these people.
And -- and Norris you've got the fox signing your microphone and do they treat you.
This is the first time we've actually been able to use the time business -- killed.
Yeah out we don't look at explicitly especially -- went out and talk to protestors.
To go -- outcome might Q because people would either.
Trying to take the Mike or they would just take our stuff and our passes and maybe even heard us out.
It's not really cool you know I think when -- personal safety -- at risk.
I I will well.
On the other hand some of the protesters that you checked out outside the convention hall.
You say that -- some craziness there were many who made accurate points about both political parties.
As all of on the shoulders of both Republicans and Democrat -- that.
We limited one party.
Democratic government a little rats that are masquerading as two parties I don't think we should have failed bank now I don't neither are the auto industry.
I don't -- I don't think it's gonna -- the public can't I think I like your -- And.
We also interviewed delegates and you found that many of them have libertarian.
They didn't -- it but it was that great moment for many of them or at least for me.
They oppose things like drug raids by an offensive but using drones for the president to kill anybody decides to kill they refer.
Against deficits spending.
Yeah they all what a balanced budget there against the stop and risk lies.
And when I told them all they did pass with flying colors in that they would actually libertarians.
The -- all the.
And outside the convention -- you found one politician who agrees to better course and that's the former governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson's running for that.
Presidency and the Libertarian Party ticket.
-- -- -- -- Well it can't complain I just have a big fear of peaking too hurling.
We gave people -- -- and it turns out a 100% of them are libertarians.
They all have problems with the Patriot Act they all want a balanced budget.
Are you have a hard time convincing people they're actually libertarians.
President Obama I mean.
-- you know he says the right things but specifically he talked about not raiding medical marijuana facilities specifically.
What about the state of perpetual war.
Really come on.
Are -- gonna find ourselves continuing this unsustainable debt that we continue to rack up vote libertarian just this one time.
Just -- one time.
The Libertarian Party like that very much I think he should hold back and I just this one time thing could now he's a libertarian but.
-- -- -- What Kennedy -- wanna thank you for being there with all those politicians for word days so I don't have to do.
And thank you -- Next week we will -- we show 13 parties and -- you can learn more about what a president Gary Johnson would do.
But -- That Republican.
War on WiMax.
Democratic Convention coverage.
Why do people care about free markets and free people think about what.
They've heard well we've got our all star panel back mark Mack -- who founded the biggest Tea Party group.
-- -- from the independent women's forum nick Gillespie from reason TP.
The first point as we heard candy talk to these democratic delegates about being pro choice.
-- Why is pro choice just about abortion -- there -- other choices in life just like you women care about is.
That's all I care about I can't look up for a second and see that our economy is crumbling Aaron unemployment rates -- above 8% or forty something month but I'm -- the choice for the moment I had.
They selectively used the word as Kennedy said but we also heard a lot of euphemisms for women's right to decide their own health care choices.
Right to decide that -- waste.
They obviously does mean abortion.
Because any other health care choice I'm gonna make is going to be dictated to me.
Through the government the government's taking over health care system Obama -- a huge threat to our individual decisions and health care.
And the list of other choices tonight got stole this from David both of the Cato Institute opened my mind to it.
Choice for owning a gun on say the dams hiring an unpaid intern which we rely on here no that's gonna be illegal says the Labor Department.
Minimum -- -- -- people what you choose to pay them.
Where you could investors Social Security funds what -- do you get to eat if you wanna take a recreational drug.
-- do you that a woman's right to send her kid to a different school they oppose all that.
Right and some of those choices would.
Specifically benefit women more for example owning a gun.
Is it is a great thing for a woman to do when she's and it situation to defend herself these choices every important to women just like they are men and I'm I'm disappointed to see.
The Democratic Party always so negative about choices they say okay -- for me but not for you -- whatever you want.
-- abortion on my understanding is that women are about 5050 split on the legality like the rest of the population act.
I'm very confused com.
As Sandra -- right John than just agree with the woman in -- in the conversation and it'll be all right.
They'll be okay and -- -- drop at that and move on -- able to take your advice -- Another thing the platform is so impressed with.
President Obama's created these new government agencies to help us under Obama care for one that's going to be the coordinated health care office are.
Health care will be coordinated the center for innovation the primary care extension program the patient centered outcomes institute.
Thirty new agencies isn't this wonderful.
I think all of them are going to be did you -- kind of coordinated by the bureau of WTO off.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We're -- you know it's it's pretty clear though like in an ancient cave thing came up with commissions and bureaucracies.
To just get away from actually have to make an interest -- What's really going on is Democrats have to find other things and the health flock to talk about at this point.
Because people heard about individual mandate they've heard about the independent payment advisory board they've heard about the state -- exchanges.
They've heard about a lot of things and a lot of stealth so unpopular that they're trying to drag something out well we have a center for innovation but that's all the sudden gonna change people's minds.
I'm waiting for either party for anybody any politician -- tell me what agency are they getting rid of that's what I'm witnessed -- -- -- dozens every administration more they.
And then they won't run for office saying how many get rid of even the Education Department Ronald Reagan used to -- like getting rid -- -- Romney doesn't anymore you know and as I travel around the country -- people want to get rid of these agencies -- on both sides of the -- they did talk to Tea Party -- not -- -- -- -- -- -- at least half my time speaking to progressive -- there is broad agreement that government is too big that's among the regular people slowly -- absolutely but the -- on both -- the leadership -- government -- Republicans want bigger government Democrats want bigger government what they're fighting over is who controls the bigger effort.
Speaking of bigger government President Obama tonight said you have a choice we can costs education.
Or we can out educate any country on earth.
Announcement I'm gonna go with the second one manifesto that your choices -- -- you know.
It's tough five million and you know there's good points from both sides regarding this -- and does a good yeah I forgot these are the with the types of false choices that politicians are always trying to -- you know yes no -- -- has them.
It's it's just BS all the way down.
What Obama has been doing it why it's -- and all -- is not on the table they have.
Tripled spending to no effect and the George I George W.
Bush with the No Child Left Behind one massively increased federal involvement in education.
Obamas can no benefits the the great movement in you know the past fifty years has been -- decentralization.
Of power and decision making to the individuals.
Who were most invested in the outcome.
What we see with Obama and education -- saying no we're gonna pile more stuff on the top.
To make a steeper pyramid instead of saying you know what we've tried giving money more money to education.
Let's just give it to them to the parents to let them decide where the kids can let the parent choose the school the -- would -- what -- -- idea and actually guiding is on the table it should be a choice we should got the education bureaucracy we should get rid of the Department of Education should try to back.
-- got the bureaucracy just a gut education.
-- -- -- Shouldn't be involved anyway it's a local responsibility.
Another bad one and then finally the longest war will be over said the president we're ending the war -- yet.
In Iraq -- so what we've taken all the soldiers out they say but we got 161000.
People on an embassy.
In Afghanistan -- still 68000.
Troops for a guy who campaigned on ending the war as well.
And you know -- he said we're going to be -- in 2014.
Woolsey if that happens Joseph were out of Iraq where we left on well withdrawal plan that was.
You have produced under George W.
Bush and Leon Panetta -- Defense Secretary was begging the Iraqis to -- American troops stay there.
Through you know pass the December 2011 to -- This president has not earned his Nobel Peace Prize that's for short he's a warrior.
Our audience -- They also -- much of the convention and all of the president Obama's speech so.
What do you think and what are your whole think -- next.
Our audience participation.
-- here again with mark Mack -- who founded the biggest Tea Party group.
-- -- from the independent women's forum nick Gillespie from reason TV.
First from my FaceBook page -- bond desks is voting for Gary Johnson -- Libertarian Party candidate.
Really a vote for Obama like conservatives like -- B.
-- So you to differ there.
Yeah I know I think -- vote for Gary Johnson is a vote -- were -- legitimate politician who's got a great idea about how to run the country which is to let people live their lives.
And it's not it's not going to elect Obama if Mitt Romney loses this election it's because the Republicans stink.
And the Republicans have -- earned my vote I just want the government to spend -- If you were wars and to our -- a different position.
So the way I see it it's a two horse race.
Either Obama's gonna get four more years or Mitt Romney's gonna be the next president of the United States.
Each of us has an opportunity to impact the outcome of that rates in fact each of us when we vote.
Are impacting -- outcome of that race because we only have one vote together so I think at this point libertarians like other -- should evaluate.
Which of these two options is more liberty friendly.
Obama care has been.
-- it's been sold to us as the an answer to all our health care issues if that's the case.
Why were so many unions and so many of the president's political allies given waivers exemptions and deferments to Obama -- right away -- -- -- unions got okay doesn't apply you.
And -- and.
No obamacare obviously has a lot of flaws and Obama care.
Don't miss this.
Is crony capitalism obamacare was supported by health insurance company is because they -- promised millions of new customers.
So when they get waivers of course that's more cronyism this is big government health care it's big government taking over.
And wait for the politicians to say are you come kiss my ring I'll give you special break will do retail politics -- you.
Talk -- Yes -- If Republicans and Democrats care so much about the middle class.
Why -- they asked them to subsidize their conventions with tax dollars from the middle class.
Did you know that you paid for these silly conventions -- -- it's just.
Where they've already picked the -- it's an infomercial well they've got to force us to pay for them because we wouldn't do it willingly.
So an and we'll pay for all of -- we pay eighteen million bucks and it cost about sixty middle although it's also true that all of these things take place in heavily on subsidized stadiums that were built with tax dollars are given special treatment so.
You know it's it's bad news all the way down.
Nobody wants to pay for their own party.
We should stop paying for I think -- senator Coburn says.
Congress ignored him.
Another question from the audience.
Obama said he would regulate auto industry.
Today create twice as efficient fuel efficient vehicles.
One auto makers be incentivized to do that anyway since more people want to buy more fuel efficient vehicles.
The answer is a market always works better and you have the market will incentivized the right things we know we're too stupid.
But certainly what the government believes we're too stupid.
And what they view is they create a situation.
In regard to fuel standards and much more dangerous force he's cafe standards are requiring us to build lighter less safe cars.
Thousands of people are dying because of cafe standards so the choice they're making is.
Fuel efficiency vs human lives in their choosing fuel efficiency.
And we're gonna need to those cars to go twice this far in one gallon of gas -- back down and we twice as expensive.
And that's fine with President Obama he said that it's fine if gasoline prices continue your -- And the cars twice as expensive -- as well.
But they're helping poor people.
Offer my FaceBook page -- portal says I love with Michelle Obama's line Barack says there's no such thing as us and them.
Are you kidding me she asks but people like that bus -- -- -- in it together.
There you know there is such thing as -- us and them in this country.
It's not us and them it's not left vs right or Democrat vs Republican the real us -- them.
For the ruling elite vs the people of this country the Colony Capital.
And that's why -- like that win.
Kennedy -- and what you mean by a week people who governments they say we but.
There's no we if there are given us orders three means free people make -- our own choices.
Any people who think alike you know -- different groups of people who subscribe to different philosophies about government and society and that diversity of Scott is what makes our country great.
-- -- nick and mark coming up.
I'll tell you what President Obama should have said.
This year the Obama administration announced its new campaign theme is forward.
Makes me wonder for word -- -- bankruptcy.
Last election Obama campaigned on the slogan yes we can't.
And more recently Obama enthusiasts probably created the bumper sticker yes we did.
What did they do that makes them proud -- Yes we did increase military spending.
In fact yes we did increase holes spend a lot so we're now another four trillion in debt.
Yes we did continue our pointless war on drugs.
Yes we did take over most of American health care without even reading the bill here is how good we read this it's through -- Yes and we did pass much more regulation.
Not as many new rule since President Bush passed by Obama's rules cost more.
And we -- we have thousands of pages of new rules that you have to will -- What you don't understand all of them this'll bankrupt you don't worry if you -- the right politicians ring -- make an exception for you.
And it gives the politicians more power.
Now President Obama did accomplish some good things he made it okay for openly gay people to serve in the military.
He took a small step toward letting immigrants who work or serve in our military stay here legally.
It's pretty much it.
Here's what I wish President Obama had -- tonight.
I was wrong to expand government the way I -- I overreached.
Modern liberalism put us on an unsustainable course when I said yes we can I -- government -- But now I realize thanks -- that book written by that it's -- guy.
I realize that government fails but individuals succeed so I will save America.
By restoring limited government one that keeps the peace but then leaves three people along.
He didn't say that of course they never do it.
President you progressives say you believe in social justice and a liberal social order but.
Thomas Jefferson's idea of social justice was a free society.
Where people are unimpeded by politicians.
That's genuine liberal -- Mr.
President you bought into this distortion of liberalism where it means government runs things and the rest of us follow directions.
That's not liberalism.
Liberalism is about liberty.
Only that and free markets can bring us real hope and change.
That's our show will be back next week at our regular time 9 PM eastern for show -- we give third party candidates a chance to say.
They'd make America better.
Thanks for --
