Amazon Prime Day shows the beauty of Capitalism...
<p>It's that time of year again. It's Amazon Prime Day. As a Free-Market Capitalist, you have to rejoice in the fact that this day exists. </p> <p>You can literally buy everything you need on Amazon, and have it delivered to your house in two days. Sometimes, you can have it delivered in as little as two hours. </p> <p>We have to sit back and ask the question, "Why does this exist?" Well, put simply, it exists because someone wanted to make money. Maybe that sounds selfish or greedy, but that's only if you have a negative view of money, itself. </p> <p>Money, as always, is a representation of value that you have provided to others. In a free-market system, that is. If you pay $1 for a cup of coffee, it is only because you value that cup of coffee more than you valued the dollar. On the flip side, the vendor only sold you the coffee because they valued the dollar more than they valued the coffee. As simple as it is, that small example works for all things in a free-market economy. </p> <p>If you hold the above view of money, then you are less likely to look down upon the desire to make money by starting your own business. As long as you are operating in a free economy, you would only be able to make money by providing products or services that the population value. If it wasn't deemed valuable, you would never make the money. </p> <p>So now we arrive back at the fact that someone started Amazon to make money. Good! </p> <p>As a study on the effects of Walmart found, the average American family saves over $2,500 per year simply because Walmart exists, whether they shop at Walmart or not. How? All of the competing retailers and grocery stores must find ways to lower their costs/prices so they remain competitive with Walmart for your business. </p> <p>We see the same thing with Amazon. In our podcast episode, we detail out the amazing fact that today and tomorrow, not only do you have the option to shop at a large discount at Amazon, but Target and Walmart are both running massive online sales to compete with Amazon for your business. This means that Amazon is saving you money, even if you don't have a Prime membership, or shop at Amazon.com for any of your goods. </p> <p>That's the amazing part about Capitalism and the Free-Market. No government issued an order today stating that Amazon must lower their prices, and no regulative body issued an order stating that Walmart and Target must lower their prices to match Amazon. That's the power of a free and competitive market. </p> <p>So who wins in this scenario? Well certainly Jeff Bezos and thousands of other Amazon investors, but also the hundreds of millions of people that use Amazon, Walmart, and Target. The economy as a whole wins because the opportunity to allocate dollars to more efficient uses has now presented itself. </p> <p>The rest of the beauty? You don't have to shop at Amazon today, or tomorrow. You can spend more elsewhere, make your own products, or buy from a local vendor. Amazon is not forcing you to use their services. They want you to use their services, and they are offering you a better quality of life for doing so. </p> <p>That's Free-Market Capitalism- and it's freaking beautiful. </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

Citizenship Questions | Regulating Crypto | Reg...
<p>So many things to talk about today..</p> <p>Subscribe to the podcast!</p> <p> </p> <p>Should the US Census require an answer on citizenship? Republicans think so. We'll discuss our libertarian conundrum on this one.</p> <p>Also, how about regulating cryptocurrencies? Has the government shown that it should be trusted to regulate financial industries? What about the $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities currently weighing on our currency?</p> <p>Social media companies are treating conservatives unfairly, that's obvious. But do you want the US government in control of those companies or their content? What about when there's a democrat in charge? Seems dangerous..</p> <p>The CBO released it's study on the minimum wage, and it wasn't good. Unless you're a liberal, in that case, it was great. Is it okay to trade a 5% gain in "Real family income" for 1.3 million people losing their jobs? Probably not. </p> <p>Subscribe to the podcast, and as always, visit </p> <p><a href= "http://www.goodmorningliberty.us">www.goodmorningliberty.us</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.bernielies.com">www.bernielies.com</a></p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

If taxation is theft, "Corporate Welfare" isn't...
<p><strong>Please subscribe to the podcast!</strong></p> <p>What a discussion! We planned on talking about the CBO's study on the minimum wage, but we deviated into a conversation about the reality of corporate welfare. </p> <p>Let me ask you this. If taxation is theft, why would you propose a problems "solution" is to make sure someone is paying more taxes? </p> <p>If a thief is making their way through your neighborhood, taking $1,000 from each house, and your next door neighbor makes a deal for only $500 to be stolen, who is in the wrong? Would you suggest that this is "unfair?" Of course it is- but which party is responsible? Would you suggest that the solution is to make sure your neighbor pays the remaining $500?</p> <p> </p> <p><a href="http://www.bernielies.com">www.bernielies.com</a></p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

Let's discuss Justin Amash, Collin Kaepernick, ...
<p>I pledge allegiance to the Republican Party.. Oh wait, that's not it.. </p> <p>Today we talk about Justin Amash and his recent announcement. Mainly we'll discuss some of the insane comments we've seen made by Republicans, and yes, even President Trump. </p> <p>If your number one goal is to protect the constitution and to further individual liberty, how is it a good thing that Amash is no longer a part of your party? He happens to hold a 100% rating from FreedomWorks, and a 94% on the Freedom Index when it comes to voting in accordance with the US Constitution. This puts him well above most Republicans, but maybe that's not what a Republican is anymore. It seems that they are more concerned with allegiance to the party and the President than allegiance to the Constitution. </p> <p>We'll also take on the controversy surrounding NIKE and their recent decision to ban the "Betsy Ross" flag from their shoe designs. Citing "racism" and "slavery" as the reasons for this decision. </p> <p>What about all the other countries that held slaves in that time period? Are we going to ban the British "Union Jack" as well?</p> <p>As always, please subscribe to the podcast, and tell friend. </p> <p><a href= "http://www.goodmorningliberty.us">www.goodmorningliberty.us</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.bernielies.com">www.bernielies.com</a></p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

<p>This is a short history of the "Kulaks." A "Kulak" was the name for a wealthy peasant in 1920's Russia. They were the farmers. Even having an acre or two more, or one more cow, would get you the label of Kulak. When times were rough, Lenin and Stalin pointed the masses to the Kulaks as the reason for all their suffrage.</p> <p>What happened next was the inevitable ending of class warfare. It is the implied logical conclusion that comes from pointing at one class and saying that they are to blame for your problems.</p> <p>Almost a million Kulaks were murdered. Here's how insane this ideology is- The Kulaks were the ones that knew how to grow food. In the famine that followed the destruction of the Kulaks, upwards of six million people starved to death. </p> <p>This ideology breeds such blind hatred for those who have more, that they never thought to ask "where will we get our food?" before killing an entire class of people. </p> <p> </p> <p><a href= "http://www.goodmorningliberty.us">www.goodmorningliberty.us</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.bernielies.com">www.bernielies.com</a></p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

Let’s not forget that in today’s money, John D Rockefeller was worth twice as much just by himself. bernielies.com goodmorningliberty.us --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

Audio version of the article from www.goodmorningliberty.us The classic view of socialism is "worker owned" means of production. I've seen people suggest this as a solution for most big companies. I've seen things like "They don't need executives," or "If the workers owned the business it wouldn't be this way.." Here's my honest reply to that ideology. Okay. Good.

029: Taxation is a Prison. Is it Unfair to Buy ...
<p>What’s up freedom lovers? Thanks once again for stopping by. If this is your first episode I’m going to warn you, we get way down in the weeds in this episode. Today we talked about Corporate Welfare.</p> <p>We don’t hide the fact that we are big supporters of business, big or small. But what happens when taxpayer money is “given” to certain businesses?</p> <p>First off, we have to start with taxes. We hate them. We want the tax rate to be around 0% for everyone. But since we have taxes, is it fair for a business to be able to buy their way out of them?</p> <p>It probably isn’t, but is the business where the problem starts, or is it actually the deeper issue of taxation in itself that we need to fix? If we are Libertarians, can we actually suggest equal tyranny is any better than unevenly dispersed tyranny? Some people want to focus on fixing the tyranny, some people think we can start by making things fair first.</p> <p>See, even the notes were a mess! We hope you enjoy this deep libertarian episode, and If you do, please share the show with a friend!</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

028: Without Corporations, We All Would Die
<p>It’s been another long 2 weeks since we last spoke and there has been a ton of news! Thanks for coming back to listen to our take on this crazy disaster called American politics.</p> <p>We started with a local story right here from Nashville, TN. Our very own HCA (Hospital Corporation of America) really stepped in it this time. Apparently they were given 1 million dollars in taxpayer money that had been laid out to support poor areas of town. The click-bait headline reads that they used that 1 million on office furniture. Does everyone assume that they weren’t going to buy office furniture until Nashville gave them the money? Point is, that was a fixed cost for the building. And of course no one cares that they spent 10 million of their own money to rebuild the infrastructure for the area!</p> <p>Seattle is doing what they do best; removing reasons to ever become productive. They have passed a “per-head” tax on any business that grosses more than 20 million a year. That right, “gross” not “net.” Even if you gross 20 million and your expenses are $19,999,999, you still owe the government their extra money! For each employee you have to pay an additional $300 tax. I say additional because employers already pay taxes for each employee. Nate lays out his dream scenario for Jeff Bezos’ reaction.</p> <p>Thanks for listening as always, and check back soon for more episodes!</p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

027: Libertarians - "We Care Harder"
<p>Well, it has been awhile and to say we have missed you would be an understatement! Charlie was way south of the border, in Peru. There weren't any walls he had to climb over, either. Nate got married in the Bahamas! Congrats to him and his life-long decision. Jon has been working on his property and was robbed. So, it wasn't a fun time for all of us, just Charlie and Nate.</p> <p>You may be asking, how do libertarians actually care harder? Well, we explain that for you. Most libertarians are considered heartless, or that we only care about money and big business. Really, we care about you and your quality of life. Labor is a commodity. That means, that you can compete with your labor and skills, and when it is as easy a possible for a business to thrive, the more demand you have for your labor skill. </p> <p>The idea of the free market is actually truly beautiful. The fact that this system works without any rules or controls is mind boggling. What else in your life works that way? If we just allow this system to thrive, everyone would be richer for it.</p> <p>This week's Whiskey of the Week: Barrel Whiskey batch 001</p> <p>Good Morning Liberty</p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

<p>This week we take a closer look at a local issue. On May 1st, Nashville will be voting on a mass transit plan that promises to fix the crippling gridlock that’s plagued its citizens for the last several years. Yes you heard it right, government thinks it’s the answer to fixing gridlock. All they need is more money, and they can for sure fix the problem. Assuming they are the first government in history to come in within the budget and on time, it should only cost about $9 billion and be finished by 2032.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p>We brought on a very special guest to help us understand the plan in more detail. Hannah Cox from the Beacon Center of Tennessee, joins us to drink whiskey, make sarcastic jokes, and maybe discuss “Let’s Move, Nashville” a little too.<span class= "Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p>The Beacon Center describes itself as “a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and independent organization dedicated to providing expert empirical research and timely free market solutions to public policy issues in Tennessee.” Hannah does a great job destroying the transit plan, so check out the episode and tell us what you think!</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

025: Congress Finally Declares War... On Facebook
<p>Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, was grilled this week by Senate and Congressional hearings regarding Facebook's "failure" to not safeguard Cambridge Analytica from selling 87 million user's data to 3rd parties. Somehow, this has become Zuckerberg's obligation and fault. We will say that he has this obligation, but only because of the users of Facebook want their data protected, not because it should be government mandated. The market has already moved against Facebook, including Ellon Musk deleting all of its Facebook accounts. There's not some magic law or fine that will keep this from happening. Hitting Facebook in the pocketbook will keep this from happening and it's already proven to be true before the hearings were even scheduled.</p> <p>Every time I typed out these show notes, I feel like I'm always having to tell President Trump to stay off of Twitter. It really has been a circus since he has taken office as far as his tweets go. The latest we talk about, being bombing Syria and threatening Russia that they can't shoot down the missiles because they're "smart." He literally put "smart" in quotation marks, like I just did!</p> <p>The United States has 0 business being involved with Syria, or bombing them, even if it were true that Assad used Chemical Weapons. There is no truth to that, but this war has nothing to do with America's security and Liberty. Our Republic is not being threatened by Assad, so there's no reason for us to go to war.

024: March For Our Lives...From Spending
<p>In lighter news, in today's show, Stormy Daniels defied her agreement with President Trump and told her story on 60 Minutes. I'm not sure why that's even news, but to each their own, we guess. Apparently, the Donald, or as we like to call him, Tariff Daddy, was reading and talking about himself when he made the cover of Time Magazine, and she took that magazine and spanked him with it. This was 11 years ago. Did anyone think that Trump wasn't going to cheat on his 4th wife. Or 8th wife - I'm not sure; I lost count.</p> <p>Hundreds of thousands of kids took to the streets in protest, in what they called the "March for our Lives" this past weekend. Where did they come up with that name? How original is that? Oh yeah, there's already a protest called "March for Life." Real clever, teenagers. It must have taken your parents a long time to come up with that one.</p> <p>Is anyone taking these kids seriously besides the left spun media? Are we really trying to listen to the same teenagers that were eating laundry detergent a mere 3 weeks ago? The Tide Pod eating craze was so popular, it forced Democrats to advocate for laws trying to compel companies not to make laundry detergent so appetizing. Seriously. And we are supposed to listen to them about policy and the natural right to protect yourself?</p> <p>Your "Republican" President signed a $1.3 Trillion spending plan on Friday. Sounds real conservative. Charlie gets heated in this discussion. In fact, Jon calls him Rush Limbaugh at the end because the rant was fire! How is it, that "conservatives" in power pass the second largest spending bill in United States history? And the President has the gall to say, "I'm never signing another bill like this." Then why did you sign that one!? I'll never understand that logic. Oh, and we will have to make another episode about abortion and Planned Parenthood, but in case you didn't know, yes, it still received it's $500 million in funding from the Federal Government.

023: Trump Proclaims Death Penalty For Getting ...
<p>Another Libertarian show talking about drugs... Except this one is different! It's time to have a real conversation about drugs. Drugs are bad. Heroine destroys lives. The opioid crisis is real. Trump and his administration's plan is horrible. Here's why.</p> <p>In a speech, President Trump talked about being tough of drug dealers and drug traffickers. In fact, he called for the death penalty. Now, whatever your feelings are about drugs or this black market business, calling for the death penalty doesn't solve this problem. What is this? 1400 England? Do we have a king shouting, "OFF WITH YOUR HEAD?" </p> <p>The fact remains, prohibition doesn't work. It never has and it never will. Building walls, locking people up, and instituting a death penalty, will not curb the issue that we see. History proves that prohibition didn't work with alcohol, and the last 50 years proves that the drug war hasn't worked either.</p> <p>What do we do about the violence, drug overdoses, and the $340 billion dollar black market of illicit drugs? Believe it or not, legalize them! Just because something is legal doesn't mean you have to do it. Plus, don't you own yourself? Can you decide what goes into your body, or does the government get to decide that?</p> <p>Good Morning Liberty</p> <p>This week's Whiskey of the Week is Russell's Reserve Single Barrel.

022: Why Profit Isn't Greedy or Evil
<p>Jon made the ultimate libertarian mistake last episode and talked about the Federal Reserve being a for profit corporation like profit was a bad thing. But have no fear! Mistakes allow you to expand on your intent and it brings you the newest episode on why profit is a good thing.</p> <p>First things first, what is profit? What is money? Well, money is just a representation of value to trade with others. Profit is trading to get excess value to trade for additional things that are needed or wanted. We get in depth on basic economic principles of money and the profit motive.</p> <p>The profit motive is what drive efficiency an innovation. The greatest things in life have come from people looking for ways to make life better, easier, and more comfortable all due to wanting to make profit.</p> <p>Milton Friedman said, "It's always the other fellow whose greedy. It's never any of us." Whether or not you are a business owner, everyone tries to make as much money as possible for the least amount of work. When you interview for a job, you want the highest salary possible.</p> <p>Apple, Uber, Ford, Space X, Facebook and Amazon are just a few companies that have given us examples of how profit has improved everyone's lives. Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, and Ellon Musk are all epitomes of visionaries driven by making a profit.</p> <p>Listen in and let us know what you think!

<p>I think it goes without saying that we believe in less government intervention here on Good Morning Liberty. So why is it that we should cheer on Rand Paul for wanting to audit the Federal Reserve? What is the Federal Reserve? We answer these questions and much more in this in depth episode. It's important to understand economics and financial institutions, because it's affecting your life more than you think. What if you could purchase 8% more groceries, gas, or clothes in your life? Would that drastically improve your situation?</p> <p>Dr. Ben Carson, President Trump's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, has supposedly lobotomized HUD. Basically, Carson sees a different direction for those that are dependent on HUD. He believes that people have a poverty mindset, and instead of continuing to just house them, we should work to help move them out of poverty. Dr. Carson didn't even fight to not decrease the HUD's budget.

020: Even Libertarian Show Hosts Fall Down The ...
<p>Those that don't know history are destined to repeat it. Several have said this, but I believe this specific quote comes from Edmund Burke. It's a powerful statement, really. How quickly can humankind forget events that have so negatively impacted them? This phenomenon spans many issues, but in today's episode, we discuss some more gun debate and we are high on tariff watch.</p> <p>President Donald Trump has announced on social media and other outlets, that a steel and aluminum tariff are coming. This is part of his America First agenda. Really, it's a way to stir up his base. However, this doesn't put America First. It only benefits a very minute sector of American industries and could be costly to every other American. As I mentioned before about history, one only has to look to the 1930's to understand why tariff's like this are an atrocity. That time period was the last time that America exported more than it imported. It wasn't a good time. Don't be fooled. Listen in and hear why this is bad news for everyone.</p> <p>We hated to do this, but a gentleman we really admire on the show, and listen to his show all the time, the Jason Stapleton Program, has gone back and forth with a listener about some different gun control measures. Shockingly, we didn't agree with what Jason had to say in regards to a position he was defending. Jason defends a stance that guns can be taken away from you in a restraining order type process, if your mom or relative petitions the court, before due process has taken place. We explain what constitutes due process as well as not wanting to give an inch to the gun grabbers. We have given enough inches, it's time to take back some of our liberties.</p> <p> </p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>

<p>It wasn't that long ago that the Bundy's and a bunch of ranchers in Nevada held off federal agents in a standoff. An overreaching, tyrannical branch of the federal government, the BLM, was deterred from trying to achieve theft of property by citizens with guns. This is why the 2nd amendment exists. </p> <p>The constitution is nothing new. A light bulb didn't go off in the founders' heads, and they drafted the constitution. It comes from over 600 years of experience of dealing with tyranny and oppressiveness. There's a specific reason the constitution is meant to limit government and protect natural rights for people.</p> <p>The King himself, Jon King, wasn't able to make this episode.

The shooting in Parkland, Florida, was nothing but tragic. How did we get here? What's the answer? We discuss some possibilities surrounding the surge in school shootings over the last 20 years. Just a hint: there are no easy solutions.</p> <p>We know gun control won't work. There are over 300 million guns in America, and confiscation of those weapons would be impossible. Background checks are already required. It's already against the law for violent criminals to purchase or possess a gun. What can lawmakers do?</p> <p>As libertarians, we believe first and foremost in liberty and freedom. Above all, those principles are natural rights. That doesn't mean you can't be pro-life and pro-gun. Those two things can exist. This is a discussion you won't hear anywhere else, especially in the libertarian or conservative realms.

Whether or not you think it's Trump's fault, we tell you everything you need to know about the flash crash. Your Lispy Libertarian, Nate Thurston, watches the market every day. Bitcoin makes the market watch discussion as The Jon King chimes in with his Bitcoin losses by the second.</p> <p>At the end of last week, Republicans decided to declassify their Memo listing out a he-said, she-said version of FISA abuses. It's no surprise that Government is abusing it's power, especially when it comes to violating the fourth amendment. The real headline should focus on how Congressman Nunes, and the intelligence committee ilk, knew about what was happening and sat on the information while Congress voted overwhelmingly to expand and extend FISA power for another 6 years! Charlie gets heated in this one. </p> <p>Interesting story about restaurants and how tips will be divided among servers. Should the restaurant owner be able to collect all tips and then decide if he even wants to give them to the servers appropriately? The liberals make our taxation is theft case for us in this one!</p> <p>Every episode, we can't escape our tariff daddy, Trump. Apparently, there will be a tariff war between the EU and the USA.

<p>Why does it always have to be the right versus the left? In this week's Trolling with Nate, Twitter users respond to the House GOP's announcement of how many bills it passed committee and sent to the Senate. We won't even ask the question of why they passed so many, or why there's a need to put on display that over 400 bills made it out of committee. Nate responds to someone in particular whom shouted that not one bill benefited the poor or middle class. The reading is dramatic! Somehow some people think that the rich don't pay any taxes...</p> <p>Trump can't stop giving the media exactly what it wants. More fuel to try and demean his character. Allegedly, Senator Dick Durbin said, that President Trump referred to Haiti and other African countries as sh*thole countries. Is he wrong? This leads us into an immigration discussion you won't find on Facebook.</p> <p>The House of Representatives has passed the extension of the FISA Act, which allows the government to continue to spy on Americans. This sounds like freedom and liberty... not! We do have some hope, as Rand Paul has mentioned that he will filibuster, and Trump tweeted negatively about it. Maybe Trump won't sign the bill if it makes it out of the Senate! Edward Snowden, the genius that told the American people of our government spying, mentions that if you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is like saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say.</p> <p>Do you know what a stock buyback is? We break it down in simple numbers for you. Everyone benefits from this. Well, at least everyone that has some sort of retirement. Mutual fund, IRA, 401k, or pension, they all benefit from a stock buyback!</p> <p>In case you didn't know, we are from Nashville. So we give you a taste of our southern accents for fun! We give you our take of what aspect of liberty is most important! What aspect of liberty or freedom is most important to you?

012: Trump Pushes North Korea's Little Buttons,...
<p>Happy New Year! The Big Freedom Show is excited to be back and we have a packed episode to kick the new year off right. We have a lot of exciting things coming your way in 2018!</p> <p>President Trump is at it again on Twitter. He sent the media into a frenzy again. Apparently, Kim Jong Un mentioned in a New Year's speech that he has a nuclear button on his desk, and Trump responded by saying he has a much bigger nuclear button and his actually works. Obviously Trump is just firing up his base and Kim wants a seat at the table as a nuclear power. We discuss the non-aggression principle, how it applies, and whether or not a preemptive strike is a good idea.</p> <p> A new segment is upon us! Trolling with Nate! Each week, we will have a dramatic reading of Nate's passive aggressiveness on Twitter as he tries to get people to engage in conversation and teach them all about Liberty. We discuss another Twitter battle about Wal-Mart's wages and the fight for $15. Not surprisingly, the CEO pay wouldn't even put a dent in raising wages.</p> <p>Your favorite Tariff Daddy, Trump, can't get enough of punishing Canada. Jon dives into the new tariffs and how they are affecting business. Apparently the way to Make America Great Again, is to put other countries down. We talk about how this only hurts the American consumer.</p> <p>Finally, we talk about what a small government actually means. What did the founder's think? Government is a necessary evil, and if that's true, how do we actually fund it without stealing? All these questions and more are answered in this episode!</p> <p>Tune in and let us know what you think at <a href= "mailto:info@thebigfreedomshow.com">info@thebigfreedomshow.com</a></p> <p>This week's Whiskey of the Week is Weller Antique 107. Our highest rated bourbon to date!</p> --- Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/goodmorningliberty/support</a>
