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>
