The past few weeks have changed the entire tenor of the 2020 election. In what was shaping to be landslide victory for Biden, an air of uncertainty has taken hold of the political winds, as ANTIFA and violent rioter and looters take to the streets of Americas largest cities, causing massive mayhem and destruction.
These mobs have gotten more aggressive in recent weeks, with shootings taking place on the regular. Senator Rand Paul and his wife were assailed by a mob while walking back to their hotel from the White House, despite Rand Paul being one of Black Lives Matter's best allies on the right.
It was this final act that started to change the minds of voters who were considering the Libertarian candidate in Dr. Jo Jorgensen as an alternative to Trump vs. Biden, with one such voter being that of Austin Petersen!
Austin joins the show to discuss the shift he has experienced over the past few weeks in response to the riots/Paul's being harassed, and why, yes, he's seriously considering voting for Donald Trump.
Tune in to learn why he's reconsidering!

With the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police, the Black Lives Matter movement received a much needed added boost back into the national conversation in recent months.
However, as peaceful protests have more recently been descending into rioting and looting at the hands of bad actors who are co-opting the BLM movement (like ANTIFA, looters, etc...), we've watched the positive sentiments towards BLM wane, meaning meaningful criminal justice reform is getting more and more difficult.
Joining the program is friend of the show, Brad Polumbo! Brad has been doing great work in digging into economics and criminal justice reform, and today, Brad joins the show to discuss how the riots have not only set predominantly minority communities back by decades, but have truly damage the ability to move forward some substantive criminal justice reform.
