    I think the current cohort of millennials are essentially a generation of Ronald Reagan’s, because of the over simplistic black and white, good v. evil world view they have.

    Ah, but the questions posed are founded on the premise that skin color/race is important, and not just important but key to many of the very topics discussed. Would you ask these same questions of an oriental? Apparently we simply cannot help racial profiling in our discussions because race is a foundational identifier for chosen topics. I'm not saying this is bad, just that we should recognize and be able to discuss the truth of this.

    Maybe he can look to start up a good black university. There are enough very good black professors. And only blacks can go to this Univ. That would be great! Then they dont have to give off on the whites all the time!

    20:20 statistically speaking, according to the Brookings institute poverty across all groups has very much to do with single motherhood. The black single motherhood rate was declining before the welfare state. In 1960 the single motherhood rate was at 20 percent, today it's 70 percent

    This was such a good conversation; listening to everything he said about limiting government and not whitewashing history and etc I'm not sure how he was ever a Hilary supporter but I really like this guy and will be watching him.

    53:30 "Is there any way to scale it back? This thing has gotten so big can we cut back?" The only way to make that happen is through the COS Project: https://conventionofstates.com. A convention of the states could return power to the people and the states and fix the financial issues Congress won't because of the big business money in Washington. Dave you REALLY need to have a COS representative on to talk about it.

    On Mr. Taylor's point regarding these 'fragile' communities, wouldn't ending the drug war, and simply undermining the market for illegal drug sales work in reducing gang crime? Wouldn't legalizing prostitution lead to less women selling their bodies on the street? You'd also put the pimps out of a job if you did that, I'd think.

    I'm just saying. I don't think we'd have nearly as much crime, if we merely legalized and regulated these things. I mean, why buy a rock of crack for twenty to forty dollars, when you can buy coke for cheaper at a store? Drugs are a risky business, man. It isn't easy. If you take away the money, then you'll find that people won't bother trying to sale it to your kids anymore.
