[EPISODE] Fear and Regret
Join Larry Sharpe on The Gov Shack !
Larry talks about his experience as he travels all over New York after the election. His findings are that people he’s met who didn’t vote for him regret it and the people who did vote for him, didn’t regret it. He urges listeners to change their affiliations if they plan on being loyal libertarians or in the very least, to stay connected to him and what he is doing through his social media accounts. He talks about changes that should be made regarding transportation in NY: specifically, the MTA and Uber.
Larry talks about how he feels about Amazon moving its headquarters to New York and its effect on jobs, taxes, politicians, rent, and other businesses. Larry takes a call from a listener and they talk about the libertarian anniversary that just passed on the eleventh of December and later, about libertarian debates. He takes another question and talks about Rules for debates in NYC as opposed to other areas around the country.
Larry begins by talking about the ideas that monopolies do not work, using Spectrum as an example (Manhattan’s cable provider). He then talks about rhetoric and policy and how they play important but different roles in elections: people need rhetoric to form an emotional connection to the politicians in order to read up on the policies. He talks about how the Libertarian party differs from other parties in ways that can directly change lives for the better.
Larry talks about the fact that states are making money from divorced parents paying child support and how horrible of a system this is. Not only does he speak about how states make this money; he also states that if the child is taken away, the federal government pays them. He wonders if this is ethical. In many instances, he has found that most people he has spoken to know someone who is a felon because they didn’t pay child support or know a child who has attempted or committed suicide partly due to the emotional toll being a product of divorced parents and one parent paying child support for them. He continues answering questions until the end of the show and urges listeners to continue to support him.
