Don’t Worry About Trump, Hillary, the Election, or the State of our Nation, Worry About Your Own Civic Ignorance.

We take a couple of calls from the losers and talk about my testicles, pharmaceutical use in America, Cannibis, and Ayahuasca or Iowaska.  We get some encouragement and thoughts from you all on Facebook, Instagram, and email.  Then we spend some time reading a great article you sent in from Glen Beck?

As we wrap up the show, a new Loser sent in an amazing video of former Supreme Court Justice David Souter sharing his fear of losing democracy due to Americans being ignorant about civics and how government works.

The information on this video is essential to our continued understanding of democracy and civics. When we the people are ignorant of who to blame for legal infractions by the government, we are in great danger of losing freedom. Especially now as we watch it disintegrate under President Trump winning as a demagogue.
