Culture Eats Elections for Lunch

Podcast cover

Peter Drucker famously said that "culture eats strategy for breakfast." We take a look at the role of culture in this election season by discussing Hillary Clinton's "basket of deplorables" comments and sharing our interview with Nikki Johnson-Huston, attorney, advocate, and the author of "The Culture of the Smug White Liberal." We also briefly cover the cease-fire in Syria, how September 11 influences our generation, and the "life-changing" power of paring things down.

Special Episode: Alex Merced on Libertarianism

Podcast cover
Read more

In this special episode, Beth interviews libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate (New York) Alex Merced. Alex talks about his background, why he's a libertarian, the current presidential and his positions on a "lightening round" of issues.

Here's what you should know about Alex

Name: Alex Merced - Libertarian Party US Senate Candidate (NY)

Age: 31

Married to wife for 2 years (together for 7 years)

Profession: Corporate Trainer in Financial Industry, former retail store owner (Gamers Lounge in Bowling Green, oh), Podcaster/blogger, event promoter, social media consultant

Education: BA from Bowling Green State University

If Elected Would Be...

- Youngest Serving US Senator (dethroning Tom Cotton)

- First Puerto Rican or Guatemalan Elected US Senate

- First Libertarian Elected to US Senate

Main issues:

- Rolling Back Regime Change to reduce new

Instability abroad

- Ending the drug war and the overcriminalization and violence that comes with it

- Increasing families disposable incomes and ability to save with tax reforms and reforming the policy drivers of inflation in healthcare, housing and education

- increasing visibility of Transgender issues and using the pulpit to bring attention to suicide, homelessness, and structural unemployment within the transgender community (have very close transgender issues, so this is more a personal thing than a policy issue)

Economic Policy Proposals:

- Rainy Day Account: rolling IRAs, HSAs, Coverdells into one tax favored savings account for all of life's events such as Unemployment, education, retirement, healthcare, parental leave, etc.

- The America Corp: a new corporate designation with 0% corporate tax rate but requires all assets and employees be in the US and that employees vote for one member of the board of directors to give labor more of a seat in corporate governance.

- 20% flat tax: instead of a complex tax code and complex web of aid programs, have a 20% flat tax with a refundable tax credit that will provide aid to anyone for anything. The amount of the tax credit amount changes with age (25k 18-26,65+ - 10k 27-64)

Interesting facts:

- Son of a immigrant from Guatemala in which regime change created instability in the 1950s which led to decades of civil wars and dictators and has contributed to the frustrations over the border (stability abroad effects border security, so regime change is very much against the countries national interests)

- parents are divorced so mainly raised by mother who after divorced lived in poverty working multiple part time jobs, going to school, raising two kids but worked her way to the middle class by the time I was 18 and has been my inspiration for my belief that anything is possible with hard work and determination

- grew up in suburban CT, went to school in Rural Ohio, and has lived in urban NYC so has experience the different setting Americans live in

On January 23, there was a school shooting in our home state. On February 14, 17 people were killed in yet another

If you are ready to take action, consider doing one of the following things: 

  • text ACT to 64433 to join Moms Demand Action
  • host a conversation in your community about the threat of violence (agree in advance about whether you'd like to discuss gun control provisions or not) 
  • contact your elected official to express your insistence on measures to combat gun violence  

Post-note: 

At the top of the episode, we cite the statistic from EveryTown that there have been 18 school shootings in 2018. This statistic has been criticized today by, among others, the Washington Post. EveryTown uses an expansive definition of school shooting to encompass every time a gun has discharged live rounds on school property. We encourage you to judge the meaning and importance of this statistic for yourself.

In this episode, we briefly take a look at the McCain and Ayotte
Senate races before diving into Election Reform.  We talk
about first-past-the-post voting in the primaries and the general
election, the primary calendar, and the electoral college.
 And, of course, no discussion of election reform is complete
without a little campaign finance (spoiler: we almost subtitled
this episode, "Beth Says Unpopular Things") and gerrymandering
conversation.  In The Heels, in honor of National Poetry
Month, we share two of our favorites.

Pardoning Joe Arpaio, North Korea, Hurricane Harvey, and Sex Addiction

Podcast cover
Read more

As our country continues to feel divisive and unstable, it can be helpful to focus on our shared struggles. Today, our listener, Aubrey, shares her story and offers a nuanced perspective on sex addiction. In the Pearls we discuss President Trump's decision to pardon Joe Arpaio, North Korea's latest missile test, and the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey. 

You can receive lots more nuance by becoming a supporter of Pantsuit Politics. We hope you'll check out our bonus episodes, blog posts, and videos.

The Pearls

The White House took the concept of a Friday night news dump to new heights over the weekend. We discuss the implications of President Trump's decision to pardon Sherriff Joe Arpaio and what we didn't know about Arpaio. In addition to inflaming racial tensions, the pardon could also impact Robert Mueller's investigation

After the President claiming during his Phoenix rally that North Korea has started to respect the United States, North Korea launched three short-range ballistic missiles. This news comes as the President signed a directive banning transgender military service

Although Sebastian Gorka's bizarre departure from the White House made some headlines, we're a little tired of pretending that people AROUND the President are the problem. 

We also discuss the Kasick/Hickenlooper Unity Ticket 2020.

We send our thoughts to all impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Here is the before and after video Sarah discussed.

Beth complimented our friend Haley Stevens, who is running for Congress in Michigan. Sarah complimented Governor of Tennessee Bill Haslam and his position on free community college. 

The Suit 

Aubrey wrote to us when Anthony Weiner was making headlines to say that she feels sex addiction requires a nuanced discussion. Aubrey's husband is a sex addict, and Aubrey knew this when she married him. As she says, he's her person, and she married him on purpose. Sex addiction makes their marriage complicated, and they are both seeking professional support as they work their way through a struggle more common than we might believe. 

The Heels 

Sarah describes her blissful experience in a Korean spa. Beth discusses strategies for better organizing her life.

National Domestic Violence Hotline Resource:

Might you be experience domestic violence? Consider the following. Does your partner ever...

  • Insult, demean or embarrass you with put-downs?
  • Control what you do, who you talk to or where you go?
  • Look at you or act in ways that scare you?
  • Push you, slap you, choke you or hit you?
  • Stop you from seeing your friends or family members?
  • Control the money in the relationship? Take your money or Social Security check, make you ask for money or refuse to give you money?
  • Make all of the decisions without your input or consideration of your needs?
  • Tell you that you’re a bad parent or threaten to take away your children?
  • Prevent you from working or attending school?
  • Act like the abuse is no big deal, deny the abuse or tell you it’s your own fault?
  • Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?
  • Intimidate you with guns, knives or other weapons?
  • Attempt to force you to drop criminal charges?
  • Threaten to commit suicide, or threaten to kill you?

If you answered ‘yes’ to even one of these questions, you may be in an unhealthy or abusive relationship. Don’t hesitate to chat or call us (1-800-799-7233) if anything you read raises a red flag about your own relationship or that of someone you know.
