Charlie Rutherford joins us for a third installment of Political Discourse. Please go back and listen to the first two which are episodes 232 and 264 as well as Charlie’s personal history in Episode 13 if you’ve not yet had the opportunity. Charlie considers himself conservative if not a libertarian and I like to say I come from the left and try to be in the middle. Through those lenses, we discuss healthcare, immigration, the Paris climate accord, America’s role in global affairs, and tax reform vs. tax cuts, free speech, and of course cannabis. In effect, this is two people simply discussing policy from alternative points of view without yelling at each other.

It's Charlie Rutherford makes me.
Speaker 1: And you, uh, I come from the left. I try to be in the middle. And then what, what, how would you say your thing?
Speaker 4: I would say that I'm, especially as of late, uh, kind of, uh, um, I'm definitely conservative, but some of the thoughts that I might have on certain subjects could be libertarian. Uh, some of them, some of them might even be center, so, uh, but I would say that overall conservative. Got It.
Speaker 1: So you're not using. I'm not using the, like I'm not, I'm an independent and it doesn't sound like you're necessarily tying yourself to a party either.
Speaker 4: Uh, I will try myself. Probably the part of the Republican when it splits here in the next coming months based on everything that's going on.
Speaker 1: Oh, in all we have to remind everybody, these are your personal points of view, right? The seven is, has nothing to do with anything other than your personal point of view, right?

Speaker 1: All right, so, so let's, uh, let's talk about this. What do you mean the Republican Party is splitting wood? Who Knew?
Speaker 5: Okay.
Speaker 4: Is optimistic disposition rather, but there is a, you know, the fight right now between the establishment and the, uh, in the new and the conservative and the populist. And so, uh, the world might get their wish in a way they didn't want it, uh, granted by getting three parties, but two of them are going to be a, a, a split of the Republican Party. It just looks like that a little bit with stuff that's going on.
