    Don't worry, we're not going to debate Roe v. Wade again. But we will analyze some of the fallout, with Biden calling for peaceful protest, progressives like Elizabeth Warren calling to end the Supreme Court as we know it, and AOC calling for the justices to be IMPEACHED. Yes, seriously.    Then, we analyze Arizona's new law that may just be the biggest win for school choice of all time. Finally, we break down the Biden's administration's new anti-nicotine policies and explain how they could, paradoxically, ultimately lead to MORE needless deaths from lung cancer.    Brad BASED Article on Court-Packing: https://www.based-politics.com/2022/06/27/mad-about-abortion-elizabeth-warren-calls-for-the-destruction-of-the-supreme-court-as-we-know-it/ Hannah BASED Article on Arizona School Choice: https://www.based-politics.com/2022/06/27/doug-ducey-enacts-major-school-choice-initiative-in-arizona/ Brad BASED Article on Biden's Deadly Nicotine Bans: https://www.based-politics.com/2022/06/23/2-reasons-why-bidens-new-nicotine-bans-could-have-lethal-consequences/   Register now for YAL's Rev 22: https://yaliberty.org/revolution/

    How to Achieve Meaningful Political Change

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 1, 2022 29:56

    In the six years that I've been in politics full-time I've helped overturn the death penalty in three states, passed a school choice program, overturned an income tax, passed numerous workforce development and re-entry reforms in the criminal justice system, passed healthcare reforms like protections for direct primary care and the repeal of certificate of need laws, and overturned several occupational licenses. The number one question I get from my audience about all of this is "how"? I'm passionate about teaching others the tools they need to achieve large-scale political change. So on this month's episode of BASED, I'm taking a different approach. Instead of looking into a public policy, we're going to look at the ways you can impact those policies. Join me as I discuss my theory of change, and let's get to work.
