She is doing fine you know apartment he's got a limo and now -- is why isn't.
You know I couldn't tell you got -- -- -- don't.
You're right well you say even thought you -- coming forward -- losing your own political views and human posting stuff on FaceBook and you think the two party system is is wrong right what he wanted to what your idea.
Well you know -- know that there are there's been people on both sides of the I don't know and and Smart people.
But you know for the sake of my own kids I'm about.
Fed up with this -- the -- we seem to have nothing getting done.
I'm I don't know -- it's time for a third party or not but it some capacity you that would reform.
The parties we or.
Well we have a Libertarian Party they never seem to make any headway in terms electing people solidly don't have third party's right.
Yeah and that's true.
I'm trying something new because I don't think that.
There are enough people out there that there -- -- Libertarian Party curiously and then and you know they got great ideas student.
What's wrong with -- Republican Party.
-- my own problems with Republican Party have been in Alaska.
What some of the corruption that was happening.
You know in our own legislature appeared and they got -- Dropping my affiliation a few years ago.
You know -- actually independent which he probably surprised a lot of people right now.
Here I would probably or conservative the right.
-- and -- interpret and would you think of the Alaska independence party think that Todd Palin.
And spent some time visiting for example and if they're still active or not.
Well I've got completely blown out of proportion and people tried to accuse.
-- part of some group was trying to.
We'll see from the from the union which in which that would that would group.
But that was another party in Alaska.
Yeah I'm not in the independent party.
Independent I would have preferred to them to vote for the person -- both.
Quote quote -- -- ultimately.
Right would would you ever run for office yourself -- and wanted to.
I don't know what it is good financing its own sister went -- -- who needs this right.
Oh my gosh you know.
The way that -- You know the distorted her record.
You know people wouldn't believe it.
That's one of the reasons -- That -- wrote the book in the first place what bothers me you know we wanted to set the record straight promote promote and so we grew up.
If so what.
Is the path -- of that -- get from here to there you think.
Well you know these.
Emergency you get the word I got these thoughts in my head for a long time.
Didn't people -- actually worked together -- -- both sides and you know we've got a lot of ideological differences obviously.
Probably wouldn't start look at that big future.
Amen and I was thinking about yesterday I don't think -- about how good the Alabama football team to form a national championship.
And you look at.
Locker room -- -- probably under different guys and they.
-- -- -- -- -- -- What was different beliefs.
But they have one goal in front of them and rebel leaders -- going to bring them together and focus on that one.
Exactly goal you know work hard to do it and I think the goal right now is -- -- -- -- economy that's -- that's.
Don't you think sometimes personal animosity against the -- experiences in terms of your -- there and you felt the people or sometimes -- you're.
But -- you've certainly got people who don't work with the president with pres Obama because they don't like them.
Sometimes personality gets in the way of politics right.
-- When -- -- some way but.
And -- what we don't have to keep our you know life in the big picture.
That was one of the hardest things for me and you know progress my element to -- when we watched.
The critics of apartments but our serves so viciously.
-- they didn't really know who she was no they didn't understand when she was governor of Alaska.
She -- wildly popular because she works so hard.
To bring both sides of the aisle together get the job -- you know that's all -- that particular.
You know it didn't matter if you're Republican or Democrat but we've got work to -- a little outside the government want to cut spending we -- you.
You know utilize our natural resources do whatever we can't jump start the content you don't.
You wrote a piece and your FaceBook pages to the American political system to mass is that I could get into the reasons this is happening.
But I don't think -- -- change -- thing Warner some of those reasons do you think.
I think that it.
What -- the victories in -- I'm Rand Paul talked about it too.
Simple term limit issue and I know that.
People aren't going to be very soon on.
I won't get rid of leadership that's been established for.
For many many years because there's knowledge and that leadership.
But there's also.
-- kind of corruption I guess.
You don't want to attain certain dementia sort -- you do want -- if you want to run a community.
It it seems like it's all about the length of time you Serbs who have not been.
-- Richard T think you do away -- so have term limits -- what -- -- Well.
-- I don't want to throw out all that depth knowledge -- used over the years so I suggested that that we have term limits that you.
Told -- representatives.
-- two or three consecutive terms -- sort out a couple of children.
-- my argument that is I'll -- I want the right.
To reelect my representative I think that person doing good job I don't want to be denied that right and if enough people don't like that person they can have a primary challenge.
There are still in the end there's still ways to get -- -- out of office.
By -- like the job they're doing.
Why understand that but I think that a lot of people they go back and me and they -- elected established.
Politicians because they know that they've got the -- they've got leadership positions and I don't wanna start from scratch you you know with.
Every -- and -- -- need to -- changes rather than not term limits is change the way the house -- senate rules word potential warning chairmanships so that.
People are an entrenched once or again maybe that's a way to do it.
I think that might be great idea.
Not to hold another -- I want the right to vote for someone if I like them but maybe the problem is a system once -- inside Washington.
Yeah yeah you're exactly right that's.
Rather than another viable option that but I think we should explorer now I know you don't know I just don't want to lose sight that.
Know that we are one of the greatest country on her.
And and it seems like it is deadlocked as you.
Why don't -- this labeled crazy when I say this and I'm probably drive you nuts but I'm not sure the greatest country -- I really don't know that to be true.
Is that and how you measure I don't know -- the metric is for that we start wars we shouldn't start.
We have we -- we torture people.
We -- all kinds of things that I think are wrong I don't know where the greatest country on earth may you know it's easy to say that but I really question whether that's true.
Probably drive -- -- when -- say that government.
Well -- No you know you've been out of the country and traveled -- other places yeah that's what makes you really appreciate what we do -- out here.
What I have an effect I was -- I was in virgin Korda last week on vacation.
Which is a British.
-- you know protectorate and they have no guns there.
Because -- only nineteen and Britain are no -- I think that's a much better way to live and human outspoken on the gun issue.
And you and I probably differ on this but you think the answer is more guns I think the answer is less and I -- -- we're having the national dialogue.
Well there are ever so that mission was to you know more -- -- just.
Know I was -- in Alaska and -- gambling and and don't devote some part of our lives.
-- had going to a place like.
No no what to go to New York City and that was my first time there have been a week there honor on the street.
I can see you know being raised in a big urban area like that.
What people would see -- know that they have that while you know who need to billion.
It and what.
You know if you go outside of the city he see that when people in the country don't depend on bottom.
And -- on a mission to -- -- -- -- We were ever to be invaded.
You can you can bet that there would be doing but you know registered owners all around the country.
I -- -- boot -- then went -- -- invaded -- we're not -- individuals with guns are going to be able to stave off an invasion.
From a an army.
Just individual hunters.
-- individual people with guns is never going to be -- that flight and army it's never gonna happen.
-- I would never work.
And they say that during the revolution here.
But that was a whole different set of circumstances I was an organization that was organized only they were organized if you don't you think individuals in their homes with guns.
Sitting on their porch where -- rifle whether -- going to be able to battle an army that comes and.
Well you know you're talking about tens of millions into partners -- And -- -- spread out all over the country they're gonna do a lot of damage.
Well you know I think it remains to be seen I hope let's hope it never happens and I doubt we'll ever be in that position I do appreciate the guy like chuck I thank you so much going on the program tonight.
