In this edition of “As I SEA It”, my guest Tom Dioro and I discuss various topics including my trip to Ensenada, the Republican presidential debate, great governance, Ukraine, inflation and interest rates, Putin’s Russia, and the increasing tribalism in America. I share my impression of different Republican candidates and express my support for Ukraine, criticizing President Biden’s handling of the situation.
I also discuss the impact of inflation and interest rates on the economy and predict that the Federal Reserve may lower rates in the second half of next year. The conversation concludes with a discussion on the tribalism in America and the importance of national identity.
In this podcast conversation, we discuss the concept of the “forgotten man” and how it has been utilized by different political parties throughout history. We also discuss how Donald Trump has reinvented the concept of the common man, focusing not just on economic terms but also on people who feel angered and robbed of their national identity. I argue that the Republican Party should embrace this idea and prioritize the needs of the forgotten person rather than the Chamber of Commerce.
The conversation then shifts to the left’s strategy of creating tribes based on factors such as race, gender, and sexual orientation, as opposed to solely focusing on economic factors. They argue that these factors are more permanent in nature and can be used to create more reliable tribal identities.
The conversation ends with some lighthearted banter about the weather and my experiences in Mexico so far.
