And yes, you can check out the one and only Dr. Ron Paul live on November 5 through November 7, five days 30 expert speakers all right. And folks, let's move forward here talking about revolution 2022. And yeah, I'm pumped up as you can tell, because I just finished for awesome days down in Orlando, Florida. And I got to see first of all, I got to see so many of you, pointing at you. Here. As you can see here on YouTube, the audience of The Brian Nichols Show you guys were phenomenal, especially you young Liberty warriors, the 1000 plus of you, who joined us down in Orlando, Florida here the past couple of days, it was so exciting to see the energy, not just from The Brian Nichols Show audience but also just the energy across the board, but specifically you the audience, I wanted to just start out saying thank you for stopping by the table, I had a table the dining hall, for folks who didn't see me there by chance I was they're given us some bumper stickers and we had some swag that we we had some discount codes for some awesome new swag, which we're going to show in a little bit. But what an awesome, awesome conversation I had with a couple of our listeners here in the show who I've heard real stories about taking the ideas that we talked about here on the show, and bring it to real people and actually having some real tangible success that makes my heart just you know, like the Grinch and the Grinch. How the Grinch Stole Christmas, how it inflates three times to larger. So sure that was me. And it's not because I have high blood pressure, I swear. But talking about the fact that we are actually seeing not just successes in bringing our ideas that we talked about here in the show to your average person in real life. But that also those people are now starting to join our movement. I had probably three or four people just in the span of a couple of hours when we had our one of our first main days there come up to me and say I'm brand new here. I've never really been at the liberty movement stuff. I've never really learned anything about liberty. I just got involved in 2020 2021. I wonder why. And I'll tell you why. Here's why a lot of them were radicalized. Just like a lot of you listening here in The Brian Nichols Show over the past few years with the COVID insanity. And that's something that I think we're going to see more frequently is that those folks who are starting to ask more questions, they're going to be attending more of these events. And having folks out there like you who did attend the events and are taking what we're doing here at The Brian Nichols Show you guys are the ones having success, bring our ideas and actually bringing them to your real people and bringing them into real life and that's what Young Americans for Liberty does. Right. One of the things that I talked about the ideas of liberty, you know, being in good hands first of all, the success that y'all is having is just amazing 270 state legislators elected for you from Young Americans for Liberty, and they are getting policy into action that's making real impact right now. The concealed carry that took place. So I think it was July 1 of this year. That was passed by and led by one of Young Americans for Liberty. He's endorsed candidates, and entirely because he has concealed carry bill went through that park or the Parkland the the green Greenfield shooting, the mall shooting, that that gentleman there, stop that shooting, because a few days in after that ball, that bill got passed, you had this this hero save how many lives and truly how many lives would have been lost. We're not for the fact that we had this guy there ready to defend them all with his his weapon, and only because that bill went through just a few days earlier, and it was thanks to Young Americans for Liberty legislators. That's huge guys. So number one shares to Young Americans for Liberty, hearing the success stories of policy, but then also just the the energy that's in the room and being able to help show folks how to channel that energy effectively. And the speakers there that were able to help show us how to effectively channel that energy. I mean, from day one, you had phenomenal speakers like spike Cohen, Dave Smith, Glenn Jacobs, Kennedy, oh, my goodness, oh, yeah. Ron Paul, Ron Paul was there and what an amazing, amazing energy that Ron Paul still in his 80s can bring to a convention of 20 some odd year old kids, it's it truly, just something to behold. And if you get the chance, please, you know, and I'm not being morbid here by any stretch, but we only get so many years on this planet. So with our amazing friend there, Dr. Paul, please take as much advantage as you can, with the time we have and enjoy moments like this, because these moments are truly what gets people like me, I hope other people out there as well fired up to see that there are so many young folk who are excited to actually get these ideas that we talked about, and frankly, that I would say your average person is asking questions about but now actually help bridge that in the political world. That's where Young Americans for Liberty has a lot of success. And also, by the way, talking about Young Americans for Liberty Reb 2022, had a great time hosting the future liberty, conversation. It was a panel held by the Florida Mises caucus and I was asked to moderate that. And it had some great great speakers on that Dave Smith, Spike Cohen, Michael Heiser, Clint Russell and Hector Roos. And it was a great panel to discuss that, because you had so many different perspectives. But across the board, everybody agreed everybody was on board with the fact that yeah, we're winning. And we're seeing the fact that we're winning, because, number one, we're having conversations, and we're controlling conversations in a way we've never been able to do before, specifically by utilizing the alternative forms of media, but also by using more mass forms of media, but you're seeing it across the board, from a political standpoint, and a cultural standpoint, that the conversations are changing. And frankly, we're winning those conversations. And that's a great, great prospect for the future of liberty. And then just the overall gist takeaway across the board from Young Americans for Liberty, was that a lot of folks have entered into this movement with some trigger event, right? We talked about this in sales, there's a trigger event that happens where you start either searching for alternatives, or you start maybe figure like you start feeling that there's something that's going to happen that you're gonna start looking for alternatives. And in that trigger event, I'm hearing across the board, whether it was the COVID lockdowns, whether it was the you know, the election of Donald Trump, whether it was the January 6, protests, I heard that I promise, I did hear that. There were so many folks who said I left whatever I was to looking at a new way of doing something whether that's small L. Libertarian in a big art world, or just you know, a big L libertarian, but trying to use other means of you know, political activism or trying to bridge all those worlds together. There were folks from all different walks of life, who are bringing their new way of thinking, and, frankly, the excitement, the excitement to bring these ideas to other people. It's something I remember back when I first found these ideas that the desire to go out and just tell everybody, go tell your your mom, go tell your dad, go tell your best friend. And then after you tell a couple of 100 folks, and you realize that not everybody wants to have this conversation, then you kind of take a step back and you start to reevaluate best means of approach. And you know what, I'm so excited that these folks at Young Americans for Liberty, they're channeling their energy effectively, they're doing the things that are going to be successful and they're frankly going to have the success they're looking for because they're doing things differently. So my overall takeaway, two thumbs up kudos to the revolution 2022 team, they're over at yoga Because for liberty that those you guys did amazing work. I don't know how you do it. It's an incredible event. So much goes into logistics of planning. And by the way, if you've never been to the Gaylord over in Orlando this this place is massive, huge complex I think see packs been there in the past so it's it's a massive environment. And the Young Americans for Liberty team did a phenomenal job in coordinating things, any hiccups, they took care of it instantly. I have a little snafu with my room, boom taken care of in a heartbeat. So shout out to you guys. You guys did an amazing job. So thank you to Young Americans for Liberty. And thank you to everybody who stopped by the table and grabbed one of our don't hurt people don't take people's stuff, a bumper sticker if you got one of those bumper stickers, do me a favor, please take a picture with yourself with the bumper sticker.
