The Red Wave that Wasn’t

On this episode of Radio Rothbard, Tho Bishop and Ryan McMaken break down the results of this year’s midterms. American anxiety over inflation and crime failed to create the red wave many expected. While Republicans took back the House, and maybe the Senate, this year’s midterms underperformed traditional midterm elections. Tho and Ryan discuss why this is, as well as what a DeSantis victory might mean for a potential civil war with Trump.
