Two weeks away from the Presidential election

Over the weekend, it really begin to hit Glenn that the election is just two short weeks away — this is it.

"I mean, it's been a non-stop campaign for three years now," he told listeners this morning.

"We were on this bandwagon with Washington while George Bush was President. Now we have the opportunity to change the landscape of Washington," he added.

…or at least begin to change the landscape of Washington. It won't be finished after a Romney presidency, but it's a chance to put the country back on the right path. There are some, mostly Libertarians, who don't believe that Romney is enough — they just claim to want to let it all collapse. Glenn disagrees.

He actually referred to himself as a "progressive Libertarian," noting that if that these individuals are suggesting America hand the keys of the United States government over to a man who won't let the country collapse. Rather, he will transform it before allowing it to collapse.

"If you think those with power won't use that as an opportunity to seize more power, you're out of your mind," he told listeners.

So what do voters do who aren't particularly happy with either candidate?

"You vote for the best option out of the two."

While many may say that this is the same thing we've been doing for year (and that's true), America is more awake now than it has been in a long time. The Tea Party and grassroots movement started under George W. Bush, not President Obama, and they are going to hold Mitt Romney accountable for the promises he makes and the principals on which he ran for office.

"What we have to do is have the same conversation in the country that progressives had with communists around the turn of the century, and that's 'look, we agree with your idea of international law. We agree with your idea of big government subsidies — we agree with all of that. We agree that business is bad it becomes corrupt and everything else, but as communists you want revolution — we don't.' This is where the word progressives comes from," Glenn explained. "We will progress towards these things by making steps — little by little. That's what conservatives and libertarians haven't come to terms with yet."

Glenn explained that America isn't going to be able to fix its problems over night. It's not possible to simply turn off the giant machine of government that progressives have built. There will have to be compromises — not in principals — but in policies, to begin to make positive steps back in the right direction.

"Thomas Payne and George Washington — both Patriots — but they both made concessions along the way.  They both did what had to be done, and they did it to move forward because they knew they would lose the country — it's a very fragile thing. You can't lose it. Progressives understood this, Glenn said. "If Mitt Romney wins, we have to stand.  We have to be true to our own principles that we said we believed in. even when it hurts us."

The country is just two weeks away from making this giant decision. Tonight is the last debate before the election, and could play a large role is helping undecided voters make their final decision. The debate's focus is on foreign policy, and with everything going on in the Middle East it's hard to imagine how the president will prepare for this.

Likely, the president will just try to paint the holes in his foreign policy that Mitt Romney will point out as lies. He'll claim to have brought the world together, that his policies have worked and that the image of America around the world is better than it was.

"If Romney's smart, he realizes he has more here, possibly, more here than on the economic front," Glenn told listeners. "He's got a home run on the economic front, and all he needs is one more hit and this guy's going down."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
