The Car Insurance Analogy That Puts Health Insurance Into Perspective

Should you be able to drive without car insurance? Yes, in some states you can. If you have a major car wreck --- without insurance --- should you be able to call the insurance company from the crash site to buy it then and there?

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: Look, the best way to explain this -- the best way to explain what's happening to our insurance companies is this: Would anyone think it's fair to say to an auto insurance company, I'm not going to buy any auto insurance unless I'm in a wreck.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: So when the police comes up and your car has been totaled and the other guy is being taken to the hospital --

PAT: Now you call Allstate and say, hey, I need a policy.

GLENN: I need a policy. And they can't turn you down for the wreck you've just had.

PAT: Okay. And they pay for it. That's exactly what's happening with medical insurance.

GLENN: Exactly. How does Allstate survive if everyone gets to do that?

PAT: They don't. They don't.

STU: Well, I don't know, if you have a law that mandates everyone use Allstate --

JEFFY: Thank you. You have to have auto insurance though. I do have to have auto insurance.

STU: Well, and it's funny. That's what the left says. You have to have auto insurance. First of all, it's not true in every state. But still, the bottom line, you're right. It makes no sense if you can get it after the fact.

And while you have incredible compassion for people in those positions, you have to find a different way to handle it and deal with that issue, rather than forcing it on everybody.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Big Tech isn't making it easy for organizations outside of the left's coalition to survive. Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer for Parler — the social media platform now throttled by Amazon, Apple, and Google. She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
