Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Larry Elder about his running for governor in the California recall election, the frightening statistics of failing schools and the housing market, how Republican governors can enact rapid change in blue states, and the real reason why Democrats are desperate to use systemic racism to get the black vote. First, Larry discusses how environmental regulations drive up the cost of living in blue states like California. The powerful unions, and the prohibitive cost of environmental compliance create a rising cost of living and cost of doing business that caused CEO Magazine to put California in last place for the worst states for business. He also shares some frightening statistics about the test scores of public schools, the need for school reform and taking on the teacher's unions. Larry also explains how the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) has caused a massive housing shortage. The low home inventory feeds into skyrocketing prices and a lack of affordable housing. He also explains how well intentioned policies like prop 47 that reduced criminal penalties have backfired and caused crime to skyrocket. Next, Larry discusses how a Republican Governor could make radical changes in a one party blue state like California by utilizing the line item veto and declaring a state of emergency in the areas that are failing the most like schools, housing and homelessness. Larry also discusses the problems with political fundraising, setting up political action committees and the unfair incumbent advantage that Gavin Newsom has for political campaign fundraising. Larry shares the horror stories he’s heard about the effects of lockdowns and how it’s been especially hard for fatherless sons who had a father figure in a coach or a teacher at school. He explains the importance of fathers and how welfare has increased the amount of children born out of wedlock which has been a disaster in causing black violence. He describes how the rise in black voters for Trump has worried Democrats to the point where their claims of systemic racism seem to be a desperate attempt to get black votes through fear. He points out that policies like supporting school choice would give black families better options when it comes to their children’s education. Despite this Democrats fight school choice and instead decide to favor teacher’s unions.
