The Right Take

74 EpisodesProduced by therighttakeguysWebsite

Here, on The Right Take, Eric Lendrum and Jacob Grandstaff analyze the issues and motivations that define the internationalist, imperial, and oligarchical nature of the United States, how we got here, and how we can fight back.


How California Became Paradise Lost


For this deep dive episode, Jacob and Eric take a closer look at the major reasons why California - once considered one of the bastions of the Republican Party - has fallen so far to become the leftist hellhole that it is now: From the California GOP’s failures to capitalize on anti-immigration sentiment in the 1990s, to Schwarzenegger’s support for gay marriage, and the passage of a proposition to change California’s primary system to a “jungle primary/top-two system.” They explain how each mistake led to each other and contributed to the state’s downfall, and how we can learn from California’s example to avoid making the same mistakes at the national level.
