Austin Petersen and Jack Stocker host the Freedom Report podcast to discuss the death and rebirth of American Conservatism. An article shared by Senator Rand Paul triggered an angry response from neoconservatives, and adulation from libertarians and Trump supporters. The article, read by Petersen in entirety, chronicles the change in policies from the Reagan/Bush years to the new Republican Party under Trump.
