Snake Oil Salesman

I'll be honest, I find it quite unfortunate, that we have a political system that was created "for the people, by the people", yet sit back and watch the very people they represent suffer. The rich get richer, while the poor gets screwed. Yet, we are told, if we vote for these individuals, they will "fix" the problem within our country. We vote. They get elected. Nothing changes. Cycle repeats itself. Instead of finding viable solutions to the toxic relationship, we instead turn on each other. While turning on each other, we create echo chambers of think tanks whose sole purpose is to make money. We fight. They profit. All the while selling on the notion, that if we truly want change, we have to align with their ways of thinking, buy their books, buy their merchandise, because they only have the "solutions" to fix what's wrong with our society. You buy, their books, their merchandise and realize, there is no cure. Just a collection of word vomit and false ideologies. We get mad. They continue to profit. Cycle continues. The Snake Oil Salesman prevails again.

About the Podcast

Guys of the Round Table
The podcast that talks about life as it happens.
Guys of the Round Table is a podcast that tries to speak on current events with a fair and objective point of view. Here we try to abstain from the "hot take" narrative that everyone goes after. We don't try to demean anyone or their beliefs. Here we try to understand the underlying issues of ideals and try to figure out a solution to them (if there is one). We will talk about anything from sports, politics, relationships, family, religion and a host of other topics. Bottom line, we try to keep an open line of communication to what is going on in the world around us. We are dedicated to learning and growing. Above all else, try to impart a little sanity in a crazy world.
