Boy, politics really has gotten hideous, hasn’t it? And protests seem a lot more violent than they were a couple of years ago. Are things getting worse? Could the U.S.A be on the road to a second civil war?

Robert Evans says ‘Yes!’ and by the time you’ve finished listening to ‘It Could Happen Here’, you will too.

Extremely biased but interesting and thought provoking

I wholeheartedly disagree with a plethora of your comments on politics and your hypocrisy, saying we need to deny the right a platform while allowing the left to essentially run the world. You call for solidarity yet also call for a war on the wealthy. While you are an extremely biased communist, the show is still thought provoking and interesting.

The 4th episode was the breaking point, though. Your “words of encouragement and solutions” basically say that anyone with a strong right wing opinion gets thrown out of politics and the left convinces the moderate right wing to unite with them over a common enemy. Ignoring people who disagree is not a solution.

Good but very biased

Some interesting ideas but he seemingly cannot present an unbiased viewpoint. He seems to be much more supportive of protestors rather than any form of stable government.

Far too one-sided for me

Robert Evans admits to being left leaning, but claims he's going to present facts in an unbiased manner. He absolutely fails at doing that, painting the left as peace-loving victims and the right as belligerent aggressors. I do agree that there is potential for a second civil war, but not for the reasons given in this podcast.
