Paul Young interview with Congressman John Rarick about falling out with the Johnson Administration. Rarick states the Johnson Administration has had a falling out with him and the people who sent him to Congress, people who were democrats all of their lives. Rarick says that the people feel that there are trends from the current administration, which for a short time may have been beneficial to the common man, but are now clearly leading to a national socialism, a government that rules and regulates over every facet of their lives. Rarick states that if there was any fallout, it was because those who are either advising or are close to the present administration have left the party of the people. They seem to be insulated from knowing how far and when to stop.
