A Generational Legacy - with Linda J. Hansen [Ep.92]

10/15/2021
What type of legacy do you hope to leave? Will the actions you take today help to preserve freedom for the next generation? We all have a limited lifespan. What kind of impact do you hope to have on your family, employees, or others? We can use our time to grow in our relationship to God, to serve others, and to boldly stand up for the principles of truth, justice and liberty – or we can use our time to serve temporal gods of money, pleasure, or convenience. What will you choose? In this...

Every Town a Border Town – A National Security Risk – with Tom Homan [Ep.91]

10/7/2021
America has always been a welcoming nation. We are a melting pot of people from different countries, ethnicities, colors, and creeds who have flocked here for the freedom and opportunity our system of government has offered. In the past, immigrants were required to prove they would not become dependent on government; that they could work and become productive members of society. Immigrants were welcomed and our nation grew stronger with their presence. Our current open border policies are...

Constitutional Energy – with Tom Pyle [Ep.90]

Freedom. Liberty. Opportunity. All are dependent upon the rights set forth in our Constitution.

To protect our citizens with a strong military, to provide the best in health care, and to allow businesses and individuals to prosper, we must have dependable, affordable energy. What policies are important...

What Will You Do? – with Linda J. Hansen [Ep.89]

9/16/2021
If you are like most people, you may feel like America has been turned inside out, flipped upside down, and spun around in circles. The America you have known seems lost to lockdowns, mandates, travel and assembly restrictions, censorship, and government invasion (and even oversight) of our medical and economic privacy. Many cannot understand how it came to this so quickly. How could America, the beacon of freedom for the world, be tottering at the brink of collapse towards socialism? Change...

We Must Never Forget – We Are Americans – with Linda J. Hansen [Ep. 88]

9/9/2021
Freedom is never free, and at this point in our nation’s history we not only face enemies abroad, we face enemies within. There are those who want to divide us by race, class, gender, vaccination status, or political affiliation. We must not allow this to happen. A nation divided against itself cannot stand. As we did after the 9/11 attacks and as we have done so many times in our history, we must once again unite. We must put aside differences. We must pause to reflect on what makes America...

Protecting Consumer Freedom with Government Accountability – with Lindsey Stroud [Ep. 85]

8/18/2021
Government regulations and targeted taxes greatly affect the types of products, services, and prices businesses can offer to consumers.

In this episode, Linda interviews consumer advocate and policy expert, Lindsey Stroud, who works to provide...

Uniting Voices for Freedom – with Kevin Fobbs [Ep. 84]

8/9/2021
Free speech is a hallmark of America’s basic freedoms. Our First Amendment has fostered a culture of curiosity, growth, innovation, and intellectual advancement. Our Founders recognized the ability to speak, write, and correspond freely would help to preserve and expand freedom and prosperity. We have enjoyed freedom to question, debate, and disagree. Recently, however, we are seeing foreboding signs of censorship and communication oligarchy. How should we respond? Listen as Kevin Fobbs,...

In Life or Death the Taxman Cometh – with Steve Moore [Ep. 83]

8/3/2021
Our nation’s economy is in a free fall. Rising debt, soaring inflation, escalating prices, and increased tax rates have all been caused by major policy changes, especially at the federal level. We can never spend our way to prosperity, but judging by the national debt, it seems elected officials disagree. Proposals to raise the Death Tax to unprecedented levels threaten the livelihoods and legacies of all Americans, forcing family members to sell homes, farms, and family businesses just to...

It’s Elementary! Education Policies Can Help or Hinder – with E.J. Antoni [Ep. 80]

7/14/2021

Antoni, Economist at Texas Public Policy Foundation, to discuss educational ideologies that have positively or negatively impacted our nation.

The Melting Pot – Are Current Policies Fair for All? – with Susan Tully [Ep. 78]

6/30/2021
Do you have a lock on the door to your house, car, or office? Do you have a fence around your yard or a security guard at your business? Would you be willing to remove security measures to allow anyone – or everyone – to enter and use your property in whatever way they choose, at your expense? Some of the people who would answer yes to the personal security questions are the same people who demand that America have open borders with little to no screening and with pathways for dependency and...

How do we restore a nation? What can business leaders or individuals do to stem the rushing tide of unrest, division, depression, suicide, addiction, human trafficking, and abuse?

Legal for All or Legal for None – with Cleta Mitchell [Ep. 75]

6/12/2021
Laws matter. Civilized societies cannot have people robbing, raping, or murdering at their will. Lawlessness brings disaster and pain. Devastating results occur in areas where crime is allowed to flourish. The majority of citizens appreciate the safety of appropriate law and order, which allows us to live freely. Laws apply to more than just violent crime, and their purposes are to protect the Constitutional rights of American citizens. We elect our lawmakers, and we must have the utmost...

Freedom is Never Free [Ep. 74]

Freedom is never free. Many have given their lives in defense of freedom. We grieve with their loved ones and honor their sacrifice. How can we honor the fallen by fighting for freedom today?
