Who’s Counting? What Are They Counting? – with Cleta Mitchell [Ep.98]

11/25/2021
We all want our votes to count, whether we are deciding on what to have for dinner or who should represent us as elected officials. We provide opinions and feedback on surveys, polls, and in conversations, and we expect our voices to matter. We should expect the same when we share our opinions – our votes – for those that will lead us in government. In what ways can our votes be compromised? Who counts votes? What do they count? How do they count? How do we know our votes are secure? What...

Don’t Sit on the Sidelines – Get in the Game! – with Dr. Brad Bark [Ep. 97]

11/17/2021
Our nation is crying out for bold leaders who will stand for the principles that have made America great. However, too often when we see something that needs to be done, we think someone else should do it. Whether it is writing an important book, educating employees or others on policy issues, running for office in hopes of protecting freedom, or simply volunteering to help someone in need, it is easy to assume someone else will act rather than take action ourselves. We can be content to sit...

11/11/2021
Small businesses, many of them family-owned, are the backbone of our economy. They have experienced lockdowns, mask mandates, overbearing tax and regulatory burdens, supply chain issues, and labor shortages.

Linda’s guest, Steven Fettig, is the CFO of two family-owned manufacturing corporations in Wisconsin. They decided to stand for...

Avoid the High Cost of Low Prices - Make it in America! – with James Stuber [Ep.95]

11/3/2021
It is no secret that America is currently suffering from supply chain issues. Many store shelves are empty and needed items are hard to find.

They are even more frustrated with those in government responsible for preventing and alleviating the crisis. How did we get here and what can be done about it? In the past, consumers demanded lower prices, leading to many jobs being shipped to...

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]

9/29/2021
Freedom. Liberty. Opportunity. All are dependent upon the rights set forth in our Constitution. A culture that allows for freedom and human flourishing must provide national, economic, and health security. As technology has progressed, our need for reliable energy sources has increased. 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.

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...
