Funding Students, Not Systems – School Choice in America – with Scott Jensen [Ep. 106]

Taming Govzilla – with Steve Moore – [Ep.105]

1/12/2022
Monsters are often thought of as abnormal, fear-inducing creatures that are overly large, have a threatening presence, and cannot be easily tamed. The monstrosity of our federal government could be similarly described. Heavy handed unconstitutional mandates, burdensome regulations, bloated spending bills, and a disregard for equality under the law have brought fear and trepidation to many citizens. How can we tame the behemoth of Big Government and protect economic prosperity and liberty? In...

Rescuing and Defending Equality (Part 1) – with Daniel Lennington [Ep. 103]

1/3/2022
Equality is a hallmark of our society. Our Constitution provides for true equality for all American citizens, regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, and financial or health status. However, equal opportunity does not guarantee equal outcomes, and we help people the most when we provide opportunities for all to thrive, not just a select few. Many current government policies are not based on equal treatment under the law, and freedom fighting lawyers are valiantly working to rescue...

Not On Our Watch! Simple Steps to Protecting Our Republic – with Cleta Mitchell [Ep. 99]

12/1/2021
Free and fair elections are vital to the stability of our nation. Ideas have consequences and policy matters. Elections have consequences because elections drive policy. Compromised elections can have disastrous consequences. Transparency, accountability, and accuracy are essential to ensuring every legally cast vote is counted and every illegally cast vote is dismissed. How can we protect the security of our election process and make sure votes are counted accurately and according to law?...

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...

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. Businesses and consumers are frustrated with seemingly endless back-orders, delays, and price increases. 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.

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.

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...
