How many times do you go to vote for a candidate and get shocked by all the other questions on the ballot? On this episode, our goal is to help you understand some of those sneaky amendments before you get another surprise in the voting booth.
We interview former State Representative, Carl Bearden. I met Carl many years ago when he was on the St. Charles County Council and I was on the O’Fallon Board of Aldermen. Then he moved to the Missouri House of Representative and two years later I joined him there. He went on to be the chairman of the budget committee and the Speaker Pro Tem and now he is a lobbyist for United for Missouri.
On our show today, we bring back our Locke and Smith expert, Tom Martz, to help you understand what happened with the common core legislation, how badly the congress is off topic, the reason an Article 5 Convention is a bad idea and the right way to do photo id.
Elections have consequences. Some of those consequences are more severe if few people come out to vote and especially if the people who come out are not legitimately qualified to vote.
More than 32 other states have Photo ID laws, yet Missouri doesn’t. Regardless of your political party, shouldn’t we all agree that protecting the process is critical? Voter fraud has been happening since voting began.
