In honor of the passing of Phyllis Schlafly, Home Front presents this encore edition of an interview with one of the last conservative icons. Phyllis Schlafly was the founder of Eagle Forum. She was a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. She was a leader of the pro-family movement since 1972, when she started her national volunteer organization called Eagle Forum. In a ten-year battle, Mrs. Schlafly led the pro-family movement to victory over the principal legislative goal of the radical feminists, called the Equal Rights Amendment. An articulate and successful opponent of the radical feminist movement, she appeared in debate on college campuses more frequently than any other conservative.

Are you one of the 11-15 % who thinks our congress is doing a good job?

Does it matter what our elected officials say during the campaign season if they don’t keep any of their promises after the election? So…What can we do about it?

Solutions are available and you will hear about them on this edition of Home Front.

Who Killed the American Family

Who Killed the American Family? That’s the title of the book we discuss with author, Phyllis Schlafly on today’s episode. Phyllis invited me into her radio station to delve into the details of what has ruined the peace and serenity of the family for our entire country.

Don’t think you are spared just because you are doing fine. We’ve all been affected in one way or another. If you are a taxpayer or live on the planet with other people, you are affected.

Who’s going to teach the next generation?

Shaunti Feldhahn – Author of “The Good News About Marriage”

Recently I was invited to join Phyllis Schlafly on her radio show, Eagle Forum Live.  We had a lot of fun interviewing Shaunti Feldhahn as we discussed her newest book called, The Good News About Marriage.

We’ve all heard divorce statists that just aren’t true. Our guest, Shaunti Feldhahn, comes to inform us of the positive news that the divorce rate is not anywhere near the 50% that is frequently reported.  According to our own census numbers more like 72% are still married to their original spouse.  Many of those who are no longer married had a happy marriage for decades and their spouse is now passed away. Todays episode will inspire, encourage and contains some of the highlights of that interview we did on Eagle Forum Live.

She is known as a “Conservative Icon”.  This photo was taken when Phyllis Schlafly did a fund raiser for one of my campaigns.   We had a memorable night with Martin Duggan and Bill Federer and many were inspired.

Phyllis Schlafly became famous over her efforts to reform the Republican Party with her first book, A Choice, Not an Echo.  

Today, the GOP “Kingmakers” are still working against the success of many grassroots candidates.  We have won a few small battles, yet it appears we are losing the war.  Back in 1964 when the book was written, TSA had not been invented and we Americans would never tolerate strangers groping us if we want to get on an airplane.  Social Security was a retirement program for those who paid into it.  People expected privacy with their medical records and e-mail communications.  The Democrats of 40 years ago were acting like the Republicans of today.  “The American Spirit” was stronger and more unified.  We had more publicly held common morality.
