All candidates like answering questions.  And if they don’t, they shouldn’t be candidates.

On our show today we give you a glimpse into what makes a candidate tick.  You can learn a lot about a candidate by asking simple questions about his life, philosophy and thoughts.  You’re going to enjoy this show.

Today we get to talk with Austin Petersen.  Austin ran for the nomination for President of the United States in 2016 on the Libertarian Party and is currently running for the  Republican nomination to the US Senate in Missouri.  Welcome Austin!

Can the Republican Party be Saved?

Most of the Republican members of the House of Representatives have voted against Christian and Conservative values and have been given a free pass because they “voted with the Republican caucus”.  Some believe if the elected officials are “On the Trump Train”, they’re okay now.  This kind of thinking hinders our ability to scrutinize votes through the lens of the Constitution.

On our show today, we talk with Gary Welch, a former Republican Party strategist and opposition researcher.  He shares with us his insights on what it’s going to take to bring the Country back to living within the limits of the Constitution.

White Flag Congress

I first met Ed Martin years ago when he was the Chief of Staff for Governor Matt Blunt. Since then, we seem to have followed each other around the state involving ourselves in many common causes with a similar grassroots base of supporters.

When is enough enough? It’s wearisome to constantly get e-mail messages informing us of the travesty being perpetrated on us by our government. We’re asked, even begged to take action by calling, writing and signing petition after petition. We know the man in the White House is a disappointment, but we expect more from our Republican dominated Congress.

Before October of this year, we had a “Debt Ceiling” that required some restraint from both Parties. This year during the budget votes, our Congress got rid of it.

This newsletter doesn’t allow me to even begin to scratch the surface of the wreckage we face due to the actions of those we sent to Washington. During their campaigns, they all promised to make things better. However, Senator Lankford from Oklahoma produced a document showing some examples of flagrant ineptness from our Congress. This is the article: Federal Fumbles Continue reading

New Laws

We took the kids to the zoo on Saturday.  It is one of the gems of the St. Louis area.  As I was there, it occurred to me that a Merry-Go-Round is a good way to describe the legislative session.   Bad bills continue to be reintroduced.  Good bills continue to spin around in orbit.  Some are so absorbed in the music and waving to the spectators that they hardly notice that another year has passed.  Usually, very little is accomplished because government is inclined to be inefficient.  However, this year was the first time in Missouri the Republicans had a Super-Majority in both the House and the Senate.  That means a veto-proof number of legislators should be able to accomplish whatever the leadership directs to happen.
