Freedom vs Force. Force vs Freedom. Let’s Have a Conversation!

Partner with me as we engage in the “Battle of Ideas” occurring in our homes, our communities, our state and our nation. It is important to understand the issues so that we can converse with others in calm, reasonable voices. In order to preserve our Liberties, we must change hearts and minds.

Words are powerful. Ronald Reagan freed Berliners with the words, “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear down this wall!” My goal is that through my radio shows, website, social media, podcasts and women’s groups, I help you find the words to persuade those in your sphere of influence that Freedom is better than Force. If something is a good idea, it shouldn’t need force to implement it.

My business structure is unique. I purchase my airtime for my radio shows which means I have full editorial control of content, guests and the other projects. I welcome your partnership in keeping me on the air. In doing so, you will exponentially augment the good work that you are already involved in. Politics is downstream from culture which is downstream from education. Together we will engage and empower our fellow, hardworking Coloradans in the Battle of Ideas that is raging in our state.
