Have you ever missed the opportunity to listen to a friend, a significant other, or a co-worker? In this Op-Ed Brad Beck, author, speaker and Liberty Toastmaster, explains that our challenge is to listen respectfully to those voices who might have something important to share even if we disagree with what they have to say. Listening will help sharpen our own position and make our ideas stronger.
“Just as important as how we vote is that we vote,” Ronald Reagan famously said. In this Op-Ed, author and researcher Patti Kurgan explains that the biggest take-away from the last Presidential Debate is that you must vote and not sit on the sidelines. Patti explains that our country is depending on your vote. Similarities between the two candidates are non-existent. Stand united and preserve the American Idea of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The other choice will abolish private property and you will be controlled by elite politicians.

Steven explains that President Obama lost 3 ½ million votes from his first election to his second election. Steven also shares some silver linings to the current 2020 election results.
