Kim reminds people to visit her website to review her “We the People” Voter’s Guide and Allen Thomas’ most recent op-ed, When to Call it Quits. Carol Baker, Secretary of Liberty Toastmasters Denver is in studio with Kim for Table Topics on the subjects of capitalism and why vote. Kim brings up the Working Families Party who are “dedicated to upholding progressive values through direct action and electoral victory. Our mission is to empower people, organizations, and communities to build a multiracial and feminist populist movement that strengthens democracy and advances racial, social and economic justice.” The Working Families Party has a number of candidates running throughout the Denver-metro area. Know who you are voting for!
Robyn Carnes is a candidate for Centennial City Council. She states that people are paying attention to this election and understand the importance of local elections. She warns voters that progressives have infiltrated the conservative narrative and echoes what Kim said earlier, know who you are voting for. The Working Families Party has candidates both in the Denver area and the western slope looking to overtake school boards and city councils. Robyn’s platform is based on personal safety and security, economic well-being and empowering constituents. Jeremy Johnson, candidate for Longmont City Council, agrees with Robyn’s points. People are ready to stand up and have the voice of the entire community heard. The American Idea must be protected as special interest groups give false hope. Jeremy is concerned about housing, children and the educational system, available work for the people in the community, and the status of small businesses.

Members of Liberty Toastmasters-North and Liberty Toastmasters-Denver discuss capitalism and the importance of voting. Thoughtful and analytical comments include: “follow your bliss” which is actually follow your prosperity; voting is the essence of freedom; the choice we make in voting is the choice we choose for the direction of our country; instead of voting between two evils maybe we should have “none of the above;” the best debate results from making a point through a compelling story and; “giving thanks for the invisible hand.”
