Tim McCormack, candidate for District Attorney for Adams and Broomfield Counties, states that this office is about protecting and serving the community, and not about politicizing it for a specific agenda. Unfortunately, rule of law and community safety has taken a back seat to DA’s activist agenda to enforce some but not all laws. Tim is focused on community safety and justice.

Guest Antony Davis, associate professor of economics at Duquesne University and co-author of Cooperation and Coercion: How Busybodies Became Busybullies and What That Means for Economics and Politics, joins Kim in a discussion regarding cooperation vs. coercion. There is always a better way to do something, and the creativity of the mind is instrumental in developing strategies as opposed to a one-way forced practice by the government. Individuals are better at coming to solutions that best fit their circumstances and the “busybullies” enforcing government interference only hinder a positive outcome. Government mandates do not have a measured response and never build in benchmarks. Antony ends on an optimistic note relaying the concept that people can figure out for themselves what is best for them, and we need to trust them. People are usually good in nature.
