Kim steers her listeners to her website for the podcast featuring Wisconsin state Representative Tim Ramthun discussing why he believes all 50 states should have a forensic audit on the 2020 Election. The We the People Voter’s Guide analyzes all three statewide questions and recommends school board candidates. Ben Martin joins Kim to discuss similarities between 1776 and today. Ben states that the people were educated and well-read which allowed them to know what was happening at the local and national levels. The country had a similar split as of today. One-third of the people were “loyalists,” one-third were “patriotic” and; one-third were undecided. One glaring difference is that in 1776 congressional representatives only met when necessary as they had farms and businesses to work back home. Turning to current events Ben and Kim discuss Biden’s new policy, beginning in November, when non-U.S. citizens traveling into the U.S. must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus and have proof before boarding their flight. This policy does not include immigrants. Denver International Airport had a job fair for 1,000 openings and only 100 people came to the event.
Historian Ben Martin continues his monthly series on the American Revolution, moving to the Southern Theater 1775-1783. Battles in Savannah, Charleston, Waxhaws, Camden and Cowpens are highlighted. Key individuals integral to the defeats and victories on both sides include General Gates, Major General Benjamin Lincoln, General Nathanael Greene and Daniel Morgan for the Americans, and General Clinton and Charles Lord Cornwallis on the British side. The split between Patriots and Loyalists was significant in the south resulting in heavy recruitment for both militias.
