The Pushback on the National Popular Vote

A hammer can't build a home and a gun can't murder a person: Kim discusses how a gun likely saved Colorado realtor Dawna Hetzler on the morning of August 4th and she has a conversation with Trent England about the many problems of the National Popular Vote.

A hammer can’t build a home and a firearm can’t murder

It should be self-evident that a tool is merely an object of potential. It’s how the user employs the tool that determines what the tool creates or destroys. The recent tragedies in El Paso and Dayton rightfully have people upset, but there’s more to the story than the access to firearms. In today’s show, Kim discusses the harrowing experience of Dawna Hetzler. Dawna is a realtor. On August 4th—the day of the El Paso and Dayton shootings—Dawna was setting up an open house for a property in Commerce City. A man accosted her with a knife. Dawna, who has a concealed carry permit, was forced to discharge her firearm in self-defense. In her own words:

“If I didn’t have a firearm, I wouldn’t be here to talk to you.”

You can see Dawna’s full interview with 9 News in the embedded video.

Colorado is at the vanguard of those pushing back against the National Popular Vote Act

Trent England of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs joins Kim to discuss the inherent flaws with the National Popular Vote Act. As many listeners know, thanks to the work of Rose Pugliese and Don Wilson and countless others collecting over 200,00 signatures to place the National Popular Vote on the 2020 ballot, Colorado voters may be the first in the nation to shut down the ill-advised end-run around the Electoral College. England and Kim discuss the numerous reasons why the National Popular Vote is flawed as well as other subjects.

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.
