American Principles: Do Our Politicians Care?


The torture report is only the most recent example of governmental indifference to principles upon which our nation was founded. Even the Chinese government issued a statement telling people the American government is hypocritical because we say we believe in a set rules but we do not follow them. Whether it be privacy, voting rights, prohibition of cruel punishment, habeus corpus, freedom of the press, equal rights, or separation of church and state, politics and money seem to define the new set of American principles. Is our nation’s fabric fraying at the edges? Listen to our conversation with Washington consultant, Larry Checco.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
