An American Message to Politicians?


Forget the politics. Did the American people send a bigger message to politicians? Eric Cantor’s loss has been attributed to his position on immigration reform but the truth may be far more complex. While the result of his primary may be increasingly polarizing, the message may be unifying: that Americans are weary of money and politics. Maybe Americans are saying, “Enough. We want politicians who represent the People.” There may be hope but the path back to representative democracy contains warnings. Former candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, Andy Schmookler, returns to discuss the big picture.

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.
