Author Conversation: The Great Divide – The Conflict between Washington and Jefferson That Defined a Nation


Thomas Jefferson worked with the French hardliners the same as today’s Republicans are aligned with Iranian hardliners. Civil discourse was as divisive in the early days of our country as it exists today. The primary difference from today was the disagreements were over issues rather than political. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had different attitudes towards states’ right and Federalism, alignments toward England or France, and many other issues. Listen to author Thomas Fleming describe the intrigues of early American politics.

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.
