Politics, Fear, and Leadership in America


How do good people enter politics and act in a manner which serves political partisanship and corrupts democratic institutions? Why is fear often employed to advance political agendas even if the fear is not true? Churchill, Lincoln, and Roosevelt empowered people and reminded them of their potential despite daunting situations. Leadership today consists of one party pledging to crush constructive efforts of another party while viewing compromise as a weakness. Where is positive leadership? Why is it undermined? Is this acceptable to you?

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.
