Ep. 32: American Division, Tariffs, Immigration, and Guns with Michael Johns

Americans are divided as ever. We are unwilling to listen to those with whom we disagree, even if they are in our same “party.” In Episode 32, Michael Johns (Co-Founder of the Tea Party Movement and Former Presidential Speechwriter) and I break down the causes. Michael explains how Congressional leadership has demonized dissent and why we should have listened to George Washington and stayed away from the two-party system. We also consider a few solutions: term limits, transparency, and more.

In addition, we cover controversial policy topics such as immigration, trade, and gun control. Michael describes how he thinks a trade war might pan out for Americans, how DACA has been used as a political tool, and why the law is not a sufficient deterrent to criminals.

Ep. 31: A World-Wide Tea Party with Tea Party Co-Founder Michael Johns

Michael Johns is a co-founder of the Tea Party movement, a former presidential speechwriter to George H.W. Bush, and former policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation. In this first part of our interview, he gives us the story behind the Tea Party movement. It was, and is still, an inclusionary, grassroots movement based on three principles: adherence to the constituition, limited government, and low taxation. The decentralization inherent in the Tea Party and its broad founding principles made it easy to get involved in––and nearly impossible to oppose. However, it meant that leadership would often be blamed for events that were out of their hands.

Be sure to tune in to an objective, in-depth analysis of the Tea Party’s rise and culmination.
