    EP 591 The Elites and the People Battle for the Soul of the Conservative Movement

    EP 591 The Elites and the People Battle for the Soul of the Conservative Movement

    This ain’t Ronald Reagan’s conservative GOP.  He favored immigration, international involvement and free trade.  So what does the Trump era conservative movement resemble?  Calivin Coolidge?  Perhaps, the two have little in common personally, but from a policy perspective economic protection, restricted immigration and non-intervention in the world, including mutual defense alliances are back in the … Continue reading EP 591 The Elites and the People Battle for the Soul of the Conservative Movement →

    EP 590 The Supreme Court Just Made Gun Law Changes More Difficult Going Forward

    Remember the Alanis Morrisette song, “Isn’t It Ironic”, well that fits the notion of trying to reform gun laws in America.  On virtually the same day as Congress passed a series of measures, not curtailing the types of guns available on America’s streets or universal background checks, but modest measures to help cut back on … Continue reading EP 590 The Supreme Court Just Made Gun Law Changes More Difficult Going Forward →

    EP 587 Can Democrats Win Rural Voters? Is It Worth the Effort?

    EP 587 Can Democrats Win Rural Voters? Is It Worth the Effort?

    When our guest knocked on one door of a voter in her rural Maine district, his first question was are you a Republican or a demon? Hmm…nice opener. The FDR coalition, a mainstay of American politics throughout much of the 20th century, has fallen apart.  Less educated, rural voters have abandoned the Democratic Party.  However, … Continue reading EP 587 Can Democrats Win Rural Voters?
