    Hope and Your Vote – What’s the Election Connection? – with Nathan Naidu

    Hope and Your Vote – What’s the Election Connection? – with Nathan Naidu

    Hope. It’s a lifeline. How can your vote provide hope to those less fortunate in our country and around the world?  People need true hope – not the kind promised by a government program that creates dependency, but the kind that comes from policies and programs that encourage independence, individual freedom, and prosperity.  Hospitals, religious and educational institutions, orphanages, adoption agencies, and homeless shelters are just some types of non-profit organizations that seek to serve and support others through generous donations of caring individuals.  Without capitalism, donations would diminish. In this episode, Linda interviews Nathan Naidu, a young political colleague who is also devoted to providing true hope to orphans through his work with Heart for Africa organization.  Listen today to discover how your vote could help!

    No Better Friend – Fighting for Others in the Battle for Freedom – with Kevin Nicholson

    “No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy” is a phrase often attributed to the United States Marine Corps.  We salute those in all branches of the military who enter combat on our behalf to protect freedom and defend us against all enemies.  How can we serve others and do this in civilian life? Kevin Nicholson is a battle-tested Marine, business leader, and volunteer President & CEO of No Better Friend Corp. He chronicles his journey from a leader in the Democrat Party to someone who once ran for office as a Republican, and to one who now gives generously of his time and resources to empower and prosper others through a conservative organization he founded to promote America and our Constitutional values and principles. He shares with Linda his hopes for our country, and we are reminded once again that ideas have consequences, elections matter, and freedom is a precious gift we must protect.  Listen today!

Packed with Important/timely information!

I love Linda Hansen’s podcasts! I began to listen because I wanted to be better informed. Today, with so much false information flooding news and social media, I am looking for trusted sources that unapologetically speak truth. Linda has a wide array of topics and presents them with her guests in a manner that is easily understood and digested. Definitely worth your time to listen!
