    The Reason For Memorial Day

    The Reason For Memorial Day

    On this special Memorial Day edition of Making the Argument, Nick reminds us how for many who served in the Armed Forces, Memorial day has a certain solemnest to it. It's a day of remembrance for the fathers, brothers, wives, and sisters who sacrificed all of their tomorrow's for our great nation. He said, "Do everything within your power to make sure that you fight for and preserve a nation worthy of their sacrifice. We owe it to them. And we shouldn't look at that obligation as a debt we are reluctant to pay, we should look at it as something that we have the honor to repay."

Fantastic

Representative Freitas is a shining example of living and governing by conservative principles. He knows what he believes in, why he believes it and is able to speak very clearly and passionately about his beliefs without shutting down dialog or stifling viewpoints. This podcast is excellent for anyone who wants to hear conservative viewpoints without vitriolic statements regarding opposing viewpoints or the people who hold them.

Simply outstanding!

I just recently discovered Nick and don’t think I’ve ever been this impressed with a political candidate. This is what the GOP desperately needs - a thoughtful, unpretentious, pro-life Libertarian who actually has a political philosophy and is a gifted communicator. The podcast is outstanding in every respect. Virginians in the 7th District should be very enthusiastic. I am and I don’t say that about many Republicans these days.
