    #24 - Women Discuss their Vote (10.20.20)

    #24 - Women Discuss their Vote (10.20.20)

    -Episode livestreamed Tuesday, October 20, 2020, on Facebook and YouTube.

    Truth Will Set You Free goes Full Female for our Panel Tonight.

    This episode is going to be a targeted discussion on the female perspective. How could a woman vote for Trump, or why is it that some women could never imagine voting for Trump? Well... We are going to talk about it this week on Truth Will Set You Free.

    This episode is going to continue the hard conversation on how to have the uncomfortable conversation regarding the Election. We have Curtis Harkness and Kash Lee Kelly for this Tuesday's show with our host Anthony Michael Russo. We will give all updates on everything we have going on with Streetlights and BeTheChange and all the new items on the website! That's right... NEW ITEMS!

    THIS WEEK'S DISCUSSION IS SIMPLE - 2 liberal Females, 2 conservative Females and one undecided have a discussion.

    Guests Are:
    Barb Allen- Conservative Podcaster from American Snippets
    Chelly Flecha - Latina Police Officer for Trump
    Rachel Altman - Libertarian/Conservative but Undecided for 2020
    Lindsay Chambers - Liberal
    Kristen Olsen - Outspoken Liberal

    The concept about this hour-hour and a half on politics is to create open dialogue. We have made ourselves well versed in politics, with a willingness to research every bit of information that comes our way and separating fact from "media fact," based on exhaustive research and common sense in the English language. This will be an open forum for discussion. We try our best to show every side, so that we better know to have a conversation in the end. We are going to share our thoughts, and do our best to answer a couple questions. We will talk about the issues that division is causing and why this is so dangerous as a society...and continuously learning, being more open to listening and learning.

    The show starts at 7:00pm EDT and will go for about a while, a little more than an hour, to explain the danger in all the hateful posting going on with political posts. Right now, as a country we are in this together and I want to separate opinion from facts, logic from emotion, and what happens when we start to share our "opinions" as fact. Also, I want to challenge some people on their beliefs that may have been rooted in half-truths.

    At the end of the day my belief is with the company I started to ---#bethechange you wish to see in the world and the spreading of division and hate going on in a time of turmoil that we as a planet are going through is unacceptable.

    Don't be a #socialmediawarrior - instead be a #changemaker with an #openmind

    So we will be live-streaming at appx. 7:00 Eastern time on Tuesday the 20th of October, right here on FB and YouTube.

    I want both my liberal and conservative friends alike to join me and I will be coming at this conversation from strictly a point of logic and hope. We are allowed to differ in opinions, but we have to separate emotion from logic. I can also invite people on to the stream to have a discussion live instead of just via comments so please feel free to join me, discuss, debate, argue, whatever. I just want to create an open forum to discuss the concept of truth and how dangerous the spreading of judgement and hate without true information can be. #bethechange.
    Why is this important to me? I'm a free citizen that has a very open mind and self-educates exhaustively, and it is my right and my wish to do so. Also, with that though process I consider myself a voice of logic and kindness looking to constantly promote positivity despite all the division and hate.

    Let's learn together. I will do my best to be searching different articles to determine what really is the truth, so we can all learn, including me, but at the end of the day I suggest tolerance, love, kindness over spreading hate and...
