The America that we are living in right now is not a free America.
Welcome to Not Free America Radio. I'm your host, Mike Donovan. And by the way, my cohost, Mario Williams is not with us. He's feeling a little under the weather this week, so we wish them well. We look forward to seeing him again next week. It's a very exciting week, folks. The book, Not Free America comes out this week. I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys. I can't wait to interact with you guys about the book, really looking forward to seeing what you have to say about my thoughts. I felt for a long time that I wanted to talk about constitutional principles and how they impact individual liberty, but 2020 was a wake-up call for me as it was for many, many people, liberal, conservative, progressive, what have you. If you are not one of the haves, then you are fodder for the haves. And then the reality is that in a time of crisis, the people who have things, that small percentage, take care of themselves and the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves.
Now here's the thing about the United States of America. Folks, everybody's here with an opportunity. No one is guaranteed anything. I believe in that, but I also don't believe in the deck being stacked against people. And that's what happens. It's what happens when you have police unions who corrupt the industry of policing, takes it from a noble cause and turns it into something that asserts superpowers over individuals without any accountability whatsoever. We see it over and over and over again. We have healthcare and expanded health care options thanks to Obamacare. But I know so many people on Obamacare that can't stand the coverage, they can't stand the high deductibles. We have to be able to come together and understand that there is more that unites us than divides us. That's what the book is about.
The book isn't going to tell any of you everything you want to hear, but that's also not reality. It's also not something that you have to agree with. There's a lot of opinion in the book, and that's my opinion, and I'd love to share it with you, but I don't expect you to just adopt it. If my arguments won the day, then so be it. And if you have a different perspective, awesome. But I really want you to read the book because in addition to those ideas that might get you thinking about different things, I think that the book is more important than that for this reason. I wrote the book understanding there's a time coming in the United States of America was dark. Joe Biden at the last debate said we're going into a dark winter, and you know what? He's not wrong. But it's not just winter that's looking dark. We've seen a decimation of our economy after an incredible over-reaction to a pandemic that is bound to have harmed and killed less people than will ultimately be harmed and killed by the poverty and the civil unrest that follows.
Our country is literally falling apart, being ripped apart at the seams. We can't continue to do this. We have to unite together. It isn't about political party. It isn't about a candidate. It's simply about being an American. Do you believe even the Constitution of the United States? Do you believe in these sovereign states coming together, forming a Republic that represents the interests of the citizen? Do you believe in the promise of America, something better than, a land of ideals, a land of opportunity, the land of the free and the home of the brave, are we? Are we really when the vast majority of the world's prisoners per capita are in the United States, when the United States of America incarcerates more people per capita than any other country in the world, land of the free, really, really? If you can't sue a police officer who shoots your child in the head because of qualified immunity, you're going to tell me we're the land of the free. Where's the freedom for that child, for his parents, for that family?
No. I'm afraid we haven't been living up to what we've been billing ourselves as for some time. But the good news about realizing that you're not what you're saying you are is that you can fix it. The great news about realizing that you have a problem is that you can then fix the problem. We have to fix the problem by coming together. And in my book, Not Free America, I'm going to give you practical guidance, a roadmap on how to get through the strife that's coming. It's often said you don't see war until it's upon you, and these United States have never been this tumultuous, this chaotic. We've never seen these types of factors come together in such a way in a world that is made much smaller by technology. We are living in a time of culmination.
Read the book. It will give you practical advice on how to survive the coming years of turmoil and strife because I believe there is a better day ahead for these United States. I don't believe that America's days are behind her. I do not believe that the greatest democratic experiment in the history of the world, in my opinion, is dead. I refuse to believe that. I believe that we can do something different, do something better, live up to the promises we've made, be the people we've promised that we would be. Understand that it isn't just about us, it's a collective understanding of the promise of the freedom encapsulated in the Constitution of the United States. The words mean something. And that's also something I write about in the book because folks, when a police officer can search your house or your car and you can't sue them because of qualified immunity, then the Constitution doesn't mean what it says.
Folks, I wrote this book because I wanted to share with you what keeps me up at night, what makes me nervous as a dad, about what we're giving to our kids. I want to share with you my fear, but also my hope. Harvey Milk said ... Harvey milk's a very interesting man. He said, "You got to give them hope. Hope is the single greatest human commodity. Without hope, there's nothing. But with hope, we can accomplish anything." Notfreeamerica.com, go to the website, order the book. It's in bookstores on Tuesday. Go to your bookstore, buy the book. But I want to talk to you. I want to engage with you. I want you to come to the website, come to our social, let me know what you think. And I appreciate you so very much.
I wanted to talk to you all about the final debate of the presidential campaign season of 2020, the Trump/Biden showdown that occurred last week. And I just have to say, and I'm going to make a prediction here, and that's always dangerous, but I'm going to have to say that I'm about to tell you why Donald Trump is going to win re-election on Election Day on Tuesday, Election Day in 2020. I'm going to tell you why. If you look at the debate and you look at the two candidates on the stage, Trump brought some discipline to the debate last week. He brought some focus, not an incredible amount, nothing that would have impressed any of us for any reason from a politician before. But from Trump after the first debate, after the second cancellation, after the litany of debates in 2016, with the name-calling, I mean, that was a significantly different Trump. And see, the thing is the power of low expectations is that if you bring in your game, you really shine.
I'm a progressive. I've sued Donald Trump, the president of the United States. I have no love loss for the guy, but he won that debate. He won that debate because he showed up and he delivered, and he looks strong, and his opponent looked weak. Now, there were a couple parts in the debate that really, really set for me. And I want to start by saying, I have not made a decision. I have not made an endorsement in this campaign. I can't. Because I can't support the president, a man who I believe whose family separation policy was repugnant to my faith and who I have serious character issues with from a faith perspective, legitimately. But my bigger issue right now is I'm also a progressive. And so I would hope to be able to support the Democratic nominee, but I can't. And I can't do that because the Democratic nominee is one of the authors of the 1990s crime bill that led to the mass incarceration of a generation or two, coming on two, of African-American individuals across this country.
Anyone who is involved in the drafting or the deal-making that caused that law to be passed, and who hasn't spent the remainder or a significant part of their career correcting that injustice has no business running for office, in my opinion. And while they certainly can, because the Constitution affords them the right, they'll never get my vote. Add to that, the running mate for Biden, Kamala Harris, and her record as a prosecutor in Oakland, California, and I have to take a step back and I have to ask myself, is this the best that America can do? Donald Trump is Donald Trump. We knew what we were getting with this guy. But where is the alternative? And as a Democrat, as a progressive, my party has left me. The lockdown policies that the party embraced and continues to embrace are shocking to me. It's as if we just don't care if the economy goes off, the cliff. It's as if the party and the party's leaders just don't care. I don't get it.
I want to be able to help take care of people. You can't do that if we're bankrupt. A positive, healthy safety net is a great thing, but it requires some abundance to be able to provide it. And you can't take the economy of this country and throw it away and then expect that people aren't going to hurt more. It's nonsensical. The shutdown policies of 2020 will be remembered in the history of this country as one of the great debacles. And I think the president owns some of it too, although I do acknowledge and affirm and honor the fact that the man did not order a national shutdown.
The fact remains the president's administration was far too slow in responding to the abuses of the Democratic governors of certain states, including my home state of Virginia, Michigan, and others. And I know that I have friends on the left that are horrified that I'm saying that, but many of them also know, they feel it too because we talk about it together. And you know what, somebody has to just be willing to come out and talk about these things in open with each other. Because when my liberal friends get together, we talk about how disappointed we are in this nominee. We talk about how disappointed we are in the vice-presidential candidate's record. And if you aren't talking about that, then you aren't a progressive who understands the absolute horror of the effects of the 1990s crime bill. And believe me, none of this is to say that Donald Trump and his administration is better or should be let off the hook for what I believe are egregious wrongs, and then many, many also good things.
And the president was correct about his criminal justice reform initiatives. And it is difficult knowing what I know about the cases I've had with the presidents and the family separation policies. It's difficult for me as a progressive to look on that stage and see Donald Trump outshining my candidate because it shouldn't be. But we have a candidate in Joe Biden who cannot meet Donald Trump on the field of battle vis-a-vis criminal justice reform because Donald Trump has actually done something on criminal justice reform. And that something was to correct some of the horrors that were implemented by Joe Biden. And you just can't look at that stage, I don't think you can look at that stage. I certainly could not look at that stage and see the two of them there and look at my candidate, my presumed candidate as a progressive, and see that the author of the thing that sent a generation of black kids to prison, took black men out of homes, destroyed families, and there he is as a progressive running against the racist-in-chief.
How am I supposed to feel about the fact that the only alternative I have to Donald Trump is the guy who wrote legislation that Trump actually fixed? And you know what, I'm not saying any of this to support Trump because I don't. I'm saying this because it's true. And someone needs to tell the truth. You know why someone needs to tell the truth? Because the day after Election Day, there's going ... Well, let's be real. Whenever we get the results, which likely won't be the day after Election Day, but when we get the results, the post-mortem will start intensely. How could everyone have gotten it wrong? How did we miss the signs? Folks, let me tell you how. You're just not paying attention. When you look at the two candidates together, you have a candidate who embodies strength and a candidate who doesn't, who looks weak. You have a candidate who's going to tell you that everything's going to be okay and you have a candidate that tells you he's wrong.
Now that candidate may be right. Things aren't okay. Biden's right about that. But guess what, voters want to know that it's going to be okay. And if Biden can't close the argument on the idea that he has a way to make it okay, we've got a huge problem. And I think that the Democrats have that huge problem because the ideas can't be put a mask on, and we might lock the government down, we might lock the economy down again. That can't be the answer.
If that is the answer, people will not vote for you. The biggest tragedy for the Democrats in that debate was the lack of an understanding of exactly what it is that Joe Biden plans to do. He says he has a plan but when you push him or you listen, it's listen to the doctors, listen to the health professionals, put your mask on. Okay. I've got a president here who's telling me that within weeks he's going to have a vaccine and he's preparing the military to deploy it. Terrifying, by the way. But do you understand that difference? Strength versus weakness. Folks, thank you so much for being with me. Stay tuned, we'll be right back.
Welcome back to Not Free America Radio, NotFreeAmerica.com. Go there. My book in bookstores on Tuesday, October 27th, but you can go onto NotFreeAmerica.com and get your copy today. Would love to hear from you on what you think, and would love to work with you as we all work together to figure out a better way for America to move forward.
Folks, we talked about a prediction. I teased a prediction, but let me be clear. I do believe that Donald Trump will be reelected as President of the United States in 2020. I believe he will be reelected for the following reasons. This has been a campaign for Joe Biden and the Democrats to lose, and if I am correct, Joe Biden will go down in history as being the definition of a person snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
In reality, this is the failure of my party and of my ideology, because in reality, every ideology is a little bit hypocritical and every ideology at some level becomes impractical. And if you don't realize that, then you're never going tobe able to grow. We have to understand that we can learn from each other. Okay? So I don't expect Democrats to be perfect, nor do I expect Republicans to be perfect. I don't expect liberals or progressives or conservatives to be perfect. Nobody's perfect.We're all going to get it wrong sometimes.
That's why it's important to be able to talk to one another. If we're able to talk to one another, and more importantly, listen to one another, then we can grow. Then we can grow. But unfortunately, what we have in this election is a candidate in Donald Trump who is probably the strongest force in recent political memory to hold the office. Then you have a candidate who is incredibly weak. How we were so tone deaf to nominate the guy who was instrumental in drafting the 1990s crime bill at a time when police misconduct in the African-American community was exposed at an all time high, where the knowledge that we needed to move forward on race relations in this country was present of mind.
We nominated Joe Biden, one of the architects of the 1990s crime bill, a bill that sent generation or more, a generation and a half now of African American men and boys to prison for crimes that white people in similar situations just didn't get sentenced that way for. The sentencing disparities in drug policies are very well known. That bill harmed people. That law killed people. It ripped families apart.
I've sued the President of United States on family separation. You understand? I funded those lawsuits and I got kids reunited, and I've helped take care of those families. So I know something about this. I know something about the President's failure on family separations, but it's hard. It's hard to listen to Joe Biden talk about that when Joe Biden's authorship and Providence over the 1990s crime bill led to how many family separations. Why don't those separations matter too? They should. They should.
I believe that the President United States should be held accountable for his family separation policies. I do, but what of the policies from the 1990s crime bill? What are those policies? That's Joe Biden, folks. That's Joe Biden. That's who he is. That's what he thinks. It's what he believes.
Now, I understand there's not much choice. To my liberal friends, to my progressivefriends, it is what it is. You're not realizing how bad this is. And I'm beginning to think that Trump is some kind of diabolical political genius, which I never would have thought before. But we are at a position right now where he has everything to win,a strong debate performance. He looks strong. It looks like he has a plan. And if you were to put the two of them together, forced me to watch the debate last week and point to the one that I thought had things more under control based on that window of time and what I saw, it'd be the President because he was clear and he was direct that things are going to be okay.
We're in crisis folks. We're in crisis. And in trauma, people are looking for something that gives them indicia that things are going to beokay. You have to tell people things are going to be okay. You have to give people hope. Where's the hope in the Biden message vis-a-vis coronavirus? Where's the hope?
The President United States says we're going to have a vaccine in a few weeks and he's going to use military generals to shove it down our throats or in our arms or whatever. It's a horrible, disgusting plan if it involves using the military to force people or give people the impression that they have to take vaccines. Okay? But at least it's a plan. What is Biden's plan? Listen to the doctors?
If Biden's plan is the plan that was enacted in the state of New York, folks, you need to look at this. You need to understand this. Not for any other reason then after election day, someone, many people are going to be sitting around going, "How did this happen? How did we get here? How did we miss it?" No one thought he was going to win. Everybody thought we were in for a landslide. As was a friend of mine, said, "Texas is in play. Texas is in play. Georgia is in play." Georgia is not in play, folks. Texas isn't in play, folks.
The President of the United States is strong right now. And he shouldn't be. It's a creation of the democratic party and its ticket. I don't understand. Sometimes I wonder if, as Democrats we're gluttons for punishment. Maybe sometimes we just don't like to win. But if we couldn't beat this guy, this President ...
Now look, I don't want to be disrespectful. Okay? I have a lot of problems with the President and his policies. I'm not going to be disrespectful, but I will say that if there was ever a President the Democrats should have been able to usher out of office, it's this guy. His polarizing ways, his poll numbers and the fact that we were in a crisis that people neededhelp out of. You're running for President in 2020, the defining human event in 2020 is the Coronavirus. How can you run for President of the United States, the leader of the free world, at least I think we still are. How can you do that and not have a solid plan for what you are going to do to combat the Coronavirus and get the country back to work again?
Because combating the coronavirus isn't just about stopping the spread. It's about stopping the destruction that comes from the economic collapse we are facing, the destruction that comes from the fraying of civil order and violence in our streets that we are facing right now. And it only gets worse from here.
Now it's not whether polls are right or polls are wrong. See, I think sometimes people just aren't honest about whether they're going to vote for Donald Trump, but I'll promise you this. I promise you this, there are a lot more people voting for Donald Trump than you think if you are confident in a Democratic victory, this is not unlike 2016. Of course, where the polls also show that Hillary Clinton was going to win and win by a considerable margin in States that she ultimately lost. Let's not lose sight of historical lessons when the history is so short in our past, folks.
I don't get why this President is so popular, except I guess I do, because we haven't put someone up against him who demonstrates the kind of ideas that will advance America forward while also bringing all of America forward into a realm of opportunity that isn't squandered by, Idon't know, something like qualified immunity, which lets a police officer do whatever they want and not get sued for it. That's not the America that I live in. I live in an America that believes everybody has equal opportunity.
I want more people to have that opportunity because I love this country. I love what you can do in this country. I've been successful in this country. I want other people to be successful in this country, but if you want to be successful in this country, you have to understand that we have to have an economy that works and it has to show up and it has to turn on every day in order for it to work.
We can't stomach continued economic shutdowns. We shouldn't have done it the way we did it in the first place. And before you tell me about all the people that might not have died, please let's look at what happened in New York. Let's look at what happened in the greatest example of how Democrats handle the coronavirus. Because in reality, there are allegations that elderly people were left to die, forced to stay in horrible places. We know that people were denied access to family, to friends, that hospitals ultimately began making decisions for people. That is the reality. And that reality is against a backdrop of a candidate who wants us to hide under our beds and a candidate who says everything's going to be okay. "Trust me. I've got a plan. I've got a plan. I've got a distribution plan. I've got these vaccines. They're in progress. We all know that."
The President came to the debate with the plan. He came to the debate with a strategy and he came to the debate with a great deal of self-control. A bit of self-control, in fact, I wasn't sure the man still had. And in doing that he has secured what I believe will be a victory on electionday. Now understand something, I won't be celebrating that victory because I believe that this President should lose reelection. I believe it. It's a personal belief I hold, but here's the fact folks, it's not going to happen because the person that Democrats nominated, it just can't get us there, folks. He just can't get us there. So this President and all of those xenophobic and racist things that we hate about what he says will be emboldened and empowered.
And it's our fault because in the marketplace of ideas we brought a weak hand. We brought a weak hand. I know the polls don't look like it. If you look at the polls, you have to be pretty confident things are going to be going your way. And I know a lot of people really get complacent with polls, but you can't get complacent with polls when you're dealing with Donald J. Trump. If he didn't learn that from 2016, please let me help you understand. I don't know if people don't want to admit that they're going to vote for Trump, but for whatever reason, the polls are off. They're almost always off, and sometimes, sometimes they're dramatically off.
I believe that was the President was in real risk of losing the election as most recently as Friday. I believed as most recently as Thursday, I believed that the polls were right. I believed that likely he was going to win, but against the backdrop of a closing race, folks, I'm no longer confident. In fact, I'm not confident at all. I am confident that it's going to go the other way. I believe that Trump will be our President for the next four years. And I hope, I hope that my progressive and Democratic friends, once they're over the anger and trauma of the election will begin to understand that this was absolutely avoidable.
Sometimes the best idea is to put your best ideas forward first. This pragmatism around the idea of evolving forward holds us back. Who really believes that Joe Biden is the guy that gets us out of a generational struggle on race and incarceration and enough unrest to potentially rip the country apart. You want someone with strength. You want someone with a plan. The American people saw two candidates on that stage. One had strength and a plan, and the other talked about more shutdowns. Folks, we can't do that. We got to save this country. We'll be right back.
Welcome back to Not Free America. So notfreeamerica.com is the website to go to. Go to that website, order my book, it's out on Tuesday. Or go to your local bookstore and pick it up.
Folks, very excited about the book and I want to talk to you as we wrap up the program this weekend. We're hurtling toward election day and then beyond, who knows what the country looks like after this. I'm worried about violence. I'm worried about whether our country can survive it, of course. But I believe, again, that the single greatest human commodity is hope. And that's what the book is about. It gives us hope for a pathway forward.
The path is going to go through darkness, that's true, but the measure of a man or a woman isn't necessarily how they behave or how they perceive the fight in the darkness, more how they perform when the fight is upon them. And the fight is upon us.
But the fight's answer isn't to harm and kill one another, it's to talk to one another and learn from one another. And if you read my book, I think if you're a liberal you'll like some things and hate some things, and the same way for conservatives.
But here's the thing, folks, labels and boxes don't work. We're people, and there's one thing that unites us and that is a concept of understanding the importance of individual liberty. Individual liberty is incredibly important. It is about bedrock foundation principle of these United States. And if we do not honor individual liberty, every promise that's made to us by our government, by its founding documents, are lies. And I refuse to accept that. I refuse to accept it.
Here we are. Here we are in 2020, and I wrote a book to give people hope, because I think that's what people need. So here's the thing, folks, we're in a pretty scary time, and we all know that, and scary times, well, it can be difficult understanding what we should do next. Lots of apathy. People lose their jobs. They don't know how to get involved. They don't know how to get back to it. They're worried. There's fear. People are losing their homes. They're losing their vehicles. There's a lack of food in a lot of places it's impacting people or a lack of resources to be able to get that food.
This is just the beginning. I predicted today on the show that Donald Trump would be reelected president, and I stand by that prediction. But I'm also going to predict that this country will deepen into a state of conflict and then it will be up to all of us freedom loving Americans, patriots who believe in individual liberty, to come together and ensure that the America that continues to exist after COVID-19 and the unrest of this year and beyond, the hypocrisy of the American police state crashing upon itself, let's hope and pray on the other side of it we can build something new, but yetsomething old. A promise that had never been fulfilled. A promise of equal opportunity. Of life. Of liberty. Of the pursuit of happiness. Where have we gone so incredibly wrong? How do we get back? Read the book.
When I sat down to write this book, I didn't know how long it would take. I didn't realize the commitment and time. I wanted to write about cases I'd funded and experiences I had because folks have been doing this a while. I know what it feels like when the government turns against you, because they turn against my clients and people I support all the time. All the time.
I write in the book about a privilege quotient and I talked about how during the coronavirus lockdowns, many people who were conservative, many people who were white and hadn't experienced the same kind of experiences that deprive liberty that black and brown people often experience, began to see it. I said then, that it's an interesting opportunity, really, an interesting opportunity for folks who have been impacted by a system that is so elitist and protectionist, that it doesn't care about you. We all have. It's one thing that unites us all. We all have had that experience.
That should tell you something right there. We can't continue to elect people who create systems that arebroken and don't work anymore. And we can continue to elect people who played dog whistle to racists. The country is better than this. The country is better than us.
But we have the choices we have, and I predict that it is very, very likely this president will be reelected, because I can't imagine the Biden message winning as it stands. So of course we needed to talk about the debate today. I want to make sure you all have an opportunity to get the book. I think that's important. I really want you to read about qualified immunity, understand what it is. This book will explain it to you in such a way that you can explain it to others. You'll understand how unjust it is, and you can help us repeal it once and for all.
I want you to read the book. I want you to learn about qualified immunity. I think you'll be offended, no matter what your political persuasion, when you really understand what it is. I think you'll be offended. I appreciate your interest in the book. Notfreeamerica.com. Go there, buy the book, or it's in bookstores on Tuesday.
NASA announced that we have an asteroid, SO 2020, coming toward earth and it was discovered last month. And so what's interesting is that there's been an, and so obviously we're shifting gears from the political, although all things are political friends, right? Especially when NASA is involved. But NASA has said that there is an asteroid that is going to come close to earth and it will actually enter Earth's orbit and become a second satellite, or a second moon. Something that has only happened twice in recorded human history. Although it's probably happened quite a multitude of times before we knew what it was, but this thing is going to be orbiting earth.
Now, NASA says, it's likely not a space rock at all, they thinkit's a rocket ship. Now, before you get too excited, this is not Star Trek: The Next Generation, at least not yet. But it appears, at least from NASA's perspective, that a portion of a rocket that was used in the 1960s that was a rejected before a lunar landing may have been flung into space and be making its way back.
That's the working theory, folks. And you know what? I'll go with that, as long as you tell we have a contingency if it's not one of ours, because you know, 2020 is just one of those years,you kind of have to expect the unexpected.
I wanted to take a few minutes to just address a few listener concerns and interests we've heard a lot from you over the last few weeks, which I really, really appreciate. Many of you talking about how much you enjoy the show or the fresh perspectives, the legal advice, Mario's here and can help folks understand and just sort of navigate where we are. It is a very scary time to be alive, but it's also a very exciting time to be alive.
I think our listeners know it's an exciting time to be alive and it's a dangerous time to be alive, and I think everyone's taking this seriously. Everyone's taking the time seriously, where we are, our place in the world, and what our responsibilities are.
To that end, Tony from Nebraska wrote and he said, Tony says, "Mario, Mike, appreciate you guys. Listening each week. And keep up the good work. Really appreciate the knowledge and the legal understanding." Well, thanks, man. Really happy to be here, to be able to provide that. And Mario is a gem in that regard. We want to be able to provide information. We want to be able to provide a pathway forward.
I think that's what I try to do in the book. It's about helping people understand what the next steps are. We have brought ourselves to the brink of destruction as a country. The brink of destruction, we have. We can pull ourselves back. We can. It is entirely possible. We have to be serious. And part of being serious is understanding that some things have to matter. At some level, something has to matter more. And that something has to be the individual liberty principle. A person isn't free if their liberty isn't always protected. And this idea that we somehow need to barter away, or give away, our constitutional rights in a crisis,defies logic when you consider that these documents were born out of some of the greatest crisis our founders had ever known. I missed the part that says exception when there's a crisis. We need to be truer to who we are as free people in crisis. That's what we need in this country.

We are excited. I am excited about what that means. And let me talk a little bit about that because I think it's important. I mean, I think I want you to understand that the reason I wrote Not Free America isbecause I believe in America. I've funded cases where I've seen people who have no power hold people with great power accountable. I know it's possible. The system doesn't live up to its promise every day, in fact it quite rarely does, but it can, and it's the best thing we have until someone comes to fix it or change it. And I'm happy to do that too.
At last, another episode of Not Free America radio is gone. Folks, as we hurtle toward the future of uncertainty, let me say this to you. We are in this together. Hope springs eternal. We have an opportunity to do something great, to be the better America that we always could have been, by just simply keeping our promises. But we have to walk through fire to get there.
As Winston Churchill said, "If you're going through hell, keep going, for it is the only way to ensure that you don't stay in hell." Who wants to be in hell? There is a sort of hell over this country, and the world, right now. But freedom, freedom and bravery and courage, things that used to beprinciple bedrocks of the American ideal, those are the things that get us out of the darkness. Those are the things that win the war. And those are the things that ensure America's providence in the future.
It isn't guaranteed folks, but nothing ever is. We have an opportunity. We must fight for the country that we love, for the freedoms that were granted to us, not by our government, but by God. Will you stand with me? Notfreeamerica.com. Let me hear from you. Get the book. Read it. Let's chat.
