Authenticity and Integrity Matter

This week’s theme was authenticity and integrity – and the ways that they matter to the conservative movement, and the culture in general.

The Red Cross came under fire for their lack of integrity in handling the massive amount of funds they got for Haiti. Some college students lack the integrity to pay back the loans that they knowingly took. 

There’s a lack of authenticity and integrity in the left’s argument against over the counter birth control, against the words that we use in our everyday lives, and in their criticism of Marco Rubio – for being an everyday kind of guy.

It’s just all kinds of crazy, so we talked about it.

It’s all in the podcast
