CU Talks: New Year! New Show! ep.1401

44080336[1]We debut a new format for 2014 – three hosts, one hour, one day a week.  James Pisano (The Chief), Nikolaos Dimopolous (Nikos) and Leslie P  – passionate about politics, passionate about America, eager to grow the Conservative movement, and figuring out how to do that. It’s going to be a busy, crazy year – come along for the ride!

Well, we tried for an hour, but there’s so much to say, we ran over. We probably always will.  First we introduced ourselves and the new format, what we expect from the coming year, then we dove right in. We mentioned Obamacare, likely to have at least a bit part in every episode. We talked about the Ryan budgets, and the budget misdertion process overall. We discussed our shared hatred of the 17th Amendment and the it weakened the states, and led to this massive centralization that’s hurting the nation so badly right now. Then we talked about the 16th Amendment – just a teaser on that one really – but the very existence of an Income Tax changed the relationship of the individual to the federal government. Change not really for the better.

Then, because it got depressing, Leslie searched desperately for a way to find the happy ending, the positive outcome – she thinks she succeeded, at least enough to allow her to face another day!
