The Clueless Protest
By Mr. David Zanotti

The ads are on the radio. "Call your Senator. Tell him/her to oppose the Republican healthcare plan." But here is the question: have any of these people read the Republican plans in either the House or Senate version? Has a a single play actor talking head on cable news read the new plans or the existing plan so that they have a single clue on what the bills do?

Or is all the hype just talking points by the Progressive Establishment that NEVER wants to give an ounce of decision making power back to the people?

Here is an idea: instead of calling the Senate how about we call AARP and the other special interest groups and ask them if they have ever read Obamacare or the current reform measures. 

Just a thought...

The Declaration
By Mr. David Zanotti

We celebrate this document every year. We can never talk about it too much. Sadly, we have stopped teaching this foundational element to America's children. The 4th of July comes and goes as a picnic with fireworks but we forget the cause of the celebration. We forget The Declaration of Independence. We can change this and we must.

Every week the Roundtable produces programing on The Public Square that can help everyone remember the first principles upon which our Liberties stand. Our archive of programs on the 4th of July can help enhance the education of the next generation of leaders. All of these programs are free. So is The Public Square phone app which enables you to play all these programs in your car as you travel together.

Please, try out the latest 4th of July Special, right here:http://thepublicsquare.com/independence-day/

Enjoy the show.

Sitting Ducks
By Mr. David Zanotti

It was a political shooting. A hate crime against Donald Trump and against Republican members of Congress. The Facebook page stated it in print. The shooter specifically asked if the people on the field were Republicans. This cannot be covered up. A man with a high powered rifle staged a military style attack against Republican members of Congress on a baseball field. He got off 100 rounds before Capital Police shot him and ended the potential massacre. Senator Rand Paul stated it simply "We were sitting ducks". 

Will we learn anything from this tragedy?

When you are out of ideas
By Mr. David Zanotti

Progressives are out of ammo. Their signature policy of the 20th Century is marooned on the island of misfit toys. The fantasy that centralized government can do much of anything well is now hemmed in by a 20 trillion dollar national debt and a taxpayer base that refuses to pay more for less. All the Progressive Democrats/Republicans have left is the politics of the middle school playground. They are cool and Donald Trump and the Deplorables are not. Thats all folks.

The irony here is that IF Progressives ever had a chance to win the public debate on policy ideas, now would be their time. The President of the United States is more than a few books short on how government works. His own party is deeply conflicted with a number of Senators more comfortable making CNN and "The Times and Post" happy than representing the people who elected them. 

IF Progressives had ideas that worked now would be the time to lead. Instead they are consumed with stopping a President whose own Party has taken away the "Go" button. The campaign of 2018 has now begun. The theme is set: "Progressives are cool. Donald Trump is not. So vote Progressive."

Apparently that's all they've got.

Greater Than Less Than
By Mr. David Zanotti

We just left The Public Square studio after a long conversation about the proposed Trump budget. The first question we asked was basic math. Which is bigger: 3.7 Billion or 4.1 billion? The answer does seem pretty obvious, right. Then how come the US media and Progressives in Congress cannot tell the difference? Please be listening this Friday to The Public Square where we discuss the politics of "greater than versus less than". We will uncover the most basic math error in the way Congress and the media talk about the budget. And we promise -- it won't be boring.
