Is the Conservative Base Getting Amped Up? Alex Marlow Explains
"So Alex, I want to ask you, you're on the front lines you talk to people all the time on your wonderful program. What's your sense of the grassroots? Do you feel as if the base is getting properly amped up for a longer term fight? Because, you know, I've been in this for ten years. You've been in it longer than I have. It seems that the stakes just keep getting higher and higher. Is our is our base prepared for that? I think they're more prepared for it. I'm seeing that people are something that really happened very interesting during the pandemic. Is that you started to see a lot more engagement on a micro level starting in the schools, people looking over their kids shoulders on Zoom and realizing that there was something really horrible that was going on in this country that the indoctrination was starting much earlier that all of a sudden we were getting these things like CRT pushed on us, the anti science masking was being pushed on us. And a lot of these things were happening that I do think brought people back into the fold who were trying the approach to try to punch out and just let a couple of people Washington try to clean up the mess that we have. I think a lot of people have been brought back in at a civic
Stanley Kurtz: Dems Are Rushing to Pass Civics Secures Democracy Act
"This passing if the people listening in this audience don't act immediately I'm worried about it because the Democrats of course are going to go forward completely They've already signed up three Republicans I've seen a fourth Republican on a somewhat related bill It's getting a lot too close for comfort They want to pass this bill it's called the civics secures democracy act a very misleading name that ought to be called critical race theory destroys democracy But it's called the civic secures democracy act and they want to pass it before the August recess because we're talking about many many hundreds of millions of dollars that will go into the coffers of the leftist civics groups pushing their political protests And this is their last chance to get that money before Congress has taken over by the Republicans So they're hoping to sneak it by this summer and they've already signed up almost an effort Republicans to break a filibuster So I'm worried
Why Churches Should Have 'News Ministries'
"I agree with you wholeheartedly that the church is the answer for the things that you were talking about today. But by and large, the church culture doesn't seem to really have the ministry and the things going on in the ministry to address those things. We got like children's ministry, singles ministry. But not things that are really geared to address the things that you discussed today. Not by and large anyway. How would Charlie Kirk consult such a church and helping them to start implementing these things? What a great question. That's a terrific question. And you basically you took my one liner right out of my mouth, which is, so we have children's ministries, some prison ministries. We have financial counseling ministries, women's ministries, men's ministries, but a lot of churches don't have ministries to be able to make to have their congregation make sense of the news. Or what's happening around them. So this is part of what we're trying to do at TPUSA faith and kind of the team that we're creating. We do once a month thing that can be done in any church at any time called freedom night in America, where it's an open setting for questions to be asked for people to come to get advice from their pastors on these issues. I'm so incredibly encouraged to hear you guys have a civic engagement ministry that's such an important step. It's awesome. That's so cool. And that's not political. That's just getting engaged in making the decisions that you want to make. So in the best case scenario, I believe a church should have a full-time pastor where their full-time job is to be the go to person for every contentious issue. So that person is the hey, raise your hand on every Sunday. You got a question about the trans issue. You got to press about CRT. That's the guy schedule lunch or coffee and their calendar all week is dealing with your needs wants and concerns and clarification. That's it.
Christians Believe in Hierarchies
"Look, we as Christians, we believe in hierarchies, hierarchies of order, hierarchies of beauty, hierarchies. The most important thing in my life is Jesus Christ. That will never change. And this is a very important thing. The church should never get that hierarchy mixed up. And we'll talk about tonight about how to properly communicate that where it comes involved in the church. But if you remain silent on the issues of patriotism and civic engagement, oh, that doesn't matter, well then we're all going to have to open prison ministries everybody because we'll be sharing the gospel from somewhere that is not as nice as this room right now. That's not an exaggeration. We can go through examples of that. So that's who I am and that's my story and I'm sticking

What Does It Mean to Be a Man? Is It Worth Defending?
"What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be manly and is manliness? A political and a civic virtue. Is that something that's worth defending in our society today? This is a topic that's being discussed in some of the more intellectual quarters of the right. It seems like it is a debate about whose man and who's a woman, but it's not really about that. This is not a debate about Leah Thomas, and it's not a debate about biological males and women's sports, none of that. It's a debate about whether there is a distinction between males and females that could be described as manliness, and is that something that our society should in a conscious way cultivate and celebrate. Now, the debate sometimes takes a kind of low turn in that the defenders of manliness start looking around and looking particularly at the left and finding very mannish women or you may say unmanly men. And so a lot of this degenerates into a kind of name calling Obama's unmanly because he doesn't know how to throw a baseball. Look at beto o'rourke. This is such a beta male. He's so unmanly. And the consequently, there are efforts to look at women on the left and in the democratic side, Michelle Obama notably. And proclaim them unbelievably manly. And so, at this level, the debate is nothing more than a kind of slinging of epithets. In some cases, by the way, conservatives will leave and turn around and say, you know, libertarians are extremely unmanly and. Manliness is a lot more than this. I think that's really the point. So what is manliness if it's not simply flexing your muscles or showing off tattoos or being able to show your prowess in the MMA ring, what does manliness mean as a political and as a cultural
Why Ralph Reed Created the Faith and Freedom Coalition
"Faith and freedom is one of the foremost reaching out. The grassroots, the bottom line, looking at these issues, if for people who strangely enough may know Ralph Reed, but they don't know faith in freedom or how they're working or maybe they're in a state in which, you know, that movement is still growing. How do people reach out to faith and freedom? How do you find out more about what's going on? And of course, we're going to be back on later in another day talking about some of these other issues, but I wanted to give you just a few minutes to just talk about faith and freedom. Sure. Well, I found it faith and freedom in 2009. After Barack Obama, you know, beat us so badly that it looked like a Harlem globetrotters basketball game. And we were the we were the pickup team that was there to lose. And they completely out hustled us on the ground, the O 8 Obama campaign. I knew we were going to lose and lose badly. When I got a call from a good friend of mine who lived in Akron, Ohio. In that band of counties that stretches from Cleveland east. And he called me and said, I just got my second door to door knock. Visit at the door from an Obama organizer with a clipboard, and I'm a Republican primary voter, and I know they know it. And I went, wow. They've knocked on every door and visited every democratic primary voter. Then they've gone to all the swing voters, all the independent voters. Now they're going to Republican voters. So I started faith and freedom to give us that kind of maximization of turnout among our core voters, which are voters of faith. Both pro life, faithful Roman Catholics, and evangelical Christians. Doug, those two together, the evangelicals are roughly 27% of the electorate. It goes up or down, depending upon the election, but it's roughly 27%. Faithful frequently mass attending Catholics are, again, rough number goes up or down. Is about 10% of the electorate. So you're looking at 37 percent of the entire electorate. It's the biggest single constituency bigger than the minority vote. The union vote and the gay vote combined, and it's over half the Republican vote. And we now have two and a half million members and activists involved in the organization over a million small donors, we have full-time staff and about 14 states now, state organizations and about 30 states. And if people want to find out how they can get involved and how they can make sure that the values that you and I share are represented in the civic arena and in public policy and that Christians have an effective voice in government, they can go to our website, which is FF as in faith and freedom, FF coalition, dot com, and they can sign up and believe me, we'll put them to
Mark Bauerlein and Eric Discuss Millennials and Cancel Culture
"I'm talking to Mark Bauer line. He is the author of a new book, the dumbest generation grows up. Mark, you just said something really, I thought very interesting. That something about the way the Internet works, social media works, kind of groomed this generation to be the Vanguard of cancel culture, that as soon as you see something you don't like, boom, you get rid of it. Now we know that cancel culture is fundamentally Marxism, atheism. It's this idea that I don't need to be gracious to my enemies or love my enemies or have dialog with my enemies or pray for my enemies. I need to wipe them out. It's a secular humanist view of reality. And I think that as the church has taken a step back or allowed itself to be pushed back, this robust view that has existed for such a long time in the west and certainly in the United States for two and a half centuries. It's been pushed away. And really, this is what comes in rather naturally is this brutal Maoist Chinese cultural revolution dictatorship of the youth. I mean, it's a kind of a strange thing to see happening in our time. And yet it's exactly what it is. What is happening? Well, it's interesting you bring up the communist revolutions, China. We could add Cambodia. How much were the very young instruments of the punishments and the discipline that went on? Back then. Certainly, that was true. And the young or their zealous in a way that a lot of older people are not. And so the cancel culture, which you said a few minutes ago, you talked about how delicate our democratic freedoms are. What we've learned is really just how fragile this pluralistic society that we have achieved is. It's almost miraculous that we haven't sunk into these forms of totalitarianism before. What the kids could do in those crucial years when their civic sense was forming is they could create an all affirming reality for themselves, right? They could simply surround themselves with only the agreeable things. They could shut out the disagreeable things. It was the daily mean that that was the phrase for it back in 2010. Why should I have to hear something that offends me? And not only do I have to just leave, no, no. I'm going to make you shut up.
How They Did It: Exposing the 2020 Steal in Wisconsin
"70 special counsel gableman, Wisconsin election commission left a trail of victims. There are 92,000 nursing home residents in Wisconsin, and the Zuckerberg 5 cities in all of those counties, those nursing homes, report a voting rate of a 100%, 100% turnout. Welcome to the Soviet Union, play cut 70. These were not academic exercises. These were real world and had real world consequences and left a trail of victims. We've only been able we've been able to interview a number of people. But we got 92,000 residents in continuing care facilities in Wisconsin and in the Zuckerberg 5 cities. We've been able to look at the numbers and the Zuckerberg 5 cities in all of those counties. Those nursing homes reported a voting rate of a 100% anywhere in between 95% and a 100%. He continues in cut 69 saying that Facebook CEOs $8.8 million into Wisconsin Democrat cities was election bribery in violation of the law cut 69. And one of the important truths that has to be mentioned is recited in chapter one of our report, and that is that the center for tech and civic life, $8 million 800,000 Zuckerberg planned grant with the cities of Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, Kenosha, and Green Bay. Facially violates the Wisconsin law prohibiting election bribery. Cut 71 is an example, just one example of many as we theorized of an elderly person who was taken advantage of and had ballots cast in their name in the 2020 election. Now, some of you might say, Charlie, this is not enough to potentially tilt the election. I want to remind you that Wisconsin was decided by just thousands of votes, especially in these key areas. If you subtract the illegally administered
New Election Review Details Voter Fraud At Nursing Homes
"I want to actually finish the first report I was talking about. They're tied together. So there was this special counsel that was launched in Wisconsin to try to get to the bottom of what happened in Wisconsin in the 2020 election and found out that Zuckerberg broke the law. The center for technology is civic life broke the law, and the Wisconsin special counsel found that 91 nursing homes had 95% to a 100% voter turn. I mean, you have a 100% voter turnout in a nursing home. That's insane. We're supposed to kind of take it. And this should be nationwide news. This is an open invite to any Democrat that wants to come on this program. Please justify to me. How a nursing home can have 100% voter turnout. That is what an independent nonpartisan nonpolitical special counsel has issued in his report. This is not QAnon. It's not some right wing thing. This is a nonpartisan former Supreme Court Justice in Wisconsin, who has a pretty amazing reputation to defend. The Guardian, of course, we should cite foreign papers when we talk about our election says widely criticized Wisconsin report Raheem repeats falsehoods and argument to decertify the 2020 election. Of course, they don't get into the fact that at nursing homes, they have a hundred percent voter turnout at some of the 95 to a 100% voter turnout at 91 of them. So it's very simple. Our thesis and the reporter is American Sam Levine from New York City. Art thesis remains the same. Who is the same on November 8th 2020? It's now the same a year and a half later, which is this. Which is that there was an operation, first and foremost to increase the supply of the ballots. Dare I say inflate the amount of ballots out there debased the value of ballots increase the supply. When you increase the supply of ballots, you then increase the opportunity for criminals and crooks to be able to intercept those ballots and launder them through the system.

"It would never be perfectly in tune. And it would change over time. Physically, the tolerance, the distance of the grooves, is so tight that, you know, having a crew with a diamond cutting saw doing it, it's never gonna be perfect. You know, it's just not gonna happen. And then over time, as you know, asphalt expands and contracts, then just that amount of it's going to change the pitch of random parts of it. So as long as my thought was as long as it resembles the song, we're in good shape. This wasn't the only problem with the road. In fact, the road you just heard us drive, it isn't even the original one. The original road was in a residential part of Lancaster. I remember saying to my friend Peter pointing at the musical road sign and they go, well, that's not going to last more than a week. And I said, see those people in the condos over there and over there. They're going to complain like forever. And complain they did. Within three weeks of being unveiled, the road was paved over, and who can blame residents if this is what you are hearing 24/7. But the road found a lot of love as well. People pushed for the local government to preserve it. A month after being paved over, the road was recreated outside of town, far from any housing. And this love continues, though the Honda civic musical road is not perfect. It has become a beloved attraction. Sure, there are people who criticize the quality of the road at its sour notes. But they're also countless videos of people driving it with their friends and letting out big laughs as the road comes to a close. Online, the road is voted number two out of 30 attractions in the area. Honestly, Lancaster is small. That's more attractions than I anticipated. The reviews are joyful, sharing memories from driving it with their significant others or children whenever they can. In my favorite, the reviewer describes being blindfolded on their first trip down the road, so it would be a surprise. That was really cool. That was fun. That was honestly, it was as good as I remembered. It was just a nice time. And it's just fun. It's just fun to be on a road trip with you again. Right? It's just nice being in the car. Yeah, a little road trips. This is our Empire State Building. This is like, I'll meet you at the top of the musical road. In ten years. Truly. So go check it out.

"We are stranded on the side of the road from Lancaster, California. Kelsey, describe what we can see right now. So in front of us, there's not a bunch. There's definitely some cars behind us, but other than that, there's a few little buildings out there. Yeah. We're in on a flat deserted, basically deserted road. We're, again, everything is the same shade of tan. It's just like scrub and sand surrounding us. It's very beautiful. And then behind us, which we're about to go dry. Is the musical road. The musical road. 13 years ago, my friend Kelsey and I went on a road trip. We were 19 and we had all the time in the world to explore. While driving around and blasting music, Kelsey remembered something she had recently seen in a TV commercial. A road with a song carved into the pavement. I'm Kimmy Gregory, and this is Atlas obscura. A celebration of the world's strange, incredible and wondrous places. Today we're going on a road trip where the road isn't just the journey. It's the destination. We're going to learn about the science and engineering on how to make a road play music. But for me, this isn't just a musical road. It's a trip down memory lane. That's after this. Nothing quite peaks are curiosity about the world, and inspires a sense of all,.

Executive Director Josh Abbotoy Tells Us About American Reformer
"Folks. I'm talking to Josh ABBA toy. He is the executive director I neglected to mention earlier of American reformer American reformer dot org. Tell us Josh, what is American reformer? Thanks, Eric. American reformer is a journal for Protestant civic and cultural engagement. We launched this Nate Fisher and Aaron wren are the two individuals that launched this over the summer. I joined about two months ago. I was so compelled by the vision. The idea is that Protestant Christians need their own platform for strong emerging voices who take a rigorous approach to the important cultural issues of the day. So you probably are aware of some great magazines that already do this with a broader platform like first things publications like that. We love those publications, but we also sat down and said, okay, we also need to be intentionally cultivating the next generation of thought leaders from the Protestant circles, right? We love our Catholic brethren. But in some ways, the discussion is sometimes more advanced among Catholics. And we want to be encouraging protestants to be engaging on these issues at a very thoughtful level. So that's what we're doing. But it's all with an action orientation. So we want to be writing for people who are in positions to make changes. So pastors, seminary students, seminary professors, lay leaders and people of influence in their local churches. That's really our core
What's Your Civic Responsibility to 'Stop the Steal'?
"Welcome back to one on one with hands once again of the heritage foundation. Hans, we have to look forward. We have to hope that the states do what is incumbent upon them to make fraud as hard as possible. What is what is the role of the individual who's concerned? My wife is a trained election officer. So, you know, she does her bet. Every day we get calls here at this show. I get DMs, I get texts from people who say, that's it. I'm done. I'm not voting again. I'm a conservative, but they stole it last time, and there's no point. Now I can say to them, oh really? Did they steal Virginia? So this isn't just job a job for you or for state secretaries. Everybody has a responsibility do they not? Oh, oh, yeah, they do. And look, one of the reasons Georgia passed an election reform bill was because of a group of grassroots activists, some of whom I know, they all got together and said, we gotta have Georgia fix some of the problems we saw in last year's election, and they started besieging. Their state legislators down there and the legislators got interested. And that resulted in that election reform Bill, getting past. Look, the other thing that folks ought to do, besides being a poll watcher, working in a polling place is this. What has started happening, especially I know you've covered this. What has started happening at school board meetings across the country. Parents have started showing up at these meetings that normally they're always open to public, nobody shows up. Right. But Dave started showing up and they've started asking questions about the critical race theory propaganda being taught to their kids. In the county governments that run elections across the country, they have county election boards, and their meetings are public meetings. I was on two, one county such county board in Georgia, one in Virginia, we would have public meetings and hardly anybody would show up. Start showing up at those county board meetings and start asking questions. Are they doing basic things like comparing their county, voter registration list to the states, DMV list? To find people who've moved. It's all need to be taken off the list to find checking with state vital records departments of how people who have died so you can take them off the list. Start asking questions. And if the folks on the county election board aren't doing their job, get them replaced. Or run yourself.

And then the fact that I actually got to meet him and work with him, work under him, really, as the Secretary of State, it is just remarkable as ainsley as you were reading the statement and talking about his life in the previous segment in the previous interview. You realize that this man was such a man of consequence. And a consummate public servant, serving all of those years. And I was surprised to read. He was 84. Because in many ways, to me, he was ageless. In addition to all of the amazing work that he did as a military leader, one thing that people might not remember is he started an organization called America's promise. And that really encouraged civic engagement and volunteer work. And there was a little red wagon logo, and I'm a good friend as a race sale who had worked for president George H. W. Bush, then worked in his office and correspondence. And she would tell me such amazing stories about him. And then fast forward. I remember as a deputy press secretary standing in the back of the room, the east room one day and there was a, I believe it was Karzai, who achman Karzai from Afghanistan was giving a speech. And I was standing in the back of the room and Colin Powell just happened to be next to me. And I remember being very impressed by augment caramelized speech. And I said something to Colin Powell I said, wow. He is a very impressive. And Colin Powell gave me advice that I've lived with ever since, and he said, Dana, just beware of people who might be want to be dictators who speak very good English. And that was so interesting. But if you think about all the leaders that we've seen, come up through the ranks that America likes to support and then unfortunately turns out to be somebody that you question in the end. I would also say that he was a great stature. The way that he conducted himself, I really commend his books to people out there, young people who are looking to learn about leadership. He really was a consummate professional. Dana perino, who served in the Bush administration, reflected on the passing of general Colin
How Private Money From Facebook’s CEO and Wife Altered the 2020 Election
"Doctor William Doyle, welcome to the Mike Gallagher show. I appreciate you joining us. Thank you very much for having me, Mike. My pleasure. You know, I know we want to I don't want to drag you into the political wars that are going on and president Trump is maintaining that the election wasn't legit and everything and there's a lot of anger. There's a lot of frustration. I want to get into the nuts and bolts of what you're study found and I poured through these articles. I think it's a lot of it is the basis of Molly Hemingway's new book, but can you share with us an overview of how Mark Zuckerberg and his wife directed literally hundreds of millions. I think $419 million into communities into areas that Biden really needed and how that plays out. Try to break it down for us in layman's terms for a moment if you will. Okay, let me give it a shot. Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated out of their own personal resources, not through that they have a private foundation that they normally would do something like this through, but they went through they use their own private resources. And they funneled those resources into a little sleepy Chicago based nonprofit called the center for technology and civic life. Before 2019, their budget was about $1.8 million a year. And they seem to be engaged in pretty neutral in a tech related election issues. But then in 2020, they experienced this giant inflow of money from Mark Zuckerberg from its personal resources. How giant. It ended up totaling $350 million through that one organization. That $419.5 million figure includes another organization that they invested a lot in called the center for election innovation and research or CEI are. But our main focus is on CTCL because it was up $350 million gift or donation or whatever you want to call it to CTCL that had the most significant impact according to our research on the election
"civic" Discussed on The Purple Principle
"The extreme real quick. I would say that senator manchin again being independent or purple if you will and your organization has word purple in it there. There's immense power that senator mission suddenly has because he is purple. If you will can you imagine not having to sit down. There's no reason for you to sit down with your colleagues on both sides and have their input. The senate is the most unique body of government in the world governing body in the world. It's deliberate so there are times where being not locked into a party structure which is rarer than it used to be empower. Somebody so senator. Joe manchin is like that. Today new hampshire legislature. We have The largest legislature in the country citizen legislature. We have four hundred state representatives. I'm one of them. I love it of made a lot of friends and As civics person governmental person. I love going to state house. I have many friends from i. Hope on both sides of the aisle and I did have some bipartisan support. For my civics bills so that is crucial. I if anything is ultra partisan it's gonna have province but if you can get bipartisan involvement than what moves forward can be more successful so anyway What you folks who is very interesting. The pro principal and Good on you for what you're trying to do. That was colonel. Michael moffitt republican legislator from new hampshire who civics education. Bill was passed by both houses and signed into law the summer but we should say that some legislative efforts have fallen into partisan gridlock around the country with republicans and democrats differing over the definition of civic subject matter and concerns about federal funding for civics which is currently a miniscule amount of the overall education budget but a bill to expand federal funding co sponsored by democratic. Senator chris coons and republican senator. John cornyn is still stuck in committee here in my home. State colonel moffitt. Bill had pretty decent bipartisan support. Could be because of the large number of independent and split ticket. Voters in new hampshire and it could also be due to the educational efforts of six one. One one produced by new hampshire public radio widely popular throughout the state. Both on the airwaves. And in the classroom we spoke to civics went on producers and co host nick and hannah about some teams important to purple principal listeners. As well as some of their own favourite episodes okay. My favorite series that we did was the declaration revisited which is looking at the declaration of independence specifically how a delta people not included. And the you know and it's wonderful promises. So we didn't episode about black americans the declaration native americans and women through the declaration of sentiments. So you know this reexamination of our tried and true held up foundational documents. I fall madly in love with whatever subject recovering at the time. And currently it's supreme court cases that you absolutely must know. But we're going through civil rights cases and i had the unbelievable privilege of interviewing to descendants of plaintiffs in to supreme court cases so i got to interview the great great granddaughter of dread scott and i got to interview the daughter of fred komatsu. My father learned about the constitution in high school. He was born in oakland. california attended. mont high school was just like any other american kid and hung out with his friends but he was paying attention to The constitution that day in class and he thought he had rights as an american citizen. And you start to once you infuse that human element in these stories you actually start to understand you understand what it was for a man to end up in an internment camp after believing that you should not forcibly remove and relocate an american citizen without any sort of due process. Nick i believed in one episode might have been one about maybe the democratic party at the end you were talking about. Oh it's very interesting episode because we kind of assume that there's been these designations of red being republican and blue being democratic for a long period of time. But you informed us. That's not the case and at some point in the episode. You actually said to your listenership hold onto your little purple hat. And that's our favourite colour here. That's you know. i'm afraid that might be. That might be the only purple reference that i've snuck him but i promise you will not be the last. I truly truly did have my mind blown when i learned that read. Didn't mean republican and blue didn't mean democrat and also had my mind blown at just how the two parties have swapped completely one hundred percent one a complete one eighty s from what they used to be since they were first formed and that they could do so again so perhaps the purple is a very sensible safe inflatable rowboat to be on on oceans of red and oceans of blue. That are constantly changing. I know you did didn't episode on independence and that was particularly interesting for us. I don't want it to sound also pollyannaish but the greatest joy. I have personally had working on. This show is having my mind changed. It does all the time to having things that i believed were true. Fall like sand beneath my feet. And i think to what perhaps the independent mindset can allow for is possibly a greater openness to conversation with people of different perspectives. Because it certainly in both my life and on this show been through that that my mind has been changed that things have been revealed to be untrue. That was hannah. Mccarthy and nick kappa. Dj of the popular civics one on radio show and podcast also used as an educational resource throughout the country. It's like schoolhouse rock. And the simpsons civics episode rolled into one contains. Seventy six by city of washington was built on a stagnant swamp. Some two hundred years ago but with quite a bit more of that. Npr research and credibility over two hundred and fifty civics one episodes and counting. My personal favorites are not surprisingly on independence third parties but in light of recent history the episode on peaceful transition of power also resonates quite a bit. And i'm going to be that high school overachiever. Who raises her hand and says i love them all but you've got to check out their starter kit. How a bill really becomes a law even before the other two hundred. Thanks also to dr laura hammock and colonel michael moffitt for speaking with us for this episode in today's polarized climate. We're not gonna get a lot of agreement on many issues. But that's all the more reason to fund and implement civics education as widely as possible just to make sure there's common ground beneath the hyper partisan battles at that day job of mine. Civic genius were all about less division more action and strengthening our civic culture check us out at our civic genius dot org. There's a number of other committed. Non doing great work in the civic space such as is civics and the center for civic education which administers the we the people contest. A more complete list is included in our show notes next time on the purple principal. We're going to look at two of america's most difficult civic undertakings the abolition of slavery in the eighteen hundreds and the civil rights struggle for reconstruction to the current era. We'll be speaking with. Dr omar ali professor of history at unc greensboro and the author of in the balance of power independent black politics and third party movements in the united states and with the book basically does is it tells.

"civic" Discussed on The Purple Principle
"On that a little. Bit short new hampshire. We have requirements fourth graders for example have to take some instruction in civics new hampshire government and history and often firms. You'll see it. Fourth graders visit the state out. It is wonderful to see these nine. Ten year olds comfort statehouse and get tourists and run a little bit about the Actual building where legislating takes place so field trips that are wonderful in this eighth grade and also high school credit requirements again. The problem with the credit requirements is that if there's no assessments that go with those than this very uneven application of civics instruction around the state. Every school is different. Every teacher is different in all too often. My sense has been that. There's been a rack of emphasis on the actual knowledge. Fundamentals of how government works so. I wonder if you've had this experience of trying to explain. Us politics to. Let's say someone from almost any other country even a country as close as canada. They're just completely baffled at the complexity and the challenges of governing in the us. Have you had that experience. I have. I actually did a buck with a afghan american. Hollywood actor interpreter ghanistan. He somebody who had to take the civics naturalization test to become citizens so i've had conversations with people from afghanistan fahim fazli my co author to canada in last year's election. I know that is confusing to not just americans who don't understand the electoral college you know in two thousand sixteen hillary clinton get three million more votes than did donald trump but donald trump became president. So some people scratch their heads both in america and in canada and other countries. And say why. How does this work. in fact i'm i think most americans don't understand who electors are. We saw in january sex and we had the trouble in washington about you know the elect- doors and certifying the election. Are you sometimes a little bit surprised to our. Let's say disappointed with lack of civics knowledge from some of the newer. Legislators some of the younger legislators who perhaps didn't benefit from his much civic education. I think in most legislatures the newer the freshman legislators certainly have a learning curve to they need to learn about the processes but in terms of basic knowledge of government is spectrum. I think some new legislators well-versed in how government works and some are clearly not and they learn as they go in fact in the the house. Education committee hearing committee members. Pulled some questions off the test in question the naturalization test and ask those questions in committee. We kind of had some fun with that. So michael can you give us a couple of examples of some of the tougher and maybe a couple of the easier questions. That high school students presumably college students. And maybe someday your fellow legislators will have to be able to answer. Sure you can go to the internet and you can just Ask or pension hundred question naturalization citizenship test war the hundred and twenty eight question naturalization citizenship test around the two versions so some of the questions are historical some the crisis after do like multiple choice questions in some cases you know which of these persons was president united states. There are some history chronological type questions. Trying to remember rose question about eisenhower. That came up. what was his contribution you know. What was his background to become president here. Well if i remember correctly for my. Us history classes Wasn't eisenhower recorded by both parties to be a presidential candidate. Yeah generalized our was courted by the democrats and republicans. You know he was kind of a non aligned. Independent person as a general was military officer myself. And you wherever you're commander in chief says you surrender your personal sovereignty to you. Know take orders so when he came a independent citizen retired general popular democrats running. Republicans wanted him eventually. He came out as a republican and was elected in nineteen fifty to heal as you probably saw a lot of our topics in our audience are independent or unaffiliated. Voters in some states called non-partisans Certainly a high percentage of that in new hampshire. But there's not a lot of mention of independence in high school and college textbooks and in the media Generally do you think that is a problem when you have anywhere from thirty five to forty five percent of the population in a category. That's not really well addressed in the curriculum or in the media. Sure the notion of political parties. Of course if you go back seventy seven there were no political parties but inevitably factions. Involved out of the the you know the federal and the anti-federalists and but we had basically two party system essentially for a couple of centuries and Third party candidates hat do happen or do arise so the two party system. I think needs to be discussed and Analyzed and we locked into this two party system or is there room for third parties are other parties that could have significance. I listen to your podcast about alaska. And i was fascinated to learn how few people in alaska after listening to your show are affiliated was fascinated by that and Here in new hampshire. You have about thirty percent. Republican about thirty percent democrat and about forty percent unaffiliated independent so in terms of civics discussion. Civic testing civics. You know classes. The notion of focusing on independence and the roles that independence could play or do play in. Our process is very interesting to me and of course when both parties in most states are in the minority they have to reach out to these independence in that i think is a healthy thing for either both parties to after. Listen to people reach out to unaffiliated voters and bring them into the process. Get their support. Get their votes. That kind of leads to our final question. we ask all our guests to show a bit of purple. And as you're a republican legislator could you name someone from the other side of the aisle a notable democrat doesn't have to be living now but in recent memory that you particular respect for well. There are a lotta great democrats in our history. I in my opinion course. I am a republican. Obviously and so. I tend to trend a little bit more conservative but There are many democrats that i admired in the past and buyer. Now currently senator. Joe manchin of west virginia is a democrat a fairly independent thinking democrat who works with With republicans very well. I i really admire the fact that he is capable of taking a more independent course which has given him enormous power right at the moment with a fifty fifty senate suggest senator joe manchin. I really admire and from the past. Senator joe lieberman liked him a lot. He was the senator from connecticut. Very likable guy. In very reasonable i thought. Interestingly senator lieberman was taken out in the primary which you may recall by very liberal candidate and then senator lieberman win is an independent and get tremendous republicans support in some democrats support and he regained his seat as an independent and in doing so chose progress over partisanship problem solving over polarization mainstream. Over.

So it was a full house there wage. But it's it's something we I mean main part talk about this a fair bit. Where were quite aware about how white male and privileged we are which doesn't always make it easier long been aware of it. Actually sometimes makes it even worse but compared to these lists the really really useful generalists or anyone could use in their work and should thank you. I mean, you know, I won't hide from you that a side motivation was that after spending the last eight years exclusively in Civic Tech. I start to think that maybe the way that you can be successful in Civic check is a way that we all ought to think about tech more generally in terms of what we're contributing to and how we go about the work of making new things better things in my contention is is more important that they be better than that they be knew exactly. Yeah the focus on actually improving something right rather than, Georgia. Invading it exactly I'm thinking you always can come in with the tools that you will have always used..

"Although many people in the UK have been Australia would recognize it too. It's the idea that we should bring the best of tech from the private sector and you can think of that a number of ways whether it's people or practices or actual Technologies to the public sector and that we should have public digital Goods box cutter as good as the goods we can purchase. So you were Government website where maybe registered to vote or register your car or you know pay your tax should be just as good as what you experience when you go on a social network or an e-commerce site. And all of the mechanisms to do that, so you differentiate them between like public sector Tech and Civic Tech so off I think has an explicit connotation of improvement. I think government Tech is more inclusive and I I chose Civic Tech specifically because I was trying in the book time to speak to the people who want to improve the situation of government Tech in the US definitely in the UK in a lot of larger countries, you had heavy procurement infrastructures and a lot of bureaucracy International level government certainly and then sometimes in local government you have low capacity. So the existing government Tech may not be everything that people Hope from public digital goods and Civic Tech explicitly takes a perspective that People from the private sector where people who have private sector expertise and experience in Tech have a role to play in improving that alongside the public servants who have chosen government as a career from the beginning. So it's almost like the activists word for public sectors like the person who wants to make real change the person wants to make real change. And and one thing that that many people claim for it. It's just it's not just government tax so it can be technology for Mutual Aid or four people right without the participation of a government who want to have a better interaction as a communion or something like that. I was actually a community Tech I guess it all these yes kind of ways of slicing it..

I. Never knew you know. Jumping into water belly-flopping into on your back is actually could potentially fuck you up considering you know depending on how high you jump and how you enter the water.

Maybe this isn't always cracked up to be maybe we shouldn't be as materialistic as we are at the moment maybe you should be obsessed with even celebrities have you seven?

I think for Simpson's suffered a love your data think maybe a couple of deaths swallow to show by member Simpson's May. Be Futurama.

They just paid puppies, but for some reason, the media and maybe also. We tried to convince ourselves that they were more than the sum. They were more than what they actually did a screen. There were a far more interesting person they had layers. They were relates a aboard there could be like are there could be our friend this bullshit right by reality multimillionaire narcissistic actors who have essentially been able to beat the odds right?
