Community Solutions Podcast

Apr 12, 2019 After the constitution was written, a woman asked Ben Franklin what kind of government our founders gave us. He replied, "A republic, if you can keep it". There has been a movement at play to dissolve the republic, in favor of a straight democracy. One way they have done this is by advocating to get rid of the electoral college for a presidential election in favor of the national popular vote. Groups like National Popular Vote and FairVote have put a ton of money into this effort to get states to put their electors behind whoever wins the national popular vote, rather than the candidate that actually wins that state. This removes the power from smaller states and places it in the hands of large cities. Minnesota has it's own set of bills to try and implement this terrible, terrible, idea. It is the local push that could potentially push us over the cliff.

Also, Jason recently went to go see the Unplanned movie. It is the true story of Abby Johnson, who was the youngest director in Planned Parenthood history, and she was instantly transformed into being pro-life after assisting in an abortion. Naturally, there is a concerted effort by Hollywood and the MPAA to keep it from being successful. Please support this important movie. You can buy tickets here.
