THE MORNING SHOW
President of the John Birch Society
Ever since its founding in 1958 by Robert Welch, The John Birch Society has been dedicated to restoring and preserving freedom under the United States Constitution.
As Robert Welch himself explained, members of The John Birch Society come from all walks of life and are active throughout the 50 states on local, regional and national levels.
United by a strong belief in personal freedom and limited government, plus a sense of duty, members of The John Birch Society have educated millions of Americans on the appropriate role of government.
-But isn’t the John Birch Society a right-winged extremist group with hate-filled messages? One of our listeners thinks so and wonders why we would even give someone from this group a forum to speak. Mr. McManus addresses the myths and lies.
-Could a gold standard be possible?
-Why the JBS is profoundly opposed to Communism, Fascism, Totalitarianism, Marxism, Nazism
-Shrinking the government to 20%
-A republic vs. a democracy
-How the Constitution is being betrayed
-Taking back the country by way of the House of Representatives
and more! Great show!
