If you could not attend our last SATP meeting with District Attorney Nico LaHood and a renowned Australian speaker, Nick Adams, you missed a very interesting event. Mr. LaHood engaged in a lively discussion with the SATP on sanctuary cities and illegal immigration. Nick Adams told us about his relentless pursuit of the American dream. CLICK HERE to view a slideshow and hear both speakers’ remarks.

At that meeting I announced that I have an opportunity to host a conservative radio show on KLUP 930. The show will run every Saturday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

My goal for this show will be to spread the Tea Party message of personal liberty, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. 

My objectives are:

  1. Grow our Tea Party organization by reaching a new audience with our message, so that we become a larger and better funded organization.
  2. Provide a platform for local conservative candidates to address a receptive audience.
  3. Obtain sponsors for the show who want to promote their businesses’ products or services while supporting the conservative movement. These sponsorships can become an important source for funding the SATP PAC.  I am paying for the show but will take no money from it. Any profits made will go to the SATP.

As I prepare for the show, I am creating a list of contacts for guests, co-hosts, and guest hosts. If any of you have suggestions, please let me know (click here). Our relationship with KLUP will open the doors to many high-profile guests.

We plan to do some broadcasts from the Lion and Rose in the Rim so that we can include audience participation in some of our shows. We will also have call-ins and “man on the street” interviews. This would be something like what you’ve seen on the Jesse Waters show. I believe this could lead to some humorous exchanges.

Some general topic content could include:

  • What is the Tea party? (Include campus interviews)
  • IRS targeting conservative groups
  • Student debt and are college degrees worthwhile
  • Obamacare: Congressional exemptions, impact on employers/employees, how it drives up costs
  • The cost of over-regulation
  • Tax reform and paying “Your fair share”
  • Welfare reform
  • Getting government spending under control
  • “Bathroom” bill
  • Illegal and legal immigration
  • Destruction of historical monuments
  • Corporate/government cronyism
  • Local political issues
  • Straus and other RINOs
  • Redistricting
  • Election fraud and voter integrity
  • How the left distorts language to mislead
  • Gun control
  • What is a Constitutional republic?
  • Federalism
  • Good intent and bad outcomes: history of failed government programs that continue, regardless
  • Could an EMP plunge America back into the dark ages?
  • The future of driverless cars
  • How to better secure your home against break-ins
  • The anthropogenic climate change myth

What can you do to help?

  • I need help locating and acquiring sponsors for the show. Please help spread the word and refer any business or organization leaders who may wish to become sponsors for this show.
  • I will also need assistance researching the various issues we will be addressing on air. If you have time to contribute, we need you.
  • If you have recommendations on guests, topics, or sponsors, please let us know.
  • If you are interested in helping by conducting “man on the street” interviews recorded on your smart phone, let me know.

This is going to require a major time commitment. I considered turning down this opportunity, because the last thing I needed to do right now is add something new on my plate. However, I think the upside for the SATP is potentially too significant to pass up. So I have decided to jump in and hope I can swim.  We’ll find out soon.
