Freedom movements are everywhere…

Fear not friends… for our beloved Florida and 20 others (21 if you include Wisconsin... let's) ...are “Right to Work” states. You can’t be forced to join ANY organization that you don’t want to be a part of… and they can’t demand money from you that will be used against your wills… with the exception of a few unfortunate government, railroad and airline employees. But then there’s Delta Airlines!!! A non-union legacy carrier that has done better than any other unionized legacy carrier in the country!!! By the way... did they ever find Jimmy??? But I digress...

Excellent interview with Dr. Templin on this show! When a bright mind has the opportunity to shine, my wish is that more people could experience it. Through Rob's chat with Rich Templin, anyone tuned in to this show would have received a full education on the Florida tax system, its inadequacies and the need for people to begin showing up to places where they might have an impact on public policy. If nothing else, it certainly demonstrated a call to action to hold our politicians more accountable to the job they were hired to do - to work for us, the people. Thank you for the great insights!
