A unique opportunity was presented to local Tea Party coordinators in Minnesota to broadcast a one-time radio program on AM 1280 The Patriot in the Twin Cities. NRB’s Concession Stand associate editor Walter Hudson was among those invited to participate.
The first hour covers the origin of the Tea Party movement, how people found their way to it, and the libertarian philosophy which undergirds it. The future of the movement is speculated to be the fight for state’s rights. Hudson explains the importance of restoring and maintaining the distribution of power which the U.S. Constitution established.
The second hour covers, among other things, Minnesota’s gubernatorial recount between Republican state representative Tom Emmer and former Democratic US senator Mark Dayton. The discussion includes insights from Minnesota Majority’s Dan McGrath.
