Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn - Apr 17, 2016 - Hr 3

April 17, 2016

An audio review of August 2015 statements from the Chairman of the Colorado Republican Party on subjects including: Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump and golf. Can Republican voters in Colorado be assured of the neutrality of their party leadership? Can we feel confidence in the integrity of the present system? Also, we ponder Benjamin Franklin's dictum on the need to "question authority" to preserve our republic, and consider Thomas Jefferson's belief that "the ultimate powers" of a society are best left in the hands of the "people themselves." Plus, we listen to Trump advisor Paul Manafort discuss delegate strategy heading into Cleveland, and we replay a classic 1987 news broadcast from anchorman Dan Rather regarding a young Donald Trump's involvement in the Wollman Ice Rink restoration in New York City. With music and listener calls.
