Is Trump a conservative? What is "conservatism"? We listen to pro-populism commentary from William F. Buckley -- conservative icon and founder of National Review. Why did WFB trust the voice of "the people" over the "intellectuals" of America? If today's "conservatism" allegedly entails an open borders Davos-style globalist agenda, might "populism" actually be preferable? Also, we further review "race relations" in America. Have they worsened under President Obama? Might Donald Trump -- who seems to enjoy surprisingly strong support from African Americans -- actually improve the situation? Callers weigh in. Plus, we discuss the pros & cons of Ted Cruz, and review the current conflagration between Trump and Cruz. How perilous? And Go Broncos! With music and listener calls.
