We are facing a critical moment in America's history – will we continue to further the ideological divide or can we truly keep this the United States? Joining us today is Dr. Richard Land (ses.edu), President of Southern Evangelical Seminary. He looks at the growing discontent among fly-over folks at being unheard and censored. And media does nothing but throw gasoline on the fire of division with their biased reporting and alternative definitions of not only the truth but even individual words. The education system is to blame as well, teaching children from a young age that this is a horrible and racist country. Is there anything we can do to turn this highly divisive tide?

A mighty whirlwind of angst is blowing through the country and the result is a distinct division between red and blue areas.  Are we headed for a revolution or a civil war?  Is secession of certain areas around the corner?  Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com), author and free speech activist, joins us to discuss how red and blue areas are stuck in the their own echo chambers, causing the division and rising tension in this country.  The totalitarian tactics of the left are alienating people on both sides and it's only a matter of time before the division becomes irreparable.

In this time of intense division, it is easy to see those from the other side of the ideological aisle as being the enemy.  But the first step in bridging the divide is to try and have a conversation.  John reaches out on today's podcast to Mark Sommer, an award-winning radio and print journalist – and noted progressive – to have that conversation.  They use climate change and alternative fuels as their conversation catalyst.  Unless people can push aside their differences and come up with realistic solutions that work on the ground, the divide doesn't get bridged and nothing is ever accomplished.
