Kind of a continuation of the next few days I wanna continue what we started yesterday.
-- Getting up and actually voting.
It stems from a conversation I told you about where I was having dinner with some friends of mine and they sit there aren't sure if they -- You know folk because they didn't know what -- vote for.
Electric but I went.
And the camera stuff.
Am -- being pumped.
I couldn't believe that friends of mine were telling me.
That and these are people that know what it's going on the no mistakes but they didn't know if they were gonna vote.
I thought if we don't have.
50% turnout in this country under these conditions.
Words come to mind.
When he was when they finish with C.
Constitution was walking on the street the story goes and a woman came -- and said what have you given us mister Franklin.
And he said a Republican man.
If you can keep it.
If people aren't awake now.
What would it take to wake them up.
How much more trouble needs to happen in this country before people say I've got to choose sides sign.
Have to figure this out on my own and pick up my responsibility and not just my rights.
So tonight I thought I'd get a few people on that I trust.
And have a conversation we've invited -- studio audience -- We've had a couple minutes to converse before hand and I think they all kind of feel probably like you do and I do you don't really trust anybody in Washington.
You don't know who to trust since oh you're looking at all of these candidates in like.
I don't always is the right guy is this the right woman.
It was two years ago that Americans flooded the polls to vote for change and we were promised hope.
And instead that we were given despair.
We knew that jobs was the number one issue we asked for jobs.
And Americans were given unemployment.
We wanted to rid the nation of politics of the past.
And instead we're given a country now that I can even recognize.
Gonna talk about the politics of the past the -- it's almost like we have put it on a rocket ship to the moon.
The politics of the past as you'll see during this hour have just been.
Energized -- too unbelievable and unrecognizable points.
So now we're two years and a fundamental transformation of our republic we now have Obama care which is 16 of our economy.
We have a president who is added -- three trillion dollars of debt on his watch.
There are record numbers of families on food stamps our freedoms are being stripped away from buying sugary soda to being able to dig in the sand -- the beach in Florida.
The government is encroaching on our freedoms and fundamentally transforming nudging our way of life.
We're being detached from the constitution people are called crazy if they actually want to even read the constitution we have people -- In Washington that say who feel the constitution find it in the Gaza -- an ally -- let somebody else do that.
They're being separated from religion.
We are being nudged away further and further from our founding fathers.
It has been two years.
And -- people stand yet from 11 week from today.
The time will be to get off your couch or to go early.
And before you go to work and start -- day go to the voting Booth.
Will -- seen record numbers.
Will we see I think mid term elections have been since the sixties in the thirty and 40% turnout rate can we.
Can we get it above 50%.
-- really only about 40% of this country at this point.
Part of the problem with.
My program is that.
Occasionally I will say things where I AM.
And I have been a throw the bums out there is seen all the people in Washington the Republicans and the Democrats -- the problem.
I believe that be true the parties.
Are the problem George Washington's words are being lived out right now.
But that doesn't mean there are good people in Washington there are good representatives in Washington -- are.
That are standing there in a lions -- every day.
We need to arm them with the best people we can.
When it comes to certain voting who literally -- What do they need.
What are we looking for.
How do we get our country back on course America -- a week now.
Now maybe we need just a little bit more focus.
Wanted to show you some of the good guys that need your help from Minnesota congresswoman Michelle -- these are three people that I trust.
There is do you talk congressman Jason Jason -- it's Jason first came to mind when or came to my attention when he.
There was a story printed in a local newspaper that he was embarrassing his daughter.
War and he went to I think it was a Wal-Mart Jason was at a Wal-Mart a little grocery store not Wal-Mart but we'll get our trees so little grocery store and you were trying out a down.
You're trying out -- that you were gonna put up in your office in Washington DC.
And you've put it down on the ground there in the grocery store and your daughter said -- don't comparison.
And I thought I like Q.
Because there's nothing better than embarrassing your children from time to time I do it almost every day usually.
Around this time.
Also from South Carolina is senator Jim -- so guys what I wanted to do first of all welcome to welcome to.
-- -- -- -- -- -- what I wanted to do is really talk to you and and Jim I wanna start with you.
I remember saying few years ago.
They don't have any idea what they're creating their lying to their constituents they say they're for small government its -- address.
The Americans are going to catch onto this and you're gonna destroy yourself and you were there from the very beginning.
And you've been there from the very beginning saying send me.
So let's start here what kind of helped do you need what what should we as citizens.
Be looking for in a candidate.
Let's just start there.
But Glenn I think we're gonna get a lot of help this November.
When Nancy Pelosi first took over speaker.
We have a trillion dollars in debt since then we've added five trillion and she said when she was inaugurated as speaker.
That we would have no new deficit spending so that the first thing we need to think about.
Is anyone who is seen what the Democrats really stand for and still go out and vote for Democrats are just not thinking they don't understand what made America great.
And prosperous what we need now in Washington to -- more than anything else is people who keep their oath of office.
The first thing we do is congressman and senators is take an oath to defend and protect the constitution.
Yet most people in congress think it's their job to take home the bacon.
Where -- where we've got a food fight of over 500 congressmen and senators who are competing to take come as much from the federal government is I can.
We gotta stop this parochial self serving spending and the way to do it is to stop this whole culture of earmarks.
So I need people who are gonna vote against any more earmarks anymore bills -- -- send them.
Vote to balance our budget and vote to repeal Obama care so that we won't destroy Madison and bankrupt our country.
If you don't minds.
If iShares that conversation that you and I had.
-- -- when it was 68 months ago I don't remember what city was and I think it was in Saint Louis he were speaking and I was speaking -- you said an agreement with me with your husband.
And you said to me.
You know that you were concerned because you were the number one target on Nancy Pelosi is -- And I said it doesn't matter Michelle if you lose you lose just don't -- earlier don't sell your soul.
Up until that moment because of your response in the look -- your husband's eyes when I mean I could just tell your husband was a guardian behind you of now there's no soul selling here.
I didn't know for sure I I didn't have I hadn't had a personal one on one with you where I could look you in the eye and judge you as.
As a person of character.
So I didn't really know.
That's the problem now we have people.
Who are going out and voting I have to vote in Connecticut.
I don't know how to judge people's characters even hears people say politicians all sound the same no matter what you're saying I mean I don't know.
In a -- for breakfast what would you have what did you like well Alitalia.
I'll tell you had this president doesn't want us to have taken any it is like what do you tell just tell me what you want.
How do people judge.
A candidate and their character do you have any help on that.
Well -- our founders gave us a good clue in the Federalist papers when they told us for the first requirement for anyone for certain public service.
Is their character first and foremost.
That's like George Washington is probably the best president.
We've ever had because of his character he -- our nation literally was built on the foundation.
Of this great man's character.
You know it's interesting recently president former President Bill Clinton was here in Minnesota campaigning for my opponent -- -- a mall.
-- that the current president and it states the current vice president United States the speaker of the house the former president -- states twice came and the head of the DD triple C of the congressional organization the head of the DNC the former head of the DNC they've all been here -- To come for one reason to defeat me.
Because President Clinton sad that the Tea Party movement is the most dangerous movement in America today.
And he's self identified me he said Michelle Bachmann.
I see is the epicenter.
Of the Tea Party movement and that's why you need to defeat Michelle Bachmann.
My opinion is -- All we're seeing from the American people and what you been able to rally the country to do is to recapture that spirit -- 1776.
That's what we need.
To have people take that spirit to the polls.
-- in it will mean people need to go to the FaceBook page I invite your -- go to my FaceBook page Michelle Bachmann.
You will learn about my character and that page GM immense character Jason's show it's character.
And I I will -- show -- with all due respect.
I mean you know what the political machinery is like you know me you go to do you look you go to Twitter and read about me.
In the things that are said about me and and are out there.
Are absolutely untrue absolutely untrue.
But you don't know -- -- so many people without any character whatsoever they'll say anything to get elected let me go to Jason -- -- Jason how do you judge a man of character how do we know the person that we are sending.
Is not more.
Well -- regardless of party here a few things I think you should look for first of all do they do it they say they're going to do I mean that's ultimately where world who are all looking for a right.
Are they put that they put principle above party.
And if they say they deal then show me an example where you've actually done that Chile's southern -- actually stood up to your party and said no party your wrong.
This is what we should be doing.
And another little thing that you can look for is who actually speaks for themselves you know all the people of Utah didn't elect meet to go hire a spokesperson to do this -- for -- And oftentimes you'll see a candidate hide.
Behind a spokesperson because they think well the -- right then I'll take credit for it if they don't get her right well -- I guess elevated they misspoke.
So see if they actually do the speaking themselves not give you good clue whether or not they're stand up personally really -- their heart what they're actually say it all right.
When we come back I wanna come back I guess -- start where we did at the beginning.
It's senator dement.
What is the tool that you need the most what if you had one thing that we should find in a candidate.
What is the tool and this is Trent Lott on what he said about.
These Tea Party candidates we don't need a lot of Jim -- disciples as soon as they get here we need to coop them.
That is one of the most incredible statements I've ever seen and that shows you.
The Democrats have already been gobbled by this progressive machine and I warned of the Democrats is that you look my family they were all Democrats grown up.
And it did what we'll do what you're in bed with now the Michael Moore is the extreme left of the world.
That's not Democrat that is socialist.
Communist that's what that is.
And you think the Democrats thought that they were using those people is fuel and I sit and here.
You're gonna beast sadly mistaken when you're eaten by them.
And that's exactly what's happened so the Democratic Party is lost as we know it.
Now the challenge is to make sure that there is a party that isn't eaten by the progressives.
And that's the real battle and so will talk about what kind of people to send there and what kind of armor they need according to the people.
Who were inside Washington now back in a second.
