Interview with John Andrews, former Nixon speechwriter and President of the Colorado Senate. We discuss Andrews' new book: "Backbone Colorado USA: Dispatches From the Divide." What does it mean to be a conservative today? How concerning are present-day divides within the Republican Party? Will the GOP manage to hold together through a time of strife? Is Ted Cruz truly the "thoroughbred conservative" in the GOP field? Is Donald Trump worthy of the "strange new respect" he seems to be earning? Regarding Trump's proposal to temporarily limit Muslim immigration into America, we review issues of compatibility between Islam and Western Civilization. Forebodings for the future? With music and listener calls.
