Could this whole election come down to Colorado? As the stakes rise in our evenly-split swing state, we offer an extraordinary "pep talk" in favor of the Trump Campaign. Last chance to save America? Meanwhile, we welcome Ted Cruz onto the Trump Train, and assess recent reports of "dead people voting" in Colorado. Also, the Backbone host offers a patriotic celebration of the 100th Birthday of his Uncle Max, a living American hero who served as Pilot Commander of a B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber in World War II. We add historical perspective to the current NFL controversies over the National Anthem and the American Flag.
