I interviewed Producer Gerald R. Molen after a screening of the movie 'America - Imagine A World Without Her' by Dinesh D'Souza where they challenge and debunk many myths pushed by the progressive left. I cannot recommend enough that you take your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to see this film.
I recently attended the announcement of a major media buy in Florida by Americans For Prosperity at their local office in Kissimmee, FL. Tim Phillips (@TimPhillipsAFP), President of Americans For Prosperity, and Slade O'Brien (@SladeOBrien), State Director for Americans For Prosperity - Florida spent time with me afterward discussing Obamacare, real solutions to our healthcare problems as well as the new set of ads that will be playing throughout Florida.

I want to talk, today, about a problem that’s occurring across the country. I hear it in academia, in the media, pop culture, and especially in politics – and we find it at the local, state and especially the federal level. At times you could attribute it to being accidental, maybe they don’t really understand – but more times than not, its purposeful.
Ronald Reagan said "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are I'm from the government and I'm here to help". Unfortunately, that couldn't be more true today than ever before. Its a proven fact that without the power of the free market system, government has no incentive to produce a good or service with efficiency let alone at or below budget.
Fortunately, though, I can proudly proclaim, "I'm from the Private Sector and I'm here to help!"
On Saturday, November 2, 2013, I will participating in what will be THE most difficult physical challenge of my life. From ToughMudder.com: "Tough Mudder events are hardcore obstacle courses designed to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, over one million inspiring participants worldwide to date, and more than $5 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world."
Robert Levy, Chairman of the Cato Institute, penned an oped in the NY Times titled, The Limits of Nullification where he argues against the states using Nullification to push back against the Federal government. KrisAnne Hall, however, in agreement with the founders of our Republic, strongly disagrees.
I spent time with Bill Whittle at the Americans For Prosperity Defending The Dream Summit in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios where we discussed several areas where the tea party and grassroots groups are making a mistake.
From Breitbart.com, "Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) will honor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with this year’s Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center. The award will be presented to Clinton on September 10th, the eve of the first anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans."
I had the honor and privilege of interviewing author Trevor Loudon at Americans For Prosperity's Defending the American Dream Summit where he made the claim, "I would estimate that there are at least 100 members of the US Congress and probably 30 members of the US Senate who would not pass a basic security test and FBI security clearance…because they are connect to radical Marxist groups".
After he spoke at Americans For Prosperity's Defending the American Dream Summit in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios on Saturday, August 31, 2013, Senator Ted Cruz rushed to Radio Row and joined me on American Patriots Radio for a brief interview. I was certainly honored to spend a couple minutes with him where we talked about the IRS, ObamaCare, squishy Republicans and the Restoration Tax Plan.
I attended Americans For Prosperity's ObamaCare protest today in front of Senator Bill Nelson's office in Orlando, FL. Patriots from several counties gathered from 12Noon to 1pm to ask Senator Nelson for an ObamaCare Exemption, similar to the one recently granted to he and his staff.
Do you have those days where your frustration builds and you find it hard to continue in our struggle to save our Republic? In today's show, for such a time as this, I share a story about an old man and a rock and I ask you to recommit yourself -- right here, right now -- to the mission.
I was recently honored with an invitation and opportunity to speak at the Republican Men's Club of Brevard (RMCB). I had visited their group a couple years ago and was invited back this summer for another presentation. This time, I didn't want to just talk about the "issues of the day" and provide fodder for the political theater most talking heads provide on the nightly news shows. Instead, I wanted to pause a moment and talk about something important. Instead of just reacting to the man-made corporate news cycle, I believe we need to be proactive and prepare the next generation of Americans with a national conversation about Liberty, the Constitution and the Proper Role of Government.
The Space Coast Tusk, a monthly newsletter written by Stuart Gorin, covered my visit with the RMCB:
"Orlando-based Tea Party and Social media activist Jason Hoyt told the Republican Men’s Club of Brevard on July 18 that there needs to be a conversation in America on what is liberty. He is on a journey throughout the country to work with patriots to bring back our founding principles.
Hoyt said he believes it is imperative that we learn, teach and appreciate what our founders intended, what makes our country exceptional and what roles our Creator played in the founding.
Every generation, he said, makes a choice as to what type of country we will be, adding that only an informed and courageous electorate will choose liberty and self- government. “We must make the right choices today, and work tirelessly to prepare the next generation,” Hoyt said.
As a result of the IRS profiling and targeting scandal, he said, it is time to take a serious look at how we fund the federal government. He noted that for 100 years – since the implementation of the income tax through the 16th Amendment – the size, scope and power of the federal government has grown out of control.
Therefore, it is time for the Restoration Tax Plan, Hoyt said. He proposed these four steps: 1) repeal the 16th Amendment, 2) close the IRS, 3) eliminate all federal taxes, and 4) have each state collect taxes in their own unique way and fund the federal government based on each state’s percentage of population.
Hoyt also hosts American Patriots Radio, a show dedicated to the political, fiscal, cultural, educational and spiritual awakening that is on the rise in America. It can be heard on iTunes and Stitcher by downloading a free app."
