❖ Steve Moore – Topic: Health Care, the Economy

What if America chose to have virtually all of its health care insurance system run by the government? Former Wall Street Journal economist Steve Moore answers that all of our health care could be like what we see in the Veterans Administration. Moore, senior economics contributor for FreedomWorks and an economist for the Heritage Foundation, wrote a piece about the idea of “Medicare for All” in the Washington Times. He states, “When Bernie Sanders and seemingly half the Democrats running for re-election promise ‘Medicare for all,’ they mean exactly what they say. This is a health plan for all — everybody is tossed in the swimming pool.” Health care is a big issue in the midterm elections. Steve Moore, coauthor of the new book, Trumponomics, joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the promise versus reality of “Medicare for all.”

❖ Bill Federer – Topic: Socialism and the Midterms

Trending: The Really Dumb, Stupid, Totally Clueless, Idiot’s Guide to Socialism

Socialism has been a failure everywhere it’s been tried. Yet socialism is quite popular with a lot of young people today—even many professing Christians. In some ways, the mid-term elections will be a referendum on socialism. A rising star of the left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is the poster child for the “free stuff” (versus freedom) agenda. She surprisingly won the primary against a ten-term U.S. Congressman in New York City. Her platform calls for Medicare for All and tuition-free college and trade schools. Such political promises sound good. But what are the realities? Modern America, postulates Bill Federer, can learn from the ancient pre-BC Greek writer and philosopher, Plato. Best-selling author and speaker Bill Federer joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the midterms and socialism.

❖ Steve Cortes – Topic: the Caravan, Open Borders, the Mid-terms

There are thousands of people from south of the border marching through Mexico right now to try and come into the United States. Different politicians hold to different ways to deal with this. Steve Cortes, a CNN political commentator and the President of the Trump Hispanic Advisory Council, and a Trump 2020 Re-Elect Campaign Advisor, is grateful that his father from Latin America was able to migrate to this country legally. Meanwhile, he wrote a piece in RealClearPolitics to the effect that a vote for the conservatives is a vote for the wall, while a vote for the liberals is a vote for open borders. He pens, “I totally understand and respect the desire to be part of the American miracle….But….tolerating lawless entry and porous borders represents an affront to the millions of legal immigrants who endure a lengthy and difficult process to naturalize here…we must secure our borders.” Steve Cortes joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the caravan, open borders, and the mid-terms. @cortessteve.

❖ Virginia Prodan – Topic: Warnings from a Survivor of Communism

America is considering various candidates who advocate more government control of more of our lives. This is moving us more toward socialism and away from free enterprise. There are grave consequences, warns Virginia Prodan, a survivor of Communist Romania and the author of the Tyndale book, Saving My Assassin. She has an important message for our time, when religious freedom is at risk. She described the Communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu thus: “I called that land a land of lies and a ‘Prisonland’ because we were not allowed to criticize or even to ask questions about the government or his regime….I remember my parents being very, very submissive. They were ‘politically correct’ outside of home, but whispering their feelings inside of home.” Today in America, she is an attorney for God (affiliated with the Alliance Defending Freedom), fighting for Christian liberties in the courts of America and in the courts of public opinion. Virginia Prodan joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the importance of the mid-terms and of protecting our religious liberty by not voting for socialism.
