Draining the Swamp – an Interview with Representative Zach Wamp – Episode 277

Zach Wamp spent 16 years in Congress, and he comes to Blunt Force Truth to discuss the corruption that runs Washington. He brings some shocking details about the power of money that guides government.

Wamp believes that Baby Boomers are the first generation to leave the nation worse than they found it, but he outlines some ways this can be turned around. He talks about the historical pattern of idealistic, selfish generations and patriotic, sacrificial generations – and where he believes we are headed. They consider the politics that are shaping the minds of the American youth and how conservatives can take the lead.

The former Congressman also offers some tips about the most effective ways to reach your Congressional representatives, from an insider perspective.

Chuck and Mark also consider how the Left politicizes tragedy for the own agenda, this time about the recent shooting of concert-goers in Las Vegas.
