America needs a new political force, I argue in my newest Denver Post column. Not another political party, but a responsibility movement to challenge both parties. Absent responsibility, neither the liberal concern with equality nor the conservative devotion to freedom can arrive at a good society. Watch how this insight illumines every topic on our show this Sunday.

** Michael Harvey, US AID Deputy Director in Baghdad and a Coloradan, reports on the battle against global jihad.

** Congressman John Culberson (R-Texas) joins me to talk about what's next in the battle for secure borders.

** Ward Connerly of the American Civil Rights Institute and author-columnist Joseph C. Phillips discuss the momentous turn toward color-blind education in last month's Supreme Court cases.

** And Speaker Andrew Romanoff faces my skepticism about his plan for a Democrat-led cleanup (read: demolition) of the taxpayer protections and fiscal guardrails in Colorado's constitution.

What a compliment to conservative talk radio that the left is begging for on-air quotas to push its less persuasive views. Element R says baloney to that. And what a privilege for us at Backbone Radio to provide your weekend conservative update every Sunday. Tune in, please!

Yours for self-government, JOHN ANDREWS
