“Liberty is the essence of the American ideal and this philosophy can only be advanced by the individual. At the core our founding philosophy lies one fundamental requirement – critical thought. Without critical thought, Liberty is in free fall, and subject to opinion, innuendo and ridicule. Worse yet, where critical thinking is absent, we too often see egoism, greed and unprincipled aggression against the helpless.
- Mayor Mike Dunafon, Nov 2014
The antithesis of a professional politician, Mayor Mike Dunafon is fiercely independent and refuses to accept any money from anyone. Mike believes that both the Democrats on the left and the Republicans on the right have sold out America pandering for their share of corporate and PAC money. He understands that the intellectual elites running the Democrats want to control your decisions because they know better than you, what is best for you and your family. Mike fundamentally rejects this idea and big government categorically, and believes that we need to reverse our current path toward socialism, by creating more liberty and less government. On the other side of the spectrum, Mike also rejects the imposition of religious intolerance by segments within the Republican Party, specifically on the social issues of reproductive liberty and marital equality. These social matters are best resolved by adopting public policy choices that promote liberty for women (over their bodies) and marriage equality for all couples, irrespective of sexual expression or orientation.
His track record in Glendale over the past 18 years includes reducing the size of the city staff by 40%, improving the City’s bond rating from BB to AA-, redeveloping the City’s municipal center to add world-class amenities, including the Infinity Park Stadium & Events Center, plus a new recreation center for local residents, and Glendale’s High Altitude Training Center. But most of all, Mike’s leadership in Glendale has led to the City becoming re-branded as “RugbyTown, USA” and being known as an oasis for liberty in the middle of Denver.
But the real measure of the man is not his list of accomplishments, but rather, it is his deep commitment to learning and critical thinking. He takes positions that are consistent with his philosophy of life that the best way to foster innovation, competition and increased productivity is for government to get out of the way of business and let self-interested individuals and corporations drive the economy.
The Mike Dunafon Show
Distributed by MileHiRadio.com, Cannetradio.com, and others, the Mike Dunafon show is committed to education in the hopes of catalyzing a political revolution in America, or as Mayor Mike puts it an “American Spring.”
From the starting point of acknowledging that the major political parties are really the same thing, as opposed to offering any real choice or options, Mayor Mike urges us to honestly examine our own basic underlying operating systems, for the purpose of discovering whether our actions are actually advancing our underlying goals and beliefs.
We must break the stranglehold the political parties and big money have over our culture, information and governance by supporting independent candidates, who refuse to be controlled by corporate money and have the skills and experience required to lead in the interests of real people.
So if you agree that we need to get the money out of politics, and that we need more liberty and less government surveillance and control, and that politicians should only be beholden to voters rather than corporate sponsors, then be sure to tune-in to the Mike Dunafon Show, ‘LIKE’ his Facebook page, follow Mike on Twitter, and volunteer to spread the word to folks in your area, as we change the face of American politics.
