    The "Campaign Process", during elections, can really turn people off! It can be a real PAIN! But instead of hiding from it, if citizens would use the "Campaign Process" as a tool, it could really make "our job" as voters easier... which, in turn, can make our lives better!

    Join Host, Kristopher H. Bilbrey, as he explores what we, as voters, should be looking at during the campaign process.

    Host, Kristopher H. Bilbrey, welcomes Brittany (Bridges) Kloer to the show for this "special BONUS EPISODE!" Brittany is a Republican Candidate running for State Representative in Indiana's 33rd House District (and for those that live in the District she is asking for your support & vote in the May 3rd, 2022, Primary Election). Brittany is running as a TRUE "Constitutional Conservative" and she has the full support & endorsement of the 'Perception IS Reality' crew!

    Brittany is a teacher in the Indiana Public School System, and has been for 12 years... she has also been an educational legislative advocate, as well. Brittany, along with her husband, Brandon, live in Portland, Jay County, Indiana. She first ran for the District 33 seat back in 2020. Even though she came up short in that race, she still put up decent numbers for a first time Candidate, considering she was also dealing, as was everyone, with the first few months of the Worldwide "Covid 19" Pandemic!

    Her first, failed, attempt and the fact that the incumbent has become increasingly less reliable, is more concerned with trying to keep his power and secure his future positions, all while, he appears to be working less & less for the citizens of his District... has fired Brittany up and she is ready to WIN the 2022 Primary Election on May 3rd!

    If a candidate running for public office (or an elected official) shuts down communication during a meeting or some other form of "public business" and walks out of the room or walks away from citizens and/or other candidates/officials... there are 3 simple words they need to remember: "DON'T STOP WALKING!" It's that simple! Don't pass GO! Don't collect another tax dollar! Just keep walking!

    Join Kris as he continues to examine the difference between Republicans (or those that claim to be "Conservatives") and TRUE CONSTITUTIONAL, COMMON SENSE, CONSERVATIVES!

  • Episode 182: Out Jesus...

    america, bilbrey podcast, common sense, democrat party, election 2022, indiana, jesus, out jesus, perception is reality w/kristopher h. bilbrey, primary election, republican party, stay safe stay tuned stay true

    The disillusionment with the Republican Party continues as Host Kristopher H. Bilbrey discusses a weird republican event he attended recently. The fakery was on full display as everyone was trying to "one up" each other with how over the top nice they were "trying to be!" Or the attempts to "outdo" each other with the "charity work" they do (which really calls into question the motives for doing the work.) And the really strange act of trying to "Out Jesus" each other... along with many other really odd behaviors. Bottom line, IT'S ALL FOR SHOW! But the Democrats do the same things, just with their causes. Like trying to see who's “more woke”, or “more anti-police &/or anti-constitution”, all while attempting to drive politics so far left it's not even recognizable anymore. Meanwhile, citizens like Kris, are just so tired of it and want COMMON SENSE to return... they are left dumbstruck and screwed over! BUT... they are starting to fight back against the nonsense. Can the crazy be defeated? Time will tell… but YOU are needed! Are you ready to join the fight!?

    Join Kris as he welcomes Justin Oakley to the program. Justin has been in and around State & Local Politics for 20 plus years & is known as the "Education Guy" throughout Indiana, where he has taught and been an advocate for teachers, students & education, as a whole. He has attempted to "lay low" in the last few years but current events just keep pulling him back in! Getting educated & active in politics matters now more than ever... but those in power know that too, and they are trying to stop citizen involvement! In Politics, as well as everywhere else, "Education Matters!" This episode should make for an interesting conversation, with Kris feeling fed up with his "Republican Party" and Justin being of the more Liberal persuasion... will Kris & Justin get along and/or agree on anything? Listen to find out!

    Justin Oakley was a candidate for State Superintendent of Education in 2012 against the Incumbent, Tony Bennett and he is the former host of his own podcast called: "Just Let Me Teach!" He is a great conversationalist, using intelligence & humor to drive home his talking points in all things Education & Politics.

    (Also, make sure to listen up for the "BREAKING NEWS"... while the news is VERY REAL there is a pat on the back & an 'attaboy/girl for those listeners that get the parody!)

    BONUS EPISODE: Complete, Start to Finish, Recording of the Town Hall Meeting Held by Indiana's District 33 State Representative J.D. Prescott on Saturday, February 19th, 2022.

    Host Kristopher H. Bilbrey spliced together 2 separate recordings of the meeting that took place at the Randolph County (Indiana) 4-H Fairgrounds. The audio IS NOT THE BEST... because it wasn't recorded with studio equipment. There are places where the audio gets quiet, loud or cuts out briefly. Please understand this was the best recording that could be made, based off of the original 2 recordings! This was the meeting in which Representative Prescott stormed out, for a short time, after the first comment. He then went back in and a short time later said, "LGBTQ Behavior is not normal behavior and should not be normalized!" There are then many other crazy things he said during the meeting. Give it a listen and then share the show with everyone you know.

    Host Kristopher H. Bilbrey has watched Democracy work & fail over the course of the last 20 plus years! However, he's been watching it fail more and more as of late; which has led him to look inward, rather than outward, for ways to fix this issue. Realizing the government is the problem is a big first step. Understanding that Republicans & Democrats are 2 sides of the same bad coin is also very important. But there is still more work to be done... join Kris, on this journey to help Democracy triumph! [Perception Principle #1: Learn to Disagree].

In this episode Kris discusses the importance of standing up for what you believe in and coming together to give support to each other. It's through these actions that the spark can ignite and true change can take place! But it's going to take everyone, are YOU in?

    Is decency dead? Join Kris as he contemplates that very thought. Even though it's the "Holiday Season" (at the time of this recording) it seems like the concepts of "intelligence", "common sense" & "peace on earth, good will to all" are fading away. For example, the father that called to let his children talk to the President on Christmas Eve... everything was going well, until it derailed - why? What was accomplished by what happened? There is a time and a place for everything... but it feels like people are losing that understanding. Is it too late, or do we still have time to fix this?
