Most Americans were unaware of the scandals surrounding Vice President Joe Biden's family. The first presidential debate gave President Trump an opportunity.

If you are reading this you probably listen to talk radio. Talk radio is America's town meeting. I grew up in a town meeting form of government. Some of you grew up in a city that elected others to speak for you and so you don't feel comfortable with a town meeting style of discussion.

Town meetings aren't easy. The citizens who show up are expected to know the issues and they are judged immediately by the body politic. The voters at town meeting are on their own to do research, have a knowledge of history, and make an educated decision.

Joe Biden and his son Hunter wouldn't make it at a town meeting.

The activities of the Bidens that have been documented by the smart media over the years and in the recent report of the U.S. Senate would end the credibility of the Bidens at a town meeting. The citizens in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and in the other states that still use town meetings would quickly dispatch the Bidens.

Why did the son of Vice President Biden receive millions of dollars from the wife of a Russian politician? Why did Joe Biden's brother, sister-in-law, and his son Hunter go on a shopping spree with credit cards linked to a Communist Chinese businessman? Why did Hunter Biden get millions of dollars from other foreign business interests while his father was President Obama's right-hand man?

The folks at a New England-style town meeting wouldn't be fooled by the slick media presentations attempting to explain away the Biden's foreign business deals. The folks at town meeting wouldn't ignore the facts. Town meeting members would ask what did it cost their community for the Bidens to make so much money while they were in government.

The listeners of talk radio, America's modern town meeting – regardless of being Democrats or Republicans – know that President Trump was right when he questioned all the foreign cash that has been funneled into the pockets of the Bidens.
