Anytime you mention the word, “politics,” you know you’re in for a charged and polarizing conversation but it’s crucial we talk more about politics and the policy that comes with it because it impacts every facet of our lives.
My guest today, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, joins me to talk about the key issues impacting culture and society today including a healthy approach to reaching across the aisle, why it’s important for conservatives to have a voice in what we typically view as liberal issues, not only the far left but the far right – something he calls, “woke conservatism,” the importance of humility and open-mindedness, and distinguishing between politics and policy.
“Conservatism isn’t necessarily about the outcomes…conservatism is about the process by which we got there.” Tweet That— Dan Crenshaw
Congressman Crenshaw is a Representative serving in the 2nd Congressional District in Texas and is a former Navy SEAL with over 10 years of service and over 5 deployments in some of the most hostile territory in the world.
He was awarded two Bronze Starts, the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal (with Valor) among others. Since leaving the service, he has been working and serving Texans and Americans and currently sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Health Subcommittee, and the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee. He believes there is no higher calling than service to the American people.
“People have very strong opinions over subject matter of which they know very little.” Tweet That— Dan Crenshaw

Do you have a band of brothers? Most men don’t. Most men are doing life alone. But you don’t have to. And, you shouldn’t.
Men need to surround themselves with other high-caliber men all working together to improve themselves, hold each other accountable, and do the work necessary to achieve at the highest levels in every facet of life.
That’s where our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, comes into play and the good news is that we’re open for enrollment right now for a very short period of time. So, if you’ve been on the fence or know that you need to band with other men to make the most of life, join us before we shut down registration at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.
