Winston Churchill's Fight for Democracy (2 segments)
Description: In June 1945, just weeks after the Nazis' surrender, Prime Minister Winston Churchill boldly railed against the socialist system of government. His speech was met with heavy criticism and was eventually dubbed his "crazy broadcast," and it cost his Conservative party dearly in the election a few weeks later. But it provides a snapshot of his lifelong fight to promote democracy and free government. Today is the anniversary of his 1965 death, and we'll take the opportunity to look back at his life with Larry Arnn.
