Public Access TV and Our Founding Fathers

After American history week on MyRye.com, it is only appropriate that former Rye Mayor and election analysis emcee John Carey is back tomorrow with his Rye TV show, “Rye Pundits View the [Presidential] Candidates”.

Perhaps Caey will discuss what Rye’s John Jay and some of the other Founding Fathers would think of our current state of politics. Carey guest George Bulow, scheduled for the March 1st show, told MyRye.com:

"The Founding Fathers were profoundly concerned about allowing any leader too much power, so they divided it in multiple ways as a means of preventing anyone from becoming a tyrant.  The slowness and difficulty of taking seeming public “wants” or “needs” and translating them into law, is arduous for a very good reason: the process allows all parties to have some say in its ultimate resolutions and funding."

We feel like we are back in political science class. A new episode of “Rye Pundits View the Candidates” airs each and every Saturday this February and into March on Rye TV Channel 76 at ten minutes after 9 am, noon, 3 pm, 6 pm and 9 pm.
