Summary: If you watch the news or listen to the pundits, you'd think there were only two kinds of Americans: wacko fundamentalist conservatives and whiny bleeding-heart liberals. But, in fact, the vast majority of Americans fall somewhere between these polar opposites. In Ronn Owens, this neglected majority has finally found its champion.

Owens is one of the top-rated radio personalities in the country because he offers moderation, rather than indignation. Always open-
minded and never dull, Owens is controversial precisely because his is a rare political voice--a voice from the center. He has no hidden agenda. He spouts no facile moral platitudes. He understands that morality and politics aren't black and white, and that anyone who says otherwise is probably naive. He doesn't pander to audiences or call those who disagree with him traitors. He avoids ideology and opts for good, old-fashioned American common sense. Eschewing both the bogus moral outrage of the Right and the starry-eyed idealism of the Left, Owens simply tells it like it is.

Generally liberal on social issues and conservative on fiscal matters, Owens is more popular than ever because he offers people the kind of honest take on politics they can't get anywhere else. He pulls no punches and holds both the Left and the Right accountable for America's many problems. Preoccupied with hating each other, liberals and conservatives are polarized by issues, suspicious of each other, and inflexible in their attitudes. And as long as the political discussion in America remains mired in ideological trench warfare, we can't come together to solve our problems.

Voice of Reason is a breath of fresh air in today's toxic political climate, offering a positive message in dark times: that with reason, common sense, and pragmatism, we can find common ground between all Americans--left, right, and center. If you're sick of the hyperactive bleating of the Ann Coulters and Michael Moores, and you're ready for a straightforward and fair discussion of today's biggest issues, there's only one Voice of Reason out there.
