The stakes…

At times like these, it is important to know who we are as a nation, what we believe as a people, and what we are compelled to become.

As we navigate the challenges before us, I believe it is important to call out those ideas which would destroy what we hold dear, the actors who would willingly cast aside our freedoms, and lend clarity to the most pressing questions of our time.

Join me as we explore not just the dust cover of today’s issues, but the meat of what we must wrestle with to preserve our nation and ideals.

There is nothing government can give you that it hasn’t taken from you in the first place.
