Welcome to this community of people that love this country, celebrates its uniqueness, and stands unapologetic in our patriotism and what it means to be an American. We realize that freedom is not free but with it comes the mantle of responsibility to be a voice in our democracy. Not only are we “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights,” but we also have the weight of the responsibility to continue to fight for the freedoms that our forefathers gave us as an inheritance.

Born and raised in the Midwest in a politically active Republican family, I entered the political process in the third grade when I campaigned for Ronald Reagan in my elementary school’s mock election. I campaigned hard. We won! His leadership stimulated my interest in U.S. history, particularly the study of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars and U.S. 20th Century foreign policy.
After graduating from college where I studied communications and music, I started my own production company: I am a firm proponent of the system of free enterprise. The natural outflow of years of research, reading, writing and observation is to engage others in the dissemination of knowledge for education and discussion. That is what this is about.
I have lived on both coasts of this great country and have observed that many people are talking loudly, but too few people are listening and reasoning.
It is my desire to be a patriotic voice of common sense and civility in a political culture severely lacking in them both.
