Liberty Worth Fighting For

It’s almost the 4th of July and we need to talk about liberty.

A Reminder From Tocqueville: Why We Love America

I’m taking today to remind everyone what it really means to be an American. Sometimes we have to stop and remind ourselves why we love this country so much.

Liberty Means Responsibility

Friends, liberty must first live in the hearts of the people before it can reside in the chambers of government.
