Skip

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us).

Sometimes I deliberately sign up; other times it’s like I’m some Democrat’s mail slave that keeps getting passed around all over the place. A lot of times it is because I was an Independent for so long so I guess they think my eyeballs …

“We Hold These Truths: Our Answer To The Mob”

It is our teachers and public education, writ large, that have failed the country; by not teaching Civics and History correctly or adequately.
