Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small "L" libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us.

Kristi Noem

NH GOP Amos Tuck Reception – South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem

Gov. Noem used to be US Representative Kristi Noem but returned home and won election as Governor. She became famous in Conservative Republican circles for her handling of this COVID-19 pandemic for doing EXACTLY opposite what most other Governors were doing – basing her governance on Constitutional values:
