Skip Murphy – 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. As an activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.

Please Note: My opinions are my own and not those of my Family, employers, politicians, campaigns, or other contributors at GraniteGrok.
Mike Rogers – Mike is a British import of more than 30 years; a conservative in the days of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.

Stephen is a long-time resident of New Hampshire…
In 2016 I escaped from the People’s Republik of Massachusetts because they forgot that the colony was the Cradle of Liberty. I am a big fan of the Right of armed self-defense. I’m not such a fan of the State getting control of whatever they can get their grubby hands on.
I was a Lying Dog Faced Pony Soldier. Now I’m a Browncoat fighting the tyranny of the Covidists and their Public Health Tyranny Alliance (Among other things).
