Let Freedom Ring

Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country ~ Calvin Coolidge

I am an American. I am the daughter of an immigrant. I am a conservative. I am a Christian. I am an educated woman. I own a gun. I know how to use it. I am opinionated and more than likely you’ll know exactly where I stand.

I believe you have the right to be a liberal. I believe you have the right to worship whichever god you wish. I believe you have the right, regardless of color, creed, or religion, to an education. I believe you have the right to own or not own a firearm. You have the right to your opinion and to share it.

And I have the right to disagree with you. That's the beauty of the freedom.

I love this country and what she stands for. If you disagree, you’re free to leave it or you're free to stay and complain. That’s what freedom is all about.

Today, of all days, I thank those who have served and currently serve as a soldier in this country’s service. You are my hero and I am forever in your debit.

Hi Annie -

Happy 4th of July!

I pray my fellow citizens will take the time and make the effort to examine the positions of each candidate.

I pray my fellow citizens will look beyond party affiliation and remember the foundational truths upon which our nation was built.

I pray my fellow citizens will once again remember that true freedom has its origins not in man but in the Lord.
