2020 Will Get Worse: The Election is a Looming Disaster

If you are thinking that surely we have seen the the worst that 2020 has to offer, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I ardently believe you are wrong.

There is a Reason that Liberty is a Woman

I hate to make this pitch as a man, but if you’re a woman, I really hope you’ll consider joining the liberty movement today. On one side, there’s Trump.
