All You Never Really Knew About Christmas But Were Probably Too Brainwashed To Ask

For the last few years, we’ve all heard the clammoring from those who have endeavored to create a national crisis in their faux War on Christmas.

Vote For Freedom

233 years ago, our predecessors through off the chains of an oppressive, authoritarian, anti-freedom government. Their success was the first step towards our free and democratic way of life. 233 years later, another George is trying to shackle the freedom and democracy of this great country through an authoritarian and oppressive force of will.

A Message To Democratic Candidates
