Independence Day 2023

247 years ago today, the Continental Congress (56 men) met and wrote out their grievances to the King of Great Britain and Declared their Independence. The Revolutionary war had started the previous year. We celebrate today to honor when we officially declared we wanted our freedom from a tyrannical King. We wouldn’t get that until 1783.

Sadly, we are living in a time where many Americans don’t even know why we celebrate the 4th of July. I’m fortunate to live in a community that understands the significance of today. I went with my son’s family to the parade in Parowan today. It was a fun time to be with family and see the floats and people dressed to celebrate. My 5 year old granddaughter asked her dad (my son) what Independence Day was. His response made me so proud. “It is the day we celebrate when the rebels and treasoners told a tyrant we are free people and if anyone says you’re a rebel or treasoner, they are a tyrant.” We are responsible for raising the next generation of Patriots. Let’s “Keep the Republic” so they will know what freedom is.

Happy Independence Day! Let Freedom Reign!

Apparently my website is on the wrong time zone. I’ll have that fixed. It was posted on the 4th of July.


    1. Thank you for reaching out.
      You asked about what background I have that prepares me for office.
      I am a Constitutionalist and have studied the Constitution in depth for the last 20 years. I know that in Article 1, Sec 8 the delegated powers of congress are spelled out and they are few and specific. I’ve been invited to events to speak on the Constitution and the Rule of Law. I am currently enrolled at SUU to expand my education in Political Science and Pre-Law classes. I have worked as a manager in the food industry and stayed on budget. I’m taking a Macroeconomics class this semester to increase my economic knowledge on a larger scale.

      I’m not sure if that answers your question about what in my background I’ve done to prepare for this office, but if you have something specific you would like to know, please ask.
