Mark and Kelly have three children and recently celebrated twenty-one years of marriage.
I remember a time when the entire world could feel the powerful heartbeat of this country. Today, our pulse is fading while the same heartbeat has grown faint. Our nation seems to have forgotten that our freedom isn’t a derivative of the federal government, but rather it comes from our Creator, God Almighty.
Time is running short, and the bell for survival is ringing louder than ever. If we choose to ignore this deafening sound our destiny is already determined. We must begin. We need individuals in the hallowed halls of Congress who will stand on conviction and principle. Why not us? Why can’t a group of North Carolinians begin to rebuild the foundation of this once great Republic?
I am proud to be a conservative Republican and together I believe we can make a difference. Will it cost something? Absolutely! It wasn’t just fifty-six men who agreed to pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor; it was everyday people like you and me.to move with an urgency and precision not seen in several decades. If the wind is to once again unfurl the sails of this great nation, it must be led through our local citizens, our homes, our towns, and our churches and not by the long arm of an overregulating government.
If we can rediscover just a small fraction of that indomitable spirit, our great nation can once again sail majestically. The time is now! May God provide the guidance and may we have the courage to follow.
