From Heather Cox Richardson

Hi, let me preface this post that I’m sharing by telling you that I am a Republican and have voted Republican for a very long time. I was a fan of Trump’s but I did not vote for him for president because during his election I got an insight to what his true character isContinue reading “From Heather Cox Richardson”
