National Borders and the Value of America as a City On a Hill

I start with a question–a dilemma that does indeed have an answer. How can good-hearted, ethical, moral people make the suggestion to “stop open borders”? The first few words of John 3:16 are: “For God so loved the world.” With imagination, one can sense that God looks down at the world and sees all human beings, of every color, race, creed, and nationality, as sacred individuals born with the light of God dwelling in their hearts. more
Nancy Pelosi and the Hard-Left Should All Resign

Essay: Why Socialism Would Destroy America's Economy and Freedoms
This essay was the basis for the first speech at the event of the same name, on November 20, 2019, co-hosted by the Gray and Windham Republican Committees with the co-sponsorship and support of 50 additional organizations and leaders. Around 100 people attended.
Socialism would destroy America’s economy and freedoms because it’s a totalitarian system rooted in hatred, envy, and revenge that gives political and economic power to a bureaucratic élite who inevitably become corrupt as they steal from the masses whom they set out to liberate. As socialism removes economic and political freedoms, it crushes the human soul and turns its citizens into jailers and slaves. Personal dreams and ambitions fade away, and society descends into bored mediocrity, corruption, poverty, fear, and death. more

~ This essay was the basis of a public speech given on August 15, 2019 in Cumberland, Maine, co-hosted by the Gray and Cumberland Republican Town Committees. Brown is the Chairman of the Gray Republican Committee. You can view that speech here.
First, liberals and conservatives need to join together and affirm that we want to be free and that living a life of freedom requires thought and free-flowing dialogue. Totalitarians don’t like freedom of thought at all. more
