In a spectacular victory, Stephanie Briggs retained the governorship of her own life. Running on the platform of personal responsibility, she took control of her thoughts and actions to become one of millions of people to assert their right to do so.

Listen to pundits, sitting on the sidelines, collecting their pay for distracting us from the business at hand?

“We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
