Gary Johnson’s the better alternative

September 14, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

A Hillary Clinton presidency would be a continuation of the destructive path trail-blazed by Barack Obama in his quest to seize and destroy liberty and freedom from our great nation. It is clearly apparent that the agenda of Obama, Clinton and their adoring...
