About Howard

Lived a lot, learned a lot, and continue to learn. Most important lessons learned: The Founding Fathers were right, are right, and will always be right. The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, The Federalist Papers, and Wealth of Nations are the cornerstones of what made the United States of America the greatest country the world has ever known. The farther we stray from those truths, the less free and happy we are.
