From James:

“Friends, I feel as though my whole life has led me to this moment through an undeniably Divine confluence of service, family, and faith. For our children’s sake, I hope you feel as I do, and as Billy Graham said: “America is too young to die.

Please join me on this journey to rediscover Our Lost Founding, so we can keep America’s true spirit alive for posterity. God bless you, and God bless America.”
