English Madness and America


I’ve long admired Winston Churchill and revere him as freedom’s greatest champion.

An intellectual master and political giant, Winston Churchill saved Great Britain from the Nazi juggernaut with superior oratory, pure leadership, undaunted patriotism and a granite-firm strength of the principles of liberty. Continue reading
