Uniting for America
First and foremost, I am a mother of four children and grandmother of one. I moved around when I was young until my family settled in Pocatello, Idaho where I graduated from high school at Highland High in 1980.
I married my high school sweetheart but divorced nineteen years later. While pregnant with my second child, I started my first home business so I could work and bring in an income but still be there for my children. Since then, I’ve had two other home businesses. Then I found my love, publishing. I have been helping authors publish their books and fulfill their dreams for 13 years now.
I am, for obvious reasons, an avid reader and adore history and research. I love gardening and dancing and just about anything to do with music and the arts.
I have always been political but with today’s climate, I feel now is the time to stop talking the talk and begin to walk the walk. We must make our world a better place for the next generations.
I grew up in a conservative home but was encouraged to find my own way. While voting primarily for the GOP candidates, I have also voted for moderate Democrats who were more in line with my thinking.
When the Tea Party came to prominence, I left the GOP and became a full-fledged Independent.
Our politics have become so polarized, and the far-left and far-right voices are drowning out the moderates. When the country voted for Trump as president, and conservative representatives supported and didn’t denounce his hateful rhetoric, lies and harmful policies, I realized the once great party of Lincoln, was dead.
With the decline in both Democratic and Republican voters and the rise of Independents, I realized now is the time for Moderates to take a stand and come to power. No longer should we have to choose between one extreme or the other. There is a party of the majority of Americans, and that party is the American Moderates Party.
I am a fiscal conservative/social moderate-progressive. I believe we can balance the budget and still have compassionate legislation to help those who most need our help. I feel our politicians need to be held accountable in all that they do. No one (including—especially—our president) is above the law.
