What is the “American Way of Life” to you? | Letter

Comfy home, good health care, freedom to worship as you please, good schools and a safe community? Is there a feeling of pride when we declare we are American? Do we appreciate the liberties we have as Americans? There is an American Spirit, a way of honor in our DNA. We are driven to hard work, pride and compassion.

San Juan County Republicans will spend 2014 concentrating on elections and ballot issues protecting our American Way of Life.
