Doom and Gloom Stalk The Land

If you take the “typical” American of statistical probability, you have someone who identifies themselves as Christian by religion, you have someone who believes in marriage between a man and a woman, you have someone who wants limited government and respect for ALL of the Bill of Rights. For this average American, the news on every front is alarming.
