The Republican running for Congress in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District
It was the Fall of 1984, Neil’s first year in high school, and he started studying government and politics. In that class, his teacher helped make politics come alive for him. Mrs. Calvin was an African American who loved our country. She was a member of her church choir and even sang in class. She never told him any of her political views.
VCRs had just become popular and his parents had just bought one…..just in time to record the debates between Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale. Those debates were awesome and helped solidify a common-sense conservative world view for Neil. In fact, Neil can remember discussing policy on the football field where he helped persuade a classmate of the need to get Ronald Reagan elected.
Now, our country is at a pivotal time once again. Will we move toward socialism or will we vote to keep our freedoms? Will we follow the US Constitution or try to invent a new government that the founders wouldn’t recognize?
