We’ve written a lot this year and shared our viewpoints with thousands of people. As the year closes out, let’s take a look at some of our top articles.

Why We Should Hold the Media Accountable

In Defense of Austin Petersen, He’s The Real Deal

Views on this article skyrocketed as we broke down Missouri Senate Candidate Austin Peterson. Our support of Peterson stems from his criticism of government officials regardless of party, his ability to win the primary, and many other things listed in this well-written piece.
