The strength of America comes from the power of the American woman. I have been married for over ten years and my wife Susan and I have four children together ranging in ages from five months to nine years. My wife is the rock of our household who holds everything together. Without her, the family bond that we share would not exist. Susan comes from a long line of conservative American women who not only keep the family unit together but, more importantly, keep our nation together.
Women have long served as the backbone of the conservative movement. From the Founding Mothers of the Republic, to Clare Boothe Luce and Phyllis Schlafly, to today’s “Mama Grizzlies” like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, women have been at the heart of the movement.
Last fall, Citizens United Productions released “Fire from the Heartland,” a film about the awakening of the conservative woman. America is facing a number of challenges due to the failed policies of President Obama, and some of the loudest voices against these policies have been mothers. In the film, Michelle Malkin explains this maternal activism, saying, “We do not want our kids’ and our grandkids’ futures taken away from us and we’re going to stand up and do whatever we need to do to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
