In the late 1960s, my oldest brother brought our entire family to the attention of the FBI. He ran an underground newspaper in Flint, Michigan, that questioned authority and advocated for legalizing Marijuana and ending the Vietnam War. Unlike some radicals of the time, my brother was a veteran who loved America and shunned communism. But exercising free speech and questioning authority can bring trouble. As a little girl I was aware that my big brother was under scrutiny for criticism of government officials. My parents may not have agreed with all of his views, but they didn’t shield me from them.
We, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton’s campaign and a former member of the George W. Bush Administration, may not agree on many public policy issues. Figuratively speaking, we wear different colored hats. But we have joined together to sound the alarm against censorship.
On this Wednesday edition of Freedom & Prosperity Radio Joe Thomas is joined by Lori Roman, President of the American Constitutional Rights Union, to discuss HIPPA and how much they should know.

We should all be able to agree it should be easy to vote and hard to cheat. The integrity of the ballot box is essential to the continued success of the United States constitutional system. Now is the time to protect the integrity of every individual's vote by ensuring their votes are not diluted by fraudulent votes. Voter rolls across the country are filled with names of individuals who have moved, died, or are ineligible to legally vote.
Politicians and bureaucrats have decided that they can wave a magic “COVID” wand and make constitutional rights disappear. College students have been among those hit hardest by the edicts. Many students have been forced to choose between medical choice and privacy and their continued education.
ACRU President Lori Roman addresses importance on our Protect Military Votes project after military ballots found discarded in Pennsylvania.
For years, liberals have told Americans they do not need guns because the police have guns. But now many leftists advocate defunding police altogether. This brings serious public policy questions. In Leftist Land, who exactly would have guns? And who is responsible for protecting Americans?
My great-great grandfather was a hero of the Civil War--a soldier of the Ohio Cavalry who was wounded and captured. He almost died in the most notorious and horrific Confederate prisoner of war camp. As a child, each Memorial Day, I heard the stories about the War Between the States as my dad put flowers on his great granddad’s grave. The stories were not told with animosity. Just facts. But I developed my own prejudice against Southerners based on those facts.
In a podcast interview with The Daily Signal, Lori makes critical points about mob destruction of our national treasures, and calls citizen patriots to action through ACRU’s Protect Monuments project.
