This year’s Republican National Convention looked different, not only because of the lack of a responsive crowd. Featuring “everyday” Americans, honest stories were shared, frequently outshining the polished politicians' speeches.
You should know about these everyday Americans. Each speech is only 4–11 minutes long and gets right to the core of the importance of freedom and liberty. Listen to these stories and the contrast between Republicans and Democrats will become clearer and clearer.
