If a majority of Americans lose their understanding of history and the truth and lose their love for America, America will not survive.

National Borders and the Value of America as a City On a Hill
This essay was the basis of a presentation at the program “Stop Open Borders: Say No to Poverty, Crime, and Tyranny” on July 29, 2020, hosted by the Gray Republican Committee. A video of the presentation, along with videos of the other speakers, is listed on the GRC YouTube Channel.
I start with a question–a dilemma that does indeed have an answer. How can good-hearted, ethical, moral people make the suggestion to “stop open borders”? The first few words of John 3:16 are: “For God so loved the world.” With imagination, one can sense that God looks down at the world and sees all human beings, of every color, race, creed, and nationality, as sacred individuals born with the light of God dwelling in their hearts.

Essay: Why Socialism Would Destroy America’s Economy and Freedoms
This essay was the basis for the first speech at the event of the same name, on November 20, 2019, co-hosted by the Gray and Windham Republican Committees with the co-sponsorship and support of 50 additional organizations and leaders. Around 100 people attended.
Socialism would destroy America’s economy and freedoms because it’s a totalitarian system rooted in hatred, envy, and revenge that gives political and economic power to a bureaucratic élite who inevitably become corrupt as they steal from the masses whom they set out to liberate. As socialism removes economic and political freedoms, it crushes the human soul and turns its citizens into jailers and slaves. Personal dreams and ambitions fade away, and society descends into bored mediocrity, corruption, poverty, fear, and death.
Essay: Free Speech, Hate Speech, & Censorship: Winning the 2020 Elections
~ This essay was the basis of a public speech given on August 15, 2019 in Cumberland, Maine, co-hosted by the Gray and Cumberland Republican Town Committees. Brown is the Chairman of the Gray Republican Committee. You can view that speech here.
First, liberals and conservatives need to join together and affirm that we want to be free and that living a life of freedom requires thought and free-flowing dialogue. Totalitarians don’t like freedom of thought at all.
Video: Free Speech, Hate Speech, & Censorship: Winning the 2020 Elections

This is a video of an event co-hosted by the Gray and Cumberland Republican Town Committees in Maine, and co-sponsored by 32 additional town committees, conservative nonprofits, and leaders.
