A 1999 Cum Laude graduate of UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business, Christian has spent fifteen years as an award winning political activist and consultant in both North and South Carolina...with a little radio talk show hosting and newspaper editing thrown in for good measure. A self-described "Republitarian", Christian is an unabashed advocate of traditional free market capitalism and views passage of the FairTax as the single most effective method to combat the social manipulation and corruption found in government today. When not stressing over yet another new law, Christian enjoys treasure hunting, obscure European power metal bands, good beer, and anything related to Carolina Panthers football...except talking about the 2001 season. He's removed that from memory.

Conservatives Form House Freedom Caucus

In Congress, it is rarely the “lone wolf” that can get things done.  Individuals like Ron Paul can certainly set the tone of a debate or bring forth much needed perspective, but rarely does the single Congressman have the wherewithal to get good legislation passed.  Joining with others and having a base of support from […]
