The news of the passing of Phyllis Schlafly signals the end of an era in American politics. Ms. Schlafly was a cornerstone within the conservative American movement. Her book “A Choice not an Echo” will continue to be a guiding light for those of us in the political arena who are friends of freedom. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of working with Ms. Schlafly on a few select issues and always appreciated her knowledge and high degree of acumen not only in politics but in areas of national and international policy. In short, she will be missed by the many who have grown to respect her.
