Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest Thanksgiving week news including Mike’s historical viewpoint to help make sense of it all plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125.“The fact is, most left-liberals do hate and fear libertarianism more than they oppose modern conservatism.

They all favor having a strong military. We tend to want to abolish standing armies.” – Anthony Gregory
