This July 4th holiday marks our freedom and independence. For all. No matter how hard the mainstream media tries to push division. Or make anyone that opposes the mainstream media's views are bigots, racists, and extremists. Because that simply isn't true.
Everyone was welcome to the Festival of Truth. Held out on a gorgeous countryside property in Vermontville, Michigan. There was music, food, plenty to do for children to do. Including a dunk tank, bounce house, slip 'n slide, and a magic show. Adults could gather and sit in fellowship, walk the grounds, or just sit and relax under a shade tree.
There was a lineup of music and entertainment, along with a few candidates running for office within the state of Michigan.
Ralph Rebrandt, candidate for governor has served as the lead pastor and recently retired at the end of June from Oakland Hills Community Church in Farmington Hills since 1987 and also serves as the Chairman of the OPC Church Extension Committee. Additionally, he is the Chaplain for the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, Southeastern Michigan Chiefs of Police, Farmington Hills and Beverly Hills Police Departments. Ralph serves on the board of the Farmington Hills Crime Prevention Advisory Committee and is a member of the Board of Governors for the Council for National Policy in Washington D.C.

Ralph believes in truth regardless of anything. He wants transparency, accountability, and righteousness in Lansing and America. He stated that we as a whole have been lulled into inactivity, including the church. And that needs to change. Part of his platform is something called "Operation Roundtable," which is a segment of society to help him as governor make decisions from the people on whether or not bills are passed or need amending. Four of the solutions in his plan include:
- Election Integrity
- Budget Accountability
- Education Reforms
- Constitutional Protection
Jon Rocha, a 5-year US Marine veteran and single father is running for Congress in Michigan's 6th District against Rep. Fred Upton. Rocha was born and raised in Kalamazoo County and feels the people need more than what Upton has done. Which is vote against his constituents. "So few are willing to stick their necks out." and that it's time to do something. Rocha's platform includes election integrity, lockdowns, abortions (pro-life), the second amendment, and immigration reform, just to name a few.

Tom Norton, candidate for Congress running for District.

This program, Empower the Mitten is a community of like-minded folks that are working on this from multiple angles. They are looking into a Christian school that will hopefully be operating by the start of the 2021-2022 school year, and a charter school for the greater Eaton County area. Empower the Mitten also has informative links on COVID-19, vaccines, civil rights, and more. They have developed a survey you can fill out that asks questions about citizen's feelings about our current education system. It only takes 30 seconds to fill out: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScUdsJF5tiMTXVYSpB2paftd1DvYVaNzCF4DZHJ17LzUxQVKg/viewform
