When it comes to politics, I’m not as astute as say, my husband. I’ll ready admit that.
But I do know this. I’m also as sharp as or more so than the next guy or gal. I’m conservative, and when I’m unsure on an issue, I’m not afraid to ask questions or seek out answers.

And so, a few simple questions for Mares:
