Here is my recap of our Father’s Day visit with David Pepper:
***Independence Special through July 4 for new members. Sign up to receive invites to our ‘Speakeasy’ zoom salons and weekly wellness checkins, as well as access to archives and podcasts.*** 💘🇺🇸 We got through an entire hour without mentioning Donald Trump.
Bottom line, says Pepper, never give up:
Whether it’s challenging an incumbent who’s an extremist or a court case, we got to go everywhere and you never know when you might win… Even if it feels like an uphill battle — legally, politically, you name it — always keep fighting. You never know when you will have a surprise win.
