Her Mission: Jacqueline is an expert in the Cycles of History and generational patterns.

She looks forward to watching the new HERO generation rise up and do the right thing. We only get one chance in every life-time to make a difference. This is her time. She and her husband believe that freedom can win with enough like-minded educated individuals on board. She also recognizes that our culture must change from an employee-accumulation mindset to one of entrepreneur-investor mindset. She believes as the culture changes, our voting patterns and desire to be more involved with our local elected servants will increase. As people develop wealth and property, they have more reason to pay attention to their government.
