Smithhttp://www.theliberalmanifesto.com
About this author:
With the release of his new book, The Liberal Manifesto, Frank Smith has emerged as a rising authority on the liberal ideology. His diverse background and education have given him many years of experience in the practical and principled elements of American life.
After growing up in the government-run school system, Frank’s patriotism and love for country soon found him in the United States Navy. His life after military service led to a college education to pursue a degree in Political Science. After years of observing liberal bias in the education system and that of politicians in the Capitol, Frank began to question the inconsistencies and irrationality of the liberal movement. His dissent from the liberal education establishment soon led to an objective search for truth.
In his efforts to support himself and his family, Frank has gained much experience as a hired worker and a self-employed business owner. His years of hard work include earning various degrees that, combined with life experience, and independent scholarship, have given him unparalleled insight into the liberal motives and methods. It is his desire to use this insight to equip other Americans with the truth. Thomas Jefferson advocated educating and informing the American people because, “they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.

Edward (Ned) Elmer, M.D. is an orthopaedic surgeon who has practiced in Pleasanton, Floresville andPearsall since 1992. Dr. Elmer was born and educated in Massachusetts but spent much of his youth in rural New Hampshire, which is as conservative as Massachusetts is liberal. Dr. Elmer went to college at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland and medical school at Harvard. In 1989, he married Dr. Laura Elmer, a pediatrician and former Air Force Major. Theymoved to Texas (“Hallelujah!”) when his wife was stationed at Lackland AFB. They have 6 children.
Dr. Elmer's talk on Obamacare will address the many disastrous effects on life, liberty and property which can be
anticipated if this law is not repealed as soon as possible, as well as several possible strategies for repeal.
