Hi, this is Dave and Barb.
Are you tired of the negativity and being attacked for your beliefs? Are you tired of surrendering our streets and communities to anarchists? We in the Great American Syndicate believe this country needs to shift its focus away from hate, and back toward hope. We are Americans who want to be a part of this country’s path to reclaiming peace and returning to its patriotic core.
We are a community that offers our members the platform and the resources to do exactly that by focusing on the four foundations of freedom; self, family, community, and country.
Surround yourself with people who understand the value of personal accountability over victimization, who realize their own pain is meant to be overcome instead of abused as a justification to hurt others, and who stand ready to assist those ready to take an active role in achieving their own potential.
Dave and Barb
This is only for those ready to commit to being a part of the movement AGAINST dismantling the American Dream, and TOWARD leading by example. If you commit to this path you will leave mediocrity behind. Do not go any further unless you are willing to do the work that will strengthen yourself, your family, your community, and country.
The Great American Syndicate is for those Americans who are tired of living in fear of voicing your beliefs and standing for OUR core American values. So if you believe there is nothing you can do to overcome all the challenges in this country and in your own life, this is not the community for you. But if you know personal accountability is a game-changer, and are ready to help yourself and others prove that America is packed with greatness, then you’ve come to the right place.
The Power Of Patriotism
In a country that prides itself on being a “melting pot” there are different cultures, colors, languages, backgrounds, political views, religions, and countless other things that set us apart from one another. The one rock we all have- the one foundation that we all stand upon, is our American citizenship and the American Spirit.
Patriotism in the one thread that weaves among us all. That thread is what inspired tens of thousand of people to stand together for a few precious moments, before a sporting event began. For the few moments the anthem played, rivals stood as one.
For the few moments the anthem played, we set aside our stress and our concerns and our differences and we looked upon each other as fellow Americans. We honored those who serve and sacrifice, and those who will forever mourn the fallen, by appreciating the blessings before us. We allowed one another that courtesy, that reprieve from the constant onslaught of negativity and the awareness of the very real work we still have to do, to make this country even better.
Not since 9/11 has this country come together like that.
Patriotism is the driving force that inspires men and women to step forward and serve. It is the love of a country and our fellow Americans as one people, and the knowledge that no matter what may attempt to destroy us, the American Spirit will always prevail.
Patriotism is not the blind love of an imperfect country but it is the absolute love for that country that fuels the will to continue working toward making that country better. It is the blanket of pride and unity and security and opportunity that millions of people flee towards.
Patriotism is the foundation upon which all Americans stand, regardless of our differences. Without it, we are just another land filled with people who care only for themselves and their beliefs, and condemn those who stray from those beliefs. We are just another place where it is every man for himself, where we forget how to live with grace and instead allow rage to rule.
Patriotism is what will restore this country’s inner peace, resume positive steps toward meaningful change, and ensure every American lives free.
So Why Would I Listen To You?
Because WE are YOU
We are everyday Americans who have been through massive personal and professional pain, and come out on top.
We cannot understand precisely what your pain and challenges are, but our own lives have taught us how to overcome enormous adversity. And the areas we have not personally experienced, we have learned extensively about through interviewing over 150 amazing Americans on our podcast. Dave has learned through working with hundreds of clients in business, and Barb has learned through helping hundreds of veterans and military community members navigate their own challenges as a professional Veterans Advocate.
Still skeptical? Maybe thinking we are overplaying our experience?
That’s understandable – we get it. Everyone is an “expert”
these days, right? Okay here are the highlights:
Dave was 3 years old when his father killed himself. He loves his mom, but always struggled without a father. In his 30’s, he filed bankruptcy, his marriage ended, and he was then a single father of 2. He learned how to balance it all while finding a mentor, learning a business, coaching hundreds of clients, and working with hundreds more clients in his own real estate investment company.
Barb was a 32 year old wife and mother of 4 young boys when her husband deployed to Iraq. Ten days later her husband was murdered by a fellow soldier, who was acquitted after a 3 1’2 year court martial process in one of the most notorious cases in the United States Military. Barb earned her masters in criminal justice, wrote a book about the case, and built a network of survivors while raising her kids through repeated trauma – including a relationship packed with emotional, financial, and other abuse. It took her 10 years to find her footing and reclaim her own life.
She spent years serving as a Veterans Services Officer, helping our veterans and military families tap into hundreds of thousands of dollars of benefits. She sits on the boards of two nonprofits she once received help from. Today she has her own network of inspirational Americans. She’s been featured in Taya Kyle’s book, American Spirit and interviewed on national news shows and podcasts. She’s interviewed hundreds of incredible Americans for the American Snippets podcast and written hundreds of moving articles on them. She is almost done with her 3rd book, and she takes her message to stages across the country in powerful keynote presentations.
These experiences taught us about victimization vs personal accountability. We felt the impact of people who stepped forward to mentor and support us, and we have paid that forward. We have learned how to address the challenges and inequalities in life in a positive, meaningful manner and we have learned the power of creating and building relationships based on adding value to each other. We have accepted there will never be an end to all Evil, but that the human spirit has the power to overcome it.
Last but not least, we learned that this country is overflowing with incredible people. We recognize that America remains a country worthy of defending from both foreign enemies trying to destroy us, and the enemies who live right here alongside us. We realize that We, the People, must want to work toward all people flourishing – even people we disagree with or are different from.
And that is just a snapshot of what our lives have taught us.
Today, together, we have built American Snippets. We have a powerful and passionate network across this country, of people who are genuine heroes in the military and law enforcement worlds, selfless citizens who dedicate their lives to extraordinary work helping others, survivors of unspeakable trauma, massively successful and influential leaders in business, entrepreneurship, and resilience, athletes, authors, and more. That network is opened up for our Members.
Each of our guests has overcome various levels of hardships, tragedies, and challenges, from depression, grief, death-defying injuries, trauma, financial ruin, betrayals, fleeing communist and terrorist regimes, etc.
Many of these guests will be joining us for live Q&A’s, within the community. So we have excellent backup.
Are you ready to invest $1000 in Membership?
Just kidding- this is not that kind of community. But we do need you to have some skin in the game, so to speak, and we figure $17.00 should do it.
Are you ready to build a network across this country? The kind of network that will tell you to get your lazy ass up and attack the day when you post about how tired you are, or all the reasons you can’t do anything? The kind of network you can create lasting personal and professional relation ships with? That shares your belief that patriotism is something worth defending and that actually does things to lead themselves and their families through challenges?
Are you ready to inspire your own community as you lead by example?
Are you done with the insanity that is seizing this country and ready to push back against the chaos by conquering your own challenges and building stronger foundations in your own life?
Or are you just killing time, scrolling through the internet, telling yourself you are “working?” Are you someone who thinks this entire site and community is garbage, because you prefer a socialist country that discourages personal accountability and individual greatness? Would you rather sit this one out and wait to see what happens before you decide if you are going to step up and be a part of your own destiny?
Only you can answer that.
If you are ready to be a part of something truly incredible for your own life, your family, your community, and your country, we are here to help.
