Daniel Payne

Daniel Payne is a writer living in Richmond, Virginia—a town known variously as the fifth-most dangerous city in the United States (2005) and the happiest city in the country (2014). He publishes regularly at The Federalist, where he is a senior contributor, and his spare time is spent building compost piles and reading Midatlantic colonial history.
Christ following, wife, mother, grandmother, and small business owner with passions for holistic wellness, gardening, raising critters, and preserving our Constitutional liberties especially free speech, religious freedom, and the 2nd Amendment. God gave me the most wonderful husband, who I love dearly and am grateful to have the opportunity to work with every day as his Producer in this Real Side venture. When you see my posts, they are truly mine. So please don't hold him accountable for what I write. Contrary to what some say, I'm not a Stepford wife. I have my own opinions and am willing to share some of them here.
