AboutMichael Smith, Author at Affluent Christian Investor

Michael Smith

Michael Smith

Michael H. Smith writes with a different take on culture, economics, constitutional politics, and the state of the Church from Southside Virginia. As a Catholic convert holding a BA in political science from Franciscan University, he remains in recovery from earlier careers as a general contractor and the insurance business. Present day hobbies include general aviation and never completed little construction projects around the house. Recreation can be found in pickin' and singin' old time country and bluegrass music with other senile citizens, pleasant offset to the lingering habit of Republican Party politics.
