James Shackelford

James believes in the 9 principles that this country was founded upon:

1 ) America Is Good.
2 ) I believe in God and He is the Center of my life.
3 ) I must always try to  be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
4 ) The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
5 ) If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
6 ) I have a right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
7 ) I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force to be charitable.
8 ) It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or share my personal opinion.
9 ) The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

James has also received recognition from multiple organizations in his lifespan:

  • National Society of Collegiate Scholars
  • Golden Key
  • Who’s Who In High School Education
  • Palm Beach Benevolent Association Leadership Recognition
