Political commentator and host of the The Edwards Notebook Ron Edwards was in Utica last night to speak to the Mohawk Valley Patriots about his idea of re-building America.

At the Church of Christ on Herkimer Road Edwards told an audience that despite what is happening, he believes America has a great future.

Edwards says his plan to strengthen America begins by rebuilding the seven pillars of society.

He says these core bases create a civilized society, and America is moving away from those values.
