Hi, I am Leslie Williams.
I was born in the city, raised, and lived in the same city until 2016 when I married Lonny Ray. I spent most of my life working multiple jobs while raising kids. Most of the time “stealing from Peter to pay Paul”.
In my free time, I would teach my children their rights. I tried to help them learn and understand The Constitution, and I was active in fighting for those rights. I was active in the Tea Party. I volunteered my time with “Freedom Works” and a few times helped Sen Mike Lee with his campaigns. I also worked with them on the campaign and the fight against Common Core. I started to become very active against corruption during Obama’s campaign for President. Most of my adult life has been some sort of activism in the political world, standing up for what is right but staying in the back to not draw too much attention.
Lonny Ray and I got married and I moved out of state to live with him in Washington. “Freedom Works” was not active in my area, so I just fell back to voicing my opinions on social media. After much prayer and thought, providence God, moved us to Republic, Washington. Our goal since moving here is to grow close to God as a family, become as self-sufficient as possible, and raise our children to be responsible good citizens. The COVID pandemic shut down our State and Country along with our stores, restaurants, and churches. When everything opened again our church opened with the restrictions, and with that came new rules for those who were “allowed” to go to church. Needless to say, our family was not on the list of those that were allowed to go back to church. One Sunday morning after 6 months of not being allowed at church, while crying, I looked at Lonny and said, “Someone must do something. This is not right; our rights are being taken away from us.” That was when THE PAMPHLET was born.
I am the owner of a monthly publication teaching our country's history and the tyranny they fought. We compare the tyranny of then to the tyranny of today. If we learn from our past, we can fight the tyranny of today. We teach civic duties and responsibilities. We teach freedom and liberty. THE PAMPHLET is handed out for free. With the option of buying subscriptions and donating, to help fund the ministry. THE PAMPHLET is now in all 50 states, and 59 countries around the world. The eighteen-hour days that are put in between the family, farm, and THE PAMPHLET are all done for the love of our country. The countless hours that I put in on the administrative side while changing dirty diapers and rearing a family are for the freedom of all Americans.

Patricia Kent is a farm girl, born and raised in Malad, Idaho where she learned to work hard, play hard, respect others, and love this beautiful, covenant land of America.
Patricia was raised in a patriotic family. Her ancestors helped settle this nation, coming into Jamestown and many ports along the eastern seaboard. They fought and some died in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, and continue to serve in the military today; It was no surprise when Patricia joined the Army Reserves in the 1970s to serve her country.
Her Great Great Grandfather spent many years working to help Utah become a state and helped write the Utah State Constitution.
Patricia graduated from Weber State College in 1980 with a BS degree in Political Science and a secondary education teaching certificate. She moved to St. George, Utah in 1981 to teach high school, where she taught physical education, AP History, American Government, and Law and coached girls' athletics.
After her studies in Political Science, Patricia said she would never get involved in politics because it was too corrupt. However, as the years have passed and the liberty and freedoms of the people have diminished under the hands of our elected officials, she has stepped up and made her voice heard. She has ran for public office. Been a delegate to state conventions. Was the Chairwoman of the Washington County Tea Party Coalition. Was the National IAP Chair. Is the founder. She founded and is the Chair of the Liberty Action Coalition and speaks out constantly on the Constitution and what we must do to restore it to its proper place in our government.
Patricia's goal for the Independent American Party is to reach out to all Americans, to unite "We The People" in the cause of restoring the original Constitution to its rightful place as the governing Law of the Land. To build the IAP to become the clear party choice of all liberty-loving people!
