Loren Spivack is trying to resurrect the conservative movement. One bumper sticker at a time.
Spivack, 42, just opened “Free Market Warrior” kiosks at Carolina Place Mall in Pineville and at a mall in Hickory.
Among the merchandise are conservative-themed bumper stickers (“I’ll be as gracious to your president as you were to mine”), T-shirts and bobble-heads.
A Massachusetts native, he launched his business on the Web. He just moved to Charlotte to set up shop after studying the region’s demographics and voting patterns.
He votes Republican but says his main loyalty is to free market principles he sees being eroded. He doesn’t have much patience for Washington politicians of either party.
Spivack says the “next step of revolution” is for Republicans to regain control of Congress, then go after that party which he says “lost its way.”
“I’m doing my part to help out,” he says. “It has to start from the grassroots.”
