John Philip Sousa, IV has followed in his Great Grandfather's footsteps, not as a musician, but as a citizen of the United States who is passionate about helping to stop the misdirection his country is taking. Sousa, IV loves his country and in his own way does what he can to ensure that the Republic thrives.
