Jon was raised on a dairy farm in Northern Wisconsin before attending Monmouth College in Illinois after high school. By the age 21 he was graduated cum laude with degrees in Political Science and History, awarded Departmental Honors, and was named a Senate Scholar by that institution. Jon was also inducted into the Phi Alpha Theta international historical honor society.

Following his collegiate years, Jon spent the next decade immersed in the ultra-competitive arena of politics and political campaigns. It was in this rough and tumble arena that he developed the conviction that the United States of America is careening headlong down the road to its own destruction. Frustrated by the refusal of politicians and the career bureaucrats to put the interests of the people ahead of their own ideological bias and personal motives, Jon joined the private sector.

However, he continued to nurture his other great passion, history. He has written and published two historical novels that explore life during the time of the First Crusade, Road to Byzantium and Beyond Byzantium. Jon looks forward to focusing once again on his scholarly pursuits in the field of history, but the events and cultural trends of recent years have compelled him to voice his concerns about the future of America. This is his petition to the nation:

“If we humans, deeply flawed as we all are, blithely persist in discounting the evidence presented to us by our own history, we do so at the peril of our own lives and liberties. But even worse, we will do so at the peril of the future generations to come.”

Jon Anthony Hauser


For those who require proof there is a God, one only to needs to make an objective examination of history and the world today.  The greatest evidence there is a God is demonstrated by what mankind is capable of when some among us insist they are equivalent to God, and are allowed to act as such.”
