General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

Did you ever imagine that politicians in Congress would take over 1/6th of the American economy with unconstitutional legislation that they do not understand, and completely against the will of the American people?

Did you ever think that Government would be talking about a panel of so-called experts deciding who could and who could not get life-saving medical treatments?

Did you ever imagine an America where we would prosecute our military heroes, while at the same time trying to bring terrorists to American soil to give them the same rights as you or I?

Did you ever imagine that we would have a president that would stand shoulder to shoulder with approval beside the Mexican President in our Capital as he scolded one of our states and our Congress?

Did you ever imagine that in America, an unelected Government official could arbitrarily cut executive pay in a private business 50, 70, or 90 percent?

Did you ever imagine that a Federal agency would be giving school children political propaganda to bring them on the side of the president?

Did you ever think that we would have an executive branch that was more concerned about Israel's settlement building, than its survival?

After thinking about those issues, think about the person who would fight the hardest to ensure that we are doing the right thing.

Will this person you select have the courage to stand up to the administration, the party, and special interests?

Will they have the gumption, and the energy to be part of the solution, and ensure we put our country back on the right path?

As I walk the streets of this district, people of all walks of life are scared. People in this country do not believe they will pass on a better life to their children.

I will stand up to Washington. I will fight for the American people. I will not waiver.
