Liberty County Republicans, 2010 is a crucial time for our government on the local, state, and national levels. As you can see, there are many candidates on the ballots. Are they true believers of their party’s values, or just trying to ride the wave of the Republican Party and the grassroots Tea Party movement to get a seat in power? Do they truly believe in the party’s platforms and idea’s?
I can assure you I do believe in the Republican Party’s platform and also with the Tea Party movement. I am not just riding the wave. At the age of 5 years, we had class elections and I voted for President Regan over President Carter. I was so happy he won. One could ask, did I really understand why I voted for a Conservative Republican for President at that age. My answer is to that question is the following; it is a way of life for my family. I am not a Johnny come lately true believer of the Conservative movement.
I believe in Limited Government:
The Government has made enough intrusion into our lives. We pay taxes to many government agencies and many times see little results. That is why the people are so reluctant to vote in new tax entities at our local level. We feel we will just pay more and not get any returns. Our government should stick to and focus on the governmental principles and powers that the founding fathers established. These consist of a strong national defense, individualism, and a Federal Government that does not promote a Socialist-Marxist agenda. We know how to take care of ourselves and in my opinion the National Government needs stay out of our lives.
I believe in Opportunity for all:
Everyone should have the opportunity to achieve their dreams, regardless of race, gender, or religion. The government should not inhibit this by higher taxes for small businesses. It seems the good ole boys always get ahead. If I am elected, everyone will have an equal opportunity to bid on contracts with the county.
I believe in Personal Responsibility:
Personal responsibility is what makes this country strong. We should adhere to the individualist ideology of the founders of this country. They told Britain that taxation without representation would not be tolerated and I believe that same core belief still exist in our hearts today. We may stumble and fall in our individual lives but we have to get up, continue to move forward, and not expect on over intrusive government to hold our hand. Then National Government is not the answer for a fruitful and productive life.
I believe in, Principled Innovative leadership:
If elected I will do my best to get the people involved in our government. I will hold meetings on the issues that are important to the precinct. I will also help individuals with their concerns, no matter how large or small. We as the governing body can do many great things together. I will restore faith in government, because it will be the people who help govern precinct 2.
I believe in Honest Compassion:
I have seen many times the great things we can do as a community when disasters strike. I will encourage citizens to get involved in their community. I ask the people of Liberty County to get involved. Join your local church, Lions Club, VFW, Rotary Club, etc. I am a member of some of these organizations and the good they do is inspiring. You will be able to see firsthand where your donations are used. It is not the government’s job to try and fix everything.
Last, but not least, I believe in Freedom:
Freedom that is God given, affirmed by our Founding Fathers, articulated in the Declaration of Independence, and protected by the Constitution. The government is slowly but surely taking away our freedoms that our forefathers fought for. It is time for us to take back our government and start doing as President Lincoln said: Government of the people, by the people, for the people.
It is my hope that you agree with the Conservative message that I support. I believe that the people of Liberty County want a Commissioner who believes in and stands for the Republican Platform and its ideology.
Conservatism is a way of life.
