My goal in politics is to preserve Liberty by re-emphasizing personal responsibility. To me, Liberty means maximum personal freedom in tandem with maximum personal responsibility. Our ancestors viewed Liberty as the opportunity to succeed or fail based as much as possible on personal character alone. America, from its beginning, has appealed to those who crave liberty, and so they came. Love of liberty is in our genes. I fear that we are forgetting who we are. Contact Info
