Thomas Jefferson who once said:
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
It's time we make the government fear the people, cut wasteful government spending, and we can start by reclaiming our liberties!
As a parent, it is our goal to give our children better lives than we had, but no matter how hard my husband and I, or even my sibling's work, I am not confident that we can fulfill this goal. In fact, our generation may be the first generation to fall short, and that is not something I am comfortable with.
I'm not comfortable mortgaging my children's and grandchildren's future.
Our government is out of control and I am motivated to do better for my children and my grandchildren.
When I represent the people of District20, I will be a tireless advocate for cutting wasteful spending initiatives like cash for clunkers, high speed railways, or pay-for-play payoffs like the $100 million dollars to a hospital, in exchange for Congressional votes during the healthcare debate in December 2009.
