We must work to keep the promises of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
We must protect the right to direct our daily lives, free from government intrusion, so long as our activities cause no harm to others. These rights include the freedom to worship as one chooses, the freedom to dissent, the freedom to make medical choices, and the freedom from unreasonable government searches and seizures, among many others.
Barriers to fulfilling one's potential must be removed. Discrimination has been an insidious barrier to many, and I believe that government plays a central role in guaranteeing equal opportunity to all citizens.
