My continuing pledge to you:

I will not vote for any new or increased taxes.

I'll continue to stand against the over-reaching, micro-managing arm of government.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
