“It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” — SAMUEL ADAMS
I love America. My adopted country opened its doors to me and my family so that we could walk into the greatness of its freedom and its founding values. Every time I look at our beautiful flag and place my hand over my heart for the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our National Anthem, I am reminded of our nation’s promise to all her citizens– as the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Yet freedom is never really free, is it? It always comes at a great price. Does not each successive generation of Americans have to pay the price for due diligence in order to secure these treasures for ourselves and our posterity? Is it not time that every American ask– what will our legacy be to the next generation?
I have asked myself this question and frankly, I don’t like what I see happening to our beloved country. My candidacy is in part a response to the great challenge before us. America stands at the raw edge of a great precipice. We see an ever expanding impersonal government that spends money it does not have, and passes laws that are blind to the Law-Giver. It is devouring all that is good and honorable.
As your Senator, I pledge to do my utmost to take any and all actions directed at curbing this nation’s current fiscal crisis. I will strive to articulate the economic needs of Floridians within the framework of a smaller government that supports private sector growth, job creation and lower taxes.
Florida is a state blessed by God in so many ways. Not just for its beauty and natural resources, but more importantly, for its wonderful people– many of whom have come to America, like my family did, in search of freedom from tyranny and want. In search of a dream for themselves and their families. They deserve representatives who will defend their constitutional rights.
All Floridians should be able to follow their dreams—without the threat of a bloated federal government that taxes them excessively while taking away their sacred rights, including the right to life, which is granted to them by God– and secured by our Constitution.
The family, which is the building block and foundation for a civilized society—is under attack. The family existed from man’s beginning– before the creation of the State and the Church. We need to support legislation that is pro-family– and vigorously oppose legislation that endangers the family.
Abraham Lincoln was inspired by the Founding Fathers who preceded him, as he fought for unity and strength. The danger that Lincoln faced then is once again before us. We are becoming a fractured nation. In this present crisis we must pull together—or we will fall apart. We need leaders in Washington who will have the strength of character and the will to succeed in rebuilding our nation—not just economically, but morally as well.
This is why I am presenting my candidacy for the United States Senate. I pledge to listen to Floridians, and to represent, uphold and lead in everything that is good, everything that is noble—and everything that supports and protects life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this Great State of Florida– and in this greatest of nations.
