My Fellow Arizonans,
I have a basic philosophy that I adhere to: Freedom and Liberty come first!
That philosophy has been forged by growing up in a traditional American family, attending public school and college, decades of hard work, fighting to preserve freedom and liberty as a soldier and my experience as a husband and father of two sons.
I consider myself a “Traditional Republican.” By that I mean I don’t get my ideas or beliefs from Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly. I don’t get my marching orders fed to me by the elites of a political party. I definitely don’t come to a conclusion by what I see or read in the media.
I get my ideas where every great American, over the centuries, has gotten them. I get my political philosophy from men like James Madison and John Jay; from great leaders like Patrick Henry, Abraham Lincoln and Samuel Adams; and from men of wisdom like Ben Franklin, and Thomas Paine.
Most of all, when it comes to those key issues effecting our state, I’ll base my decisions on what you, the people, will tell me in the coming months of this campaign and hopefully over the coming years as I serve you in the Legislature.
