First off, I would like to thank the 12,428 Liberty-minded voters in the 96th district who took the time to go to the polls and cast a vote for smaller government, more freedom, and demand fiscal responsibility from our elected officials. Unfortunately, this time around we didn’t obtain enough votes to win the election and our district isn’t quite ready for a Liberty candidate. However, like I always say – you will always get exactly the type of government you vote for. With the re-election of Barack Obama, and other big government statists, we can expect more of the same – a larger, more powerful government, unsustainable debt, reduction of personal Liberties, and our Constitutional rights being slowly usurped.
As I have said to many people on the campaign trail – I am a Ron Paul Republican and will continue to be a Ron Paul Republican. His message of Liberty has spread like wildfire throughout the country this election period, which has caused people like me to do what I never thought I would do – run for office to make a difference. Much like Ron Paul, I may not have won this election, but the people I have reached and the conversations I have had throughout the campaign have been priceless. The election has been lost, but the message of Liberty remains strong and I’m not giving up this easily. This is my first run for a public office, but I certainly can’t see it being my last.
The revolution is alive and well…
