Why am I running for City Council?
"Making Life Simple Again"
Government at all levels have gotten too involved in our lives.
Those who seek to pass many of these laws think they are doing
us a favor, from their point of view. My basic thought on
passing a laws is: " It is Governments job to us protect us
from others, not from ourselves.
It is not the function of Government to keep the citizens from falling into error;, it is the function of the citizen
to keep the Government from falling into error. - Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court
