AS A CITIZEN What do I want from my congressman?

I want Him to stop, before backing ANY legislation and ask one question:

Does this legislation further or hinder the Core American Values set forth by the founders:?

1. Individual Liberty

2. Equal Protection (of all citizens) under the law?

3. The Right citizens have to Self-Protection

4. The Protection Of Private Property Rights

5. Limited Government

-I want a congressman who knows that: freedom is the foundation of American excellence (not government)

And that: There is no such thing as freedom that does not include the freedom of individuals to fail from their poor life’s decisions as well as to succeed from their great life’s decisions.

And that: it is not the purview of government to rescue individuals from the most important learning lessons in life that force self reliance through suffering the consequences of their own mistakes

I want a congressman who realizes that his service in government is to free the citizens, not to enhance his own resume’

I want a congressman who has the courage of a UNITED STATES MARINE in the heat of political battle facing down the enemies of liberty in legislative conflict, who realizes the importance of never compromising with evil.

I want a congressman who recognizes that socialism (the government ownership of the means of production) IS EVIL and has proven itself to be destructive to the ends of American core values.

I want a congressman who recognizes that fascism (the strict government control over the privately owned means of production) IS EVIL and will compromise nothing when facing it down.

I want a congressman who will stand on the side of the minority to repeal an unjust law no matter how large an obstacle it seems (the endurance of our great nation is worth it).

I want a congressman who remembers history and realizes that our founders pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to force our nation’s birth in the storm of Britain’s eminent attack and that many of the founders lost their lives and their homes, and their families were jailed and murdered in the process of the protection of these ideals based on Liberty and justice first, and personal comfort and security last.

I want a congressman who will make a list of EMERGENCY GOVERNMENT SERVICES that in case of disaster, our nation cannot do without , that eliminates non essential services and gets to the bare bones of government necessity………..AND ALWAYS RUN OUR GOVERNMENT WITH THAT LIST AND ELIMINATE ALL NON ESSENTIAL SERVICES.

I WANT A CONGRESSMAN WHO REMEMBERS THAT EVERY DIME TAKEN FROM ONE CITIZEN FOR GOVERNMENT USE , WAS MONEY WHICH THAT FAMILY COULD HAVE USED TO PAY FOR DIAPERS OR TO SEND THEIR DAUGHTER TO COLLEGE; AND SPEND IT WITH ACCORDING REVERENCE FOR THAT SUBSTITUTION.

I want a congressman who understands that government is bureaucracy, and that bureaucracy adds cost to anything that needs to be done; And considers that private entities can do it (whatever it is ) with more efficiency than a large bureaucratic government program.

I want a congressman interested in reading and restoring the prominence of the TENTH AMENDMENT to the US Constitution.

I want a congressman who will return our great republic to its potential by reducing the tyranny of the bureaucracy and allowing liberty to be the driving force in our economy, not dependence.

I want a congressman who realizes that our language, our culture, and our borders must be preserved in order to preserve that which makes this nation great: American citizens.

I prefer a congressman who has served in the military and understands that service of the individual is essential for the machine to function. And that liberty has enemies and they must be met with the ferocity and uncompromising assault that they deserve; and that it is far better to sacrifice the self for the sake of the corps and those great men who went before us , than to dishonor ourselves in a selfish compromise with evil to secure a shallow personal victory.

I want a congressman who walks into the halls of legislature as a soldier walks into the face of the enemy, defending his (way of) life, his constituents’ liberty and all of our sacred honor by removing the evil that has infested our great country in recent decades (DEPENDENCE) which hides under the guise of security.

The greatest mission of the congressman should be to implement the necessities of government and remove the waste ;while limiting the tyranny of the bureaucracy, and work to preserve the Core American Values set forth in the constitution by the founders of this great nation.
