Freedom isn’t free

Generations of Americans have paid a heavy price to protect it. Six-hundred thousand union soldiers fought a war to demand it. Two generations of young Americans fought in world wars to preserve it. America made untold sacrifices in the cold war to win it. Thousands endeavored here and abroad after 9/11 against an evil that wanted to destroy it.

Ronald Reagan once said that ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.’ Truer words have not been spoken.

In this campaign for the United States Senate, I will speak for Americans who cherish their freedoms and want a Senator who will actually fight to keep them, preserve them, protect them, advance them.

Those who want to live their lives are defined by their faith in God and the wisdom of the Bible.
Those who affirm that all have a right to life, the right to defend themselves and their loved ones, to speak freely as they see fit absent fear of being shunned, hated or silenced.

Those who believe they have a right to raise their children and instill in them the values they know will serve them through life’s journey.

Those who know the value of hard work and persistence to become who they want to be, on their own terms, in their own way.

The threats to our freedoms are no longer veiled.

Many of us now wonder whether our children and our grandchildren will live free. More than any other single cause, none is more important than preserving freedom for the next generation.
