Christmas Wishes

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!  Please remember the reason for this season, the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Amid all of your final Christmas preparations and last minute shopping, remember those less fortunate than each of us.  If you have not given a blood donation to your local blood bank in a while, consider donating today

Say a prayer for our soldiers serving us, each of whom would rather be home sharing our blessings.  In 1776, General George Washington moved forward with his plan to capture Trenton and the Hessian’s provisions during a terrible storm.  This surprise action, in a time of crisis, helped to secure our freedom.  I give thanks not only for good health, but also for the freedom secured by these great Americans.  This freedom, which you and I treasure, must be defended from tyranny, yes, even during the holidays.  We have had victories and a few defeats, but we must remain vigilant.

Congress and the current Obama executive agencies have placed several lumps of coal in our Christmas “collective” stockings.  The elves at the EPA have moved forward with their efforts to control carbon emissions, regulate both the coal fired Four Corners Power Plant and coal fired San Juan Generating Station in San Juan County, FCC plans to regulate the Internet, Department of Interior Wild Lands proposals, not to mention the irresponsible growth in federal spending.  We have no federal budget, the Federal Reserve is now the largest holder of US Treasuries, and the federal debt ceiling will be breached within a few months.  We need a few adults in government at both the state and Federal levels who can make unpopular, but necessary corrections.

My holiday wish for everyone is to take time to love and laugh, then please redouble your personal efforts to improve your community, our state, and our nation.  Milton Friedman said it well when he stated that we cannot govern by force, we must govern through persuasion of our ideas and solutions.  Stay involved and God Bless each of you, your friends, and family.

Santa Fe & Los Alamos

I enjoyed meeting with voters in Santa Fe and Los Alamos yesterday.  If you see our truck and trailer(aka our mobile office), stop in and visit for a bit.  My opponent is getting quite nervous as you see his television ad purchases skyrocket and insinuations of sign destruction are thrown around.  It is that end of campaign craziness that we cannot get caught up in.  The ruling class political machine is afraid of you and will lash out however it can.

I have enjoyed competition my entire life, even when the odds are stacked against my team and myself.  I know in this election that the great people of New Mexico are with me.  I will continue to campaign with character and dignity, while my opponent tries to create fear and mischaracterizes me.  Please redouble your efforts to contact your friends, neighbors, and family.  We are less than six days to creating the change that believes in you.  Thank you and God Bless You!

Clovis, Tucumcari, & Farmington

Voters are energized based upon my meetings in Clovis, Tucumcari, & Farmington the past couple of days.  Thank you for your efforts to date, but as I stated in Farmington.  It is time to redouble our efforts in these final days to get conservative common sense voters to cast their ballot.  Now is not the time to waver, nor falter in our steps toward a better future.  America is that shining city on the hill.  The beacon of light for all.

Please tune-in for the final televised debate of this election.  Rep. Lujan and I will be on KOAT Channel 7 at 4 pm today.  If you are an undecided voter, please tune in and see the difference between a career politician and a citizen representative.  Every vote will be needed to ensure victory.  We must win the election in order to restore responsible governance to Washington.

Mileage

We continue to put on the mileage traveling the district.  Stops in Farmington, Chama, Taos, Red River, Springer, Las Vegas, Portales, and Clovis in the past two (2) days.  We have traveled well over 110,000 miles since starting the campaign a year ago.  I continue to hear the same message from voters that Rep. Lujan has failed to listen to them and failed to represent their interests through his votes.

I continue to hear from small businesses that his votes on health care and raising taxes, as well as his failure to address extending the lower tax rates for everyone gives uncertainty to all at a time where we need certainty.

My opponent continues to distort the truth and offers no solutions merely talking point rhetoric to our challenges we face.  I look forward to meeting with many of you in our final get out the vote efforts.  This election is so close that every single vote will count and might make the difference between continuing the era of ruling class political leadership in this state, or taking the more difficult course of freedom.  Thank you for your prayers as we push forward to victory.

Gallup & Crownpoint

Oct

2010

This weekend, I spent visiting with voters in Gallup and Crownpoint.  Often the Navajo people are left out of the discussion by our Federal representatives who merely focus their attention in the Rio Grande Corridor.

I was warmly received and we distributed well over 800 copies of the Constitution.  Navajo veterans agreed that my proposal to ensure vouchers could be used for both mental and physical care at local physicans rather than traveling to the VA would be extremely helpful.

I will listen to all the voters around the district and I will hold the Federal Government accountable for the many promises made.  If we want Washington to work for us, then its time to change our Congressman.  I respectfully ask for your vote.

Constitution Day

Sep

2010

Congratulations America.  Our Constitution is 223 years old today.  We have passed out well over 20,000 copies of the Constitution of the United States during my campaign effort.  There is a hunger for a better understanding of our founding father’s belief in a limited government.  Members of both political parties, Republican and Democrat, have trampled upon our individual liberty.  They believe that their bigger government solution will cure our ills.

It will not.  I had a gentleman in Los Alamos ask me if we are a Christian nation.  I said yes.  He didn’t like the response.  I won’t apologize.  Our founding fathers overwhelming believed in the Christian religion and a belief that there is one God who created the Universe and we are placed here upon the Earth to worship him.  We will be judged in the next life by how we treat others in this one.  Not my words…..I paraphrase the words of Benjamin Franklin.  The sole founding father to have signed all three (3) of America’s most important founding documents.  The Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris, and the Constitution.

So today, this weekend, as we celebrate fall’s arrival.  Take out your copy of the Constitution.  Read some or all of it to your children.  Discuss its relevance today with discussions on Health Care, Home Mortgages, Stimulus Funding, Immigration, and freedom.

Our founder’s believed we all had equal opportunity to succeed.  Not equal success.  The difference in this election between my opponent and I…..is that he believes in Government to try to solve your problems.  I believe in you and divine providence to solve your and my problems.  Government is many times the impediment.

Several people have asked me why Minority Leader John Boehner is not helping out my race for Congress, since he is helping Jon Barela and Steve Pearce in their races.  My answer.  I don’t know.  When he asks me for my vote next January for him to be the next Speaker, I will be listening intently.

I need your help.  Please feel free to print out my flyers and hand them out.  As always your donation is appreciated.  May God continue to bless you and our great nation.  We have 45 days until the election!
