This site is being prepared for the 2014 Campaign. It will also be used as a tool to explore and learn more about our democratic governance processes. I will periodically post personal thoughts and post links to articles, videos, and other resources; pulling into one location subject matter pertanent to understanding our unique country and what makes it work.
The most important value a person can bring to the responsibility of representing their constituency is character. That person must have principles, ethics and a morality that are consistent in both their private and public life. Their guiding values should be based on a Biblical Worldview. As a future candidate, these are issues I believe in:
Thomas Jefferson said: "In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
Article: "Freedom in Black and White" People of a free society don't expect government to solve their problems.
Section 1. The equality and rights of persons.
We hold it to be self-evident that all persons are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, the enjoyment of the fruits of their own labor, and the pursuit of happiness.
(Comment by Richard Button: This is almost verbatim from our USA Declaration of Independence, with the addition of the phrase "...the enjoyment of the fruits of their own labor,..." which I believe was added by the framers of our NC Constitution to emphasize that each person has a right to the rewards of hard work, but their own hard work, not by taking advantage of someone else's hard work.)
