Since word broke that I might be interested in running for the U.S. House of Representatives, I’ve been asked numerous times, “why now” and “why the House?”
As someone who has taught U.S. History for over 20 years, I appreciate the enormity of serving in the world’s greatest representative body. It is my opinion, that our liberty, the liberty that exists because of the blood and treasure of our forefathers and ancestors, is in great peril, and it is being threatened by those who favor the failed economic system known as socialism.
Socialism is antithetical to every one of our founding principles. Principles that have made us the envy of the world for over 230 years and the destination of generations of people looking for the freedoms that were consistently denied them by royalty, authoritarians, dictators, and terrorists.
