WHAT CAN THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR DO TO ATTRACT MORE JOBS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO MISSOURI?

I will highlight the true gems of our state, which are a great workforce with a vigorous work ethic, two spectacular rivers which provide excellent transportation and energy generation capabilities. We can attract more economic development by treating businesses with the respect they deserve, less regulation and taxation. I earned the Friend of "Agriculture Award" for my ability to understand business dynamics and won the constitutional legislator award for understanding the proper role of government.

THE CURRENT LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR HAS MADE CLEAR HIS PERSONAL OPPOSITION TO HEALTH CARE REFORM. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE LAW?

I was the legislator who filed the original "Health Care Freedom" bill to protect our citizens from being forced to participate in Obamacare. It is unconstitutional to force citizens to spend their money to support a private, for-profit industry. As your Lt. Gov., you can be confident I will continue fighting to protect our citizens from all unconstitutional laws and will hold the other political parties whenever they side with big money over the taxpayers.

HOW CAN THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR BEST SERVE THE STATE OF MISSOURI?

I will raise the iron shade and let the sun shine in on the back room deals. I write a weekly newsletter chronicling the happenings of our state government. Communication has always been my hallmark. I will proactively engage in legislative debates and will help the other legislators study the bills so that we can unveil unconstitutional components before they come to a vote. Missouri deserves a Lt. Gov. who has integrity and is constitutional.

CLOSING REMARKS:

Politics has become a dirty business, but it won't get better if we abandon the process. We owe it to ourselves to fight for fiscal conservatism and constitutionally limited government as well as expecting moral conduct from our leaders. As the only "Missouri Right to Life" endorsed candidate, my record shows I am a champion Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Family and Pro-Taxpayer advocate. I will hold them all accountable and give voters a genuine choice.
