3. State Party Image and Focus
4. My personal support of state rep. and other (non-Governor) candidates in 2008, 2010, and TODAY!:
Please give examples of what you have done:
In the last few years I have worked tirelessly across this state for candidates like Scott Brown, Peter Durant,Mary Z. Connaughton and Keiko Orrall. I have attended 3 different campaign school tutorials as well. I am an avid Tea Party activist. I attend City Council meetings and give reports on issues such as Agenda 21 to elected representatives. I have also attended many debates and forums that included Senators like Jim Demint and Congressmen like Steve King. I have travelled to Washington D.C. and took part in marches on the Capitol such as that of the 9/12 event. I have also worked for candidates out of state such as Joe Miller in Alaska, and Marco Rubio in Florida via phone bank sent to me by email from Freedomworks. I have done nothing but absorb information and have used my education and experience towards fighting for conservative values and helping those that run under the mantra of conservatism to win elections. If elected to Republican State Committee it will be my duty and mission and life to continue this fight and revitalize and envigor the MASS GOP towards conservative ends with no tunnel vision for only certain races, but all races where we can make a positive conservative impact to help end one party rule in Massachusetts once and for all.

America By Heart, Sarah Palin. The Overton Window, Glenn Beck
Your favorite US President of all time, and why:
I hope it's not cliche to say George Washington would have to be my choice for best President of all time because he set the bar. At the time of his departure, that he freely chose to do as he could have been President to the day he died, the rest of the world was dominated by Kings, Queens, Sultans or despots and here is the measure of a man who chose to go home to his farm after two terms. The likes of that kind of character and measure of a man is awe inspiring to me, personally. May he rest in peace.
Your favorite US President of the 20th Century, and why:
Hands down, Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th President of the United States was my favorite President of the United States for many varied reasons. I consider him a re-founder of America. His articulation of conservatism, his ability to restore pride in American excellence, and the largest peace time expansion of our economy are trademarks of his historic tenure as Commander-In-Chief. His humor, his demeanor, his candor were par excellence. He single handedly defeated communism by winning the Cold War and the only answer to his question, "Are you better off than you were eight years ago?" is a resounding yes and I wish we had the likes of Ronald Reagan today to run him, or her, in 2012.
Your LEAST favorite US President of the 20th Century, and why:
Too easy, William Jefferson Clinton was my least favorite of the 20th. Old Billy Boy "comeback kid" came into office under the false pretense of being a middle of the road "moderate" Democrat but the only time he ever was middle of the road was when he actually walked up the middle of a road. He came into office and instituted the first ever in American history retro tax which ushered in a recession of the early to mid 1990's. He then appointed his wife to handle health care overhaul measures that drastically failed. His 2nd term was marred by scandal as he committed adultry becoming the first ever elected President to be impeached and while the Republican Congress balanced the budget and provided a surplus the "comeback kid" was on trial re-defining the word "is". Reprehensible. To add insult to injury he vacated the highest office of the land with 11th hour pardons for people like his brother, Roger, and absconded with White House furniture on his way out the door. Moreover, he is still the recipient of the largest book advance in American history because publishers knew that the story of a President who received fellacio from a White House intern would be a huge seller in the demoralized (due to liberalism and liberals like him) United States of America. With every fiber of my being I wish he was never a President of these states united.
When was the last time you shot a firearm?

I believe in less government for more freedom. I believe in less taxes for more money for individuals, families and businesses. I believe in American excellence which has changed this nation and the world for the better by making life easier. I believe in traditional family as the corner stone of American excellence. I believe in a strong national defense for safety of the free world. I believe in God. I believe in the U.S. Constitution as being the best document ever written defining how people should govern people. I believe in states rights over a massive expansion of federal government. I am pro-life and believe that life begins at the instant of conception. Abortion to me is murder.
I am running because
I am running because I have worked with the incumbent who holds the seat now and I respectfully disagree with how he uses violent rhetoric against fellow Republicans and because he holds this opinion, and I quote, "we don't advance conservatism until we defend the consequences of liberal thinking." To me, the consequences of liberal thinking lead to higher taxes, fewer jobs, Godlessness, murderous abortion and Massachusetts being at a dismal 11% Republican enrollment which perpetuates one party Democrat rule in the Commonwealth. I believe we can do better. I believe we can win the Massachusetts State House and many local elections to make the ratio 3:1 in favor of Republican rather than the other way around. With incumbents like my opponent believing in "the defense of liberal thinking consequences" this will never happen. Defense of conservative thinking consequences will make it happen and I am running to make that my mission in life.
The biggest change I will bring to the office is
Energy will be the biggest change I bring to the MASS GOP as the new State Committeeman from the 2nd Middlesex District.
Energy to revitalize the party and make conservatism stronger.
Energy to knock on doors each weekend to bring more people into the party and grow our base.
Energy in challenging my Democrat counter part to debates at secondary schools and institutions of higher education to undo years of liberal/progressive indoctrination.
Energy towards speaking up and out at City/Town Hall meetings and at State House meetings.
Energy towards writing letter to editors and blogs to counter liberal philosophies.
Energy towards calling in to talk radio programs to do the same. And, most importantly, energy towards recruiting candidates to run for local, state and federal offices to end one party Democrat rule in the Bay State.
