  Reason for Seeking this Office:

    I feel that God is leading me to seek this office:

    I have been teaching a class on the Constitution and I realize why our Country's founders emphasized that we should protect our Constitution, and maintain an obedient spirit in reflecting our gratitude to God for our country.

    George Washington said, "It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor."
    George Washington's statement was a reflection of 2nd Chronicles 7:14
     "...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray  and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways , then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

    Ronald Reagan understood this when he said, "If we forget that we are One Nation Under God , then we will be a nation gone under.
    I am convinced that our country must acknowledge the providence of almighty God.
    I am also convinced that the Constitution must be defended against all enemies be they foreign or domestic and to do that we must STUDY the Constitution not just read it.

    Our first chief Justice, John Jay one of the authors of the Federalist Papers said, "Every member of the State ought to diligently read and study the Constitution...and teach the rising generation to be free. By knowing their rights, they will sooner perceive when they are violated and be the better prepared to defend and assert them."


    If ,"you the people", choose to elect me to this office, I will go to Congress with the Bible in one hand and the Constitution in the other because Rom. 13.. command us to obey the Law of the Land and our Law under our Republic is the Constitution .
