Self Defense

"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." -James Madison, The Federalist Papers

Self defense

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Protecting Liberties

"The fundamental conflicts in human life are not between competing ideas - one of which is true and the other false, but rather, between those that hold power and use it to oppress others, and those who are oppressed by power and seek to free themselves of it. - Thomas Szasz"

Guarding life, liberty, and property.

"No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session." -Mark Twain (1866)

“I fully support Mark’s candidacy and look forward to serving beside him in the legislature next year.”

“Mark treats his real estate customers with respect. He deals with contractors professionally and fairly. Good luck in your race; you’ve got my vote!”
