"Sic Semper Tyrannis"

Republicans and Democrats have brought us to the #1 legal Suicide State of the World. Partial-birth killing goes unchecked, and paid for by your tax-monies. Indebtedness and money laundering grows a bigger government out of control. Republicans and Democrats have become one unified conglomerate that threatens the private sector. Abortion has been swept under the rug with incrementalism the rule of the day (kill less amounts).

So that you can better understand my philosophy and reasons for running, let me say that the state motto of Virginia is my favorite amongst all the States. The Dominion State of Virginia leads the fight against Tyranny. I believe we are in a similar state today, i.e., a state of tyranny; Ergo: "Sic Semper Tyrannis"…

Although I may be a "Vox Desierto" and very independent in my thinking, I believe what is needed is a moral politic; a return to the instructions laid down by our Constitution; Some amendments need to be abolished; Many laws here in Oregon need the same. A voice crying in the Salem-Senate may be heard. Could make a difference. I want to be that voice. I want to return to moral standards based on God, not man.
