GET OUT AND
We Americans say that the Constitution made the nation. Well, the Constitution is a great document and we never would have been a nation without it, but it took more than that to make the nation. Rather, it was our forefathers and foremothers, who made the Constitution and then made it work. The government they constructed did get great things out of them, but it was not the government primarily that put the great things into them. What put the great things into them was their home life, their religion, their sense of personal responsibility to Almighty God, their devotion to education, their love of liberty, their personal character.”
-Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D.“

I fear for the safety of our country more than I enjoy my retirement! I fear for the world my children and grandchildren are inheriting more than I like tinkering with my old ford, helping with little projects at church, around the neighborhood and having coffee with the guys! It is especially fun to visit friends, family and attend grandchildren’s games!
To run for United States Senator is a decision that has taken several months and much prayer to make. I finally realized being a politician is not a sin, it is only a sin when we ignore God’s will in our decision making. At one point I decided not to run, but I kept getting subtle messages through sermons, the news and bible studies.
Washington, D.C. is a corrupt mess! The only way to fix it is to elect new people of integrity who will keep their promises! I love my country more than I enjoy retirement. It will be an honor to serve Oregon and the United States of America as your U.S. Senator!
Please exercise your legal right to vote!
