Getting your taxes' worth?

With April 15 - Tax Day - just around the corner, it is worth asking the question: are you getting what you pay for when it comes to government? If what you want is more debt, more government control, and less freedom, the answer is yes.

If however you believe in Individual Rights, Free Markets, and Limited Government – as most Americans do – then it's time to start afresh. Recent polls have shown satisfaction with our politicians in Congress at an all-time low; the time for revolt at the ballot box is now.

You see, Congressman Jeff Miller has, time and again, publicly denounced the President and then turned around and handed vastly more authority and more control to him - in the form of trillions of dollars in debt ceiling increases and dangerous new powers like the NDAA and Patriot Act extensions - at your expense. America and its Constitution cannot afford this sort of political demolition any longer.

That's why I want to represent Florida's First District in Congress. It is time for a return to ideals of public servitude and statesmanship, instead of concentrated government control and coercion. It is time to restore the Constitution. It is time to restore the Republic.

But I can't do it without your help. My fellow citizens here in the Panhandle must be a beacon of hope, not only for the rest of Florida, but also for America. We must show that our current out-of-control government will not be tolerated any longer.  We must show that we are ready for a new direction, one of restraint, principle, and individual sovereignty.

Imagine if Congress had a different outlook. “Satisfaction Guaranteed... or Your Tax Money Back!” Of course, this sort of attitude will never be taken seriously by our current crop of politicians – which is why they must all be voted out, including Congressman Miller.

Let's restore our federal government to one of, by, and for We the People. This year, let's vote in civil servants who have their priorities straight: obey the Constitution and protect the rights (and wallets) of all citizens. That's how it was supposed to be all along.
