What kind of people should we be electing to public office? No one should be able to hold a public office until they understand the Constitution the way the Founding Fathers wrote it.

Samuel Adams said, “On the people therefore of the United States, it depends whether wise men or fools, good or bad men shall govern.” Samuel Adams also said, “Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote, that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual—or at least that he ought not to do so; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to god and his country.”

Abraham Lincoln: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves, and under a just God cannot long retain it for themselves.”

When will the American people learn it is by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men as soon as they get a little authority as they suppose they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion with regulation, fees, a thousand-dollar fine if a market gives someone a plastic grocery bag. Every person should clearly understand this fundamental fact about government. The only reason we ever adopt a law is to compel those people to obey it who would not do so unless threatened with a loss of life, liberty, or property.

Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom. Debbie Arnold will hold government accountable. She stands for your freedom.
