Dear Friends & Fellow Citizens,
Dieter F. Uchtdorf recently reminded me that the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, but the second best time is now.
Moreover, Thomas Paine previously pointed out in "The American Crisis" that, "These are the times that tries men's souls", and this remains ever so true here and now.
Centuries ago, Janus was the ancient Roman God of beginnings, and what time is better for new beginnings than here and now? After all, the month of January is named after him, because the beginning of the year is a time for refelection and also for planning and doing.
We continue that tradition today, making personal action resolutions in January for the rest of the year.
Accordingly, with the forthcoming start of the new year and the 2019 West Virginia Legislative Session, this personal plea again comes to you, asking you to also pass this message along to others, simply because everyone's involvement is needed to help us make a difference together in the pursuit of the principles of good governance.
(By the way, thank you ever so much to those of you who made contributions to my 2018 election efforts.)
My decision to again serve in public office was because of my firm conviction and personal passion to do my best to be an independent voice on behalf of our personal liberties and responsibilities.
Especially dear to my heart are those God given rights and responsibilities promised to us by the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 10th Amendments of our Constitution, including our personal property rights.
These principles, along with the necessity for personal integrity in our elected officials, are the very keys to our individual and family prosperity.
To that end, we need and must continue to work together for a reduction in senseless spending, improvident programs, and counterproductive taxes and regulations.
Remember, we are not alone, but we must all do our part.
Working together to stay Independent,
Postscriptum: Please remember to share this plea with all of your family and other associates. Add your personal encouragement for each of them, to also pass along this call to action to even more others.
