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 2014 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 already have made contributions to my 2014 re-election efforts.)
And so again and simply put: After earlier being persuaded to be a candidate for re-election as a Delegate in the West Virginia Legislature in 2014, a Primary election opponent since then has pre-filed to oppose my re-election nomination.
My decision to be a candidate for re-election was made 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.
Accordingly, donations to my re-election campaign are needed now from you and other like-minded fellow citizens; who believe in these same principles of individual liberty as well as in our own personal accountability and empowerment.
Simply put once more: Will you help?
Please join our Mountaineer League of Extraordinary Citizens, by sending a personal check of $250 or more (or anything else that you can afford) to :

Working together to stay Independent,
Postscriptum: Please remember to help by sharing this plea with all of your family and other associates. Add your personal encouragement for each of them to make their own contributions. AND ask them also to pass along this call to action to even more others.
Notice: Cash contributions will not be accepted. West Virginia law does not allow contributions from West Virginia public employees (but this prohibition does not include members of their families). This law also requires that all contributions over $250 must include your postal mailing address, occupation, and the name of your employer. No Primary election contributions over $1,000 per person may be accepted.
