General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

Welcome to my web site. You only need to turn on the news to realize the difficulties our nation faces. With soaring gasoline prices, families losing their homes, rising anti-American violence around the world, violence in our schools, in our neighborhoods, the importance of this election cannot be understated.

Liberal Democrats are closer than ever to wrecking our economy, destroying traditional family values and shredding our liberties.

Republicans need only two seats to win back the majority in the U.S. Senate.

This year, we are guaranteed that an extreme liberal Democrat will be running for President. I believe West Virginia Republicans and Democrats alike will be electing a Republican for President, just like they did in 2000 and 2004.
