Stillings for congress vs Bart Stupak

IT'S TIME FOR BART TO GO!: Lets beat Stupak with Tom Stillings, a true conservative.
Become a fan and share with friends

My Name is Tom Stillings. I am a candidate for U.S. Congress from the First District of Michigan. Like most of my fellow citizens I have found it easy to sit back, and let others determine the policies of our nation. As long as America was being run like America there was no need to disturb my happy life.
Those days of complacency have passed. I see America being changed in very disturbing fashion. I see the overthrow of dearly held American values. I see disdain for that which is traditionally American.
Our leaders have lost sight of the values and principles that made America the greatest society on Earth. In their rush to false Utopia they would topple the very foundation upon which this nation stands.
From the foolish expenditure of money that we don’t have, that even our grandchildren will be unable to repay, to the travesty of abortion, to the denial and deceitful re-definition of our basic liberties including our fundamental rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of our own happiness, I have had enough. I am offering my candidacy in the hope that others who believe as I do will allow me the privilege of speaking for them.
I believe in the sanctity of human life, and that the rights of the unborn must be protected.
I believe in our form of government, which is a constitutionally limited republic. The federal government must confine itself to those functions delegated to it under the constitution.
I believe in our constitution as originally conceived and amended, including the 2nd, 9th, and 10th amendments which so many seem to have either forgotten or would ignore.
I believe that national defense is the most important responsibility of the federal government. It is the one area where spending is imperative. Without a strong defense all else is lost.
I believe that we must control spending so that we may eventually pay down our debt.
As to the more pressing issues of the day:
Our health care delivery system can best be improved by taking steps that reduce actual costs. A government takeover will result in less care at greater cost. We need a real solution based on American values and the preservation of what I believe to be the best health care in the world.
I am in favor of immigration. It is anything illegal, as in “illegal immigration” that I totally oppose.
TARP, Bailouts, and deficit spending are landmarks along the road to financial demise. We must learn to spend only what we have available, and then only when necessary. “All of the above” is never a valid choice in the selection of government spending priorities.
If you believe as I do, please honor me with your support in this endeavor. I faithfully promise that your voice will be heard, and that I will do all that is possible to put our nation back on its proper course.
Thank you.
Tom Stillings
