- I believe in our Constitution.
- I believe the Constitution was written to limit the tyranny of our government, not to restrict the freedom of our people.
- I believe we are guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms, and that we should not
restrict that right.
- I believe the private sector creates jobs, not the government.
- I believe government taxes too much, spends too much, and regulates too much.
- And I believe in the promise of the American Dream.
