I think my dad has helped me tremendously.
I don’t think I’m really open to having Washington change me.
Do we fear terrorism so much that we throw out our Constitution and are we unwilling and afraid to debate our Constitution?
I’ve had an interest in politics since I was a little kid.
You don’t go into politics unless you want to win.
I tell people I won’t vote to go to war unless I’m ready to go or send my kids.
I would have voted ‘no’ on the Iraq war and ‘yes’ to Afghanistan.
The main thing I say on war is that we need to obey the law and formally declare war.
Giving someone a one-time stimulus check or a one-time tax cut that expires doesn’t allow the predictability that business needs.
The Republican platform specifically says we don’t believe in bailing out private business and yet we did.
For most of our history no one dared to tell Americans ‘you don’t build that.’
The great and abiding lesson of American history particularly the cold war is that the engine of capitalism the individual is mightier than any collective.
Does the owner of the restaurant own his restaurant? Or does the government own his restaurant?

I think if you have a two-story office and you hire someone who’s handicapped it might be reasonable to let him have an office on the first floor rather than the government saying you have to have a $100,000 elevator.
We don’t need bigger government. We need to shrink the size of government.
We should not have the U.S. government buying stock in American industries – the financial industry or any other industry.
You can’t have it both ways. You can’t tell me that you’re taxed enough already and that you want constitutional government and then in the next breath say ‘Bring me home some bacon.’ The pig has been picked clean.
You know when Republicans were in charge we doubled the debt. But now our concern is the Democrats are in charge and they’re tripling the debt. So really our concern is that we want smaller government.
American inventiveness and the desire to build developed because we were guaranteed the right to own our success.
In America as opposed to the old country success was based on merit.
A free society will abide unofficial private discrimination even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on the color of their skin.
I believe we should work to end all racism in American society and staunchly defend the inherent rights of every person.
