He said, "I am disgusted when I see the government waste our money and abuse our trust. There are common sense solutions from among the citizens that are more likely to succeed than anything big government or 'career politicians' can offer. I believe that the bedrock tenets of liberty, freedom, and a government of the people, by the people, and for the people are as fresh and invigorating today as they were at the birth of this great Republic.... I believe in the limitless ingenuity of the American spirit. I believe in the unlimited power of individual initiative and creativity. I believe that every single one of us makes better decisions for ourselves and for our families than a government of 'an elite few in a distant city.'"
