“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by the gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation.”
President James Madison (1751-1836) speech, Virginia Convention, 1788
While the river of Government stays within its proper banks, it can encourage life and growth. Our government, however, is at dangerous flood stage – destroying the very freedoms it was created to protect. Kurt Bahr will defend our liberties in the House as he defended our country in the military – staunching the flow of government dominance before we have little left that resembles the freedoms our Founders risked everything to build.
A few of the specific freedoms Kurt will fight for include the following:
- The freedom to raise one’s own children as one sees fit, including choosing the method of their education.
- The freedom to make one’s own health care choices and not have treatment – or lack thereof – dictated by government bureaucracy.
- The freedom to create and run one’s own business free from excessive taxation or oppressive regulation.
- The freedom to own and properly use firearms without undue restriction.
As your state representative, Kurt will keep your individual liberty first and foremost in his agenda.
“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”
