You the voter have a right to know my moral compass and where I stand on the issues. Here’s the real me: I’m a strong conservative who loves God and loves people. I am pro-family, pro-life, and pro-Second Amendment. I’m against higher taxes and increased fees. I stand with you in wanting to tear down the government’s barriers to jobs and prosperity, and remove the incompetent establishment and no-skills incumbent. You and I both know the politicians and bureaucrats don’t listen anymore; they have wildly over-promised and dramatically underperformed. I am Samuel Anderson, and I want to be your State Senator to serve you and your family. Please vote for me on June 7. Thank you.
SAYINGS THAT INSPIRE ME
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan. Proverbs 29:2
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. ~George Washington
But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us. ~Abraham Lincoln
We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. ~Abraham Lincoln
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace – but there is no peace. The war is actually begun. The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! ~Patrick Henry
