I want to run for United States Senator. I might even run for congress. All the things that you want I’m for. I’m for balanced budgets, better farm bill, and lower taxes. Don’t think I’m not serious. I have political experience. I was on the Greeleyville Town council twice. I am a father, husband, churchgoer and all the other things that people mention in their campaigns that don’t seem to matter.
Abortion, immigration, gun control, regulatory relief, nuclear proliferation, I have heard of all those things.
The only thing I’m not for is term limits. Don’t be mad with me.… Read the rest
