"Finally the group hopes to provide discussion on the Biblical parameters within whose boundaries we must operate as it relates to organizing, voting, promoting, and if needed possibly even resistance."


Religion has had a tremendous impact on my political philosophy. While many people now try to dismiss it, the fact remains that this nation was founded upon Christian principles. Using the Bible as a guide for political activism is not at odds with the constitution, and in fact, I would encourage it. I support people getting involved in groups such as the one you mention.

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." --John Adams

I am proud to be a member of the John Birch Society. The JBS is primarily an educational organization, but it also calls its members to action in an organized effort to combat the enemies of freedom. Members of the JBS have done an immeasurable amount of good in the cause of liberty. The mission statement of the JBS is "To bring about less government, more responsibility, and — with God’s help — a better world by providing leadership, education, and organized volunteer action in accordance with moral and Constitutional principles." I would encourage you to look into the organization for yourself:

John McGee represents politics as usual. He has proven himself to be an establishment player and a career politician. He has voted for higher taxes, as well as more licensing and regulations that burden individual citizens and businesses.

I will be a completely different kind of senator. I will challenge the status quo, not seek for popularity. I will not vote for increases in taxes or fees. I will seek to reduce spending. I will seek to repeal burdensome rules and regulations, not add to them. I will stand on principles of freedom and liberty.
