Been a member of Free Republic since 2000 but for some reason my join date says March 2004.

I would describe myself as a Reagan, fiscal conservative that leans towards social conservativism on many issues. I believe the federal government has one primary mission: protection of the citizens of the United States from enemies both foreign and domestic. The welfare state created in the 1960’s has severly crippled America and needs major reform if we are to survive as a nation. At the state level is where responsibility falls for the development of healthy and safe communities. Areas that I’m passionate about are taxes, immigration, the war on terror, education (school choice), economic development, roads/bridges and criminal justice. Beyond that the federal government needs to get out of our way.
