North Carolina’s ‘choice’ candidate for US Senate in 2014 is Mark Harris. Mark Harris represents a transfer of Ronald Reagan’s character with principles on the fiscal, social, and National Security issues.
President Ronald Reagan was a trusted leader. A ‘true leader’ must believe, live, teach, practice, and represent the character with principles as Ronald Reagan did with words:
Job creation: “And because we've opened up the economy, lowered tax rates, and restored the ideal of limited government and free enterprise -- for all these reasons, America today stands poised for even greater economic growth in the year ahead. But even as we celebrate all that we have accomplished, we must acknowledge that hanging over the future are some enormous ifs.”
Lower Taxes: “If we keep tax rates down, economic incentives will remain strong.” “Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.”
A Balanced Budget: “We don't have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven't taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much” “If we keep tax rates down, economic incentives will remain strong.”
Second Amendment: “As long as there are guns, the individual that wants a gun for a crime is going to have one and going to get it. The only person who’s going to be penalized and have difficulty is the law-abiding citizen, who then cannot have [it] if he wants protection -- the protection of a weapon in his home.”
A Military that is second to none: “How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.” One another occasion, “Trust, but verify.”
Constitutional freedoms: "If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth."
Limited Government: "I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts."
Pro-life. “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”
Welfare: "Welfare's purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence."
Faith: “We believe faith and freedom must be our guiding stars, for they show us truth, they make us brave, give us hope, and leave us wiser than we were.”
Mark Harris does equate to these Ronald Reagan values. As we appraise and discover more about Mark Harris, his life, his character, leadership, wisdoms, and his positive beliefs on the fiscal, social, and National Security issues, most North Carolinians may concur that Mark Harris for US Senate is North Carolina’s choice as another Ronald Reagan duplicate leader of tomorrow.
