Remember dad’s lectures, “As long as you live under my roof, you’ll live under my rules.” With 60% of Americans receiving more than they pay to the government, they’re dependent. They’re under government’s roof and subject to their rules. What don’t liberals want to control? They’re regulating everything from peanut butter to light bulbs and from fast food to carbon footprints. Is that the America you want to live in? If you want freedom, vote conservative. If you want a regulated nanny state, vote liberal.

Had enough of high taxes? Mark Twain said, “The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.” The new healthcare plan authorizes hiring 18,000 new IRS taxidermists to take more of your money. Vote for conservatives committed to keeping all taxes as low as possible and letting you spend more of your own hard-earned money.

Finally, don’t vote for any candidate who believes that America’s better days are over—global warming’s coming, more austerity and high unemployment for the foreseeable future, and future generations living at a lower standard of living than their parents.

Democrats say that Republicans have no answers. Their answer is YOU! Reagan came into office at a time of malaise and freed up American workers, investors and entrepreneurs to invent a better future and keep more of the rewards they deserved for doing so. We are America, and we are not done!

With the right incentives and policies, Americans can again lead the way in inventing the future. It won’t be immediate, but it will come. Incentives and our free enterprise American Dream still work. Let it do so again by voting for the most conservative candidates available.
