Michigan Rep. Thaddeus McCotter delcared his candidacy for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination yesterday. Here are a few excerpts from his speech:

"What we need in Washington is someone who knows the future is not big government...it is self government."

"The United States will remain a beacon of liberty."

"Our security is from strength not appeasement or surrender."

"Our prosperity is from the private sector not the public sector."

Can't diasgree with that.
