I'm supporting Chris Kapenga for this seat because we need a hard-nosed fiscal conservative now more than ever. The other candidates say all the right things, but (in-my-view) lack the tools and experience needed to be as effective as Mr. Kapenga.
If only we could replace more of the state legislature with accountants, rather than the tax and spenders which have so crippled our state. I liked something I found on Kapenga's website which I repeat below:
By William J. H. Boetcker
•You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
•You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
•You cannot help little men by tearing down the big men.
•You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
•You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
•You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
•You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
•You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
•You cannot build character and courage by destroying men's initiative and independence.
•And you cannot help men by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.
