To my fellow Iowans:
our nation's founding principles in jeopardy of extinction, elections
at all levels of government are increasingly more imperative to the
survival of our Republic; none more visible and important than that of
the office of President of the United States.
one Republican Presidential candidate has provided a detailed plan of
how he proposes to make major Federal Government spending cuts, $1
Trillion in his first year as President.
one Republican Presidential candidate has presented logical plans to
address important issues to my family, my neighbors, and myself; such
issues as national security, illegal immigration, life, monetary
policy, foreign policy, debt, and ending overseas nation building.
Only one Republican Presidential candidate has been honest and
consistent in his positions for 30+ years.
one Republican Presidential candidate continues to fight

United States Constitution.
Only one Republican
Presidential candidate unconditionally supports our troops by promising
to immediately bring them home to their families where they belong.

Vice Chair of the Franklin County Republican Central Committee, and as
the Mayor-Elect of the City of Hampton, Iowa that I officially announce
my endorsement of the Champion of the Constitution, Texas Congressman,
Dr. Ron Paul for President in 2012. Please join me at the January 3rd
Iowa Caucus and vote to Restore America Now with a vote for Ron Paul…
