More than any other reason, government exists to help us safeguard our loved ones. Our law enforcement families, who make sacrifices every day, represent what is best about America. We must empower parents to protect their children, knowing that the savings they work hard to accumulate will be passed to their families--not to the government. I recognize that the power to tax is the power to destroy and I realize that reckless state spending leads to unaffordable property taxes. The right of parents to control their children's health and education is also fundamental. Parents and local school board members should control P-12 education, not bureaucrats or politicians in Springfield.
