The common path is
leadership; the influencing, for good or ill, of
oneís associates to the task of interest. Effective, and
lauded for that effect, some consider leadership to be noble.
Free people may on occasion set aside their own pursuits if the
leaderís cause is dear to them, while subjects will follow a leader
from habit or from fear. Leaders are not gods, but
men. And, they will fall prey to the sins of men.
Yet, a free people will have occasion to speak with one voice to
express their ideas, beliefs and will. That task falls not to
a leader but to a representative. Representation requires an
understanding, a meeting of the minds. Yet ideas and beliefs
are like clouds. Clear as they seem to one observer-yet there
are no definite borders that make them appear equal to all.
So, the representative is often pushed aside by the leader who is
so assured of his faith that others are swayed to believe in
him or doubt their own reason.
I do not seek to lead, nor
follow a leader. Yet the condition of our government and the
risk to our nation is such that responsible free people cannot leave
the government in the hands of those that have stolen it from us and
seek now to steal everything for all time. So I stand ready
to assume the task of returning control of the government to the
people. By speaking with the voice of the people, unfettered
and clear, Nevada Can again pen the hogs in government and chasten them
to our bidding, instead of we to theirs.
So if you feel the truth I speak, lend me your vote, and for a time
your voice WILL be heard. We may differ on the boundaries,
but on the substance, we are kin. If the fruits of our labors
are success, then we may return to our various pursuits knowing that we
have shouldered the burden of vigilance and action as required of all
