"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Mike Pence: America Wants You

Of all the candidates we keep hearing about with the media pushing them -- Romney, Huckabee, Palin, and Newt -- none of them come close to Mike Pence (pictured above) in our book. Are members of the mainstream media pushing those four so hard because they know they would have a hard time beating Obama? It is not going to be easy to beat Obama, but we believe a man who is a Conservative Champion Mike Pence from Indiana, part of the Heartland of America, gives us the best chance and would make an outstanding President.

Little known fact on Mike Pence is in his teenage years he worked for Democrats but then heard Ronald Reagan and decided the GOP was the way for him. We are extremely happy he made that decision. Know a lot of people who did the same thing. Our Republican Party is better today because of those people who followed the lead of Ronald Reagan and became Republicans!

If you are looking for a candidate with energy and who brings a positive outlook to the scene, it is Mike Pence. His speeches bring you to your feet with optimism on how to make things better in America and get this Country back on the right track after the drift toward socialism we have been experience.  You see an energy level you don't see in many candidates when they speak because when Mike Pence speaks, he speaks from the heart.  You will never have a harder worker than Mike Pence as President.

Some have said he doesn't have executive experience and comes from the House. My reply is that he was head of his fraternity which gives more experience as an executive than other job. Try getting fraternity members all on the same page -- judging by my son's experience as President of his fraternity, it is not an easy task. Pence had his own law firm and was also a talk show host before joining the House. The last two years, he was the head of the Republican Caucus which is some ways is like being President of a fraternity and just as difficult to get them all on the same page.

What I remember most from speeches by Mike Pence is his comment that he is a Christian, Conservative, and Republican in that order. We support him because he is not an 'in your face' type of person, but stands on principle and some things are non-negotiable like being pro-life but also is able to reach out to various groups and doesn't throw someone under the bus because they don't agree with him 100%!

Now ABC News has picked up on this effort to encourage Mike Pence to run:

Less than two weeks before Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., is expected to make an announcement about his political future, conservative leaders are urging him to jump into the 2012 presidential race.
"Seize this moment, Mike," Ryun, along with conservative leaders L. Brent Bozell, Dick Armey and Morton Blackwell, wrote in a letter they sent to Pence on Thursday. "Now is the time for you, as one of this generation's leaders, to take your rightful place in the pantheon of American leadership, to cast aside personal considerations, and defend this God-blessed nation that has given us, and the world, so much."
We think Mike Pence is what this Country needs as President. He would win over voters who are not sure who he is if they listen to him speak or watch him in a debate. He is smart, articulate, and speaks from the heart which we think are character traits necessary in a President. When you hear Pence speak, you know he is not going to waffle, put his finger in the wind to see which way it is blowing or do flip flops like candidates in the past and some office holders have done -- what you see is what you get with Mike Pence.

We support this effort 100% and sincerely hope that Mike Pence is hearing the voices of concerned conservatives who are looking for someone they can get behind and who can reach out to all voters without snarkiness, negativity, or in your face. He has a sense of humor and doesn't take himself too seriously when he gives speeches. There are two members of the House who can say more in their one minute speeches then most can say in five minutes -- Mike Pence of Indiana and Steve King of Iowa who also happen to be good friends.

We believe that in 2012, our Republican candidate needs to come from the Heartland of America where a love of America is instilled at a young age, where we still value what is great about America and believe her best days are still ahead, have been blessed to be born in such a wonderful Country, and it is our obligation to help make things better in America with hard work and sacrifice.

We need to get that Spirit of America back to the White House and cannot think of a better person to do just that than Mike Pence, who comes from Indiana and is a member of the People's House.
