Alabama gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne In Favor of I&R in Alabama

BREAKING NEWS
 
Alabama gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne has come out in favor of Initiative and Referendum for Alabama.
 
What follows is a copy of a portion of the "ISSUES" page of his campaign website under the heading of "Constitutional Reform":
...............................................................................................................................................
 
"On a related matter, while the only process now available to Alabama citizens for amending our constitution is to vote on constitutional amendments first approved by the Alabama Legislature, I would additionally support the adoption of an Initiative and Referendum process, with the appropriate prerequisites.  I believe a well-conceived process for citizen-led initiatives in Alabama has the potential to 1) help Alabama government escape the paralyzing stronghold of influential political power brokers and special interests; 2) increase voter interest and participation in the process; and 3) help the people of Alabama gain more trust and confidence in their government."

About DD for Liberty

We render unto Caesar, but we write Caesar's laws.
We should write and uphold laws that go no further than protecting your God given right to life, liberty and property, the pursuit of happiness.
I am a wife and mother that wants the best for her family. The best as I see it is for Government to get out of the way.
God is our protector and has equipped us with all the faculties and means necessary for a productive and free life and I need no man to tell my family what is best for them.
I am a Patriot and Libertarian.
I am a fan of the greatest Peacemaker Jesus.
Taxation is theft.
If you seek security over liberty you deserve neither.
My favorite quote:

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”~Samuel Adams
