Amendment 4 on the Statewide Ballot for November 2nd

I respect Senator Scott Beason above everyone at the Alabama State House.
As a true fiscal conservative (if you doubt that, ask my husband, I am very conservative with finances), I agree with Senator Beason on almost all fiscal matters.
Read amendment 4 and decide if you will vote on this amendment affecting Blount County.

Side Note: I do wish Senator Beason was running for Governor. I would be able to vote in that race.

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
