A number of newspapers have agreed to publish an Op-ed by Congressman Wexler about why we need these hearings.
Hear Rep Wexler in his own words.
"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself."
- Thomas Paine
I think that cutting taxes without cutting spending is reckless and foolish.
I believe that conservative "borrow and spend" economic policies are suicidal.
I believe that true freedom of religion means allowing people to worship any god they choose and no god if they so choose. I believe that if the government were to give any one religion favor over others it sets a precedent that is dangerous to all religious liberty.
I believe in the power of diplomacy.
I believe that war is a last resort.
I believe that the key to winning the fight against radical Islam is to liberalize their society. We need to give them jobs not guns. We need to put them to work rebuilding their countries. We need to win their hearts and minds and we will never do that with bombs and bullets.
I believe we are a nation of laws, not men.
