"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

State Senator Michelle Benson announces she will not run for Congress in 2014


(Ham Lake, MN) – Today State Senator Michelle Benson (R-Ham Lake) released the following statement regarding the open seat in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District:


“I’m honored to serve in the Minnesota State Senate representing Anoka, Isanti, and Sherburne Counties.  Serving in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District would also be a great honor as our country faces many challenges and opportunities.


Although my desire to serve our nation is strong, right now my family, particularly my young children, needs me in Minnesota and not in Washington, D.C.  After thoughtful consideration for the needs of my family, I have decided that I will not be a candidate for Congress in 2014.


I want to thank the many people who have encouraged me to run for higher office. Their support reinforces my commitment to serve.

The 6th Congressional District is home to many committed and qualified Republican candidates and I have no doubt the District will continue to have Republican representation in Washington, D.C.”
