"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. "

Words To Live By
"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 Representative Peggy Scott Will Not Seek Sixth Congressional Open Seat

Today, State Representative Peggy Scott, (R-Andover) has made the following statement regarding the 2014 election.

“I would like to thank Congresswoman Bachmann for her years of dedicated service to the 6th District, the State of Minnesota, and our country. Her deep love and concern for what is best for our state and country have been the driving force behind her service.

As a result of Congresswoman Bachmann’s announcement not to seek re-election, I have received encouragement from many to run to be the next Congresswoman of the 6th District of Minnesota.  My family and I have given careful consideration to this opportunity to serve. While I am indeed flattered and thankful for words of encouragement and support, I have decided not to seek the Republican nomination for the 6th Congressional District. My family has always come first and the timing of this opportunity is just not best for us.

I am proud to represent the wonderful, hardworking people of Andover, Northern Coon Rapids, and NE Ramsey, and will continue to work on their behalf in St. Paul.”

“The 6th District is rich in qualified potential candidates for congress and I have confidence we will choose a candidate who will represent well and work on behalf of, the values of our district in Washington, D.C.”
