"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)

CD6 Race: Pederson Out

Republican State Sen. John Pederson has announced he is withdrawing from the CD6 race.

Via email:

I have decided to end my candidacy for U.S. Congress.

This decision weighed heavily on me and my family, and was made after much reflection and consideration. The priorities in my life have always been my faith, family and friends, my co-workers, and the wider community. It has become apparent to me that I cannot continue this campaign and still balance my other priorities in life. Because of this conflict I have decided to withdraw my name from the race.

I would like to thank you for your unwavering support of my campaign. This decision is a personal choice, and is in no way a reflection upon the countless contributors and volunteers who have helped me these past six months.

I assure you that I will continue to serve Senate District 14 in Minnesota’s state legislature. My congressional campaign’s focus has always been about uniting all citizens to put our country on a path to prosperity. Our message of the merits of hard work and fiscal responsibility is one I believe still resonates with the majority of Minnesotans, and I promise to continue working for those values in state office.

Thank you for your steadfast support. Your help has been an inspiration to me and my family. I wish you good health and many blessings as we welcome in the New Year.
