Fearlessness. The timidity we have seen in Washington out of our leaders is disturbing to me and many other proud men and women of my generation. This is why I have decided to place my support behind Jim Read in his quest to replace Michele Bachmann. When the government was shutdown, Jim stepped up to the challenge. I watched him in class continually get frustrated and annoyed with the lack of courage in today’s congressional leaders. His willingness to step up to the plate, and announce his plan to fight for the 6th district when he did in October is inspirational and should be respected by all. I will stand behind Jim Read in the upcoming elections and believe he will be the one to finally stand up to the bureaucrats in Washington in order to get something done. His fearlessness and experience as a constitutional scholar is what we need to fix the broken congressional system we have put up with for far too long.
