Dear Editor,

     James Madison said in the Federalist Papers #45- "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the state government are numerous and indefinite."

This is vastly opposite of what we have today with party control of and corporate influence in all levels of our government.

     Tragically, too many elected officials are violating our civil liberties under the guise of representing and protecting us. Those especially elected that claim to be Christian should know all power belongs to God (Psa. 62:11)  As the Apostle Paul says in II Corr. 3:17 "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."  True faith will insist on liberty!

     The Lord said, "Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them."  Because true followers are doers of the Word, not just sayers. For those in government, the fruit that we shall know them by is called a voting record, especially for anyone that claims to be fighting for our liberties.

     An excellent source to view the Congressional voting record is   The group 'Liberty for All'  scores Congress'  votes on civil liberties, non-intervention, personal freedom, government spending, and monetary policy.  They also give a description of each bill and how each member of Congress voted.

     Here in 4th District, U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler scored only 34%!  She has earned this score by her continual voting on corporate welfare, crony spending to the military-industrial complex, and tax subsidies to the rich.  Hartzler is also voting away our God-given freedoms that belong to 'we the people' by transferring them over to the control of federal government agencies i.e- NSA spying, NDAA- indefinite detention, to name of few.

     There is so much damage that has been done it would behoove you to visit the site above, and hold it up to the light of liberty for yourself. Even Congressman Cleaver in the 5th District has a higher score for liberty with 42% against her 34%. 

I believe there is a candidate in 4th District running on the Republican ticket that won't surrender our God-given freedoms to the god of money.  His name is John Webb and please visit him at because we need a change.

     4th District, we can't serve two masters.  Choose this August 5th Primary who you're going to serve.
