About Christine

I believe in the CONSERVATIVE principles and values of the Republican Party as they are written, and not how they are currently practiced by today's RINO's. Smaller government, lower taxes, more personal responsibility, states' rights, free market capitalism, and less government intrusion in our lives!

  1. Mike Causey says:

    Amen Christine! Let’s vote for the candidates who will work for all those things- smaller government, lower taxes, more personal responsibility, states’ rights, free market capitalism and less government intrusion in our lives! If candidates and elected officials will read and follow the Constitution of the United States and the Constittution of North Carolina and follow those principles we can turn this country around and get it on the right track. – Mike Causey, candidate for NC Commissioner of Insurance
