Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I have owned a small business and employed people. Throughout the years I have actually worked for a living in sales, industrial machinery maintenance, and in the computer industry. Everything I own is paid for. I put my kids through school with no debt. I don't believe that compromise ever made a good idea any better and that the Quid Pro Quo helped destroy Rome.
