Our country was founded with the idea of common sense. Scott has made common sense a cornerstone of his campaign. He has derided Richmond for putting to many obstacles in the way of businesses. Regulations cost money. The Small business Administration has written a study on the impact of litigation on small businesses. You can read it here. Scott's goal is to minimize the barriers to business growth, and to protect the consumer.

I'm a little bit confused by this post Phil.

"The Small business Administration has written a study on the impact of litigation on small businesses."

I read the study you're referencing and I couldn't agree more. The study talks about the negative effect lawsuits have on the growth of small business.

My confusion comes from the fact that your candidate, Scott Sayre, has made a name for himself by suing everyone he thinks he can make a dime off of. From former employees to members of his own family, Sayre isn't bashful about suing anyone. Even now Sayre has a pending lawsuit on the books. (It's all public record, check it out)

The problem with Sayre's addiction to lawsuits doesn't merely affect the people and businesses he sues. Every time Scott Sayre shows up in court, we the taxpayers bear much of the cost. We pay for lawsuits in the form of court costs, higher insurance costs, and an increase in the cost of goods and services.

Sayre talks a pretty good game about wanting to eliminate wasteful spending and lower the constituent tax burden. If this is actually true, I would first encourage Scott to reevaluate is own business practices.

Scott cries until the cows come home about being anti-tax and that he signed Grover Norquist's pledge. I have to wonder though how this affects his own personal business, considering much of the money Sayre Enterprises makes is from federal government contracts (taxes).

I see a recurring theme here. Scott Sayre's campaign financier Walter Curt also made a fortune ($75 million) off of other people's tax dollars. You see, taxes are great when folks like Scott Sayre and Walter Curt are making money hand over fist. When it comes time for them to buck up and pay their share however...well...that's when the song changes.

I desire a little more honest consistency in my representative. That's why I support Emmett Hanger as my senator.
