The defense of our nation and state is critical at this juncture in history. Our rights as citizens are challenged daily and it seems our political establishment has lost its grasp on what has made America a unique nation. I wish to represent Maryland State Senate District 35 to push our state and this nation in a direction that will secure a bright future. I have studied American history, including our founding documents and the writings of most of our influential founding fathers. I understand what the words say in our Bill of Rights. I also understand the intent and the desire of our founders in defining and protecting those rights for future generations. These rights are not given to us by government, but are given by God to man directly. Government is never free to take what rights we secure and these rights are non-negotiable by any man for any reason. A quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin reflects a general sentiment among a vast majority of our founders - "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both."
I ask for support in representing you as a humble public servant and senator for Maryland State Senate District 35.
Thomas J Wilson
Candidate for Maryland’s 35th Senate District
