Government & Business

- Excerpt:"Ed Emery will serve you by standing for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” voting by principle, rather than circumstance. He will work with others who are like-minded to restore government that facilitates rather than opposes individual character, initiative, and innovation."
Jobs & Prosperity

Sanctity of Life
