Clifton says, "I believe patriots of all political parties whether (R), (D), or (I), did not sign on for fundamental transformation of the United States. I am shocked and well beyond concerned with the direction our current leadership is taking our country. The time for political correctness is over. I believe Nebraska values far exceed what we are seeing happen across our country. My wife and I grew up in Fort Calhoun Ne., we've been together since high school. We now have young children and I am so fortunate to live in Nebraska where the people still have great values, ethics, and take pride in self reliance and the freedom and liberty our country was founded on. We need to immediately engage in, and win the fight for the direction and soul of our great nation. The socialist express that is roaring down the tracks must be derailed now. and immediately drastically reduce the size and scope of government at all levels to reasonable and accountable levels. I need to succeed in the may 13th primary take on our fight."[1]
