The Declaration of Independence, "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed ... But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security ... that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may have right to do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

You know where my heart is. You know it is with this great Republic of ours and its freedom loving citizens. I believe God had his hand in the Making of America. We have the greatest document ever written by wise and virtuous men and the greatest country in the world because of freedom loving people like you, the freedom loving people of America. I for one will continue to fight to protect your freedoms from government encroachment. It is America's commitment to that freedom, personal responsibility and moral government that make us strong. Not more government. We must reign in the courts from the Unconstitutional over-reach.

I love this Republic. I have spent most of my career in defending this Republic and the Rule of Law, former President of the Arizona State Senate, former Chief Deputy of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and as a Judge. I have been shot at and missed and shot at and hit being critically wounded in defense of our laws and citizens.

I served 11 years in the Arizona Legislature including President of the Senate and 8 of those years as Appropriations Chairman promoting strong fiscal accountability in the process.

I served as Chief Deputy for America's toughest Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the 4th largest Sheriff's office in the nation (where I was the author of Tent City, No smoking jails, and many other cost saving and crime producing programs).

North Mesa Justice of the Peace, where I placed fairness and Justice under the law as guiding principles.

As Director of Arizona's MVD, where I eliminated over 3 million transactions, developed Service Arizona, cut wait times from 2 hours average to 18 minutes average and where I have been vigilant in service to our citizens, in reducing cost, improving efficiencies, requiring accountability and operating with transparency.

As the Senate President, I defended our core values that our Founding Fathers so long ago sacrificed and committed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor for.

For God, Family and the Republic, Stay free, stay safe and never surrender ... God Bless America.

In Liberty,


Former Senator Russell Pearce, author of SB1070, Employer Sanctions, former Chief Deputy of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, and Judge
