Everyone serves something or someone. All too often in politics it is ones own ambition or an industry to which one belongs. Mike is not a banker or a lawyer. Mike has no “nest to feather” at the expense of others. Make no mistake, those who favor one industry or group over another do so at the expense of everyone else.
Mike does have a dominant life long passion for serving his community. From the time Mike has been old enough to volunteer to serve others, and his community, he has volunteered his time, money and expertise.
Mike believes it is the duty of state legislators to stand in the gap between citizens and unjust and immoral acts. The best expression of this concept was actually written in the year 1550 called “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate.” This is what we need today!
Mike Warner is committed to being this kind of legislator. One who does not just surrender to unjust and immoral laws but rather stand up between the higher authority and the people of the State of Tennessee.
Why am I running for State Representative? To be honest I fear for our state and our nation.
As Thomas Jefferson, the LEAST RELIGIOUS of our founding fathers, said:
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever. Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Establish a law for educating the common people. This it is the business of the state and on a general plan.”
