Traveled to Mandan, North Dakota where we met with Mike Liffrig, who was the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate here in Campaign 2004, and his wife Julie. Although Mr. Liffrig lost, I was tremendously impressed with he and his wife’s committment to sacrifice to make this a better country. Julie, for instance, often traveled campaigning with her 9 children. And she told me her goal each day was to make sure at least 150 people on the street knew about her husband. (My wife Liz has been, oh, a little shy of that number each day.) Mike, who has a degree from Michigan Law School, is Pro-Life and and believes in a Constitutional Amendment to support: “One Man-One Woman Marriage.” Also, besides Julie’s political and motherhood experience (a bumper sticker on her vehicle says: “Motherhood: Changing Society One Diaper At A Time”), she was also a volunteer in the Peace Corps. Julie worked in central Africa where she said the average income was a mere $150 a year. She explained parents there seldom have medicine for their children, while we in America often spend money lavishly on ourselves — without a social justice thought.
