The Founding Documents and Mike's Suggested Readings

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting this important section of my website.

During my time in Sacramento, I have made it a priority to remember those in leadership and government who have paved the way for the prosperity of our great State and Nation.

As part of this commitment, I wanted to share readings from my own library that I have investigated and studied over the years. The ideals and principles in these books and documents have laid the foundation for our government and continue to influence decisions being made today. They help us understand what was at stake then and now – our liberty – and why it is our duty to God, our families, and America to defend it.

Ronald Reagan once said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

I hope the readings below help us as we take on this noble task.

Thank you,

Senator 23rd District
