Highlands, NJ — Republican congressional candidate and Highlands Mayor Anna Little has received an endorsement from former Speaker of the House and General Chairman of American Solutions, Newt Gingrich.  The endorsement comes as no surprise to those who understand that both Little and Gingrich stand on strong conservative values.

Fundamentally, both Gingrich and Little believe in limited government which gives power to the individual rather than the state.  According to Mayor Little, “After enumerating specific rights retained by the people in the first eight amendments, the Ninth Amendment and the Tenth Amendment spelled out the principles of limited government…In essence both amendments state that the people retain certain rights, and that those powers not granted to the federal government and not prohibited to the states, are reserved to the states or the people.”

Gingrich and Little also share similar concerns for the economy and job growth throughout the nation.  As expressed by Gingrich, “America’s economic woes are not due to the excesses of capitalism, as the left claims, but instead due to abandoning supply-side, strong dollar policies for easy credit, deficit spending, and stimulus.”  When explaining New Jersey’s economic woes, Little commented that “All levels of Government, from the Federal Government to the States to local municipalities, need to work cooperatively to lower the crushing tax burden on our families.” She believes that out-of-control taxation and regulation penalizes America’s workers and businesses.

Mayor Little joins Gingrich in opposing the government’s takeover of healthcare.  “Americans have a Constitutional right to choose their own healthcare insurance and medical providers, or fore go insurance coverage and contract directly with medical providers, free from government mandates with the resulting fines and possible imprisonment for noncompliance.” Little has made numerous appearances in Trenton to oppose the controversial bill.

As an immigration attorney, Anna Little thoroughly understands the need for a secure border and Gingrich artfully states Little’s position when he says, “America is a nation of immigrants… However, America is also a nation of laws.  We must have a lawful process of immigration and should not enact policies that encourage illegal immigration…We must insist the government live up to its promise to the American people to secure the border and adequately police business hiring."

Gingrich and Little agree on a multitude of issues because they recognize that Washington does not seem serious about border security while dominating its own people through excessive taxation and regulation.  In endorsing Anna Little and her candidacy, Gingrich has recognized an ally—one who devotes herself to preserving the inalienable rights of American citizens.
