“I’m tired of watching our country being torn to shreds by those who think the answer is more government debt and control. I’m tired of being in bondage to a tax system that robs U.S. citizens like the King of England did before the Revolution,” Norris writes.”I’m tired of watching our sovereignty being sold by foreign loans and loose borders. And I will not sit back and merely watch this decay and degradation of the U.S. and then hand it over to my children and grandchildren to deal with.”
In 2008, Norris’ endorsement of Mike Huckabee propelled the former Arkansas governor to the top tier of GOP candidates and resulted in his best fundraising day ever. He then appeared in an ad with Huckabee, who explained his answer to secure borders in America during a presidency would be two words: “Chuck … Norris.”
The ad, which has been viewed millions of times, still is popular online years after the GOP nominating process ultimately picked Arizona Sen. John McCain:
Norris continued, “That is why my wife Gena and I have committed the rest of our lives to help Old Glory rise again to her heights of splendor. And that is why we are endorsing and standing with Newt Gingrich, because we believe he can lead all of us who have committed to the same.”
