I am running for office to defend the values of the Constitution: limited government, freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, economic freedom, freedom to keep and bear arms, etc. A smaller government makes for a more free nation. The proper role of government is to defend life and liberty, not to guarantee happiness. I am running for office because over the past several years I have understood that our country and state are in a crisis, beset by forces that intend to use the power of government to coerce ideologies on us. I am known for standing up for what’s right, and I prefer death over dishonor.
1.) Upholding the Constitution. That means all the Constitution, including full support of the 2nd Amendment.
2.) Defending Life. Human life is precious because it has dignity given by God. Life begins at conception and ends at natural death.
3.) Secure the border.
4.) School choice. Parents raise children, not the government.
5.) Fiscal responsibility. Balance the budget. Shrink government and reduce waste. Return money to taxpayers.
