NATIONAL DEFENSE – Our nation is under constant threat of attack by terrorists and our nuclear-armed adversaries (Russia, China, North Korea, and possibly soon, Iran). If we, as a nation, are unable to successfully defend our country from terrorism and/or nuclear attack, then nothing else—the economy, education, healthcare, energy—matters. As your Senator, I will make it my first and foremost priority to strengthen and support our military in every way possible. President Trump has done an outstanding job re-energizing our armed forces, but we must do everything we can to make sure our military remains the best in the world, and an overwhelming deterrent to any act of aggression.
LIFE – Unlike the democrat-socialist party, that defends and enables Planned Parenthood, I will make the defunding of that despicable group a top priority. I happen to think the entire organization is evil to its core, and should not get a penny of taxpayer money. I certainly don't want them to get a penny of my tax dollars! I will also do all I can as a Senator to advance pro-life legislation and policies in our country. As a Christian, this is a moral imperative for me!
build the wall! – The democrat-socialist party’s efforts to block President Trump’s construction of a wall on our southern border are simply shameful. For decades, they have subjected our nation to an "invasion" by illegal aliens, some of whom are likely terrorists. This is truly a national security crisis! As your Senator, I will fight to close our borders immediately. And I will never reward anyone who entered our country illegally with anything other than a prompt return to their homeland. A sovereign nation must have safe, strong, and clearly defined borders, or it ceases to be a nation!
LIMITED GOVERNMENT – If you haven't noticed lately, we've got way too much "government" in this country! If you don't think so, just ask the man who had his backyard declared a "wetland" by the EPA, thus making it subject to regulation. Or ask any conservative group or individual who was targeted by IRS thugs during the Obama years. If that's not enough, there's always the NSA, FCC, USDA, or any other of a long, sorry list of bloated, wasteful, and unnecessary federal bureaucracies. President Trump has us moving in the right direction of removing crippling regulations, but we need to accelerate that process and take a wrecking ball to much of the DC “bureaucracy.” It's high time for the government—at all levels—to get off the backs and out of the pockets of taxpayers!
SECOND AMENDMENT – The democrat-socialist party’s war on the Second Amendment can be easily explained: they want us defenseless and subservient in the face of a powerful, and potentially tyrannical, government. To me it’s very simple—if we lose our right to keep and bear arms, we will lose all of our other rights. As your Senator, I will be a tireless opponent of all “red flag” laws and others that infringe on gun ownership and usage. I will also be a strong, consistent defender of the Second Amendment, gun ownership, and gun usage.
HEALTHCARE – Obamacare is not about healthcare—it's about power and government control. That’s exactly why it was passed by the democrat-socialist party (without a single Republican vote). Obamacare is destroying a healthcare system that, while not perfect, was nevertheless functioning adequately and providing the great majority of Americans with effective, affordable care. Now, we have a nightmare that is slowly spreading like a cancer through our healthcare system and economy. If not repealed, it will destroy more and more businesses and eventually collapse our economy. I will fight relentlessly to rid our nation of this disaster, and replace it with common-sense, free-market alternatives!
VETERANS – We owe everything to the brave men and women who have served in our military over the years. They put their lives on the line, and many lost their lives, for our safety and freedom. We certainly owe them the very best healthcare, educational opportunities, and employment options we as a nation can provide. As a Senator, I will be a staunch advocate for our veterans and fight to make sure they receive the best care and assistance possible!
FBI, DOJ ABUSE – The FBI and DOJ were thoroughly politicized, corrupted, and weaponized during the Obama Administration. These agencies, in collusion with the Clinton campaign, concocted an incredibly elaborate scheme to remove a duly-elected President from office. It was nothing less than an attempted coup! This is outrageous, and the key players in this attempt should be thoroughly investigated, and charged if found they acted unlawfully. As your Senator, I will work vigorously to make sure these abuses never happen again!
TERM LIMITS – Our Founding Fathers never intended for politicians to go to DC and stay for decades, amass personal fortunes, become an elite “ruling class,” and then lord it over the rest of us. How dareCongress make laws and then exempt themselves! We should establish 12-year term limits for Senators and Representatives immediately, and require them to live by the same laws they pass for us. I’ll sponsor legislation to do so!
ENERGY – President Trump’s policies have placed our nation in a very strong position in terms of energy production. We need to keep it that way! We must never again allow the EPA, over-zealous environmentalists, and the democrat-socialist party to shackle our country’s energy output. To do so would not only cripple our economy, but also compromise our national security. I'll work tirelessly to keep all of our energy sources at full production!
EDUCATION – We need to abolish the Federal Department of Education and return decision-making in our schools to parents, teachers, and administrators at the city/county level. This will not only save money but also improve the quality of education. Also, since a healthy dose of competition usually leads to better products/services at lower prices, we need to allow parents the choice of where to send their children by providing school vouchers. We should also encourage the growth and expansion of charter schools.
TAXES, SPENDING, AND THE DEBT CEILING – Our federal government spends way too much (much of it frivolously and wastefully), and we payway too much in taxes. As your Senator, I will never vote to increase taxes, spending, or the debt ceiling, and will always vote to cut taxes and spending. Period.
MEDICARE, MEDICAID, SOCIAL SECURITY – These programs, while well-intended, have been plagued throughout their histories by questionable design, abuse, and fraud. There is much doubt about their long-term financial solvency. While I truly think the "bleeding" could be stopped by small tweaks here and there, along with a real crackdown on fraud and abuse, I believe the best thing we can do to sustain and improve these programs is to grow our economy! If we can increase the revenues that fund these programs by growing and strengthening our economy, there will be a much better chance of their long-term survival.
ISRAEL– Israel has long been one of our most dependable and courageous allies. President Trump was absolutely right to move our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. As your Senator, I will always stand in solidarity with Israel, and insist that the United States support our long-time ally militarily and economically.
