Where I Stand On The Issues
BORDER SECURITY & IMMIGRATION
America is a country of immigrants, and we celebrate that diversity. However, immigrants should come to the United States legally, and illegal immigration should not be rewarded. Congress should pass legislation to immediately release funding to construct a wall spanning our southern border, deport illegal aliens who commit crimes, and eliminate any federal funding for sanctuary cities or states.
RIGHT TO LIFE
We were endowed by our Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The first of these rights is life. We should protect and value life from the very first heart beat to the last.
America’s national security and quality of life depend upon our agricultural prowess. Free and fair trade is needed to expand American exports into new markets, and trade deals should ensure American products are not at a competitive disadvantage. Continued work to eliminate regulations and lower taxes will help agriculture thrive.
Foreign policy should always put America first. We should stand firm behind our allies and firmly against our enemies. America should lead with strength and ensure that our national sovereignty is preserved. Threats to our security should be swiftly eliminated and we should aggressively protect our interests. The United States can achieve peace through strength.
LOWER TAXES & LESS GOVERNMENT
Americans deserve to keep more of their hard-earned money. Taxes are too high and unfair. We must eliminate the death tax, continue to work to lower taxes, and eliminate burdensome regulations. Congress needs to pass a balanced budget, cut spending, and start to reduce our national debt immediately. Our children should not inherit our debts.
RIGHT TO KEEP & BEAR ARMS
We have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. This right should not be infringed. Firearms are the first line of defense against violent criminals and no law abiding American should have barriers erected which impair their self-defense.
HONORING OUR VETERANS
America is free because of the brave. We owe the best to our men and women who have risked their lives to protect us. Veterans Affairs needs a complete overhaul. Our veterans deserve the same, if not better, healthcare than the plans enjoyed by Members of Congress.
Our healthcare system is deteriorating, insurance rates are on the rise, and accessibility to services is becoming more difficult. Congress should allow a more competitive market, even across state lines, abolish the employer mandates, reduce coverage requirements to allow Americans to choose the plan which best fits their needs, and require more transparency in the healthcare market, such as price disclosure so that consumers may accurately compare prices.
Parents should have more options available to educate their children. School choice will enable parents to choose which educational setting will best help their child achieve their own American dream. We can greatly reduce our federal Department of Education and send more funding back to states in the form of block grants to allow state governments to better educate children.
