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.

AGRICULTURE

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.

AMERICA FIRST

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.

HEALTHCARE REFORM

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.

QUALITY EDUCATION

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.

    I applaud your bold statements and support of our constitution. I am greatly saddened and sickened that the only other reaction on this site is one of the liberal trolls who have done nothing but drag this country to its basest level. Good luck today and I will make sure that I vote.

    You are wrong on every issue. I sure hope you lose but sadly this district is full of racist Trump supporters, just like you are so you have a good chance here. Good luck to you, I sure hope You lose. People who share your views are the last people this country needs leading us. You say nothing about climate change or the environment. Let me guess, like most republicans you don’t believe its real or happening. Meaning if you get to congress you will work for big oil and coal companies. You will full your pockets with their money instead of caring about future generations of Americans. I want my kids to have a future, and my kid’s kids to have a future. You are more worried about what the demographics are like in America when my children are grown up than you are worried about how the world’s climate will look. Trumpism is wrong, the only reason Trumps base will never leave him is because of blatant racism. Trump gives racists a voice again, he spreads hate and lies more than any president has ever lied. The ignorant biggoted people who support Trump are the same people who will support you. All you republicans do in this Trump era is feast on white anxiety. Uneducated morons mostly who follow like sheep just because somebody is promising to keep the bad bad brown people away. You may win my distract and get the seat this year but your party will not maintain power for long. It starts this fall when you lose the majority and gets worse in 2020 when the Trump nightmare ends because he is defeated. Young people will be motivated to vote and people with your stances will not win. You can keep your old white biggoted supporters who know nothing other than their small rural lives. Most of them have only seen a handful of colored people in their whole life but they are still experts on the subject and they know they are better than non-whites. I hate what your party has become, your party has become completely corrupt, working for the wrong people for a long time. If I was you I would keep running on the anti-immigrant platform you are, cash in on that white anxiety and flat out racism. When you get to congress you can work for big corporations and cut their taxes, you can work for big oil/coal. You can work for huge corrupt insurance companies and the big corrupt pharmacy industry. You will become very rich like your republican friends when u go to work for all these filthy rich corporations. Like me I know most Americans just love having to pay $200 bucks just for seeing a doctor for a simple illness like strep throat, of you need surgery or something good luck, even a simple outpatient procedure is at least $3,000-$6,000. The new republican party for you, slaves to filthy rich special interests, working tirelessly for them and doing nothing for average hard working Americans who haven’t seen their pay rise for decades now. Your party is going to run this once great country into the ground in a hurry if you can. If you want to really do right by the voters in this distract you should drop out of the race. Your party does not care the slightest amount about poor struggling people who have very little oppurtunities for work, which is a very large percent of the distract. So I really really hope you lose again, and if you do please dont run again in the future. America does not need anymore people in government who share Trumps views and turn a blind eye to his corruptness and constant lies and join him in the spreading of hate and racism. You will never get my vote and I promise to do my best to get as many others as I can to vote against you. No more ignorance, no more rich powerful companies coming first over the average man. They can have more tax breaks when they learn how to pay people a livable wage! Might cost some CEO’s some money but I think with all the raises they have given themselves over the last 3 decades they can handle it don’t you? Of course you don’t, you are hoping to be in Washington working for them real soon.
