Immigration

I believe LEGAL immigration is an amazing opportunity for those seeking a greater life. Immigration is beneficial to all parties when its done according to the laws of our nation. I believe we have room to reform our current citizenship process to better serve the legal applicants. I believe those pushing for amnesty fail to realize that it only disenfranchises those who have spent the time and money to uphold the letter of the law. The United States is a nation of law, the land of opportunity, and a beacon of hope for the oppressed.

Healthcare

I currently see our medical freedoms are in danger. Elected officials are actively calling for mandated vaccinations, creating registries for the immune or vaccinated, and forced, ongoing testing for our children before they are allowed to reenter public schools. In these times we, as Americans, need to stand together as our elected officials are currently using fear and misinformation to subvert the power WE THE PEOPLE have bestowed upon them. I vow to fight the ever, overreaching bureaucracy that is plaguing our Republic.

Healthcare

I am 100% Pro-Life, and believe life starts at conception. I believe life is all about choices. When you make the choice to lie together, you have accepted the potential consequences of your actions. “There are no unwanted children, only unwilling parents”-unknown. And according to Mother Teresa”A nation that kills its children in the womb has lost its soul”. We must stand in the gap for the innocent and I’ll fight with all my soul to stop the lie of Pro- Choice!.

Guns

I think the second amendment is self explanatory, “Shall not be infringed”. The States requiring a permit for concealed carry is a "justification" to tax legal gun owners. That is why I would work to bring forth a national, constitutional carry bill. Giving legal and rightful gun owners the protection they deserve for practicing their second amendment right. The founding fathers knew the only way to keep the government from becoming tyrannical was to have an armed citizenry.

I believe setting term limits carries merit and may well be what is needed to end the political gridlock we see today. I would add that by making congress less lucrative, we could ensure that those seeking office would only be doing so for the benefit of those they represent. I believe congress should take a substantial pay cut, they should only be allowed a raise equal to the cost of living increase, and should not be eligible for pension or retirement. I would seek to make these changes retroactive so that the money could be allocated for better use.

Budget

As we all know, our national debt is at unstable levels. I firmly believe it’s time to shut down the printing presses, and come together for an actual solution. I believe we need rein in spending and seek a balanced budget proposal. The future of our children and grand children is being diminished to nothing more than a dream.

Education

The future of our nation relies on our ability to give our children the education they deserve. I believe that the best way to do this is to get the federal government out of the way, and let our teachers and local school districts build the framework for our curriculum. Our teachers know the needs of their students better than any bureaucrat ever could. I would like to work with educators to put an emphasis on teaching American History and Civics from Elementary through High School. Our children should be well versed on the limits of our government and how our checks and balances work. Coming from a trade background, I want to see our students encouraged to look at alternatives to traditional secondary education. Many companies are in desperate need of tradesmen/women. As the average age of these workers rise, so does the need and the compensation of the positions that must replaced.
